This morning stylist Sandra Antoun from Kitsch Trading Co, takes a look at the trends you’re bound to see everywhere this spring. So take note and decide whether you’d like to join in or go your own way.
Spring runways were extremely colorful this year. Bold, solid-colored pieces—such as a cardi/skirt combo, a wrap dress, or a demure one-piece suit—make simple apparel look feminine and glamorous. Style tip: Stick to three colors maximum, to avoid that “girly, Rainbow Brite-esque” appearance.
Super Bold Prints
Vibrant, swirling patterns sashayed down the spring 2012 runways. And there was plenty to choose from. Large print florals, mirror-like geometric shapes, and even parrot prints are my first picks.
Oranges and Tangerines
My number one pick for the sunny orange trend is Tangerine Tango, which was ubiquitous in the fashion scene this year. And if tangerine doesn’t flow with your vibe, there are plenty of other similar hues to choose from. The simplicity behind wearing a color as vibrant as this foreshadows a chic and glamorous inclination for 2012. Try pairing some bright orange pumps (or sandals) with a basic white pant/short and blue T. That way, if going for an overly bold ensemble isn’t your cup of tea, you can still incorporate current fashion trends into your own personal wardrobe.
For those of us with more subtle tendencies color-wise, pastels are in our favor this season. These shades and hues give off a low-key, lady-like ambiance and, in my opinion, have remained extremely sexy (and timeless) when it comes to budgeting and choosing this season’s wardrobe.
So there you have it, folks. Check out Sandra’s work and if you live in the Austin area, have her come over and find the secret gems that have been hiding in your wardrobe!
