Here’s a quick rundown on the trends that you will be seeing in the streets this spring and summer, if you haven’t already! There are always some trends that are revisited or some that are relatively new. Either way, you should definitely experiment and see if the trends fit your sense of style! You’ll never know unless you try and it never hurts to expand and evolve your current style and closet.
Here’s a list of the most common trends of the season!

- The Collar Craze:
- There are so many ways to wear this look. The collar accessory can be a separate accessory like in the first photo. Wear the collar accessory with a high-neck knit sweater, and you give the illusion that you’re wearing a blouse underneath
- If you want to sport the collar craze look a little more discretely than those blinged out collars, find or make a collar with a simple but elegant tip like the second and fourth picture
- Marchesa’s dress from the Resort 2012 collection has subtle details of an embellished Peter Pan collar branching out to she shoulder blades.
- Check out the youtube clip below for a quick DIY tutorial on making your own collars! Best part, no one else would be caught in the same accessory as you!
- The Peplum:
The peplum was rather popular in the 40s and 50s and since that era seems to have made it back to 2012, I couldn’t be happier. It’s such a great silhouette, giving the hour glass look. Here are some peplum inspirations as tops and bottoms.
