Summer Guide 2012: A fashion photo shoot gone wild 

Boasting our favorite looks of summer 2012: tribal, pastels and florals

Taking cues from spring/summer 2012 fashion showcases, including those of Marni, Bottega Veneta, Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, this season's trends range from textured and travel-inspired to pretty and uber-girly. Check out photos from a recent shoot documenting our three favorite looks for the hot weather.

TRIBAL
Boasting ethnic touches accented with animal prints, exotic skins and safari themes.

PASTELS
Fashion's having a fling with soft and powdery hues.

FLORALS
Nothing says spring more than colorful, fragrant flowers.

All images styled by dupp&swat. (www.duppandswat.tumblr.com) Created in May 2010 by siblings Dion "dupp" Galloway and Davita "swatty" Galloway, dupp&swat is an all-inclusive agency, specializing in wardrobe-styling, costuming, fashion show production and event planning.
