Fashion Forward into 2012

What’s going to be the way forward when it comes to stocking up our wardrobes in 2012? Although we’ve already had catwalk reports on the September Fashion Weeks to inspire spring and summer trends for 2012, most mere mortals need a little help when it comes to translating the catwalk designs into a capsule wardrobe.

There are a few key trends already emerging, and you’ll see these peeking out from behind the January sale rails very soon

CUT AWAYStrada from DUO

Whether it’s sheer panelling or cut away fabric, when it comes to SS12 we’re showing off glimpses of the female figure – so if you want to jump on the trend wagon but you’re not so sure about whether you really fancy revealing your post-Christmas waist line, cut away accessories could be the answer. All you need to do is make sure that you keep those toes in prime-pedicure condition. DUO have some great examples of the cutaway trend:


Inspired by the icons of country style, the Middletons have laid the tweed path for the rest of us to dabble in heritage attire. Tweak tradition by raising the hemline and injecting bright colours to pull off a modern take on country chic.


Yes, we know, that old chestnut, but in 2012 fashion isn’t just about looking great, it’s about doing good too. New loungewear label, FROM Clothing, source all their materials ethically and with the environment in mind.

Garments are manufactured in Portugal using ethically sourced materials. Organic cottons, certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), and Lenzing Tencel blends provide warmth, stretch and comfort. Breathable fabrics are cut to flatter, ensuring ease of movement. Funnel necklines and hoods provide luxe touches and a neutral palette gives a flexible, stylish look.
