Whilst last year is said to have been a year when garish and bold designs were the name of the fashion game, 2012 is set to be far more subtle according to the experts. For women who want to look ultra stylish the word on the fashion grapevine is to go for sweet and elegant styles, fresh and inspired prints, and pastels.
The coming summer season is expected to be filled with prints inspired by the sea, floral prints, elegant designs and sorbet pastels for that really fresh, summery look. For those who want to look really cool, sorbet colours coupled with metallic accessories are being touted as the perfect combination for a frosted look for those hot summer days.
Versatility will also be a fashion must this year and ladies will be able to mix and match their pastels and prints for a fresh new look without worrying about clashing colours and designs. Whilst the designs and prints may not be daring and bold, those wearing them can be simply by getting creative and mixing and matching their outfits for a new and exciting look.
Whilst floral prints have been around for a while, this year is set to see them get bigger and better, with indications that we could be looking at big designs including tropical floral designs and sunflower prints. Catwalks have also been seeing a 3D effect with floral outfits, which have been embellished with some great detail, which adds depth and texture to the outfit for an ever more fabulous yet elegant finish.
Mermaid inspired metallic colours are also set to make a splash on the fashion scene, giving the fashion conscious the chance to sparkle and dazzle whilst still enjoying a firm place at the forefront of fashion.
