Spring 2012 trend report

With fashion weeks for fall/winter 2012 going on right now, we thought it would be useful to summarize all new trends for the upcoming season. Just because Spring is not even over yet.

 Main colours for this season are pastels (light pink, light blue and beige) and neons (orange, red, green and bright pink). Try wearing these trends sometimes, but stay true to the colours that match your skin tone (click here to find out). 

Add these items to your wardrobe to create a fashionable, trendy look. 
The wedged sneaker (Ash via Asos) is definitely worth its high price, more comfortable than real heels but they give you the same extra centimeters.
As for bag trends, invest this Spring in a small satchel (River Island). This item has been around for quite a while now, but this time in a smaller version.
Spring means heels and the trend is the surfer platform (Zara). Careful when strolling over cobbles.
My favourite is this white leather jacket (Topshop). It goes with almost any outfit and perfect when it's still chilly outside.
For bottoms choose for a pastel coloured skinny jeans (Vivienne Westwood for Lee via Asos). Always go for the right fit, get yourself measured!
Accessories make or break an outfit. Statement earrings (Asos), whatever kind you like, are best this season.

Last season braids were all over the place. This season we opt for an urban wave, simple and classy. Bye bye braids and welcome the twist, easier and evenly beautiful.

You can adjust most trends to your own style. 
For this all white look you can use items from last year and the year before, just go for white!
Another hot trend this Spring is the mix and match style. Or actually the mix and mismatch, because you create this trend by combining different textures, prints, colours and accessories. 

Most women don't pay attention to beauty trends, but it's always fun to try something new or unusual. The nude trend continues in 2012. Luminous skin, clean eyebrows, natural skin, as if you're not wearing any make-up. But if you do like to accentuate your beauty, choose bright lips, matching nails and defined lashed. Fake or real, turn heads with them!

Last but not least our nails. An outfit is not finished without a decent manicure. Trends this season are quite hard to handle, but worth giving a try. Two-tone mani is hot and you can diversify as many times as you like. Look for a tutorial online (we did it here) and go for it! Matching with your natural skin is the nude nail, fits with almost anything and easy to do yourself. Last trend is the reversed french manicure, colour at the top, clear at the cuticle.
