8 Must Have Summer 2012 Fashion Finds

Summer 2012 is upon us! I found myself looking for some key pieces to update my wardrobe to stay cute and ahead of the fashion curve (or at least not behind it!) Overall, the feel for 2012 is romantic, feminine, flouncy, airy and full of movement. Think uber girly, pastel, floral and lace. Also keep in mind that brights and color blocking are all the rage right now- so any of these pieces in vivid colors are a win win.

Here are a few things that will keep you looking fresh this season! Bonus? None of these will break the bank!

The modern sundress- look for tighter tops and flirty, girly skirts and 90’s inspired silhouettes.

Bright, bold colored jeans- all bright colors, crops and shorts all look great in technicolor hues.

Peplums- tops, jackets, dresses with the frilly waistline accents. Peplums are hot, not to mention FLATTERING! Yeah!

Maxi Dress- the ultimate in fun, breezy comfort and style. This particular Maxi is also colorblocked for added style points!

Floral Skirt- look for all lengths from micro short to ankle length boho chic.

Super sheer tee- layer these with a bralette or cami.

Flowy top- pair with micro denim shorts, colored crops or white capris.

Flatforms / low wedges- heel haters rejoice! These are sassy step ups over standard flip flop summer fare. You can wear them all day, without the aches and pains of heels and higher pitched wedges.

    Oops, I wasn’t finished commenting! But I love all of these, especially the wedges and the skirt. I would wear all of them. I love bright colors, and  I think they are the only way to dress during the summer.

      I know, I am loving the trends this summer. I still need to get the wedges and a peplum top or dress. I just haven’t found one that I love, but I love how flattering they are!

    The maxi dress is perfect for the party Im going to partnered with the wedge.
