AW12 Trend – Studded Shoes and Studded Jackets

Studs are officially everywhere and a big trend for this season. So it’s definitely time to get some studs in your life. I absolutely love this studded jacket from Zara, these studded shoes as seen on Pinterest and this studded jumper from Topshop. To be honest studs seem to be on everything this season – so stud it up!

SS12 Trend – Tropical Floral Prints

Maarten Van Der Horst, Capsule Collection at TopshopIf you have fallen in love with this season’s tropical  floral prints, check out the Maarten Van Der Horst capsule collection for Topshop.

This is the first capsule collection from the Fashion East designer for Topshop and it’s clearly focused on graphic prints and bold colours in tropical blues, greens and burnt oranges.

Inspired from his SS12 mainline range, it’s all about the a cool 1960’s Palm Springs pool style holiday. Think playsuits, blouses / tailored trousers combos and cocktail dresses.

Maarten Van Der Horst is a Dutch born London based designer who studied (only last year) at Central St Martins.

To see the whole collection visit Topshop.

I have fallen in love with this Spike Collar from the SS12 Freedom collection at Topshop. I love the obvious spikey punk meets Egyptian look, but also the bright yellow, white and gold beads which accentuate it perfectly. I can see this as a summer must-have with a neon dress, blazer and heels. In stores soon. I can’t wait!
