Trends for Spring

Hi there,
Today I was reading through some magazines and looking at the fashion trends for spring. There are some trends I like (two tone, nudes, ruffles, florals) and some that I am not so find of (prints, underwear as outerwear and utility chic)

Two Tone
I absoutley love this trend. It is so simple and sophisticated. I think anybody can pull it off and look really chic.

Asos Spotty Collar Frill Top

Karen Millen Beautiful Lace Bag
Topshop diagonal stripe dress

Pied a Terre Gormley Stud Bow Shoe
I think this look is also very sophisticated and elegant. However I am not sure that nudes really suit my colouring so I may just stick to the nude accessories.

Asos One Shoulder Chiffon Top

Reiss Picton Weave Drawstring Bag
Mango Lazos Bow Front Flat Shoe
I am loving ruffles. I think they add a little bit of fun and feminity to an outfit. However I am not mad about them if they are a bit OTT.Here are a few examples of ruffles I like:

Warehouse Ruffle Lace Cardi

Superdry Polkadot Ruffle Skirt

Asos Mesh Overlay Ruffle Corset

I was really happy when this trend came out as I have always had a bit of a soft spot for floral prints. However now that I see so many florals in all they shops they have started giving me a bit of a headache. I think I prefer the smaller more subtle floral designs such as the dress below from warehouse and the skirt from asos. However I am not keen on the floral print in the tube skirt from oasis.

Warehouse Nirvana Ditsy Dress

Asos Darling Pocket Floral Skirt

Oasis Floral Tube Skirt

I think this trend is really personal because you can either like a print or not. Personally I am not keen on the animal print top or the Vivienne Westwood bag below. However I do quite like the Orla Kiely print lap top skin.

Asos Animal Print Top

Vivienne Westwood New Harlequin Large Shoulder Bag
Orla Kiely Scribble Stem Print Lap Top Skin
Underwear as Outerwear
I think this trend can look okay but I do not think I would ever have the confidence to wear it.

Utility Chic
This is my absoulute least favourite trend. I think it is very unflattering on the majority of people and something I would never purchase.
Oasis Peg Leg Combat Trousers

Oasis Pocket Utility Jacket

Thanks for reading my blog post and I would love to hear what your favourite trends are for spring 2010.

I do like the florals, and ruffles. I was actually eyeing that dress in warehouse today, so pretty x

I'm not too keen on the utility things, they are a bit dull for S/S I think?

One other thing I'm not keen on are playsuits. I've been seeing them in the magazines lately... ( I wish I had the legs to wear one!)

I do not like playsuits either. They look fine on models but I do not think they look well on most people.
I love the warehouse dress also:-)

I adore that Vivienne Westwood Harlequin shoulder bag. I googled it & found the price & will have to wait a bit to get it!
