WHAT’S IN THIS SPRING?!
Although we’ve been having some pretty nice Spring weather, unfortunately its still Winter…..BUT Spring is right around the corner! We’re getting a couple more minutes of daylight each day, the weather has been fabulous (considering I live in the midwest and its February!), AND new Spring clothes are beginning to come out in the stores!! I haven’t started my Summer/Spring shopping yet but I will soon.
While reading magazines, seeing advertisements, looking at fashion shows and walking through the mall, I’ve noticed some new trends for the new season.
I know it may seem as though its too early to be talking about shopping for spring/summer clothes BUT in the “Fashion World” everything is in production no less that 6 months to a year before consumers see it. *confused face?* Meaning: The new clothes that you’ll buy for this summer were thought of, designed, and put into production a year ago; the clothes you’ll buy for Fall/Winter 2012 are already (more than likely) in production, and the designs for Spring/ Summer 2013 are probably being finalized right now (well not right now, right now but you know what I mean)! Anyway not that you cared to know any of that, I just though I’d let you in on a little “Fashion Fun Fact.”
So, here are some trendy styles, silhouettes and colors that many designers used for this Spring and they’ll probably find their way into your closets!
*Color Block and Stripes (clothes, shoes and accessories)
*Neon Colors, Yellow, Oranges and Tangerines
*Peplum shirts, skirts and dresses
*Floral print…even on footwear (of course, its the springy thing to wear)
*Midriffs (so get that tummy tight!!)
*Sequin bottoms (tops, shorts, skirts, pants, AND footwear)
*Retro styles (60s & 70s)
*Nautical/ Sailor look
There are more fashion trends for Spring/Summer 2012, but these are just the ones that many designers and some companies have been focusing on.
“Consumers look to spring for renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®
Hope you all enjoyed…..now get to shopping!!!
