Style: Spring Fashion Flings

I love winter and almost everything about it. What I dislike most about winter is the long nights void of sun. February, is a lovely month because it is still very much winter. You can ski, you can bundle up, and you can begin to become excited about garden parties and fresh wardrobs. The Spring collections for 2012, are very much in line with falls biggest trends.  Loud, and vibrant prints are back in bloom for, as is the court of the animal kingdom. New to spring fashion, is color, lots of soft pastel color and romantic Gatsby era frocks. Spring 2012 is a wonderlust of prints, colors, patterns, textures, and shapes.  

The trend is bolder, and much more colorful this spring. The flowers are more birds of paradise, and less carnations. 

(Alexander Wang,  Thakoon, Altuzarra)


The animals in court are more flamingos and electric cobras than elephants and garter snakes.The look  is pattern and texture driven. With Bold accents.  

(Commuun, Giles, L.A.M.B)

Sports Wear: 
The Sportswear fetish has been revamped and understated with sorbet colors, color blocking, and fitted silhouettes.

(Bill Blass, Rag & Bone, Vera Wang)

Gatsby (1920's) elegance.

In a whimsical and princess fariy tale fashion the fringe and pillowy designs inspried by the 1920's will have you time traveling and relishing in joy as you dress up for an evening alone or out on the town. 

( Lam, The Row, Oscar De La Renta)

Color Blocking:

The colors this spring are more coral, and tangorine. The Shape is less rigid and more flexible allowing the trend to transpire into more sportswear, and era driven looks.

 (Ohne Titel, Victoria Beckham, J. Mendel)

Easter egg colors, are huge, and everywhere. Mint nails, lavender hair, robins egg blue clutches. The colors are soft, and complementary to the other spring trends. Especially with the 1920's era- elegance.

 (Marc Jacobs, Phillip Lim, Wes Gordon)

Spring 2012, in Short is a cauldron of textures. Infused with in willowy florals, safari animals, sporty men's  wear, colors, and eras. I personally am loving the no fear fashions!
