Flower Power – Spring Fashion 2012



It’s finally happened! I didn’t think it would…but Spring 2012 has finally arrived!

At last I can start thinking about Spring Fashion 2012. And right now what that means to me is all things FLORAL! I love flower power this Spring.

You already know I couldn’t resist buying a pair of floral Jeffery Campbell platforms and I am afraid there is likely to be more floral showing up in my wardrobe thanks to all this Spring inspiration.

Floral Flare: These beautiful pants get me on so many levels…the flowing fabric, the beautiful print and the wide leg. All things I love and if I can find a similar pair this season, they will be making their new home in my wardrobe! Especially love that this look is all about the pants thanks to being paired with a white shirt and neutral accessories.

Floral Pants: Another pair of floral pants, these would work as well in Spring as in Autumn thanks to the dark background. However, I love them paired with this pretty pastel blue button-down shirt. A nice simple, classic and relaxed look. Again the pants are the star with everything else kept simple and neutral.

Flowers on Top: This look is the exact opposite in that the floral is on top but the concept is the same in pairing floral with neutrals. The white skirt and handbag keep all the attention on the top half.

Floral Fusion: Just in case you can’t decide which floral you like best or if you should wear it on the top or bottom, throw it all to the wind and wear clashing florals. Clashing prints have been a trend creeping in over the past season or two and floral really is just a print so why not. There really aren’t many rules to this look. In fact I think the only thing needed to pull it off is confidence!

Flower Power – the Real Deal: In Spring, I also love being able to go out to the garden and pick a bunch of flowers for inside. It seems to breathe life into the home. Plus it drives me outside to enjoy the blue skies and a bit of warmth on my shoulders as I select which blooms will be show-cased!

I am so very glad Spring is here, both for the love of all the fashion trends of Spring 2012 and especially for the love of Flower Power!

Will you be wearing floral or is it to granny for you?
