2012 Fashion Trends

3 Jan


Out with the old, in with the new as the saying goes.  A new year brings with it a renewed sense of being.  A clean slate, and another chance to change  the things we aren’t quite loving in our lives.

This is a great time to clean out your closets and makeup cabinets ladies, as colors, styles and trends change quicker than the blowing wind.  What made you ‘fashionable’ last year will have you looking ‘out of style’ this year.

So listen up- Fashion Guru Isaac Mizrahi stopped by the set of ABC’s Good Morning America to share his thoughts for what will take you to Chic in 2012.

Top 2012 Fashion Trends:

  • Bright and Bold Colors.  Leave the pastels and the blacks of yesterday, and turn to COLOR.  2012 is all about color, and lots of it.  Mix it, match it and wear it!  And it’s all about color blocking, so ditch the temptation for the same color skirt and blouse and mix it up with 2 bold colors that compliment each other.


  • Low Heals.  Ditch the heals ladies, flats scream STYLE this year.  You’ll no longer feel frumpy grabbing a pair of comfy flats, so embrace them while you can.  Isaac says you can wear them with a beautiful skirt and jacket combo, or pair them with a pair of jeans for a fun, casual look.


  • Dropped Waistline.  Embrace tops and dresses that have a dropped waistline.  He says this elongates and adds height to a shortened torso, and may hide a few flaws.  But, beware, if you’re one with a couple rolls around the middle, he warns that this is NOT the look for you.  It can accentuate those rolls, so make sure to embrace this style IF your waistline can handle it.
