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

Try These Old Fashion Bread Recipes For Something Different - They Are Yummy!

I love breads of almost any kind. I especially enjoy going back to my old recipes from time to time. Try these for some delicious breads for your family and friends. The Chive Dinner Muffins are quick and easy using a baking mix and they are really good at dinner. Personally I love rye bread so this Swedish Rye Bread is right down my alley! It is a more traditional bread recipe which used yeast and does take more time than the chive muffins. The Sweet Potato Biscuits come with their own story. I will leave it to you to decide if you believe it or not!
