Dress trends of 2012
Dresses that fit most occasions and weather are always popular. And some styles and prints are more sought after than others. Like lace dresses, dresses with floral prints, midi length dresses and sheath knit dresses that are trending now. And when they’re designed and tailored to fit, they’re the first ones you pick out when you want to feel well-dressed. Take a look at what’s new in 2012:
The fabric and fall is the key factor in any dress. When fabric and design meet to give you bold stripes, waves and zigzags in knit fabric, the dresses have to be Missoni. They’ve been around from the 1950’s and still going strong with eye catching designs and slim silhouettes. A flattering fit is always evergreen and attractive.
The Missoni zigzag knit fitted dress with fur-trim gilet in a long vest style is a classic design with modern appeal. Zigzag knit has been a Missoni favorite and the trendy fit with deep V-neckline offers a figure-flattering fit. And it comes with a stylish fur-trimmed gilet. Another deceptively simple Missoni knit dress comes with asymmetrical seams that rely on the pointelle knitting cut of the dress to emerge a real knockout. The short dress offers a shapely silhouette with short sleeves.
Sheath dresses have been around since the 1920’s but were made more popular in the 60’s when Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy made them their signature dresses. And they’re still going strong. The Ballet neck dress is your classic sheath. It’s both sophisticated and flirty to make it instantly appealing. This is your pull-out-whenever-you-need-to-make-a-statement dress.
Another must-have black sheath in your wardrobe is the Piazza Sempione long-sleeve dress. The hemline comes up to the knee and the black knit has tonal leather appliqués with ruched details on the paneled front and a V-neckline. A Piazza Sempione dress has always prided itself on its luxurious fabric and attention to detail that makes every dress a classic.
