Spring/Summer Fashion Trends 2012
With summer in the offing, it’s about time we get ready to get rid of thick layered outfits, long trench coats and weighty fabrics to embrace the comfort of light, flirty, cheerful trends that spring has to offer.
Here are the popular trends of spring/summer 2012 to get you prepped for the coming season!
Back to 60’s and 70’s
1. Peter Pan Collar
As we know, fashion repeats itself periodically and 2012 steers us right into the swinging 60s. One of the elements of this fashion era in vogue this season is the Peter Pan Collar.
The Peter Pan collar adds a great deal of chic factor to any dress, top, jacket, jumpsuit … you name it !
If you are the kind of person who reminisces about the past as much as you appreciate the present then flared pants are your right choice. You can rock this retro look with high pointed pumps or with platform shoes.
Although low waist pants are still very much in fashion, high waist cropped pants also make their way from the 70’s into 2012’s hot list.
Be it simple or intricate, soft or bold, classic or contemporary, printed fabrics can make or break a statement. Spring /Summer 2012‘s fashion is a blend of one or more combinations of these prints…
Cocktail your outfit with a combination of thin, thick, horizontal, vertical or curved stripes to add drama to your look. Take into consideration the effect of the direction of the stripes on your figure. Vertical stripes are slimming and horizontal stripes make you look heavier and a combination of both might as well make you look sexy !
You may not be a fan of geometry but these circular, rectangular and/or triangular motifs on your outfits will surely fetch you an A+ for keeping up with the latest trends!
Now that we are done discussing geometry, let’s move on to botany with our main focus being ‘flora’. Yes, you are right … floral prints are extremely cute, girly and so much in verve this season. Think floral prints on sundresses, maxi dresses, minis , shirts or even pants !
It’s about time I change the topic lest I get too nerdy on you 😉
Bohemian prints are all the rage this season if you would like to adapt an alternative organic look. Go for bright colors in bohemian prints to add some perk to your outfit.
I happened to stumble upon this trend on runways,magazines,red carpets,streets,stores and couldn’t help but fall in love with it each and every time. Peplum has the knack of adding instant drama to an otherwise drab/simple skirt , top , dress or even pants.
The color trends for this season include warm bright hues that capture the vividness of the coming season.
The must have color for this spring/summer is this beautiful, bright coral tangerine orange.
Go lambent with bright neon colors or stay classic with pastel undertones or mix them together ,for variety is the key this season.
LBD … How about LWD??
A little white dress (LWD) makes it to our chart lists as one of the must-haves for this season.
Laced outfits look extremely feminine and here is a chance for you to add that little bit of sexiness teamed with the delicate factor of lace!
Hope this helped 🙂 Thanks for reading and stay tuned for further posts !!!
