DailyCandy is excited to see how runway looks translate to real life trends. It may just be February, but the looks seen on the catwalk back in September for spring/summer 2012 are just now making their way into stores. Daily Candy's Lauren Lumsden showed of their fave trends that anyone can pull off AND that you can go buy today.

1. First and foremost, bright colors! But not just your standard spring brights, but specifically bright colors being worn with other bright colors, aka color blocking. You could see it last spring, but this year it's ubiquitous -- in clothing and accessories. One store that's done extremely well with it: J.Crew.SEEN AT: DVF, Celine, Hermes, Chloe

2. Peplums are another fun trend to try. They may look a little tricky, but who doesn't want a little extra ruffly fabric around their mid-section? We found this great, wearable example at H&M for just $30.SEEN AT: Givenchy, Jason Wu, Rodarte, Versace

3. Metallics are a go-to this season, and I can't think of one designer that didn't have them on their runways. Don't worry: You won't look like a tin man straight out of Studio 54. Stores like Zara have toned it down by making pieces with a subtle glimmer.SEEN AT: Ferragamo, Giles, Cynthia Rowley, Emanual Ungaro

4. Stripes aren't just for French sailors. I guarantee that you will see horizontal, vertical, diagonal, etc. stripes in every store you go into during your spring shopping sprees. We like this wear-everywhere piece from Madewell.SEEN AT: Tracy Reese, Proenza Schouler, Sonia Rykiel, Tory Burch

5. And, of course, there are trends that have not yet made it into stores. The one we're not totally surprised about: Fringe. It's a look that's not for the faint of heart. If you wear it, it will get noticed and mentioned - and sometimes you just don't want that.SEEN AT: Oscar de la Renta, Isabel Marant, Balmain, Tory Burch
