Between the winter and the spring 2012 fashion trends we’re seeing a lot of carrying over of the stronger designs. Similarly the accessories trends are taking inspiration for color, patterns and feel from the hottest fashion and beauty trends. Here are just some of the looks that are going to take over wardrobes all over the world this year.
Color is everywhere this year. Think of a kaleidoscope and the bright purples, yellows, greens and blues that it entails. These colors will be used as a solid or in patterns together and are sometimes toned down with white. Every shade of white is also very popular so you’ll have lots of options for your white party this summer.
Bags, shoes and oversized belts in metallic colored leather have taken over the runways. Wearing silver, gold or even a metallic red, blue or green is a great way to make your outfit more festive. Something else to keep in mind is that metallic are so popular now that you can mix and match colors. A classic example is accessorizing a black metallic dress with a silver clutch and shoes.
The Clutch Purse
Not just for date night, the clutch is back and is stronger than ever. You’re going to see smaller versions where you will only be able to fit a cell phone, credit card, keys and lipstick in so it can be used for a night out. Then there’s the larger version that can be used as an everyday bag. Make it your own by picking up a metallic clutch or a sorbet colored one.
Put a strap on your clutch and make it big enough to fit in the kitchen sink and you have an oversized purse that you can use to carry all of your everyday necessities. The difference between last year and this year is that the bags are a little les puffy and we’re seeing a lot more metallic colors.
