2012 Fashion: Retro to Dominate

As we bring 2011 to a close, I thought I’d write about what is predicted to be the hottest trend for 2012:  the return of the renaissance of the 1920s and 1950s!

While I blogged last week about Tangerine Orange being the chosen IT color of the year by Pantone, we’re also going to be seeing a mass return of pastels and candy colors like gold, coral, lilac, cream and silver (Alexander McQueen Summer 2012 show anyone?).

According to executive vice president of fashion and retail trend consultants Tobe Report, Catherine Mollering said consumers can expect to see “exotic safari looks, candy colors, flattering 50s-style dresses and touches from the 20s” next year.  We’re talking drop waists, waistcoats, and beaded chiffon dresses. 

Oh!  And don’t forget the cloche hats!  I think we also have the increased wave of British fashion obsession on Kate and Pippa Middleton to thank!

Want to see it in action?  Take a look at the highlights video form the Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 12 collection above!
