Top Trends Of 2012

This year has been pretty hectic for me so far, and I apologise for letting my blog suffer for it a little bit, but things, including my posting frequency, should go back to normal by the end of January. Now, 2012 was a great year for fashion. For me it's the first year I've been properly integrated into the fashionverse, through starting this blog. This post is a little reminder of some of my favourite popular trends of the year!

1. Studs & Spikes

Adding a little bit of edgy detail to an outfit really took off last year. I've mentioned in previous posts how much I love studs and spikes, so I kind of hope this is a trend that sticks around for a while longer!

2. Baroque

Baroque print was a very popular choice for adding some sophisticated glamour to clothing both on the runway and in highstreet shops. I love it on dresses, it just adds a very royal, elegant touch.

3. Military

I've previously dedicated an entire post to this trend, which should speak volumes about how much I adore it. Camouflage print, khaki and combat boots were all in trend in 2012, and can add a bit of kickass chic to an outfit.

4. Oxblood

This dark red hue was THE colour of autumn 2012. I particularly remember there being a lot of love for Alexa Chung's head-to-toe oxblood look. This colour is classy, suits a lot of different skintones, and happens to goes well with pretty much every other trend on this list.

5. Black Leather

Leather has never really been out of style but in 2012 it was cropping up everywhere you can think of - including on shorts, on the sleeves of military-style jackets, and in the form of leather-look jeans. This is a really great trend because it goes with almost anything!

Are there any fashion trends of 2012 you loved that I've missed? What were your favourites?
Let's hope that this year will hold some exciting new fashion trends too.


  1. Oxblood and leathers are definitely my favorite trend. I'm not exactly a big fan of the baroque though. I find it rather too much for literally going anywhere, except the runway. But all in all I love the trends in 2012, nothing tacky or off-putting!

    The Dilly Chic

    1. I can see what you mean, I think it's probably not an everyday trend but it's still pretty gorgeous to look at.
      I agree about the lack of tackiness last year - but who knows, maybe in a couple of years time we'll look back and say "what were we thinking?!", fashion being the fickle mistress it is!

  2. Studs and spikes would probably be my favorite! Second would be baroque, I just love how classy it looks, too bad I don't have enough of it in my closet!


    1. Totally, I can't get enough of studs right now!

  3. You got like pretty much all of the things that were hot this year. Love the post!


  4. My favorite trends were the studs and spikes, oxblood and baroque <3

    Fashionably Sparkly

  5. military and leather were definitely at the top of my list.


  6. I love all these a/w trends... studs was definitely the most fierce!
