Trend Alert Spring 2012

The Spring 2012 reports are out. Spring's almost here and its time to pack those super ginormous chunky woollens inside and say hello to Spring-Summer. While it is important that we go by the international fashion scene but my idea is always to customize a trend to make it workable for your climatic and geographical situation. Its okay if you aren't so sure about sporting a trend, save it for later or sport it in small doses. You do not need a complete wardrobe make over necessarily. Take your basic pieces and add bits of spring-a-licious trends to it and watch the outfit shine through! Now on to some key trends you're going to be witnessing this season and you might want to be a part of :)
  • The Roaring '20s: I wasn't so sure of what this trend would entail but looks like the red lipped, jazz loving, hip swinging era is back. Art deco goes glitz and glam, so take your sequined, bejeweled pieces from the last holiday season and do it with style in the Roaring '20s.

 If full glam deco is not your style, try smaller doses of the trend. This rare deco embellished tunic dress fits the bill. Quite literally! :D
  • The Neons: Yes, we've seen neons do the rounds in the international scene but a little bit of neon to your wardrobe this spring might just be the pinch of style you need. This fluro trim across body bag gives you that dash of neon without blinding people or making you too conscious of sporting such a bright color. The brogue detailing just helps! :)

  • Pastels and ice cream colors: Its not such a contradiction with the neon because the two trends co-exist and unless you decide to mash up the two in an over-the-top manner, there is no worry there. :) I like calling it the ice cream color trend coz a lot of fashion forecasts rightly call it so. These frosty shades of peaches, pale pinks, sky and azure blues, mint greens are as cooling for the season as they are to the sight. :)
Call it the peach fluid color but this blazer sums up this trend for me. Of course add to it, these mint patent leather oxfords and I'm good to go!
  • Peplum: Balenciaga did it and peplum style of a short over skirt with a fitted jacket or a blouse attached, is back and to me its cuteness to the power infinity. Ok, yuck, I didn't say that! But no really, the style is making me want to go back to the 50's!
Its safe to say that apart from these bobbing trends, the maxi dresses for their liquid feel and comfort continue to make waves. Draped detailing in long tunics and exaggerated hemlines will also make news in my opinion.
Go ahead and try a bit of each trend this season, I say!
