Izabel Goulart for Blanco Spring 2012 Campaign

Keep it simple and classy this season with spectacular attire alternatives courtesy of Blanco. Get into the new season vibe with the bubbly and ultra positive campaign put together by the Spanish retailer for spring 2012 modeled by Brazilian beauty Izabel Goulart.

If you aren't already anxious for the spring-summer season to begin, the latest fashion ad campaigns can sure help you get there. With fabulous trendy items, a highly positive outlook and a total dedication for making the wardrobe renewal stage just a little simpler, the retailers are making their new season offerings impossible to ignore. The Blanco spring 2012 campaign is also constructed among those lines and enlists the help of Izabel Goulart in order to further intensify the new season spirit.

Modern, simple yet completely eye-catching, the new season attire options presented are surprisingly well diversified and appealing. Feminine, without turning to obvious style cliches in the category, the dresses are flowy, colorful and versatile, proving ideal choices for days when looking spectacular without worrying too much about textures, combos or layering is the desired goal. With geometrical prints as the main choice for the campaign, the style perspectives envisioned by the brand have a fresh vibe attached to them.

It's hardly a secret that pleats are one of the most important style trends of the season for those craving a touch of lady-like glamor, so keeping an eye on such details is of key importance if you're looking to update your wardrobe with pieces that highlight your fashion interest. Cozy jackets, shorts, colored trousers or fabulous handbags are also high on the list of style essentials for the next months.

Golden toned accessories are a quick way to add a luxurious, refined touch to a simple outfit, so oversized envelope bags or golden bangs are a fabulous addition to your existing collection. A touch of creativity and the right style choices can go a long way in helping you bring an outfit to the next level, so make sure to choose them wisely.

Lauren Conrad Fall in Love With… Cutouts


Cutouts sometimes get a bad rap. And understandably so. When worn with 7-inch Lucite heels and a zebra print micro skirt, there’s nothing chic about them. However, when done right, I really love the trend. I particularly love cutouts in unexpected places such as the collarbone area, the shoulders, at the hips of a modest dress or the back of a pretty tunic. In fact, cutouts were a noteworthy trend on the Spring 2012 runways. Designers including Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler and Roland Mouret featured the scissor happy statement on their catwalks solidifying the piecemeal look as a key trend for 2012.

Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite cutout options…



A cutout at the hip is demure yet incredibly sexy in a very understated way. I love how unexpected it is on this chambray dress.



 A sliced up neckline is a simple way to embrace this trend without going too far out of your comfort zone. This coral cutout swing top is the perfect summer staple for a night out on the town with friends or even a business meeting when paired with a relaxed linen blazer.



Last but not least, my favorite unexpected cutout is on the back. Make your exit as memorable as your entrance with a dress or blouse with a cutout back. I think this lace cutout mini is perfect for work or play.

TRENDING PYJAMAS


A foray into the pyjamesque

Lisa Armstrong | 26 May 2012

Audrey Tautou in Coco Avant Chanel wearing pyjamas is one of my all-time perfect Tautou style moments, but what I really love more than actual pyjamas, I realise, is the idea of pyjamas.

Club Monaco Fall 2012 Collection

The wide array of flattering new season options expands thanks to the fabulous fall 2012 collection put together by Club Monaco. Sharply tailored pieces with a distinctive preppy touch all combined to reflect the easy Californian style, the looks are sure to appeal to those who want to inject a little refinement into their looks without trying too hard. The sources of inspiration definitely proved fruitful for creating superb combos. These were: “Linda McCartney’s Life in Photographs, Sonia Delaunay’s masterful block prints and the leading men of the Silent Generation.”

The desire to blend the desire for modern vibes with versatile classics is beautifully reflected throughout the collection with pieces and accents that will not become obsolete as soon as the season will be over. The feminine perspective is still intensely reflected by the multitude of beautiful pleated skirts, fun dresses and a host of other creative details which never fail to deliver that polished vibe we constantly crave. Striped blouses, versatile cardigans, structured blazers, beautiful pea coats or parkas along with several abstract prints are just a few of the pieces that can easily land on the new season must have list.















Contrast and proper layering are equally important for creating the delightful ensembles presented, but maintaining clean structured line is essential for creating that gorgeous allure that simply exudes confidence and dare we say, glamor. Though neutral heavy, the collection manages to satisfy our cravings for color with gorgeous green, navy, orange or red tones and even a few very subtle color blocks. This way, visual interest is ensured while even the remote possibility of boredom is completely eliminated from the picture.

Aside from the multitude of tailored dress shirts, gorgeous skirts or seductive chocolate colored handbags which are the ultimate expression of style and versatility we must take a closer look at the perspective from which accessories are presented. Most of the time they are meant to add extra contrast to the looks without necessarily becoming the main point of attraction. Gorgeous wedges continue to dazzle while the ankle socks trend makes a quick comeback. Silk scarfs, silhouette enhancing belts, headbands or sunglasses complete the fabulous combos.
