I love to start my day by reading through some of my favorite blogs. Trends after trends take over my computer screen. But I always find myself wondering, how could I ever wear that? Sometimes, runway trends are a little ridiculous and don’t fit with our day to day lives. We all deserve to be as fashion-forward as the models representing our favorite fashion brands!

Today, I want to talk about two Spring/Summer trends for 2012 that I personally find very difficult to wear. But no worries ladies! I will provide you with links and pictures to more realistic alternatives…are you excited yet?
Trend number 1: Head to Toe Prints
I know this trend look totally wacky…like you walked into your closet with your eyes closed and picked out an outfit. But we have to accept it as one of the trends of the season…so, let’s make our own rendition of this! We can try to mix prints within the same color palette. This will help the outfit look more structured.

Trend number 2: Bra Tops
|This feminine H&M bra top is very wearable|
|Pair the top with a Zara maxi skirt and you are set to trend!|
I know as I click through pictures from runway shows, I envy the boldness of the season’s trends. However, many of us wait for the trends to become “mainstream” before we start strutting them. Some runway shows can be deceiving because you forget that they are putting on a performance…everything MUST be over the top! But now you know that these trends can be easily translated into chic, everyday outfits that both you and I can wear.
