As always...Black and white fashions defy time, and keep their well earned place as big colors for spring and summer of 2012. Black and white fashions were big on the runways this season, most fashion designers showed black and white in some fashion or another .

Fashions that will offer wonderful vivid prints, stripes, and geometric prints - not to mention some great new takes on animal prints... The main theme this spring is somewhat tailored, and classic, but with a touch of bold, and edgy.

Another color trend being you will see this spring, especially in handbags and shoes is neon's. Such as bright blues, yellows, greens, oranges, and hot pinks. Do you Crochet? Well it's back... Crochet vests are big this spring, maybe you can look to the back of your closet . maybe you might have a bit of a crochet number lurking. The color that jumps out at the head of the line for this spring when it comes to neon shades, is orange! Less face it there is no other color that can make a loud fashion statement as bright orange. So need a new handbag or a great pair of shoes? Make it orange. Belt bags are one of the great big trends... However, I am not talking "fanny packs'...Stick to the new small square flat belt bags - so cute, and less weight to carry on that shoulder. Feet need a rest This spring kitten heels are big... The kitten heel is a good choice this spring. They are feminine, and classic, as well as comfortable. Creamy neutrals, all done up to give you a very feminine look. Flowing pajama - styles, tunics. All meant to be classical, and again comfortable. Think whimsical pattrens. From bird prints to deers, fruit, feathers, you name it, tops with whimsical prints are big.

You can't go wrong wearing stripes, from head to toe... High-Waisted flare pants are so big this spring... The pant that Katharine Hepburn made so popular, is back... I suggest you pair this style of pants with a great heel, just to give the old look a bit of flare. The new flare pant as a rule have loops for a skinny belt, so you can flash up the look with a flashy thin belt.
