2012 Fashion Trends

Last year it was hard to ignore the main trend was BOLD! From colour block, wearing bright and bold coloured outfits or items with a colour block in the design. Patterend shorts and leggings were also huge last year and there was also influence from stripes. 

As I previously mentioned on my blog, this year has turned 360 on it's booty and we are already seeing a strong pastel colours influence in spring 2012's fashion trending.

Romantic silhouettes will also be very popular this season using different textured fabrics, rouching and beading.
Floral and animal prints have always been around on the catwalk but this year we are definitely seeing a lot more tribal prints coming in to play. I will definitely be embracing this trend this year. 
Remember tribal prints don't always have to be dull colours like brown, khaki, black etc. Here is me when we went to Marrakech last year in my fav tribal print dress that has a modern spin on it mixing hot pink with black and white.
It has beautiful hot pink wooden beads along the neckline which add to the tribal look. This was bought last year from my fav shop TK MAXX.

Leather is another trend that is going to be used in the summer this year, not too sure how practical this is. From what i've seen so far it's taking the form of leather shorts, baggy loose flared leather trousers and leather waistcoats/blazers... jury is still out on this one.
The autumn will focus on jewel tones such as red, purple and teal colours.
Ivory and gold are also key colours to look out for this year, happy trending!
