These Baroque inspired scarf-prints have been seen on Spring 2012 runways. For those of you who are not fans of florals, these more classic prints are definitely worth trying out.

COLOR was big last summer and it will be through 2012 but this time it's neonized! Be careful now, the last thing you want is to look like a highlighting marker, so make sure you pair it with neutrals to tone down and balance your color equilibrium. Here are some examples of some of my favorites pieces..
1- Diane von Furstenburg - Sporty Drew python-effect leather tote.
2- Camilla and Marc - Cylinder crepe and jacquard dress
3- Current/Elliott - The Stiletto low-rise cropped skinny jeans
4- Diane von Furstenburg - Lensley crepe and silk-satin top
5- Etro - Floral-print jacquard blazer
6- Esquivel- tri-tone leather sandals
7- Christian Louboutin - Meteorita 140 metallic leather sandals

Along with the return of the 1960's fashion trends come the jewel tones for this Fall/Winter 2011-2012. Pair them up with neutrals or with an unpredictable color to rock the color blocking trend!

Maybe Delfina (a fourth generation Fendi) took a recent trip to the Middle East, or maybe it was mere coincidence, either way, i can't help but notice the obvious resemblance between her spring 2012 necklace choker and the Bedouin Al Sadu weaving.

Christian Louboutin's new suede embroidered pump of art was inspired by the Kutch embroidery. Forget those chunky chokers, and sequenced clutches, this is all you to embellish! 
Talk about the trickle up theory!

Inpired by the 1966 Yves Saint Laurent "Le Smoking" first tuxedo for women, designers have masculinized their Spring 2012 collection by adding tuxedo elements like lapels, vests, tapered trousers and  waist coats. 
Even though women today dont need a "tux" to make them feel empowered, these masculine ensembles are surely liberating and wickedly attractive.

As mentioned earlier, the 1960s fashion trends have taken the FALL 2011 runways by storm. We have seen the comebacks of several retro classics and fads like bouffant dresses, cat eye sunglasses, and polka dots. Speaking of polka dots, many designers have incorporated them into their fall 2011 ready to wear collections. So to be stylish this winter, make sure you find your SPOT(s) !
