2012 Spring Trend – Color Blast

With only 2 days left, until Mercedes Benz Fashion Week finally kicks off in New York City, showcasing the Fall 2012 collections, I just realized I haven’t got much time to cover the 2012 Spring/Summer trends yet. Well, except for the little red dress, pastels and lace … Too little, too late now ? Not if I hurry , and catch the last few chances I got to mention them, before getting overly excited about what’s going to be hot during fall and winter. Thank God, I was born a girl.

With that in mind, I just had to put a spin on what mus be my favorite spring/summer 2012 trend, because honestly, who doesn’t love some color during the perfect sunny days ?

This summer, is going to be a blast, with electric blues, hot fuchsias, sunflower yellows and bold oranges, popping up everywhere on the streets and in stores. We are going full on color !

The great thing is, you can follow the trend by wearing the same color head to toe, by mixing pops of color with neutral hues, or by really having fun and putting together outfits teaming more than one bold color, think color-block, think yellow and electric blue, think pink and red, and wear whatever speaks to you.

Electric-Blue

Fuchsia-Fix

Orange-Blast

Yellow-Sunshine

If you’re more like me and your wardrobe doesn’t scream color, remember that you can always add key pieces that will definitely brighten things up in your closet. I’m excited to be doing just that, and here’s what I have in mind :

Fashion Crush – Embrace Your Animal Instinct

Embrace Your Animal Instinct” – that was the title of a column I read somewhere in a magazine, back in 2011. And trying to think about animals and instincts, my head was instantly filled with the image of a cute little cat, that’s the best I can do, because, yes, I am a HUGE Cat Lover. For me, they are the best thing ever, but don’t get me wrong, I love dogs almost the same, I love animals in general, with a few known exceptions, but if the “old lady with the 12 cats” story would not have ruined it by now, I would have loved to own maybe just two cats and a dog, and a house big enough not to feel crowded. But that’s a different chapter.

Back to fashion and animal instincts, this year, I have found myself suddenly liking a couple of things, that later became a few things, with cats all over them. So, I guess, now it would be the time to embrace this animal instinct I’ve read about, and even introduce it into my wardrobe. The fun part of all this, is that fashion is showing its affinity for animals of all kinds, making it easier for you to find your animal instinct too, that’s if you haven’ already, as I am a little bit late on this trend. From sharks, cows, dogs, zebras and elephants, you can find almost everything printed on skirts, shirts, shoes, sweaters or dresses.

Let me show you what I’m talking about, because one of these days… I’ll own something “CAT-ified” :

How adorable is this cat motif t-shirt ?

For me, it’s all about cats, but what would you wear on your T-shirt ?
