Spring 2012 Fashion

May 04, 2012

Pack up your dark, heavy clothes because spring has sprung and this season is all about bright colors. Designer high top sneakers, pastel colored jeans, polka dots, flouncy florals (especially with a little ruffle) all take center stage this season. Also on deck for fashion, you can find classic preppy looks with a nautical sailor flair. Always in style for spring: strappy sandals.

Stripes and flowers

Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren embody the preppy look. This spring, Tommy loves stripes and florals and isn’t afraid to mix and match as long as they’re in the same color family. When putting together a nautical look, though, don’t go overboard. Too many sailor accents and you may end up looking like you work on a ship when your goal is to look like you belong lounging on one!

Colored Jeans

Pink is the new blue when it comes to jeans this season. Express (pictured above) has a great line, but check your favorite jeans designer and see what they have in store for you. Almost every fresh designer who does jeans well has come out with fun colors for skinny jeans this spring.

High Top Sneakers

High Tops aren’t just for sporty guys and girls. Now Adidas, Yves Saint Laurent and even UGG Australia are getting in on the high top scene with high fashion high tops. Think Adidas is a sporty brand? Try playing basketball in their high-heeled high tops! Yves Saint Laurent’s fancy high tops come with a hefty price tag – around $700. UGG’s new high tops are due out mid-summer. For more accessible high school high tops, Converse All Stars are always fun, come in all the colors of the rainbow… and then some… and retail around the $35 mark.

I hang out with a bunch of different groups of people.. All of which have drama. And it is NOT fun. They all expect me to choose a side and start making me feel bad so that I would HAVE to pick them. It really doesn't make me feel so good, I don't know what to do. :/
