Key Fashion Trends for 2012

fashion trends, spring/summer catwalk for 2012
Although the spring/summer catwalk for 2012 is the first port of call if you want to tune in to this year’s key fashion trends, we’re increasingly turning to the latest looks on the big and small screen to give us the fashion inspiration we’ll need this year.

As the new series of Mad Men makes a reappearance on our TV screens this March, we’ll be well and truly immersed in glamorous, sixties style, as seen on the catwalk for Burberry and Miuccia Prada. The early 1960s look has been making a splash in the high street for a while now, and the bohemian folky style has long been championed by the likes of stylish songstress Florence Welch.

Elsewhere, it looks like a very British, mod look is having a come-back – in order to channel that Mary Quant style, seek out a boyfriend shirt, flat loafers and, of course, a mini-skirt to channel the perfect androgynous look.

Meanwhile, Hollywood will be taking us even further back in time for style inspiration, with Baz Luhrmann’s highly anticipated film remake of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novella, The Great Gatsby. Taking inspiration from the 1920s jazz era, styles will include loose-fitting flapper dresses and big pearls, as well as heavy doses of fringing, feathers and sequin embellishments.

Other trends to watch out for include the return of metallics – the high street is expected to be brimming with bronze, gold and silver coloured pieces, from evening clutch purses to gladiator sandals. But it won’t be all dark metallics and monochrome this year; already the shops are filling up with bright and busy florals, as well as some colorful and exotic jungle prints for spring.

If you’re planning a shopping trip to stock up on the latest trends, an American Express charge card is the ideal accessory, as with no pre-set spending limit you can be flexible with your purchases. Alternatively, an American Express credit card will allow you to earn a range rewards points from Avios, Nectar to Starpoints on virtually everything you buy – whichever trend takes your fancy.
