Staying in style is almost a priority for all our lovely fashionistas who just can’t get enough of the ramp avatars and the latest designer picks.
With the mellowing of the chill and the spring summer 2012, peaking at us with all its glory, it’s time for all those gorgeous legs to be swayed in the style. Want to look your glamorous best; here is what New York Fashion predicts for this year’s styles that will take the streets by storm.
Colour Me Bright
The fastest picking up colour blocking trend will set new vibrant waves in 2012, with all designers making it big with a melange of bold and beautiful colours. Cash in on this look by wearing more than 3 loud colours at a time, and add some funky accessories like coloured beads or scarves for style.
Bask in the sea of zillions of printed patterns from animal prints to paisley motifs, digital prints, geometrical designs and even ethnic prints from the rustic Indian culture, name it and you will see them all making rounds on the fashion circuit.
Use pastel shades for day wear and make it enchanting by selecting sensual, bolder prints on dark shades such as black, wine, olive and brown.
Fluid fabrics that add elegance to your look will be a major fad this season. From flowing skirts from the Victorian age to the soft and silky pyjamas worn with feminine blouses or graceful silk robes, the streets will witness them all. Add some lace to it and you’d be the epitomising sensuality at its best.
Gone are the days when leather would only be used to heat up the chill, this year will see the who’s who gearing up their frilly dresses with leather jackets in tan and black or even teaming up leather pants with a casual shirt or tunic.
Accessorize a casual outfit with bold and big leather belts for leather is the hottest material this season.
Return to the 70’s and make it big with the oomph exuding stripes in varied colours.
Get those bohemian pants on and team them with flowing tops, single shouldered blouses with detailed buttons and embroidery.
Bring in a punk look with hand painted tees and team these with baggy denims or boyfriend denims for the perfect retro look that will be a trend to look forward to this year.
