Spring – Summer 2012: THE TRENDS 3

Here is the final part of the Trends we will see coming for this Summer.

I thought it was a great way to give you advice on what to wear/buy in the following months. Is there a trend you liked a lot?

By the way, you don’t always need to buy new stuff, the trends are easily adaptable with our closet (we all have Pastels, White, bright/neon colors from last year and the colorblocking,…) You just needed the inspiration right? HERE WE GO:

Color: ALL WHITE

Aquascutum * Lanvin * Chloé * T by Alexander Wang * Chanel * Sportmax

It must be one of the easiest (and cheapest) trend to wear. We all have white in our closet don’t we? I know it’s not easy to wear (and don’t eat bolognese!), but isn’t it SO lovely?

We might have to wait a little more, just to get a little tan…

HOW TO WEAR ALL WHITE: Well, it’s not very tricky, the goal of this trend is to wear a COMPLETELY white outfit. White shoes is the perfect touch, but you can also go for brown/camel shoes, or even black ones.

As you can see, it’s a trend for any style so, go for it!

WHITE SHIRTS

Louis Vuitton * Carven * Paul&Joe * Rachel Zoe * Veronique Leroy

After the complete white outfit, the white shirt is a must. I guess buying a white shirt for this summer is a good investement, right?

HOW TO WEAR WHITE SHIRTS: Besides the fact that you “have” to buttoned it all the way up, the are no rules… With panties (!?) like Louis Vuitton, cool and silky like Paul&Joe or even a bit oversized and the sleeves rolled up at Veronique Leroy.

It’s a very easy piece to wear because you can add it to any outfit, and it always brings a pop of light to it (like Carven). Don’t hesitate to wear statement necklaces over it!

PRINTS

Dolce&Gabbana * Sportmax * Paul&Joe * Stella Mc Cartney * D&G

This must be one of the trend we’ve talked the most about, and for right reasons. PRINTS ARE EVERYWHERE! And any kind of prints.

I love the fact that it adds so much colors to our outfits. My personnal favorite is Sportmax.

The good thing is that prints are still very IN for next winter.

HOW TO WEAR PRINTS: You can wear it as a total look, either witht the same print of with different prints. When you wear different prints together, try to have a common factor in the different prints, a color or a theme (flowers, fruits,…)

PIJAMA

Fendi * Stella Mc Cartney

I didn’t see much inspiration on the catwalks but it is anyway really present in the streets!

HOW TO WEAR THE PIJAMA STYLE: You can either wear it as a total look (Stella Mc Cartney) a pijama pants and a pijama blouse for example, or wear it with something else.

For example, a pijama blouse with a jeans, or a pijama pants with a nice jumper, just like Fendi.

I find it better looking as a total look, but it’s definitly harder to wear.
