New trends are always happening each year and we now it’s almost nothing new when you see a style from another period coming back. I was browsing through Style.com and found an article about new spring 2012 trends from the runway. Here’s what I think about the trends! Enjoy 🙂
First one is Ab Fab as pictured below. I’m not a huge fan of showing my belly so this will probably not be my top choice of trends to add-on to my wardrobe but I know that it can be very flattering on other people as long as it’s paired with the correct bottom!
Next is the Cristobal Method which is a 50s inspired look! Pictured below are two looks from Balenciaga and Dries Van Noten. I’m not a big fan of the Balenciaga but it does match the Cristobal theme. The Dries Van Noten really puts a spin on a maxi skirt that looks like a trumpet style. The biker jacket also gives an edge to the look that can be perfect for many different events.
Echo Dechoes is a Great Gatsby inspired trend that includes flowy and sleek dresses. This has got to be my favorite look from Dior and it is absolutely gorgeous! I know what you’re thinking, it’s see through but everything is just perfect about it! The color, the belt, the detail around the abdomen is just amazing! I also really like the lip color and hair style they paired with the dress.
This next trend is inspired by water and it’s called Ocean’s ’12. The best part about this trend is all the amazing detail and texture that resembles the beautiful aspects of water. Using glitter, pearls and many other embellishments have been in style for a bit but this form is extremely intricate and it looks stunning. Pictured below is an Alexander McQueen masterpiece. The colors and detail of this dress are insane! The headpiece is not my favorite but it wouldn’t be McQueen without an elaborate presentation.
Lastly is Pale Fire where pale colors are all the rage! Now color blocking is a big trend right now so it only makes sense that pale colors become the color that get a lot of color blocking love in the spring. It makes sense though because there are so many beautiful colors that accentuate each other! Below is a 3.1 Phillip Lim look that puts together three amazing colors!
What do you all think of these styles? Are any of them your favorites?
