Australia’s location in the Southern Hemisphere means that in theory we are always 6 months behind the fashion trends generated in the US and UK. However, sometimes this works to our advantage, because of our mild climate we can start trying out the Fall/Autumn trends during our Winter, long before the warm breezes and BBQ’s of Spring arrive.
Colour and trend forecasting is a huge business and companies such as Pantone invest large sums of money getting it right. So what will we be wearing for Spring 2012 (or Fall/Autumn for those in the Northern Hemisphere)?
In short* it’s all about;
What will I be wearing? Well it won’t be orange that’s for sure, there are very few colours that suit me less. At best, I might try some orange accessories such as a belt or bag. As for the rest? I like them a lot especially royal blue, teal green and deep magenta. Luckily, most of them already feature in my wardrobe so it will just be a matter of updating them for the new season. Stay posted for some upcoming looks incorporating these shades.
How about you? What colours are you coveting for Spring?
