Things to Come–Spring Trends of 2012

Spring is soon upon us, and so are the new trends.  This upcoming season, think flowers, pastels, bold patterns, and even foil.  Yes, foil as in tin foil.   Not only will you see some really beautiful, feminine hues, you will see metal colored washes as well as bright bold prints.  This Spring is all about being bold.  But don’t think all will necessarily be about skinny jeans.  You’ll also be seeing a lot of trouser wideleg cuts.  Have fun with your denim this Spring!

 

Pastel/Neon colors:  The colored denim trend really exploded last year, and it doesn’t look like it’s going away anytime soon.  This season, you will see a lot of pastel colors: soft pink, blue, yellow, peach, lavender, and any other hue under the sun.  In addition, you’ll be seeing a lot of pastel neon colors as well.  With the color denim trend having already had a big jump start, it won’t be difficult to get accustomed to these new bright neon hues.  Check out some by Rag & Bone/JEAN and AG Adriano Goldschmied.

Florals:  When I think of Spring, I think of flowers blossoming, which makes this trend appropriate for this season.  You’ll be seeing a lot of floral patterns this Spring.  Try some styles by Citizens of Humanity.

Patterned:  What I love about denim is the versatility and endless possibilities.  This season, denim will deviate from the obvious and move towards patterns such as plaids and stripes.  We recently did a review on Current/Elliott Plaid Stilletto Jeans and J Brand Milla Jeans.  Get ready to see many charming prints this season.

Foil:  When I think of foil, I often think of the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz.  The image seems awkward.  However, a pair of skinnies in this foil pattern will leave you looking anything but awkward.    Try some styles by Sinclair Denim.

Wax coated/Leather:  This trend started this past fall and winter and is continuing to move forward this Spring.  We’ve done a couple of reviews in some wax coated denim, such as Siwy Hannah Coated Denim and J Brand 901 Coated Leggings.  Try out some other leather leggings by Current/Elliott and J Brand.

Trouser:   It doesn’t look like skinny jeans are taking a back seat just yet.  But as an alternative, try out some denim trousers.  On the scene will be quite a bit of wideleg trouser jeans this Spring.  We recently did a review on Joe’s Jeans Trousers.  Check out some other styles by MOTHER and Paige.
