Top 5 Trends of 2012
As the year draws to a close, 2013?s fashion trends will soon begin to emerge. But before we tackle those, we compile a round-up of the top 5 favorite style trends of 2012.
Here are the most memorable trends that debuted on runways, red carpets, editorial pages and in your closets!
Figure-flattering and festive without being costumey, the peplum look became a new standard for evening events and several daytime occasions as well. Narrow pencil skirts and skinny pants looked fresh again with this new detail in the mix.
If there was a trend to invest in this year, it was leather (real or faux). Statement-making leather clothing was all over the runway throughout 2012, not to mention draped on tons of celebs.
Need a surefire way to get noticed anywhere? Wear something bright! Really bright. Neon pieces cut in simple shapes were big news this year. The summer colors we knew and loved were bumped out by highlighter-infused wardrobe selections.
The unofficial color of the colder seasons is everywhere, lending a richness and excitement to the common faves--shades of black or gray.
Whether floral and scarf, Aztec and animal, swirls and dots and zigzags or cosmic and paint splash, 2012 never had a scarcity of prints.
