Spring 2012 Trends & My Faves

This post is all about matching the HOTTEST Spring trends of 2012 with the newest products from mark!!!  Plus I've included some of my personal favorite items from mark in my Spring haul video!

Spring Trend #1: Bright Bottoms
From the runway to the red carpet, from the office to high school, from celebrities to fashion lovers (like me),  this trend has popped up everywhere this Spring. Don't be afraid to mix bright colors!

Make your mark in these:

mark On The Bright Track Sweatpant Jeans
mark Going To New Lengths Skirt

Spring Trend #2: White Blazer
A basic white blazer is extremely versatile. How will you wear yours?

Wear it the mark way:

Spring Trend #3: The Watch
Watches are back in a big way. A masculine style watch is made feminine when you add a stack of bracelets.  A designer watch not in your budget? Try our mark version for a fraction of the cost. ;)

Wear it the mark way:

Spring Trend #4: Cropped Top
A great comfy casual look. If you're nervous about baring your belly (like me), add a razor back tank or cami underneath and let it slide off one shoulder.

The mark.girl way:

Spring Trend #5: Crossbody Bag
I have been seeing these everywhere from high fashion to street fashion on women and girls of all ages. Wear it long with the strap across your chest or tuck the strap in the use it as a clutch.
