We're going wild for ASOS's new sustainable Spring/Summer Africa collection, which just launched today at ASOS.com. The 21-piece line includes crop tops, shorts, shirt dresses, and trousers featuring the bold patterns we're craving this season — we're also suckers for the cute giraffe and zebra prints. If you're not familiar with the line, you'll be happy to hear that the ASOS Africa collection is made in collaboration with SOKO Kenya, providing opportunities for underprivileged communities to establish sustainable, modern business through local craftsmanship. Additionally, a portion of each purchase goes to support local communities in Africa. We love fashion for a cause, and if you do too, check out the top three looks below, then click the slideshow to see the rest of the collection.

- How cute is this bold striped suit set? The short-sleeved jacket is ideal for dressing on a hot Summer day.

Is it safe to say that mullets aren't all bad? Case in point: we're loving the high-low, business-meets-party hemline for Spring, and luckily it doesn't require a pair of scissors or an achy breaky heart. It's a flirty, playful look that shows the perfect amount of skin without being too daring, and can still be modest enough for the office. We've already shown you how the asymmetrical trend looks when taken to the streets, and now we're making it work for seven days in seven ways — gleaning some inspiration from the styling capabilities of Nicole Richie, Kate Bosworth, Brooklyn Decker, and more.

Just as much as celebs love Theodora & Callum's printed scarves, they also adore Blu Moon's flowy prints. Everyone from Whitney Port to Jamie Chung to Heidi Klum has been spotted wearing the brand's Summer Lovin' dresses, both in maxi and mini hemlines. Vanessa Hudgens has got to be the biggest fan — she's sported Blu Moon's bohemian prints multiple times both on the red carpet and off. Step inside to see who else loves the label and to shop exact pieces for your Spring and Summer days.
There's little fault we can ever find with Eva Mendes. Even when she's shopping at Whole Foods, she manages to effortlessly nail that sexy off-duty Rita Hayworth look. By pairing a crisp white Express tie-front blouse with a sweet daisy-print skirt, Eva looks both Spring-ready and vintage chic. This sexy daytime ensemble is totally easy to achieve; Eva only had to style five key retro-inspired pieces to evoke a '50s siren vibe. Look to her updated take on cat-eye sunglasses via her favorite Thierry Lasry frames, her nude Christian Louboutin espadrille wedges, and that ultracool python-embossed Prada bag for old-school accent inspiration.
