Fave Summer 2012 Trends

Although some of these overlap with this spring's trends, here are the fads, both old and new, I am most excited to try out this summer. What trends are you most anticipating this season? 

NEON (top left) - Sometimes overwhelming amounts of neon remind me of my middle school days, other times raves come into mind. This is why neon must be done right. This season, they've aced this trend on the runways. A splash of color on crack can add excitement to neutrals and further freshen up crisp white looks. Time to whip out that nail polish from seventh grade!

GOLD ACCENTS (top right) - Gold accents in the summer seem as odd to me as putting cake and ice cream in a blender. Once I tried both of these strange combinations, however, I couldn't get enough.  For some reason I seem to correlate gold with winter, I don't know why I never thought to give the sun a little bit of shining competition in its prime season. 

CROCHET (bottom left) - Okay, so not exactly a new trend, but still, gotta love the delicacy and femininity of a clean crochet, especially when paired with pastel (those ice cream shades really never get old). Bordering too sweet to handle, but somehow still appealing.

WATCHES (bottom right) - The time has finally come. It is now not only socially acceptable to wear watches, but stylish too?! Almost seems too good to be true. From chunky plastic watches which resemble prizes accompanying your Happy Meal to sleek gold or silver watches, everyone's perfect watch is bound to be out there somewhere. I'm still searching for mine.

I match gold with winter too I think it because of the autumn leaves still on the ground. Great post!

I'm the same with neon, I still can't wear it, it just reminds me of all the bad 90's fashions around when I was a kid! I love gold for summer though, it looks amazing when it catches the bright sunlight!
