Spring into Fashion with the Top 5 Trends

February 28, 2012 in Fashion

It’s time to shed the parkas, boots and toques, Canada! Spring is coming (or so we hope) and it has hit the runway with a bang!  If you’re anything like me, you and live for fashion, but not everything you see on the runway will compliment your taste, look or budget. Luckily, this Spring, the runway was good to the average, fabulous girl by giving us some trends that we can love and embrace.

1. Fabulous Florals

Nothing says Spring like florals! Peter Som exploded onto the runway with this blue floral chiffon. It was a welcome update to evening wear.

2. Sporty Chic

Who says that fashion isn’t comfortable? For those on a tight budget, this ensemble is from Marc Jacob’s more affordable ready-to-wear collection. Don’t forget to polish off this outfit with some cool color-blocked kicks.

3. Tangerine Tango

Pantone guessed it right! Tangerine Tango is the “it” colour this Spring. Tangerine or any orange citrus colour brightened up the runway in New York, and you will definitely see it on the streets once the snow melts. Here, Charlotte Ronson showed a flowing, pretty piece in the sunny shade.

4. Neons

Similar to our amazing KITCHEN by Upper Canada Soap collection, the Spring fashion trends are embracing NEON! What could be a happier shade to kick off a wonderful season? Nanette Lepore’s collection does this family of colours justice this Spring.

5. Polka Dots

Everyone is gaga over polka dots this season! This is Tory Burch’s three-dimensional take on spotted prints at her first runway show after a decade hiatus. We think that this is the ultimate day time outfit.
