Have you ever mixed royal blue, electric purple and dark brown? Or what about bright mustard, khaki and tomato red? The Spring 2012 runways were full of eye popping color combinations all of which we find so refreshing and fun! These new patterns are great templates for color blocking and for creating everyday staples. Read on to see them all…

— Beautiful and comfortable, and totally irresistible in a bold color: V-neck dress.

— Ready for the office with a subtle burst of color: Top with draped neckline paired with the plum hued satin trousers.

— Warm, classic, flattering: A flared A-line coat paired with gem tones looks classy and chic.

— Wake up call: A brightly hued pencil skirt is sassy + sophisticated.

— Also check out a classic zip-up jacket, not pictured above.

    I ADORE the bright mix of colors found this year! I inherited a bunch of Burda magazine from my mom that dated back to the 80s and they had such fabulous color mixes. I’m thrilled color is back.

    Plus size, mini size, or all the ranges in the middle, go color go! :D

    I just wish I could find more of the plus patterns on this site, shame considering how hard it is to find the plus magizine…

    i still wish burda would up-size more of their patterns that they already have, there are many that would be wonderful for plus-size figures. the wrap dress and the a-line skirt shown the other day, for example, would be really great. scaling up a pattern isn’t that difficult, i do it myself, but it is frustrating to pay for a pattern and then still have to do lots more work to get it to the right size.
