The trends this summer are fun, colourful and just plain awesome! We thought of giving you a short report on the trends we are going gaga over. Trust us you will find something you just can't wait to try.
Pastels are a re-occurring trend in summer fashion so it's no great surprise that they are back in vogue again in 2012. Feminine and pristine this trend is probably one of the most suited for summer. Peppermint green, powder pink, sunflower yellow, crisp coral and frosty blue are some of the colours rocking the catwalks. What’s not to love?
If there was one predominant trend saturating the Summer 2012 it had to be NEON. After all the nude tones we’ve seen in the past few seasons, a bit of color is definitely refreshing. This summer the color splash is coming in with a bang. Summer’s 2012. This trend is all about going bold and bright. So have fun with neon! :)
# Tip: Pastels and Neons are poles apart yet they can be brought together in the color blocking trend. It can be worn in 3 variations pastel on pastel, neon on neon or pastel with neon. You can also use these colors as accents.
Nanette Lepore Spring Summer 2012
The twenties has never been forgotten, at least fashion wise. Typically the 1920's style dress sits just below the knee or above the ankle. This old school trend is rocking our summer with prints, metallic tones and pastel colours being incorporated into the trend and it is one of the sultry and sexy styles for summer. Every year we dig those Maxi dresses out from the back of our wardrobes and feel effortlessly elegant again. Our favourite summer items the Maxi dress or midi length dress are so fantastically versatile. You can go from a day time look to an evening outfit with ease by simply changing your footwear from sandals to wedges.
Ralph Lauren Spring Summer 2012
When do patterns ever go out of fashion? The summer was filled with patterns, some of which we liked and some just didn’t catch our fancy (eg: scarf print). Are you a print person like us?
a. Conversation starters. (Tropical prints)
Wearing prints of food, animals or other objects are a playful way to bring print into your wardrobe this summer. Team it with vintage accessories and cat’s eye sunglasses and you are way to go!
Dolce Gabbana Spring Summer2012
b. Scarf print
This print has already taking over high street shops. Scarf print is a fantastic, quirky and affordable trend to keep on top of. It is more commonly featured on silk or sheer fabric and looks great worn formally. However it also looks just even for a casual look. Even though we are not huge fans of this trend the plus point is that you don’t need much accessorizing since the print itself makes a statement by itself.
Dolce Gabbana Spring Summer 2012
Florals always scream ‘summer’, don’t they? Go for printed fabrics or choose decorative appliqué florals, anything goes. We have so many floral print clothes in our wardrobe that we can actually divide our wardrobe into 2 sections, florals and others! :P
So there is no stopping you taking the floral print and rocking it like you do every summer! But just always remember less is more when it comes to print.
d. Tribal prints:
For some reason whenever we here tribal prints we think of Africa. Happens to you too no? Animal prints and tribal patterns are as eye catching as ever this year. Think big zebra prints, khaki, shirts and jackets.
Underwater world colors and prints, coral red, mermaid dresses has enabled fashion to finally find its Atlantis. Shimmery, shiny fabrics, scalloped trims and mermaid sequins teamed with lagoony hues are giving us that underwater love. This trend is our personal favourite. :D
6. Tangy Tangerines
You have got to accept Tangerine Tango is summer’s number one shade. And if tangerine isn’t your choice; there are plenty more orange hues to choose from. Go bold in full on orange in a jumpsuit or a flirty dress. Wear one color and look chic? How easy is that!
Flirt without saying a word in this season’s peplum skirts, dresses and tops, defined by a short flared ruffle that sits at the natural waist. This added ruffle adds a perfect ladylike flair to your ensemble. Slimming your waistline and accentuating your beautiful, womanly curves at the same time. With peplum, your silhouette will be looking fit and curvaceous in seconds.
There are two versions: fitted and flared. If you want to show off an hourglass figure, choose a fitted peplum. Flared, on the other hand, will add curves to your hips and is the perfect choice for boy-shaped bodies.
Whew! That was one long post! Let us know which of these trends are you loving this summer! :)
