New York, NY, United States (AHN) – Feminine and elegant accessories and clothes are the newest trend for 2012 as demure dressing returns.
Marc Jacobs started the trend for the “retro demure lady look” from the 40s and 50s, and others are following suit.
The newest styles are sure to please your mother and grandmother, but they are definitely not vintage designs.
Featured will be boxy silhouettes, below the knee dresses and skirts, cardigans and retro plaids in modern looking fabrics.
Popping up in stores for Spring 2012 will be patent leather shoes, shoes adorned with bows, classic handbags with rope chain handles, tasteful hats, clutches, and pointed high-heeled shoes.
Dresses will sport prints in bold and bright colors, yet whites will also abound. Skirts will be pleated, trousers will be cropped and jacquard knits will be all the rage. Fabrics range from silk to cotton.
Last season’s lady was sexy, racy and dangerous. This season’s lady is destined to be sweet, sheepish and coy.
