Spring-piration!

My top picks for Spring 2012 trends!

Which one is your favourite?

1. Flower Power
Yes, floral is back this spring - but this time its bigger and bolder than ever. Long gone are the days of the ultra-feminine flirty floral, in 2012 we are seeing a much more vibrant and flower-powered update on this classic trend. The colour selection is endless and the tropical floral print is being embraced with open arms. One definate staple for spring (before it gets too hot) are floral pants. Dressed them up with a simple blazer and heels for a chic look, or dress them down with a flowly top and strappy sandals!

2. Pastel Clash
Pastels consist of a soft palette of sorbet shades and candy hues which are sweet enough to eat! Although we’ve seen this trend throughout winter, I am sure it will follow through spring and even summer. This trend signifies femininity and also look great on any skin tone. Pastels are notorious for its ability to be colour blocked, and worn head-to-toe, yet appearing very subtle and effortless at the same time. However, if pastel on steriods is not for you, they also work amazingly with neutrals – black and grey for edge or white and nude for a more romantic look.

3. Digital Print  
Vibrant and attention grabbing digital prints are going to be everywhere this season! From pants to blouses and from tunics to shorts, this print is sure to make a huge impact. One step above florals in edgyness factor, digital prints are sure to make you stand out from the crowd!

4. Lovely in Lace
No longer reserved for wedding dresses (and the wedding night), lace is definitely a favourite this season. and is perfect for that innocent baby doll look. Even though anything lace is all the rage right now, it is especially true when it comes to 'that' black lace dress. This semi-transparent material is always undeniably sexy, and if worn correctly can exude sophistication.

5. Minty Fresh
Mint green is exploding on to the spring/summer trend list! This lovely shade of blue-green blend exudes a light and airy freshness. I am a fan of mint-on-mint, but it also works amazingly with many colours and textures, especially white lace or even metallic silver! 

6. Metallic Shine
The Olympics may be over, but metallics are also making a statement in gold, silver and bronze. From shimmering pants to leather shift dresses and flowy fall length gowns. If you have a warmer complextion go for gold, and for pale skin, silver tends to be more complementary. And for those who find head-to-toe metallic to be a little daunting - don't stress! You can keep it simple by playing with metallic accessories like a clutch, a belt and of course shoes!

  1. Over in the states it's fall and I'll still be rocking my floral jeans. Don't care if they're "out" in the fall, I still love 'em. I suggest you get some! Also, the mint trend is so lovely. I really want some mint jeans.
