Here are the 2012 spring/summer trends we love!

1) Floral prints

We like feminine and we like pretty, so the floral print trend in fashion is right up our alley! Whether you pick your flowers bold or dainty,  make sure you have at least one pretty floral dress this year!

2) Bright Colors

What a welcome change from the gray & black we wear so much (too much!) in the Midwestern winter! Think neon in shades of pink or turquoise or add a splash of tangerine to your wardrobe.

3) Animal prints

This trend keeps hanging around and we like the possibilities of adapting it to spring! Add a leopard belt to any dress and bam…instant chic! I bought a pair of leopard print wedges (Payless $19.99 no kidding) that I love wearing with bright red and orange this season.

4) Black & white

Not just for race parties this season! We like it for looking crisp and sporty, and partnered with red lips…HOT!

5) Lace overlay

We like this trend for it’s throwback vintage feel and refined prettiness. We carry lace overlay dresses in both our new and vintage selections.

6) Bold prints

This season’s bold print trend feels modern, yet like all fashion, ties us back to fashion past.

You can’t talk about spring 2012 without mentioning peplum skirts and dresses, so there…we talked about it! Polka dots are also in right now. White dresses are a season must. Finally, a developing trend we think will carry into fall/winter is dropping waist lines on dresses. Think 1920’s Great Gatsby.
