2012: Fashion in Review

Now that this year is coming to an end, we would like to make a special year on review blog post with 2012 biggest fashion trends. This is our very own perspective of the trends and, therefore, it's a subjective list.


Skinny Jeans


Skinny Jeans were a true mark of this year. We saw them is several flashy and neon colors, and also in more neutral colors. Basically skinny jeans came out from the 80s to make a stand for this year and they look stunning in several body types. Skinny jeans look particularly awesome in Straight and Hourglass body shapes and are a must have for this season. Don't have a pair? Check out these recommendations from our stylists:

Vintage Look Leather Bags


Leather was pretty much in fashion this year. Bags were looking kind of vintage and very "square" shaped. Whether black or brown, or even is some more colorful versions, a leather bag was the biggest fashion trend for bags this year. 


Peplum mania


Peplum was also pretty hot this year. Brands have peplum for every body shape. If you're pear shapped, you could wear a more simple version of peplum without giving you volume in your bottom half, like this Origami Pleat Peplum Dress, from AX Paris. If your body shape in inverted triangle, you could wear this Taina studded peplum top, or this Leopard Peplum Skirt from AX Paris to balance with your larger upper body. If you're an hourglass, you can pretty much wear anything, as long as you balance properly your upper body with you lower body without adding unnecessary volume to your shape.

Animal Prints


Oh yeah! Leopard print was a true trend this year. Whether in shoes, bags or other accessories and clothes, leopard print was everywhere and we love it! But we also know that prints should be worn cautiously... we don't want you to look like the jungle queen. Our advice to you: wear prints on your skinniest half. If you're pear shapped wear it on the top half, if you're an inverted triangle wear it on your bottom half. Prints draw attention and you don't want to draw attention to your widest half. Here are some leopard print items available at our style shop:


Riding Boots


Riding boots are this seasons trend on footwear, specially the leather ones. They look amazing with casual dresses, skinny jeans, bootcut jeans and pretty much almost everything. They are also very comfy and therefore al women should have a pair. Check out these Kissa Riding Boots, from Ravel available at our style shop.

So, these are the top trends we elected for this year in review. But tell us, what do you think was the best trend of 2012?
