Oh Spring, I just can’t wait for the days to start warming up, although this weekend felt lovely, and the city to be in full bloom. I’m also so excited about the up and coming spring fashion! The runways were full of revamped trends as well as innovative and fresh looks. Here are a few favorites that you most definitely should rock in Spring 2012!
1. Peplum Hems: Skirts, shirts, blazers….everything! Wow I am obsessed with this look. It’s so classic, tasteful and absolutely adorable! Did I mention the peplum shirt can help mask that lower tummy budge that you put on over the cold and harsh winter, until you shed the weight for summer! There is no set way to wear peplum, but I recommend not to pair a peplum top and bottom together. I also recommend that if you wear a peplum bottom you wear a slimming and understated top!
2. Metallic bottoms. Be sure to grab up a pair of metallic pants, shorts or skirts for this coming spring! But please wear it correctly! The common denominator, that I noticed on the runways in which designers featured metallic, was: neutral colored top. Allow the metallic bottom to be the focal point and limit distractions by featuring a neutral colored top or layers of neutrals on top!
3. Bold Prints. This is the most eye-catching trend of Spring 2012. Not only can you wear bold prints singularly, for example just a bold print pair of heels or a bold print t-shirt, but prints are being mixed and matched from head to toe! Don’t fear if two prints aren’t the same, that is part of the appeal. When wearing prints from head to toe focus on colors that coordinate between 2 or more prints to create a seamless “clash” of prints!
