Winter is almost over and will soon be a thing of the past. Although we are still bundled up in our thickest and warmest of coats, we are now thinking about the warmth and colorful promise of springtime. As we are ushered into the new season, so are the upcoming fashion trends. Here are some of the hot fashion trends for this spring of 2012.
HOT FASHION TRENDS FOR SPRING 2012
1. Geometric Color Blocking
Color blocking has been really prominent in 2011, and it’s still going on strong in 2012. However, we will see a new twist in this trend. By using different geometric patterns, your outfits will look fun and playful.
2. Print Overload
Prints will categorically make your outfit more interesting. Try mixing your solid colored items with printed pieces in order to give your outfit a youthful and girly appearance. Remember that the bigger prints will make you look bigger. If you are a bit on the short side (like me!), or a bit on the heavier side, going for a more subtle print is a safer alternative. But if you are a bit adventurous in your style choices, you can still experiment with different prints and textures.
3. Soft, Romantic Colors
Soft, pastel colors bring out the ultra-feninime side in you. Soft pinks, sweet peach tones and even baby blue are colors which will take the lead this spring. Choose romantic frills and ruffles as well if you want to go for a romantic and feminine look.
4. The Color of The Year Is: Orange
Orange is the reigning color this year. From soft orange tones to fiery neon shades, this color will set you on fire and warm you up when spring comes. Invest in a pretty little orange dress, and you are good to go.
5. The Sporty Look Is In
Spring takes on a much more playful look this year as many looks on the runway prefer the sporty silhouette. From bodycon (short for body-consious aka figure hugging) dresses, luxurious hooded sweatshirts to track-style looking bottoms, this trend will make you want to go and hit the gym.
6. A New Twist on The Peplum
This year’s twist on the peplum is a bit sleeker and smaller. Although this trend is a bit of a hit or miss, this style takes a girly spin on the usual structured and macho like elements.
So, which trend are you most excited about? Spring 2012 will certainly bring us a lot of things to look forward to. . Whatever your fashion preferences are, it’s always best to have your own style and make your own version of these new trends.
