Summer Fashion 2012

With the London 2012 Olympics fast approaching, fashion for summer 2012 is set to be bright, sporty and brimming with eye-catching prints and colours. Here are just a few of the trends we can expect to see taking over the high street in the coming months. 

Make it sporty 

What better way to see in this year’s Olympic Games than with sporty leisurewear? This summer, we’ll be seeing plenty of bold block colours, clean lines and athletic motifs, including stripes. Be daring with bright colours, whether funky orange, crisp white, royal blue and bright green – and channel sporty chic with slouchy tunics and 80s-inspired off-the-shoulder tops. 

Big, bold prints 

Whether it’s animal prints, 60s-inspired floral motifs or classic paisley, the printed look is in this season. If you’re confident enough to pull it off, go the whole hog and mix and match your prints from top to bottom, in an animal print or floral-themed jumpsuit. Complete the look with a small clutch bag in a contrasting colour and platform or wedge heels. 

Hips don’t lie 

Whichever colour palette you choose, make sure that the emphasis is on the hips. Whether with Mad Men reminiscent pencil skirts or tailored, close-fitting jackets, this season’s silhouette is all about accentuating curves to create a classic feminine look. To capture this trend, go for tops with an A-line design, and on your lower half opt for figure-hugging high-waisted trousers or pleated, voluminous skirts. 

If you’re ready to hit the shops armed with this summer’s top fashion tips, why not apply for a credit card online for a hassle-free shopping experience?
