For this year Spring/Summer season us ‘girly girls’ are in for a treat. 2012 is the summer of cute clothes in sweet pastel colors. I really like this trend, although lace doesn’t look good on everybody (but that’s fashion for ya).

Another trend that’s popping in every store is patterns… patterns everywhere. I’m not a ‘pattern go get them’ kind of girl mainly because I can’t really match them up well enough and being a designer I believe there should be a flow in what you wear. Saying that, I don’t really like to see clashing patterns on myself, but I can appreciate them in other people if they are well combined. Diane Von Furstenberg (entitled Queen of print) can do a really awesome work with them. Check out her collaboration with Current Elliot ( a very hip label for young women).
Also for pretty print dresses Monsoon is having a mid season sale. http://www.monsoon.co.uk/midseasonsale/icat/midseasonsale/&bklist=icat,4,shop,women,midseasonsale
