So it’s a new year and it's winter. You probably have spent most of the month wrapped up warm in thick coats scarves and whatever you can bear to wear under all that for the gloomy commute to work. Well, like every year, it is easy to forget that spring is just a matter of weeks away and I, for one, cannot contain my excitement with what’s in store!
This spring we are going to witness a revolution of colour and styles. Exotic prints are definitely going to be “in” this year all the way through to autumn. Elizabeth and James
certainly agree. The US brand co-designed by Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen is effortlessly stylish with beautiful contemporary prints and tailored jackets. Be sure to check out their range especially their stunning Bruce Jackets, I love the one in Ecru/Hyper Pink.
Prints depict the summer paradise with an array of tropical colours and clashing floral patterns, which is why the denim world has grabbed the floral trend with both hands! You will love the new pieces from cherry printed skinny jeans to wide leg paisley trousers, my favourite being Mandy by Citizens of Humanity
As seen on the catwalks of Dolce & Gabbana and Sportmax, prints are key to spring/ summer 2012. Work this look into your wardrobe with printed tops, or for the daring, coolest fashionistas will be wearing tropical print jeans.
You should also expect to see the reintroduction of Tie Dyes, perfect for the warmer weather as it combines a relaxed hippy vibe with feminine shapes. Whilst being vibrant, the colour palette is at a level of softness and sophistication, a perfect accompaniment for those floral patterns. Consider the Current/Elliot
Skinny Boy Jeans in a Mississippi shade. With a vibrant top, you will look good, feel good and surely make the most of the seasons!
