Spring Preview: The H&M Spring Trend Guide for Women

Wednesday, January 25, 2012 • Permalink • 

Affordable fashion happy place H&M has just released their Spring 2012 Trend Guide on video. Personally, I love watching H&M's trend guides each season. I get super overwhelmed when I walk in H&M -- all I can see is cheapie tees and polyester suits. But, when I've done my homework via the Trend Guide, I suddenly am able to pick out those 5 or 10 super special pieces that scream runway but cost practically nothing. It's such a great way to cheat... too bad it can't help you skip the pay line!

This year the H&M Trend Guide calls out pastels, new ways of color blocking, silk trousers, pencil skirts and grown up looks with great tailoring. Check out the top looks in this video, along with commentary from H&M Head of Design Ann-Sofie Johansson, Instyle Magazine's Natalie Hartley and BE Magazine's Emelie Faure. I already have my eye on the white suit with the vintage white tee and the fabulous white flatform shoes. What are you loving?
