"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." - Coco Chanel

What I'll be wearing next Spring - S/S12 trends

My pick of next season's trends:


In every material (though think plastics especially) and on everything:

Peter Som

Peter Som

No, not the navy, but sea-life! This theme turned up in several collections, but my favourite was Versace's polished-girl version (see http://turquoise-pink.blogspot.com/2011/09/milan-fashion-week-super-shows.html):



Following on from the aquarium, blue will be the colour to be seen in. Turquoise was the (and my!) favourite hue on the catwalk, but wear several shades together and you'll be waves ahead of everyone else:

Tropical Colours

Okay, so if you don't wear blue, wear every other bright colour under the sun!

Roberto Cavalli

Add the Midas touch to your outfit a la Alexander McQueen:

Alexander McQueen

High-Cut Shorts

Practically underwear, but I'm sure everyone will get over that pretty quickly come May:



...and beads, and sequins:


Pale Embellished Jeans

Humble denimn, but the beautiful kind:

Christopher Kane

Crop Tops

Hello 90s!


Vegetable Patch

Have fun with fruit and vegetables next Spring:

Moschino Chip & Chic

Rafia mini-trend:

Moschino Chip & Chic

Broderie Anglaise

Giant, that is:

Louis Vuitton

White Cotton

Sometimes the simplest things are the prettiest:

Nina Ricci

Sporty Mesh

The new chic:

Stella McCartney

Sports Luxe

Rag & Bone

Split Skirts

These are going to be so great and easy to wear:

Well, I could say the same about these...I wonder if they'll be accepted as street wear? Worth a shot...

On my to-buy list:


Iridescent Shine


For now though, bring the colder temperatures!
