Spring – Summer 2012: THE TRENDS 2

The first part was yesterday, here are the following trends for today.

NEON

Nanette Lepore * Christian Siriano * Rag&Bone * Sass&Bide

Really popular trend for this Summer, I have to say I like it a lot, but it depends how to wear it.

HOW TO WEAR NEON: Like Nanette Lepore and Christian Siriano, the best (at least to my eyes) is to pair it with pastels, and beige must be the best tone. I really like that combination, the color pops even more.

You can also wear it with other bright colors/neon colors, but don’t mix too many of them.

PLEATED SKIRT

Christian Siriano * Haider Ackermann * Prada * Sonia Rykiel * Lanvin

The pleated skirts were already really present last summer, but we love them too much to let them go, right?

Well last year it was black and long pleated skirts, this season they are colorfull and they can also be shorter.

HOW TO WEAR PLEATED SKIRT: For the pleated skirts you can really let you imagination go wild, or at least go any directions. I really like to combine it with a simple t shirt, just like Christian Siriano did. I would also wear it with a tank top, or a silk shirt.

Try to wear it not too low, like Prada or Christian Siriano.

(the “trend” is pleated skirt, but it can be a dress as well of course)

BERMUDA SHORTS

Acne * Nicole Farhi * Dries Van Noten * DVF * Sportmax

I LOOOVE bermuda shorts. I few years back (like five or six) it was very fashionable as well, and even at the time I use to love the trend, and wear bermuda shorts all the time. When I couldn’t find the bermuda shorts I wanted in the store, I use to cut trough my pants haha

HOW TO WEAR BERMUDA SHORTS: The best way to me is like DVF of Sportmax. Make it look chic, but you can still look confortable (Sportmax or Nicole Farhi). I would definitly recommend to wear heels because the lengt of the short shortened the legs.

I love the bright color of DVF’s bermuda shorts, it hads a fun touch to a pretty classic piece.

Best way to wear it (to me): Bermuda shorts – don’t be afraid to choose a very colorfull bermuda OR printed one (even better!) + a shirt (it can be printed as well), maybe pijama like? go for a silky shirt/blouse + heels + blazer or fun jacket (don’t pick a short one, the lengt of DVF is perfect)

Color: LIME GREEN

Oscar de la Renta * Just Cavalli * Jean Paul Gaultier * Nanette Lepore

We already saw that neon is a big trend this summer, but the lime green neon color is a must. I chose just a few of the lime green looks that were on the catwalks. I have to say I love it, but have to admit, it’s not an easy color to wear.

HOW TO WEAR LIME GREEN: Most of the time, wear the Lime Green color as an entire look. It can be any style, as you can see. You can even choose different tones of lime green for the look.

You can also wear it by little touch, a skirt or a shirt, just like Christian Siriano did (check the pleated skirt trend).

Do you have any new favorite trend? Is there any of these that you have already tried?

Let me know! And see you tomorrow for the third and final part of the Trends of this Spring/Summer
