Fashion Trends of 2012, To Invest in NOW…


The emphasis here is on opulence. Keep an eye out for:

  • Exotic silks
  • Vintage kimonos
  • Oriental-inspired floral prints

1920s / Flapper

On the horizon courtesy of the upcoming The Great Gatsby film. Avoid anything too costumey. Beading and drop-waist frocks are all good, but for something even more unique and likely to be on-trend look for the more subtle 1920s fashion and 1930s inspirations:

Mod / 60s

Away from the 50s and early 60s prom style, look for things like:

  • Short hems, especially shift or sheath dresses, a-line and babydoll styles
  • Peter pan collars
  • Fur chubbys
  • Lace dresses, and
  • Pretty much anything that you might imagine on Jane Birkin or Jean Shrimpton

Naturally there’s one more key thing to remember: only make the purchase when the quality & fit are right. A vintage find is only as good as it is wearable, and any piece – on-trend or not – should still be worthy of your carefully curated wardrobe.
