A couple of weeks ago I attended a preview of Talbots‘ spring 2012 line. Although it was gray and rainy outside the hydrangea were in full bloom in the bright and sunny showroom. What a fun line-up is coming. Talbots continues the trend we saw on the spring runway shows – lots of color, florals and pattern mixed with geometrics and bright accessories.
See the mix of the rose floral jacket with the brushstroke rose-print blouse? You will see quite a bit of this type of coordination come spring.
I think I may have to put this statement-making coral necklace on my list
My other favorite was this easy going classic linen outfit. I love the lean length of the jacket and the Hepburn pant is a great staple. White linen just doesn’t last for seasons on end and adding a stylish shape in this classic summer fabric is a great way to update the essential summer white. I even like the navy and white batik scarf.
There were many choices in super casual attire as well. Easy going tops like this are great for throwing over white jeans.
I tend to buy fewer expensive items for my spring/summer wardrobe and rely on reasonable additions like these to my augment my designer staples. Look for these colorful easy to wear items in the spring as a simple way to update your warm weather style.
