Whether you are fighting off the chill of Minnesota or basking in the 70 degree weather of Florida, it’s that time of year again. Spring Fashion Trends!! I know it can be hard to think Spring in early February, but bear with me! This is the time of year when the best selection of Spring is out there.

But before we step into Spring Styles, I wanted to remind you that February is the BEST time to purchase a bathing suit (yes, I said bathing suit) as the biggest selection is available and when purchasing swimwear it’s best to have the odds in your favor! Not sure which is the best cut for your Body Silhouette? Regardless of where you purchase your beachwear, visit www.landsend.com and check out their Shop by Silhouette guide to help you make the best choice.

Now, on to my top three picks for Spring 2012!

COLOR BLOCKING– Color blocking fashion is one of the hottest new trends for the season. It combines the use of two or more blocks of color in an outfit. Simply it means – creating an outfit by putting blocks of different solid colors next to each other. It can include monotone, bright colors, muted colors, contrasting and complimentary colors. Clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories can all feature color block designs or can make up different blocks of color to be put together for a color block outfit. The beauty of color blocking is that it is a powerful tool in balancing out body symmetry. For instance if you are more generous in your hip area than your upper body, wear a bright color block on top and a dark (black, brown or navy) on your lower half.

HOT COLORS– Two beautiful color trends for 2012 are the refreshing tiffany blue and the clear warm bright of geranium. Grab a few pops of color in a blouse, scarf, shoes, handbag or sparkling fashion jewelry. These beautiful tones will keep your wardrobe looking fashion forward.

SHOES–  Let’s begin with the preppy inspired espadrilles. You may have some hiding at the back of your closet. Pull one of the Hot Colors in with your espies or go with a NAUTICAL navy to keep in line with yet another trend of this year. This spring the kitten heel is also a big hit. A great choice for feminine, classic and comfortable.

When is it time to begin wearing Spring Trends? As soon as they hit the market. Ok, I get it… you may be living in the snow and not ready to pull out your espadrilles, but you can refresh your winter warmies with a pop of color in your scarf or as simple as a springy new lip color!
