Awards Show season is also upon us, which means you're favourite celebs will be out on the red carpet in an assortment of looks. Shades of gold have always been a popular choice, from rich embellishments to gorgeous liquid gold - Cate Blanchett just walked the red carpet at the 2012 AACTA Awards in a dress that combined both - check out this spectacular piece by Alexander McQueen.
For your own event, you have the same choices - embellished Read more: Gold Dresses for Spring 2012: All that glitters is gold - sequins, embellishment or liquid gold
If you work in an office, and want to add a fresh twist to your current look, just pick up a minimal pink shirt or blouse.. something chic and simple that you can wear with your favourite black skirt and black patent pumps (professional and pretty!). Or tuck a pink shirt into slim fit trousers - something in grey or even navy, for a more contrasting look. Pink dresses ARE suitable for the office, you just need to make sure it isn't too bright (yet!) and the style has to be office-appropriate. If you're uncertain, throw on a black boyfriend jacket, with black boots, and you're all set.

Evenings are easy.. wear a statement pink dress with strappy gold sandals, or nude patent pumps. For the more fashion forward type, opaque tights and black ankle boots will give you a bit of an edge. Or you can wear that same pink work blouse over snappy leather trousers, or python print jeans.
Neon pink is a trend on the spring horizon, but the soft shades of pink below are perfect transitional pieces for the new season!

It's time for a fresh look at lace this season - it's the trend that just keeps on giving!
We have seen plenty of lace over the past couple of season - from gothic black to bold jewel tones - and it has also become a favourite on the red carpet. Who can forget Michelle Williams in her bright red Valentino lace trim gown at the 2012 SAG Awards...? And on the subject of red lace Valentino, Emma Watson looked fantastic in London just last week for the launch of her Lancome collection of lipsticks & nail polish at Selfridges.

With a whole new selection of spring arrivals to choose from, THIS trend is becoming increasingly clear - or unclear, depending on how you look at it! We knew there would be new and interesting prints to choose from, many of them mixed prints, but fresh abstract prints are now starting to take shape, and should definitely be included when building up your new spring wardrobe!
Abstract comes in many shapes and sizes - it can be smudged floral, an assortment of random geomteric patterns, or just a pattern that you can't quite define (tough to put your finger on - not quite striped, or floral, or anything else really!). The prints are mostly oversized, making a stronger statement than normal, so keep your accessories to a minimum.

The blush pink trend should be at the top of your list when it comes to transitioning your wardrobe from winter to spring, and most definitely from spring into summer. You can mix and match blush very easily - black and blush makes a sharp statement, blush and grey is soft and sophisticated, and blush paired with white will be fresh and feminine in those hot summer months!
This trend calls for fabrics that are delicate - silks and chiffons can be worn with wool trousers Read more: Blush Trend Spring 2012: BCBGMAXAZRIA Marta Sequin Dress & more shopping the trend!

We have seen the Floral Print trend in many shapes and sizes over the past few years (it never really goes out of style), but floral and printed denim is a fresh and fun way to wear feminine prints in an assortment of colours. This is also a great way to upgrade your casual look without investing in new skirts and dresses!
Shapes of denim have shifted a little - we welcome the return of some high-waisted styles, and retro flares, but skinny jeanns (and jeggings) continue to be very popular. For your next pair of jeans, Read more: Floral Denim Trend Spring 2012: Fun, fresh & versatile denim trend for the new season!
