’Tis the season of exciting prints, eh? From tropical designs to digitally printed landscape pieces, there’s no end to the fun designers are having with their spring 2012 patterns. Recently we’ve been noticing a surge in one particularly dreamy design—the cloud print. Michelle Williams, Leighton Meester, and Alesha Dixon have all been sporting this look as of late, and *squee* this is giving us the exact same giddy feeling from when we first peeped Christopher Kane’s resort 2011 galaxy collection last year. By now, though, the print is EV-ERY-WHERE (even on Nikes!) so we’re excited for this fresh take on the atmospheric trend.
Just last month Michelle was spotted wearing a Victoria Beckham Collection spring 2012 cloud dress with beaded rain drops sprinkling down the front. This rainy day frock is super cute (we can’t hate anything with collars, sorry), but at the same time it’s a wee bit sadface because, well, every time someone looks at you they’ll be reminded of bad weather:( Regardless, we’d totally still sport it, you know, if we could afford to squeeze a few drizzly dresses in our closet. Leighton’s cumulonimbus Carven gown is a more red carpet-ready way to sport the trend. The soft, floor-grazing dress is covered in clouds, and we’re actually kind of surprised at how glam the sky can look! Here she dressed down the gown by wearing her hair in relaxed waves and keeping the jewelry to a minimum. British singer Alesha went for an edgier look in her cutout Vivetta spring 2012 cloud dress. The blue is much bolder and brighter than the others and, um, THOSE SHOULDERS. We like the contrast of the sharp edges with such a soft print, and her buckled-up shoes definitely add a heavy metal feel. So what do you think—are clouds the next big print trend?
