Bright and Shiny

The time has come to say goodbye to your winter wardrobe and hello to the hottest trends of 2012. This season metallic apparel and statement prints enter the style stakes, perfect for making your look day to night chic. Fashion writer LAURA CRICHTON tells us how to de-drab our
wardrobes for Spring.

For the ultimate casual and cool feminine edge, floral print dresses are a must-have. Teamed with a ‘90s style coat you’ll be set for an evening sipping cocktails as the night draws in.

The metallic trend shone on catwalks for Autumn/Winter 2011, and has transcended into Spring/Summer 2012. Stella McCartney tailored sporty pieces with a sophisticated edge while Dolce and Gabanna went all out glitz and glam. Turn heads by combining a metallic skirt and oversized knitted jumper with heels. You’ll be hot to trot and ready to shine.

The warmer seasons are always accompanied by an array of colours. From blue skies to blossoming flowers it’s impossible to ignore the beauty that relishes the sun. Let your style do the talking in earthy tones. A simple top teamed with a cardigan in a natural colour will add that effortless effect. You’ll look completely at home taking lazy strolls through the park on sunny afternoons.

With the days lasting longer and the inclement weather a thing of the past, summer is a season to make the most of. Men can celebrate in style in a modernised tux. The chequered look is a quirky interpretation that reinvents this timeless ensemble. Or go with the traditional suit outfit and make a statement with a bold shirt. A tux is a staple for any man’s wardrobe. Even though it can’t be brought out all the time, make sure you’ve got the wow factor when it comes to wearing it.

Spring/Summer 2012 is set to rework trends into the high street that we know and love. Innovative details added to modern classics are perfect for experimenting with and enjoying the warmer days in.
