Spring/Summer 2012 Trend #1: Floral Feast

Flower power is definitely in this season, as shown by this Peter Som number.  Although florals have been around from seasons back, flower prints this year are smaller, but still filling entire pieces for that uber-feminine vibe.

Spring/Summer 2012 Trend #2: Animal Instincts

Animal prints will still be in fashion this spring and summer, but they’re going to be more soft and subtle than they were in last fall and winter.  As demonstrated by this Oscar de la Renta piece (above), animal prints this season will have a more delicate approach with an understated fierceness that they will always have.  These Charlie Jade numbers also show us subtle fierceness:

Spring/Summer 2012 Trend #3: Tangerine Twist

Oranges and tangerines are the top bright colors this season because they highlight a lady’s luscious natural tan.  Channel that sexy tropical vibe just like that of these Fashion Week pieces with Charlie Jade’s hot tangerine dresses:

Spring/Summer 2012 Trend #4: Bold Geometric/Tribal Prints

What sets S/S ’12 from previous seasons of years past is its fixation on bold prints, both geometric and tribal in nature.  Bold and large or small and intricate, this season loves colourful prints that are eye-catching, but still having that bohemian sensibility that the season never loses.  Our collection of Charlie Jade dresses consists of many dresses with these prints, all to cater to your inner stylista:
