Trends: Spring 2012 colours

For spring 2012, pastels had appeared on the runways and down to the fashion chain stores. While it may not apply to Australians now, since we're heading into autumn, the chances are high for this trend coming down under. Be it shoes, cardigans, blazers, trousers or tops, you're bound to see them everywhere this spring. So be prepared this spring, it'll be overly sweet like the colours of macaron shells.

There were many colours that were featured frequently in the runway shows. Be it pastel or neon, spring is all about colour and the runways have shown an array of colours that if I were to write down a list of all common hues, I'd be reporting on practically every colour of the rainbow. So here are my favourite colours:

 Tangerine: If you want to show off your confidence this spring, put on a nice tangerine dress, blazer or sweater as this bright colour surely would catch the eyes of others. However, if you're not into the brights, perhaps a pastel orange would work for you (which I'd definitely go for since I'm not brave enough to pull this off).

If you're not too into orange, there is the option of mint. Go for a nice mint scarf or a drape mint dress (anything drape) to make it look more romantic. This trend gives me an excuse to wear the knitted mint bangle I made a while ago.

Rodarte, Elie Saab, Vera Wang
 Yellow: Be it neon or pastel, various shades of yellow had appeared on the runways. I feel that the pastel yellows are the ones to go for as it is easier to wear than the bolder citron yellows. If you do want to go for the citron yellow, I suggest that it be made of a sheer material just to tone it down a little.
