Hello my dears, I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season…a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!

Can’t know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been, right? So it’s only right that we recap the best trends of 2012. 2012 was full of great fashion and well, I’m no authority, but these are my top 5 favorite trends of 2012!

AZTEC

Aztec was big during the spring and summer months of 2012, the print was funky, fresh, and inspiring!

FLOWY SKIRTS

I very much enjoyed wearing flowy skirts all throughout the year of 2012. They are so relaxed and easily chic, can’t help but love ’em!

BURGUNDY

So complementary to every skin tone. Its the perfect Fall/Winter color and it was all the rage in the Fall/Winter 2012 season. Between makeup and clothes, I know I wore this one OUT, y’all!

STILETTO NAILS

Nail shape was big during 2012, specifically the stiletto nail. I didn’t really like the super exaggerated pointy ones, but the rounded slightly more natural looking stiletto nail was feminine perfection if you ask me.

STATEMENT NECKLACES & COLLARS

Looking to add instant jazz to any outfit? A statement necklace or collar will easily do the trick. That was definitely a trick I used frequently in 2012.

Trendspotting : Retro Swimwear

Doesn’t Marilyn look beautiful? Gotta Love Miss Monroe. And the style of swimsuits that were popular in her hay-day are making a major comeback in Summer 2012. Many designers are creating fashionable one pieces cut similar to the one she is wearing while others immolate the style in bikinis by using bandeau style halter bikini tops and high-waisted bottoms. The retro style is very complimentary to a curvy shape, accentuating curves without making them look bulbous or slutty and the extra fabric that comes in a swimsuit style like this does well to hide any major problem areas you might have. Retro style swimsuits are very chic and trendy right now and they are a great way to look fab while being comfortable in your own skin at the beach this season. Here are a couple of cute ones I’ve found.
