Spring/Summer Trends 2012

We have spotted the top fashion trends for the forthcoming spring and we report them directly from the catwalk! There are many ways to be different this season and to refresh your style. Which is your favorite?

The Great Gatsby revival is here to stay. From the sexy Art Deco glitz at Gucci to the flapper-fab coctail dresses of Christian Dior, the 20’s are always elegant and classy with a touch of sexy. Daisy Buchanan wished she had it so good!

Cristobal Balenciaga continues to inspire the next generations. The catwalks of Paris and Milan were full of constructive looks that perfectly shape the body and pay tribute to our défauts. If you have slim legs try to wear structural tops and simpler midi skirts. If this is nor the case, you can embrace the trend by using full length skirts, covering everything under the waist! The perfect way to be in style and chic!

Are you tired from all the black and the grey of the winter? Lighten up your wardrobe and your mood by embracing the color-blocked looks in pale ice cream shades. Dare to match more than three nuances with matching shoes and an off cream bag and discover the innocent girl from within…

Sport look emerged as one of this season’s biggest themes in New York, with parachute dresses from Kenzo and sleek track pants from the boys at Rag & Bone. Look ready for the playing field and be sure to appear in the street style highligts of bloggers!

This season’s fashion rewards all these months of hard exercising and yoga. Expose your midriff with a short top or a wider bra and match with high waisted skirts or loose trousers.Remember how chic Sophia Lauren and Brigitte Bardot were looking. The key is to keep the belly button under wrap, exposing just a tasteful flash of skin and keep your shoulders and your back straight, as your yoga master insisted…

Most of the luxury designers did not neglect to interpret this season’s bohemian chic. From elegant flowery maxi dresses at Yves Saint Laurent to Missoni’s gupsy statements, this summer we can walk on the streets with full length skirts and multicolored earings. To finish the look don’t forget your most eccentric accessories!
