Fashion Forecast for Spring/Summer 2012

Need some fashion inspiration this season? We’ve got you covered!

Westfield stylist, Donny Galella is here to give you the latest fashion forecast for Spring/Summer 2012.

1. Top trends

This season, keep your eyes out for tribal, floral and pastels. Each was a stand-out on the international runways and is versatile enough for real women to wear whatever their shape, size, personality or budget may be.

2. Throw, store and purchase

It’s time to give your wardrobe a spring clean which means throwing out that pair of super comfy, over worn, oversized jeans. Make sure you store that leather dress and boots from winter and be sure to add to your closet a cute floral print dress that can go from day to night.

3. Swimwear

Look for a style that suits your shape! If you're self conscious about your lower half then draw attention to the top half. Opt for a black bikini bottom and a bright coloured or print bikini top, this will ensure your upper body is the focus. Women concerned with their tummy should choose a one piece with rouching or gathering across the mid section. If a bigger bust is a must look for a swimsuit with ruffle details across the chest.

4. Essential summer pieces

- A good quality floppy brim hat.
- A floral print dress.
- A cute wedge shoe. It’s a summer staple for every women and celebs.
- A pair of statement sunglasses.
- A classic crisp white shirt. It’s an absolute must and versatile!
