City Girl Style: 5 Spring 2012 Must-Haves

Fashion Week always delivers fun trends to try and this spring, some are actually runway to real way wearable! From statement-making prints to new color combinations, there are trends for every city girl to try as the weather warms up at al fresco brunches, in the office and for late-nights out.
Peplum. Rock this feminine trend as a skirt, dress or even a shirt!  This shape adds curves to a boy-ish frame, without highlighting a fuller gal’s hips. Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere adds this frill in leather!
Mint Green (anything). This color is on-trend this season. Check out how Caitlin of Style Within Reach successfully strutted in mint on mint. 
Neon Accessories. Fron crossbody bags in neon pink to belts in neon yellow, this bright trend adds a pop of color making drab outfits fab. This is an easy and affordable way to update last year’s spring wardrobe to 2012 standards. Blair from Atlantic-Pacific adds a neon touch with bracelets to a neutral outfit. 
Brightly Colored Skinny Jeans. From soft shades of pink to deep purple, this trend may not last past this season, so don’t be afraid to go a bit cheap with styles from Old Navy, Target or Urban Outfitters. If you must splurge, J Brand, featured above, knows how to make a quality skinny.
Mixed Bold Prints. Stripes with polka dots? Leopard with floral? Yes and yes! Refinery29 shows how to mix prints like a pro.

What trends are you adding to your city girl wardrobe this season? xo
