I officially vote 2012 the year of trends you are most likely to regret in ten years. Let’s review: Copious amounts of neon, check. Animal print skinny jeans, Check. Tie Dye Jeans, Check. High heeled sneakers, Check. I like a good trend as much as the next person, but A. These are last years trends, and B. It’s not a good sign when you want to sell your floral blazer midway through the season.
My reaction: BACK TO BASICS and clothes with good shapes. (Some of the floral print trousers have such nice shapes that I actually think they will look classic and feminine at any point in the future.) I like to mix basics with crazy stuff I collect, and have been digging through my archives lately and resurrecting a lot of stuff from 2003-5, I was around 20-22 then, and it was after I lost the freshman 15 (30) and the first time I had my own money. (Apparently 2006-2010 were not good to me fashion wise, because I hate most of the clothes from those years, or maybe I was just pregnant?) I post a lot of outfits on instagram HERE, in case you were wondering.
Anyway, for all Carrie’s crazy fashion moments, this one resonates with me. That could have been 20 years ago, or it could have been yesterday. And she looks killer. That body doesn’t hurt, either.
Thoughts? 2012 fashion, yea or nay? What’s your classic style ideal?
