its never too early to start thinking of what your spring closet will look like, especially when its cold and dreary out. dolce and gabbana's spring 2012 collection would brighten anyones day with their use of color, texture and silhouette. of course, who can afford any of these frocks strutting down the runway? the least that can be done is take inspiration from this collection.
bright bold colors such as this tangerine (number one pantone color of 2012- tangerine mango) will be seen all over stores come spring. happy florals and prints can be mixed and matched with solids or other prints, this can make a vibrant statement. textures such as the floral dress above, gives added depth to any ordinary outfit. sheer tops and dresses are staying in trend this spring. pair a sheer top with a sheer tank to add a perfect cover up underneath. how can we forget about jewels, sequins and sparkle? sequin and jeweled accents go a long way, replacing the disco ball dress worn on new years eve. sparkled collars, cuffs, belts and headbands add just enough bling to your overall look for the warm weather. bright accessories are also in tote for the spring. greens, aquas and oranges can be seen on bags, scarves and shoes.
