Spring Summer 2012 - what to save and what to wear next year...

1950s Floral Kitch meets 1980s exaggeration

The first trend I see is....
1950s floral dresses/pleated skirts with fitted tops or flirty longer length pencil skirts as seen on the A/W catwalk big, check out Prada, Erdem, Dolce and Gabbana and Diane Von Furstenberg.
Vintage shops in Brick lane will give you a great choice of this style or buy a big skirt from a charity shop( lots springing up in British High Streets ) and if you have sewing skills rejig it to your size. Look out for quirky conversational patterns. The pencil skirt is a main wardrobe item,  so versatile and sexy, wear with big jackets as seen in the Prada show with flats or heels. The prom style dress as seen lots in Mad Men and now new retro  American series Pan Am is more for evening wear, white satins and shimmery textures. 
For casual wear I want to see big baggy jumpers/tops worn with bright or striped capri cropped trousers....

more musings to follow later as there are many more S/S12 trend pointers to report.

Pleated skirt and large 50s style jacket, keep your pleated skirt it will get lots of use in the summer

Elegant midi length pencil skirt continues from Autumn Winter trend, love these kitch Prada skirts, these will be copied by the high street in some form.
