Summer Dresses. Fashion Trends for 2012



When it comes to dresses for summer 2012, the variety is so big that is hard to determine the main trends.  Length  is all different – from short to mid and long and the style and color is according to your taste. We would like to try giving a  classification, so will rely on length.

1. Light maxi dresses:

Maxi dresses are always part of the runaways, no matter the season, but during spring-summer 2012 they are going to be a top trend. The fabric is light – chiffon,  taffeta, linen. Colors and prints are very  versatile. Dolce & Gabanna, Emilio Pucci and Laura Biagiotti are all offering multi-layer dresses in floral prints.  Just Cavalli are after leopard prints and  Roccobarocco are pairing bright colors. Here are couple of  beautiful  maxi dresses, perfect for summer we found at bebe.com.

2. Mini or cocktail:

While some ladies prefer maxi dresses, others like to show some skin and mini dresses will help them do that. Dolce & Gabanna,  Balmain, Bluemarine, Betsey Johnson and Anna Sui are playing with colors and prints and are offering gorgeous   mini dresses in different patterns. So if you’d like to show off in a sexy mini dress, for the trendiest look pick one in an interesting print. Here are several suggestions from bebe.com:

3. Knee-length dresses:

Dresses with a knee-length are perfect for the ladies who don’t like too long but at the same time don’t feel comfortable enough to wear a mini dress. This kind of length is appropriate for all ages and occasions. For example by picking any of the bebe dresses below, you can easily show up at a red carpet event. With a tight pencil dress you will look stunning having lunch or dinner at a restaurant. The stylish dress will make you feel confident and sexy no matter the event.
