While colors make the base of fashion, prints play an essential role in making these colors quickly change their nature and get a more complicated and interesting look. Hardly any season would go without some gorgeous prints, and the upcoming spring/summer 2012 season as well brings some fascinating options with it. Flowers, stripes, animal prints, dots, geometric prints and much more await us ahead. So let’s take a sneak peek at the trendy prints for spring/summer 2012 and furnish our wardrobes with the most alluring options in advance.
Floral Prints: This beautiful obsession started a couple of seasons ago yet, and it has charmed the designers so deeply that they really don’t want to kiss goodbye to it. During spring/summer 2012 these dainty prints were super-hot: nearly every designer pictured floral prints in his collections. For the upcoming warm season, floral prints continue to be in vogue. Some designers really exaggerated this trend (Blumarine), while others used smaller portions of floral prints in their collections. Floral prints also come in combination with other patterns, thus creating a beautiful contrast that attracts attention at once.
Nature Prints: Although it sounds a little strange, nature prints make a firm step into fashion this year. Prints of trees, flowers, leaves, sun, sea and other images will hardly leave you indifferent. So be sure to add a nature accent into your styling this spring.
Animal Prints: Next to the nature prints, animal prints will be again trendy this year, perhaps trendier than ever. Moreover, this season expect not only leopard, snakeskin and zebra prints, but also full images of tigers, birds, cats, lizards and sea creatures.
Wild & Ethnic Prints: Another great trend for spring/summer 2012 make wild & ethnic prints, which certainly look interesting and unique. No doubt, you’ll stand out wearing clothes with such prints.
Kaleidoscopic prints: These prints are new for us, and they are going to become a great addiction for bold fashionistas. Go for one separate item with these prints or sport it from head to toe to increase the daring effect of your look.
Stripes: Like floral prints, stripes are also our ultimate obsession. They are elegant and chic, and look especially nice for office-wear garments. For spring/summer 2012, designers bring lots of trendy casual clothing pieces in stripes. Horizontal, vertical or diagonal, stripes can always make you look super-trendy.
Geometrical Prints: Next to stripes, geometrical prints also look hot this upcoming warm season. They are undoubtedly unique and refined, and can make your look stand out instantly. The new season also brings a few polka dots, zigzags, triangles, checks and other variations of this trend.
Combined Prints: Last but not least, combined prints will also be trendy this season. You can try various creative options, like flowers combined with checks, leopard prints with geometrical ones, kaleidoscopic prints with hearts, etc. Just experiment a little, and find your perfect matches among so many gorgeous options available.
