#1. Color Blocking
Expect to see plenty of colorblocking this Spring.
What is colorblocking?
Designers create this unique look by using contrasting, yet complimentary, colors.
The look is bold and unexpected.
#2. And the Winner Is.....
Tangerine Tango....sounds like a drink and a dance. Fabulous!
This has to be one of my favorite fashion colors for several reasons.
The cheery color compliments every skin tone, it makes a statement and it looks fabulous with turquoise!

# 4 Peplum Accents
What the heck are peplum accents, you ask?
The runway looks are always a bit over the top. Personally I thought many of the peplum accents were had a bit like a lunatic housewife look. I like this peplum jacket jacket above. It's a toned-down version of the runway look. (source- Stylebust.com)
#5 Tribal Prints
(L.A.M.B. Spring 2012)
The tribal inspired look is one of my favorite trends mostly because we can expect the same look for the home.

#6 Polka Dots
(Lela Rose, Luca Luca, and Suno)
Polka dots are typically a preppy or even juvenile look but clearly these designers pulled off the pattern with chic sophistication.
