Rewind! Top Trends of 2012

Happy New Year everybody! 2012 was a year filled with many new and fabulous fashion trends. I'm so excited to see what new styles are brought to the table in 2013!

1. In 2012 I've seen every shade of the rainbow styled in a pair of jeans.  Personally, this trend brings me right back to the middle school hallways seeing all the punk-rock kids wearing colored jeans, a band tee, and a pair of Chuck Taylors.  However, I do think if they are styled correctly they can be pulled off!  Some stores such as The Gap and American Eagle carried some softer, paler colored jeans this past spring which happened to be some of my favorites.

2. High-low hemlines were very popular this past spring and summer.  A change to the basic skirt and sundress made for a very chic and trendy look.  Dresses and skirts of this style could be found in a variety of stores and price ranges.  Bloomingdale's had beautiful dresses with this cut and yet I also saw skirts like this being sold in Target! Where ever you shopped in 2012 I'm more than sure you came across high-low styled clothing.

3. In the world of accessories I think the most popular trend this year was the statement necklace.  These big, bold, colorful necklaces dress up and spiced up any basic, boring, outfit.  In particular, the J.Crew "Bubble Necklace" got a lot of attention this year.  Once again necklaces of this style could be found in many different stores, boutiques, mall kiosks, and small online shops on Etsy.
