Spring 2012 Trends


Here are some spring trends that have popped up on my radar – so far!

Printed pants

(or, as I like to call them, Party Pants), like these denim pants from Citizens Of Humanity, at Nordstrom:

The vintage floral patterns keeps them from looking too cartoonish.  Here is another pair, from Erdem and available at Neiman Marcus.

It’s the conservative, cigarette-style silhouette that give these a classic look rather than a grandmother’s-couch look, but pants like these are only for the brave.

Pleated skirts:

Knife pleats are so fun and pretty -very Marilyn Monroe over the subway grate – but I would always stress out about how to clean it.  I don’t iron.


NO!  Even if you try to “mask” it by wearing it in a conservative silhouette, like a suit.

How could anyone take you seriously in this color?  I hated it in the 80s and I hate it now. Just say no to Day-Glo.


Thank goodness lady like dresses and accessories are still trending for spring.
