Spring Forecast: Fashion Trends

✯✯✯

From electric neons to practical pastels, Spring 2012 Fashion Week hosted colorful and wearable fashion trends. From New York to Milan, there were many noticeable patterns and trends from the designers collections.

Shocking Neons and Electric Brights were glowing at Nanette Lepore. Though we have seen this trend before, Spring 2012 viewed a more feminine nature rather than an 80’s interpretation.

Animal Prints and Tribal Patterns were let loose at Michael Kors. A trend that re-invents itself every spring, this season it looks like a lot more texture has been added. A wealth of beading, metal and wood embellish the prints.

Bold Floral Prints sprouted up at J.Crew. Floral prints in Spring…Shocking! However, this season the prints are stronger/bolder and less “pretty.” Bright colors and loud patterns engulf entire outfits, i.e pant suits and jumpers.

Pretty Pastels speckled the runway at 3.1 Phillip Lim. This was the most obvious trend for the season. Washes of lavender, spearmint and blush flooded the runways. A pastel palette in Spring is a charming bouquet of chic and feminine style.

Fall Transition: 3.1 Phillip Lim Fishtail Sweater

✯✯✯

Summer is quickly coming to an end. Transition into fall style facilely with one simple piece. A comfy knit sweater can pair with any of your summer-basics: maxi dress, maxi skirt, flirty skirt or cut-off jean shorts. Inevitably already in your closet, a heather gray sweater coordinates impeccably with many color palettes and prints.

This fine-knit fishtail sweater by 3.1 Phillip Lim adds a nice twist to the run-of-the-mill sweater. The fishtail detail provides a modern edge and complimentary shape. Pair this piece with Fall’s snakeskin pant or leather shorts for an effortlessly casual style.
