With the yellow pollen haze settled over Columbia, we see that spring is officially in full bloom. Actually, we really never had a winter to begin with (thankfully). So, that being said, it’s time to pick up a few new pieces for your spring 2012 look, considering the fact that you’ve worn all your tees and tanks throughout the ‘winter’ season. Four major trends that I’m going to spend ALL of my tuition refund check on (you know what I’m talking about, don’t kid yourself) are those that we will utilize literally every day. Especially since we're all on a college budget. No more splurging on that ‘night out on the town’ dress that you might wear twice because it was ‘trending’.
Who doesn’t love a good pastel?! You can incorporate this trend into literally everything: from shoes to hairpieces and even nails. Think Easter or ice cream.
What I would give to be able to pull off this trend and attend P. Diddy’s White Party (I would probably give my right arm, just saying). From wearing a LWD (little white dress) to a two-piece white suit, I believe this trend will be here for a while. I know I'll be utilizing it A LOT.
This little chapter encompasses two trends that I absolutely adore. Say farewell to the 1970's that's been present in collections for some time. "Marie Claire" has dubbed these trends ‘The Great Gatsby’ and ‘Sexy Suburban Housewife.' Tell me that doesn’t paint a picture. Yes, the updated flapper and new and improved housedress will definitely make you want to sip a martini by 2 a.m. while vacuuming in heels. This look lends sheer elegance and femininity.
Dolce and Gabbana
So if you're really looking for a night out, whether it be in the Vista or Five Points, these new twists on old trends are definitely the way to go.
