Fashion refers to any mode of dressing that is popular during a particular time or in a particular place. Fashion is a style or a practice particularly in clothing, footwear, accessories, in makeup or even in body art (e.g pirecing, tattoo). Fashion changes from one period to another. It changes from one generation to another generation. Every person regardless of what gender follows fashion trends.
Among the two genders, the ladies are the most fashionable ones. Sometimes, ladies copy the fashion styles and the fashion looks from high profile people and actresses. Women especially the younger generation tend to look like their KPOP idols from Korea. The animal print fashion style of the Kardashian’s has also become a popular fashion trend by women these days. The media has made a great contribution on spreading fashion throughout the whole world. Now, fashion isn’t just spread in one country but is also spread throughout the world.
This 2012 has become a wild year for fashion. Fashion trends change so fast you wouldn’t even notice. Here’s a flash back on the fashion trends:
It started with skinny jeans. Then came different styles like the high-waisted trousers. The high-waisted trousers were famous in the 80s. I think this year, fashion is trying to revive the classics. Rompers are also in-trend this year. It gives you that stylish and comfy feel. Sportif pants are also in this year especially the acid washed sportif jeans. Slouchy shorts are also in. They are usually high-waisted but the part where you place the belt is usually at the lower waist part.
For the prints, the most famous one is the floral-printed bottoms and the animal-printed jeans. It varies from small to large prints. Bleached bottoms are also in this year. For that cowgirl feel, embellished jeans are perfect. Another style that’s in is the patch or tattered jeans and the metallic jeans.
For the skirt, the hip-hugging skirts are famous this days. Regardless of whether it’s an a-line cut or a pencil cut. Asymmetric skirts are also in trend this year. Usually you will see that the front side is short and the back part of the skirt is long.
Just like the bottoms, asymmetric-styled tops are everywhere. I think the reason why most ladies love this style is because it can blends well with different body sizes, whether they are fat or slim. It also blends well with any height, whether that lady is short or tall.
Long-sleeved tops are also part of the latest fashion trends. It gives the formal look to women. It can be a formal wear or a casual wear. See-through tops are also in. Ladies this 2012 also love to wear ethnic print tops.
This 2012, ladies are fond of the abstract accessories. They usually like long necklaces. The edgy accessories are also famous. You can see spiked accessories like necklaces, bracelets and headbands. The floral and animal-inspired accessories are also one of the top picks this year.
It has been a really wild year for fashion. Everyone is trying to make their own fashion statement. Others are just trying to be in. One advice would be is just to be yourself. Wear what makes you comfortable. Looking good isn’t just wearing what’s “in”. It also matters on how you wear it and how confident you are with what you are wearing, no matter what style it is.
