Relaxed vibes and femininity shown in a simple yet super exciting manner make the spring 2012 Urban Outfitters a definite must-watch. Sporty and feminine, simple yet undoubtedly interesting, the looks are an exiting alternative view of the latest trends that can be easily adapted to suit various preferences. While there’s a definite focus on some trendy vibes, versatility is not left aside in favor of temporary fads and the balanced approach makes the looks all the more appealing.
Despite the fact that neutral tones are generously included in the collection, it becomes fairly obvious that in the brand’s vision color is the spice of life. Bold tones either bring all the attention on themselves or manage to spice up a simple outfit. Prints also bring their contribution to creating a fashionable, spring look. Animal prints have a particularly strong influence in the latest catalog by the brand as they have the ability to instantly become the focal point.
Other interesting elements are tribal influences, which can be found mostly in the accessory choices. The uber versatile stripes pattern proves once again that simple elements have an amazing power to make an outfit look good. Still, looking trendy doesn’t have to revolve gorgeous, pain inducing shoes. Instead, the brand prefers comfy sneakers as a way to make creating outfits fun and a bit unexpected at times while also making staying fashionable easier.
The emphasis on utility with a subtle focus on the latest mainstream trends is evident if we take a good look at accessories which, with very few exceptions, are kept on the fairly practical side. Discreet necklaces, colorful scarfs, headbands or sunglasses are the main accessories choices that complete the outfits and manage to create an exciting, alluring vibe that keeps things interesting.
