Goodbye 2012, welcome 2013! And what better way to say goodbye than sharing our best moments of the year, right?
I think we have nothing to complain about, and yet a lot to be thankful for: the year brought forth some spectacular retro trends, but still surprising us at every turn. I decided to share today the top 8 styles that most trended in 2012 (:
Beautiful is never old. This year, retro style was everywhere. Singers Rihanna and Katy Perry were currently putting this look on. We had Kim Kardashian wearing a cropped design: A high waisted skirt with a cropped top. Just be careful when choosing the top, you have to know your body type and pick the right one!
Who thought fashion would get so comfy? This year, sneakers with embedded heels were a huge hit! This trend spread so fast and I became a #1 fan in no time (: These sneakers are a girl’s best friend to go to college, shopping.. for those places where you have a lot of walking to do, but want to do it with style (and the extra heels we girls love so much).
How to express the veneration for this trend? I do not have enough words! Printed pants give so much joy and style for the production. You put one on and this is it; whatever you wear with it goes perfectly well! A simple white shirt and flats, for example, will be enough to leave you styling and ready to go! Printed pants can be worn to go to work, college, lunch with your friends.. and if you wanna make this look work for a classier ambient just bet on a neutral color pair of high heels and some jewelry, voila!
Well, well, sheer skirts: per-fec-tion. This trend came to stay! Believe me, it is enough said that this skirt will make you move heads while you walk. It is pure class, style, feminism, and grace. While many people think that long skirts only dress well with heels, this is not true. The sheer skirt is an easy-going piece; it depends on what you want it to do for you! If you are going for a walk on the beach or an early brunch, just throw some flats and a chain bag: nothing will beat this look.
I mentioned in my last article how a flashing colored necklace can change your outfit completely; well, this trend ruled 2012! We did not have to worry about the necklace being too big, on the contrary, it would only make it better.
My favorite of all times: lace. Lace dress, lace shirt, lace head-band, lace everything! This fabulous material is complete class and charm.. and designer Elie Saab showed us his passion for the fabric as well, designing almost every dress in his Pronovia Bridal Collection in a lace style.
These amazing envelope bags trended this year like never before. A key wardrobe piece, a clutch can be worn with any look, be it casual or a little more chic. Check my previous article on clutches for some inspirations here.
Spikes and Studs
Last but not least, spikes and studs. When is too much of something a little too much? You decide! This year, this trend was everywhere. I cannot name one collection where I didn’t see at least some spikes on the pocket of a jacket, not to mention the shoe fever! This style is gorgeous and I love it.. If your outfit is a little more simple you can bet on a pair of presence shoes, but if the production is already very much alive, you may wanna wear something a bit more discrete.
So, which one was your favorite 2012 trend?
happy new year (: beijo!
