Let the casual chic vibe with a retro touch be your mantra for the new season with the latest Current/Elliott spring 2012 lookbook. Check out the fun, girly outfit ideas endorsed by the brand for the hot days.

The latest spring 2012 lookbooks and ad campaigns sure know how to make us crave the sunny summer days not only with the fresh and exciting outfit suggestions but also with things like scenery or overall relaxed vibes that make us recall our own pleasurable memories for the season. The Current/Elliott spring 2012 lookbook is definitely one that makes us anxious for the new season to begin from both of the perspectives. With a subtle retro vibe, a delightful sense of effortless chicness and a funky vibe, the latest collection has all the elements it needs to be memorable.

Colorful without being overly daring, filled with romantic yet fairly subdued prints and unexpected accessories, the collection features some interesting choices with a distinguishable playful vibe. Polka dots, stripes, pleats, checkered patterns, retro floral prints and of course the always popular denim pieces definitely highlight some of the hottest trends in a series of simple and easy to recreate outfits that are sure to draw a few looks.

Although focused on fairly basic tones, the outfits manage to stand out thanks to the fun, vibrant color inserts, well defined structures and of course to the well chosen accessories, whether we are talking about practical options such as oxfords or converse or more eclectic choices like bow or bunny ears hair accessories. The choices presented sure serve as cute reminders that fashion should be fun and playful at times as opposed to ultra sophisticated or with well set boundaries.

Feminine or simply casual, the most important pieces of the collection immediately stand out: white short sleeve blouses, carrot pants, pleated skirts, cropped tops and ripped jeans and different types of washes or flirty summer dresses are just some of the most important pieces to consider for the season. Casual chic outfits with a romantic vibe as a quick way to look spectacular seems like a simple mission if we are to take style notes from the latest Current/Ellliott lookbook.
