Colour is catching fire in the fashion world in time for Spring 2012. Designers and shop outfitters are showcasing a range of styles and lifestyles from contemporary to classic. Strong, defined colours are coming back and will be perfect for reflecting differing moods, vibes, occasions and impressions. Vivid brights, muted tones, fun-loving pastels, you name it, colour is king this year. At Centrale shopping centre we’ve put our finger on the fashion pulse to get a first look at what colour styles will be leading the charge this spring.
Oh yes, you know when you’ve been tango’d. Never has the phrase been truer than now. This provocative, blindingly brazen and bright orange style is a vivacious look for anyone with a great confidence in their fashion sensibilities. Representing the trend at Centrale is this Nuovo Drop Waist Coat from French Connection. It’s a vintage throwback to the sixties silhouette style with buckle detail and tab feature cuffs. Its stunning orange aura is Tangerine Tango all the way! It’s on sale for £65.00 right now.
Providing a jolt of positive and bright energy to any wardrobe is the Solar Power style for spring where yellow is brought in to shine a light on all the monochrome madness of last year! This look radiates warmth and cheer. We found these Whisper Mustard Wedge Shoes at Miss Selfridge that give you practical comfort and Solar Power style without overdoing it. Find a pair for your tootsies for £32.00.
It’s not all about brightness though. The Soladite Blue style brings calmness and balance to the spring wardrobe. It’s about adding a classical touch to the contemporary pallet. T.K. Maxx has plenty of classical mixed in with the contemporary, which is where we found this Blue V Neck Dress for day or evening wear. It’s a classy purchase at £28.00 and looks good on any girl.
Getting back to the more extravagant colour styles we reach the aptly named Cabaret. Going Proudly Pink is not just for girly-girls anymore. Take for instance this pink Floozie shoulder bag at Debenhams for £39.00. It’s got two shoulder straps with a tassel charm design and is Cabaret pink to its very being. This is a sensually styled bag that needs the shoes to match.
Being confident with colour is part of the trade-off here. Just as colour blocking presented its own challenge last year now we are seeing single colour combinations taking centre stage for spring and summer 2012. These are just some of the ideas that we had while browsing our range of favourite Centrale stores. Keep your eyes out for great finds and please let us know if you spot the things we didn’t! We might even post your fashion picks up on our Facebook wall.
