all worth recognizing.

I have a theory and it goes like this… trends are only as good as your willingness to fully embrace them. So, if you feel like a trend is unflattering or “just not you,” don’t wear it. Period. I think it’s important in fashion to understand what the hottest, chicest trends are, of course, but I also find it equally important to use careful discretion with which ones you put on your person 😉

SO, with that being said, here are a few of my favorites from Spring 2012 collections. You decide for yourself if you’ll be sporting these looks:

I ABSOLUTELY ADORE PASTEL OF ANY SORT ESPECIALLY IN THE SPRING. IT JUST MAKES ME HAPPY. SHERBET ANYONE?

KNIT DRESSES ARE SO ON TREND. WEAR ONE IN A BOLD COLOR THIS SPRING AND WERK IT, GIRL.

FLUORESCENT ORANGE-TASTICNESS. NOT A FAN OF ALL WHITE? WEAR A BOLD ORANGE. SO CHIC.
