New Year Fashion: Trends to watch out for
A new year means new trends, and as the dust settles on the Christmas sales, the fashion industry is already looking towards the styles that are going to become ubiquitous in 2012. As ever, Freemans are ahead of the curve with the launch of our exclusive Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Here’s a guide to what you should be wearing in the next 12 months.
It may be difficult to imagine now, with the early nights and relentless rain turning everything a depressing shade of grey, but tropical colours are going to be huge in 2012. Bright striking colours paired with lighter tones make a bold statement that really stands out. Take this new Oli Feather Print Woven Strap Maxi Dress, for example. It’s playful and flattering, but also suitable for a more elegant occasion due to the classic floor-length cut.
The 60s revival that characterised the latter half of 2011 shows no signs of dying out. However, while last year was all about pencil skirts and shift dresses, this year is going to be all about shorter skirts. This Closet Full-Skirt Belted Dress is an irresistible slice of retro chic. Pair it with some pointy stilettos and you’ve got yourself a timeless party outfit.
The Olympic Games are going to be the talking point of 2012, and that’s likely to be reflected in a huge surge of interest in stylish sportswear. If you want to join the sporty set, or simply make an effort to improve your physical fitness this year, check out our designer running shoes and sports jackets from leading brands such as Nike and Adidas.
We’re sure to be returning to all of these trends in greater detail as the year goes on, but in the meantime do have a look through our exclusive 2012 collection. What trends are you tipping for big things this year? Be sure to let us know…
