Stop! Drop! and Roll! Spring 2012 season is all about feverishly vivid hues of neon, prints and interestingly sizzling silhouettes. As we emerge into the new season, the very popular color-blocking is making a comeback this season while prints are making an even stronger statement. Take a look at my review of what's trending in fashion this upcoming season.
- Color-blocking- This trend happens to be one of my favorites, so I am very excited it is making its way back into the closets of so many audacious fashion lovers around the world. Color-blocking was first introduced Fall 2011 season and refers to wearing bold solid hues in a garment or outfit. An example of this would be, pairing a blue shoes, with a yellow belt and completing the look with a purple blouse. It is very easy look to achieve, but if you are intimidated by this bold look, you can always start by adding a colored accessory to a very color neutral outfit. Fashion transcends clothing so keep in mind hair and skin color plays a large role in pulling off certain color combinations. Try on as many combos as possible and find the one that best suits you.
- Fluorescent Pant- This season it's all about vivid shades of green, orange, pink and blue. The skinny pant has been a popular trend for a few seasons , but now they are arriving in outrageous neon shades. They are fun, hip and a must have for the season.
- Birds- The bird is king this season. Marc Jacobs uses a colorful, abstract print, while Carolina Herrera chooses more literal avian illustrations—and there are dozens of other interpretations offered in between. I like how it adds such a vintage feel to certain garments. I like it.
5. The Jock- This season, designers use mesh to express their ongoing interest in athleticism. The perforated fabric forms skirts, dresses, jackets, and even accessories, like oversized day clutches and sporty heels.
6. Chevrons and Zigzag-
