Top new season dresses
When a new fashion season arrives, it can be tricky to figure out which styles to take over to the next few months and which to leave behind. This week we’re talking dresses and what’s hot for the new Spring Summer season 2012, so we've collated our top picks below to help you incorporate the different dress shapes and styles into your wardrobe with stylish ease. If embracing new season trends isn’t really your thing, don’t panic; Spring / Summer 2012 sees many a wearable dress style which won’t involve short lived fad features that will date easily. Opt for chic and timeless styles which will take you through this season and right into the next; look out for simplistic midi shapes with a ladylike edge. If you feel ready to tackle some of Spring / Summer 2012’s hottest dress trends head on but don’t want to go all out, consider experimenting at first with shape. The 1920’s are a really big theme this season so think about trying a dropped waist line and pleats. You could also consider some sporty style shapes too keeping things simple with clean lines and block colour. If you’re ready to dive into the new season trends head first, go all out on print and colour. This season’s dress trends take print to new level with bolder than bold colour and vivid tropical designs and kaleidoscope imagery. Also consider embracing neon shades for a real wow effect.
