Spring Fashion Trends 2012

Spring fashion is starting to filter into stores everywhere, so I thought I’d give a quick overview of what’s being forecasted as the “it” pieces for 2012. While some might look crazy, there are elements from all that can be incorporated into your wardrobe.

Metallic Basics. No, you don’t want to be head-to-toe in metallic, but adding a piece here or there can give you that little extra sparkle.

Cheerful Color Blocking. For most of us, the thought of being draped in colorful fabric is daunting. I know I feel much more comfortable in black. However, adding a colorful piece with a more neutral one can really brighten your day and bring warmth to your face.

Anoraks. These are always great jackets for spring, but now they come in beautiful colors and unique designs. A new twist on a classic design.

Super Bold Prints. Again, I tend to shy away from prints, but nothing says spring more than a colorful and playful dress. Hair, makeup, and accessories can stay neutral and the dress can be the star.

Oranges and Tangerines. These colors started popping up last spring, but now they are in full-force. I actually really love these shades and wear them in small doses. But, looking at these dresses, I think it might be time to take a bigger spoonful.

Pink Short Suits. I used to have the most adorable pink skirt suit. I got it at Merry-Go-Round (remember that place?!?!) and I loved that the jacket and skirt could be worn together, but also worked with many other items in my closet. It’s a bold move to wear a colorful suit, but you definitely get miles out of it.

Pastel Shades. Very pretty, very soft, and very romantic, these are perfect shades for those who want to play with color, but are afraid to go bold.

Colorful Camo. A more girly way to do camo (which I actually like).

Peplum skirts, shirts, and dresses. While I am not a fan of peplum on me, they can be very flattering on a lot of body types. This trend has been around for years and doesn’t show any sign of slowing down.

Judging by these trends, spring looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. I can’t wait!!
