It's that time of year again. A new season. A new season for fashion and a new season to start interviewing for internships. So now the dilemma of what to wear? Because obviously everything from last season is just, well, last season. And you're bored. Happens to the best of us. But don't worry, here are a few of the Spring 2012 trends.

1. Color Blocking With Bold Colors
Color blocking has been popular for the past few seasons now, but this season we can especially find color blocking with bold colors. This is one of my favorite looks because I love color. Maybe you don't love color? Well it is your season to be bold and daring then. One of my favorite brands that does color blocking so well is BCBG. You can find it in their previous collections as well as their current. They have just mastered the color blocking.

2. Safari Inspired
This is one of my all time favorite trends. Mainly because I love animal prints. Have you seen Michael Kors' collection? So fierce, so safari. I mean just look at the ad campaign. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this trend. You can get anything from accessories to clothing in this trend.

3. Flower Power
Floral is always huge for the Spring and Summer seasons. And that doesn't stop this Spring. Just take me advice and freshen up your florals a bit. (See what I did there?). I'm such a huge fan of this trend, so girly and romantic.

But obviously you don't have to follow the trends. Take them and make them your own. I can't wait to see all you fashionistas on the streets.
