Fashion and trends for s/s 2012 are so many, everyone can find her own style, playing with contrasts and monochromatic and multicolored combinations. The good of fashion is to experiment with news, eccentric or chic proposals, according to taste: we have seen fluo colors, white, ethnic and navy style, 50's revival, prints of every type, clothes that look like sweet candies, the fascinating deco style, 3D fashion etc. But, one of trends that I loved the most, is pastel colors: sweet, discreet and romantic, suitable for day and night. Cream, pink, light blue, mint are not news, but a lovely confirmation. Pastel colors are back to paint spring with a particular "candy" effect. The pallet of colors plays with soft shades, even mixed together.
A romantic style, that make us feel like child, but if it's calibrated with more aggressive accessories and inserts, can become more whimsical and particularly seductive. A delicate and whispered femininity, for a candy look, soft and gentle of true good girls.
