Which Prints Will Be a Trend in 2012?

Wondering what kind of print we should pick to decorate our outfit throughout 2012? Let’s find it out by referring to Spring 2012 runways. Forget floral, that’s too obvious for Spring collections. Designers get more creative this season in exploring prints and there are some patterns that caught the designers’ eyes more than the rest; they are bird, baroque and landscape.

1. Bird

This print filled the runways with whimsical feelings. Since an image of a bird is usually composed of more than one colors, it makes the bird prints easy to be matched with various colors, soft pastels, bright bold colors, even metallic tones look great with bird print.

2. Baroque

Baroque is a pattern that gives rich, ornamental and antique vibes to the fabric. Baroque pattern used to be applied as an embroidery, but these days designers have taken them to a more modern direction by using assorted textiles like luscious metallic and light fabric.
