Forget ‘Fab’…forget ‘Fierce’…this year, it’s time to let our hair down and have ‘Fun’ once more with fashion. Colors, prints, wildly imaginative accessories are all the rage for spring/summer 2012 and the result is an exuberance we haven’t seen in years. Here are some interesting ways to play with fashion in the coming months:
1. Wear a dress. Even if jeans & a tee are your usual uniform, why not try something even easier and slip on a dress? Have a simple shift in cotton, linen or jersey made in a rainbow of colors and wear a different colored dress everyday.

2. Try on some prints. Gingham checks, stripes, polka dots…or if you’re daring, wear bolder prints like scarf prints, aquatic prints, bird prints or graphic floral prints.
Prints are fun worn simply or wildly mixed together

3. Boldly accessorize. Accessories this season come with a fair amount of wit, humor and a dash of cheekiness. Hats, bracelets, clutches, shoes…all are statement pieces that remind you not to take fashion too seriously.

Remember, clothes are not just for covering up. Fashion is creativity, fashion is expression, fashion is fun!
