Spring 2012 Preview: Color me EXCITED!

Fall may have only just begun, but Urban Chic’s buyers are dreaming of SPRING!  While the rest of us were coveting the cozy sweaters and coats in stores now, they were busy attending the Spring 2012 Coterie in New York City where they got a sneak peek at all of the wonderful and amazing things our fave designers have in store for us! Check it out…

Holy tons of amazing clothes!  No need to be jealous of them though (ok, maybe a little!) because they are generously sharing their photos and the inside scoop on what’s new and totally fab for next year.  And what’s the first thing we are all looking for after a dull, gray winter?  COLOR of course!  Here’s a look at the hottest color trends that you can expect to find on Urban Chic’s racks in the coming months…

Trend #1: YELLOW!

Fashion’s most cheerful color is everywhere for spring 2012!  All of Urban Chic’s favorite designers got in on the trend, including Rebecca Taylor…


…and Shoshanna!  Expect to find lots of this sunny hue sprinkled throughout our racks next year.

Trend #2: PASTELS!

Our buyers found these yummy, ice cream and sherbet-inspired colors popping up at all their favorites booths!  Lime, lemon, pale pink, tangerine, lavender, coral…they’re all here for spring!  Check out this amazing display…

…and what about this rack of delectable cashmere from Minnie Rose?  I’ll take one of each please!

More Minnie Rose…don’t even try to resist!

And here’s one in PINK!  GORGEOUS!

Alice & Olivia was all about the pastels as well. That floral printed dress is TO DIE FOR!

How cool are these pastel prints from Tibi?

Trend #3: NEON!

If you are the child of the 80s like I am, your elementary school photos probably feature hot pink scrunchies, electric-blue leggings, or, best of all, a white tee splattered with all colors of the neon rainbow.  Now that I am a (ahem) sophisticated adult, I’m loving this upscale version of the trend with leather accents on Rebecca Minkoff bags!


Want to look on-trend next year?  Try colorblocking!  Our buyers saw it everywhere, including Joie, Tibi, and Shoshanna.  They also spotted colorblocked dresses at Milly…

…and Karina Grimaldi.


If you’re sporting denim in nothing but a million different shades of blue, black, and gray, you’re gonna need an update for 2012!  Colored denim is here to stay, and no one embraces the trend better than our owner Lindsay’s favorite, Current/Elliott!  Check out those rose-printed shorts and yellow and green polka-dotted skinnies…

I don’t know about the rest of you, but all of this great stuff almost makes me want to fast-forward though fall (my favorite season)!  And believe it or not, there is more to come.  In my next post I’ll share even more of our buyers’ pics, favorite trends, and everything you’ll need to be CHIC for spring, so stay tuned!  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
