Fashion Trends for Spring Summer 2005

Spring-Summer 2005 is a vibrant collage of fresh colors, peppy accessories and prints inspired from all over the world. Animal prints, Indian and Oriental ethnic charm and nautical blues are in. Fashion goes global as western designs adorn exotic eastern-style embellishments and flairs.

Sequins continue to sparkle in the evening as they lend a glamorous glow to evening gowns. Chunky, wooden, beaded and layered necklaces team up with jeweled flats or wedges, floppy hats and metallic or muted hand and shoulder bags complete your spring-summer 2005 look.
In a sharp contrast to the more subtle trends last spring which were limited to bright and vivid colors like tangerine, azure etc., this year's trends set no limits at all. Everything is at it's extremes. Choose flats or wedges, mini handbags or oversized ones, neutral solids or animal prints or acid brights, you can be as fanciful as you wish and still be fashionable.
