Hot Fashion Trends For Spring 2012

While we are still way into the middle of winter, bundled up in the thickest and warmest of coats, we may be thinking about the warmth and colorful promise of spring. As we are ushered into the new year, so are the upcoming fashion trends. Here are some of the hot fashion trends for spring of 2012.


1. Geometric Color Blocking

Color blocking has been really famous in 2011, and it's still going strong in 2012. However, we see a new twist into this trend by using different geometric patterns that make your outfits look more playful.

2. Print Overload

Prints will definitely make your outfit more interesting. Try mixing your solid colored clothes with printed pieces in order to give a more youthful and girly appearance. Remember that bigger prints make you look bigger. If you are a bit shorter in the height department (like me!), or a bit on the heavier side, going for more subtle prints is a safer alternative. If you are a bit adventurous with your style, then you can still experiment with different prints and textures.

3. Soft, Romantic Colors

Soft, pastel colors bring out the girly side in you. Soft pinks, sweet peach colors and even baby blue, these colors will definitely take its lead this spring. Choose romantic frills and ruffles if you want to go for a sweet and girly look.

4. Color Of The Year: Go Orange!

Orange is the reigning color this year. From soft orange shades to fiery neon ones, this color will set you on fire and warm you up when spring comes. Invest in a pretty little orange dress, and you are good to go.

5. Punk Look Is out, Sporty Look Is In

Spring takes on a much more playful look this year as many looks on the runway prefer the sporty silhouette. From bodycon dresses, luxurious hooded sweatshirts to track-style looking bottoms, this trend will definitely make you want to go and hit the gym.

6. A New Twist On The Peplum

This year's twist on the peplum is a bit sleeker and smaller. Although this trend is a bit of a hit or miss, this style takes a girly spin on the usual structured and macho like elements.

So, which trend are you most excited about? Spring 2012 will certainly bring us a lot of things to anticipate for. Whatever your fashion preferences are, it's always best to have your own style and make your own versions of these new trends.
