In addition to id’ing the must have pieces for spring 2012, I’ve also picked up on some have prints. The idea is to be inspired by the designer’s dossier that danced down the runway – and not to mimic it exactly. You can pick up a tribal element here and a floral piece there to achieve spring trend balance, not abundance.
Make the Cut Runway: Not technically a “print” this trend appeared on a variety of runways and each application the specific fabric details catch your eye like a print would. This trend can be playful, sophisticated and full on bombshell interpretation.

Garden Party Runway:For certain there were runway looks with soft petals, and sweet posies, but these styles feature flowers that could not be confused with shrinking violets. The color is bold, cheerful elevates the sweet flower beyond the Easter Egg roll.Garden Party Real Way:Shop: Blouse, Cami, Dress, Short, Skirt, Bangle, Pump
