As always...Black and white fashions defy time, and keep their well earned place as big colors for spring and summer of 2012. Black and white fashions were big on the runways this season, most fashion designers showed black and white in some fashion or another. Let's face it - you can't go wrong with the traditional black and white outfit. The designers know this little fact, and continue to cash in on it.

This season dresses, and skirts will remain must haves... But this season fashion designers have also given us all kind of fun fashions. Fashions that will offer wonderful vivid prints, stripes, and geometric prints - not to mention some great new takes on animal prints... The main theme this spring is somewhat tailored, and classic, but with a touch of bold, and edgy.

The big color trend for 2012 spring/summer is mint green... Yes you read right - mint green is the biggest color trend for the upcoming season. The racks will be full of fashions that all done up in a soft whimsical version of mint green.

Another color trend being you will see this spring, especially in handbags and shoes is neons: bright blues, yellows, greens, oranges, and hot pinks.

Do you crochet? Well it's back... Crochet vests are big this spring, maybe you can look to the back of your closet. Maybe you might have a bit of a crochet number lurking.

The color that jumps out at the head of the line for this spring, when it comes to neon shades, is orange! Less face it there is no other color that can make a loud fashion statement quite like bright orange. So need a new handbag or a great pair of shoes? Make it orange.

Stripes - Stripes seem to hold a place in fashion year after year. You can't go wrong wearing stripes, from head to toe...

Floral patterns - tend to stay popular no matter what’s going on in the fashion world, but this spring they are set to be more popular than ever. Flowery materials of all kinds will be hitting the stores this year, but it’s the beautiful floral dresses that are really going to take off. Make sure you’re ahead of the fashion curve by choosing floral designs that will also look great for years to come.

Modernise your look

For a modern take on flower power, choose floral designs that focus on pretty pastels or big and bold colours. Avoid tie-dyes or flower decals and choose patterned materials instead.

Explore new designs

You’re also likely to find that while there are lots of traditional looking flowery fabrics on sale there are also plenty of modern and splashy floral designs on offer. Both are hot this spring, so the choice is all yours.

How to wear floral patterns

This spring, team floral dresses with peep toe sandals for a glimpse of old fashioned glamour, or choose some simple slip on ballet pumps if you have a busy day ahead. A light cardigan in a neutral colour is the perfect companion for your floral print dress.
