FASHION - SS12 GANT For The Girls

Gant press day

I consider GANT to be more well known as a menswear brand, and although the womenswear isn't all my cup of tea there are some fab SS12 pieces I couldn't keep to myself. The palette of navy, bright yellow and cream is one I've seen before but it's a more interesting take on Riviera style. I don't think there's anything wrong with reinforcing brand identity and sticking to a chic look that you're known for and that's what GANT do well.

More yellow with this cute sundress. I realised recently that I was getting older when I found myself moaning that some brand's seem to only sell the shortest of dresses. This one is a great length for summer, short but not bottom-skimming. It would look great with a white tailored jacket.

I'm not so keen on the styling of this outfit, but I do love the top. At first glance it's very plain and demure, but the little holes will show just a glimpse of flesh for a subtle way to do sexy. A hot pink bra underneath would give it some edge.

I was surprised to see toggle details popping up in a spring collection as they are usually associated with winter duffle coats. That said, I quite liked the waffle hooded jumper as a relaxed evening cover up for spring. I'd buy a size bigger for extra-slouchy comfort.

Prints featured plenty of colour, including these more autumnal stripes and the striped garment in question was a straight fitting skirt. Brights were the order of the day though as we've come to expect from GANT. To complement, there was a Morraccan inspired collection too which was a lot softer in terms of colour with linens and cottons - perfect for holidays to Egypt and the like.

But my favourite pick from the new collection was the cute conversational prints on these brightly hued trousers. Seahorses = cute, cute, cute! I'd team the trousers with a fitted white shirt and pumps for preppy chic.
