Style-Delights: Summer Trend 2012 - Bird Prints

Summer Trend 2012 - Bird Prints

Pippa Middleton wore one to Wimbledon finals, Kate Middleton was ahead of the curve and wore it on her wedding eve and reused it last fall while visiting Canada! No, I am not talking about the Royal hats, but the latest, suddenly-everywhere bird prints. Unlike the leopard print or other animal prints, bird print is bold yet very delicate, pretty and feminine. Last year when designers and big brands like Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Jill Stuart and Tibi debuted their Spring 2012 line, bird prints were a big parts of of their collection. Spilling into this summer, bird prints have found their way on dresses, skirts, and tops and cute rompers. From pastel shades to navy blues and dark browns, these little birdies are beckoning us to take a fashion flight. Will you glide along?

  18. I'm loving them. I have a few items myself.
    My last purchase was a black sheer top from JcPenny at an awesome $10 :P I was actually there just to pick up an order an nothing more (aha).

    I find those prints , butterflies and hearts quite youthful and like that they add to "polk dots" :)
