Pastels: This season, make like a kid in a gelato shop with some pretty pastel pieces-- Nothing quite says 'spring has sprung' like a fresh crop of candy-colored clothes! Infuse some sweetness into your wardrobe with airy sorbet-inspired hues: Mint greens, creamy oranges, and buttery yellows ruled the Spring 2012 runways (including Marc Jacobs, Christopher Kane, and Jill Stuart), proving that even the edgiest of fashionistas can get in on this ultra sweet trend. Try mixing and matching pastel separates for a layer cake look that's guaranteed to satisfy your sugar craving this spring.
Nautical: There's a reason why the nautical trend continues to spring up, spring after spring-- the preppy stripes and flirty silhouettes that define the look are the ultimate in classic style. Whether you're sailing the seven seas or stranded in the city this season, tap into your inner sailor girl by investing in some truly timeless nautical pieces: Bold stripy tops, woven espadrilles, and anything chambray will guaranteed become your go-to closet staples, and they'll still look fresh for years to come. Ahoy, matey!
Wedges: What would we do without the wedge? We never want to find out! When it comes to footwear, wedges truly are the best of all worlds: Leg-lengthening, comfortable, and easy to walk in. Best of all, the shoe of the season comes in an insane range of styles to compliment literally anyone's wardrobe. So whether you're going for '70s hippie chic, Roman holiday retro, or global market goddess, there's a wonderful wedge just waiting for you. Slip on your perfect pair and bring your style (and height!) to a whole new level!
Colorblock: Stow away all those dark, drab winter clothes, because this spring is all about colorblocking. The bright and bold trend has ruled the runway for several seasons now, and it's not slowing down anytime soon! There's never been a better time to get in on the action: With everyone from Tommy Hilfiger to Marni to BCBG Max Azria sending colorblocked looks down the catwalk for Spring 2012, colorblocking is hotter than ever. Pop on a '60s-esque shift dress in an unexpected colorblock for an on-trend retro look, or dip your foot into the trend (literally!) with a hot pair of colorblock heels.
White Jeans: We rely on our go-to blue jeans just as much as the next fashionable female, but there's something about spring that screams white jeans. This season, there's been a major white-out in the denim department... and we're all about it. Switch up your old, worn out blues for a fresh pair of crisp, bright whites-- think of them as the new statement neutral. Anything goes when it comes to cut, but ankle grazing skinnies and slim flared styles are at the top of our spring 2012 wish list. Best of all, white denim transforms seamlessly from day to night. Just pop on a glam top and pumps for major impact after hours-- and stear clear of that red wine!
