SPRING / SUMMER 2012 TREND : AMERICANA

It’s been five years since Mad Men hit our screens and now the vintage 50’s trend has finally hit the runway.  Americana is one of my favourite trends from Spring/ Summer 2012, keeping the 50’s style young and fresh.

From full skirts to cat eye sunglasses, it’s super-easy to incorporate the look into your wardrobe.  Pastel colours and cheeky prints (such as the Cadillacs above) can be worn on dresses or as separates on pencil or A line skirts and blouses.

SPRING / SUMMER 2012 TREND : PEPLUMS

The new silhouette for Spring/ Summer 2012 is, allegedly, the peplum.  Jason Wu was flying the flag for peplums at his S/S 12 show with the shape being featured on tops, skirts and dresses.  I’ve personally never been a fan of adding extra volume to my waist and hips but the theory is that peplums create or enhance an hourglass shape.

High street shops have already started stocking a range of separates and dresses featuring the peplum which means experimenting with this shape won’t break the bank.
