If the Zac Posen Spring 2012 collection showed a great emphasis on femininity, sophistication and especially elegance, the Z Spoke lookbook for spring 2012 uses a broader approach, focusing on casual wear with a few elegant touches now and then. The designer himself reveals the inclination for wearable clothes rather than ultra trendy items: “This is a wardrobe, and it’s nice to be able to mix it up and show the diversity of it.”

Femininity and proper accessorizing are two of the most obvious areas of focus for Zac Posen. Flirty dresses are a must have staple for the spring summer season, so the focus on flirty pieces is completely understandable. Airy mid length dresses with a romantic allure, abstract prints as opposed to clearly defined floral prints that have come to dominate in the past season, permissive A-line skirts, subtle ruffle details are some of the most well defined fashion trends in the first part of the lookbook.

The right handbag style is crucial for creating a fabulous look and the high emphasis on proper accessorizing is well reflected as many of the outfits are completed with the Z Spoke spring 2012 handbags. From classy and practical to eye-popping and glamorous, the handbags become an instant focal point that adds a whole new spin on the outfits presented.

Perfectly fit, well defined waist, classy yet sexy touches are the most desired characteristics when focusing on more formal wear. Well defined silhouettes are the epitome of effortless refinement and elegance and this trend was well reflected in many of the designer collections presented during the New York Fashion Week. Use simplicity, well defined style cues and classy, unquestionably elegant yet versatile pieces to be able to create fashionable looks in the next season by taking inspiration from the looks put together by Zac Posen.
