TREND ALERT: BOLD PRINTS


With all of the amazing color trends Spring has to offer, bold prints are a new and vibrant way to add even more fun into your wardrobe! From Burberry Prorsum to Proenza Schouler, designers presented a number of beautiful bold prints in their Spring/Summer 2012 runway collections. If you want to follow this trend, birds, flowers and graphic designs are prints you should look for when incorporating this trend into your wardrobe!
                     Here are a few bold print Jovani styles that you can wear this Spring!

Beautiful bold prints were presented best in the Spring/Summer 2012 collection of Oscar De La Renta. Bold and graphic prints are a classy way to incorporate this trend into your look. Depending on the design and color, these prints are the most stylish way to stay in style without over doing it. The graphics of these bold prints are eye catching and very interesting when creating a specific look. These Jovani dresses both have very distinctive prints and are perfect for a night on the town! This Spring, being bright bold and vibrant is the way to go!


BUTTERFLY PRINTS

Birds and Butterflies

Beautiful bird prints were seen all over Spring/Summer 2012 collections of designers such as Marc Jacobs and Carolina Herrera, Jovani Fashions used butterflies in this trend instead! Ditch those basic zebra, leopard, and snakeskin print pieces and try something new! When wearing any type of animal print, you automatically give off a safari, tropical, or wildlife look, which makes this print trend of bird and butterflies a great contrast to a softer, feminine and girly approach to this traditional trend of animal prints.



FLORAL PRINTS

Want to be fun and flirty? Wear floral prints! It is the best way to pull that off! These beautiful Jovani dresses have a classic silhouette and trendy print, so they make amazing
party dresses for the Spring and Summer!

For many, prints are young, for most prints are fun, but all should consider incorporating some type of print into their wardrobe this Spring! Whether it’s a scarf, dress or shoe, bold prints add a certain type of style to your look. The fun part about the bold prints of these Jovani dresses are that, accessorizing is no major task. Simply wear long, stud, or hoop earrings with a great cuff and you're set!

When it comes to shoes and a handbag, you can either be safe and pair your look with neutral colors like white, grey, black or beige, or be fun and choose a shoe and handbag that matches a color in your dress! You can even dress it up by pairing your look with metallic colors like silver or gold.

If being fun is the route you decide to take, it would be best to choose a color that is the least prominent in your dress, which will complement the dress to its full potential.

NEW TREND ALERT: NUDE/BLUSH TONES

Beige and Metallic 3/4 Length-Sleeved Dress. Jovani Style 7749
Flesh colored shades of cream, caramel and mocha, are the sexiest colors of clothing to go for this Spring! Not only does it create a bit of an optical illusion to the naked eye, it gives you an endless amount of options to play around with your look! Whether it be a nude colored dress, shoe, jacket, handbag, or even lipstick or nail polish, pairing anything with these neutral colors works effortlessly. Another similar color to this flesh toned hue would be a blush tone! Blush colored hues would be found in between the beige and pink color family. Depending on the undertone of your complexion, blush toned hues can also be considered as a nude color.

The popularity of these colors are slowly rising as spring slowly approaches us, giving you fashionistas every reason to follow this trend! Zac Posen used fabulous flesh toned colors in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection with an array of beautiful full length gowns. Most recently, this nude trend has been followed by celebs such as Heidi Klum, Charlize Theron and Anne Hathaway. They all have been seen all over the red carpet of award shows, such as the Golden Globes. Besides the fact the beautiful weather of spring is right around the corner, another reason to begin to incorporate this popular color trend into your look should be Valentine’s Day! For most, the color of romance consists of a cliché color palette of reds and pinks, but to us, it’s nude!

Try something new and go for a natural refreshing color of blush tones and nude hues. From sheer-crystal embellished dresses, to beaded lace looks, Jovani has a beautiful range of cocktail dresses and evening dress that you can incorporate into your Spring wardrobe to follow this trend. Check it out!

From the lightest shade of cream, to the darkest shade of chocolate, we all have different complexions. The good thing is, following this "nude" trend works great for everyone! Shopping for flesh-toned fashions is like shopping for makeup, you either go for a color that is exactly one shade lighter or darker. This will provide you with an effortless look, allowing you to seamlessly pull off your outfit.

When it comes to shoes and/or a dress, following this rule very imperative! As we know, going with a nude color pump elongates your lovely legs. So when it comes to a dress, especially a body consious dress, wearing the perfect shade that specifically fits YOUR complexion, gives you the same effect, allowing you to appear slimmer!


Going for anything in the nude color family is so clean, so easy and super simple. The fun part is paring it with fun colors! Again, incorporating shoes, accessories, and makeup are a huge factor when coming up with a look! When wearing flesh tone colors, pairing bold primary colors, bright neons, or pale pastels would be the most fun, stylish, and interesting way wear this look to its absolute full potential! When wearing a blush toned color, simply incorporate black, white, or even a metallic, it will instantly give you a polished look!

Speaking of polished, dusting your home and changing your linens shouldn’t be the only spring cleaning you do next month. Spruce up your wardrobe with this new color trend and you’ll be sure to start off the new season with a clean and refreshing look! 

So if you’re that fashionista in search of a new spring trend, going with a nude or blush tone next season is a definite
must!
