Forever Chic Style aptly names 2012 "The Year of the Lady" in fashion. Apparel was simple, classic yet approachable, fun and stylish, while gracing magazines, social media and the lavish Hollywood award television shows. Here are the hot picks for 2012:
II. The Ladylike Suiting Phenomenon: The suit is authoritative, feminine and key ingredients in a woman's closet. The suit can be worn together or separately. Again, glorious Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge stole the show draped in eye beholding suiting all year long. The perfect solution to appearing formidable while remaining approachable. Or maybe it is the smile!
IV. Say Yes to the Jean Ensemble: Finally, sweats are gone, stored away or being worn just for working out. During this holiday season, women out shopping were wearing skinny dark denim jeans, with turtlenecks, overcoats and knee high boots with accessories. The result was polished, carefree and statement making.
VI. Bold Red Lips and Long Long Lashes: Lipstick made a comeback in shades of reds, deep wines and luscious pinks. The Emmy's and Oscars from 2012 began with Angelina Jolie cementing this captivating look. Complementing the darkly toned lips are long defining lashes from false lashes to gel enhanced. Bottom line - Makeup is a must and what fun makeup can be for one and all.
VII. Ready for the Heat - Ray-Ban Sunglasses: From jet setters, celebrities to beach goers, Ray-Ban's were planted firmly on the face from the young to old. High-tech performance and retro style, in silver or gold were and are stylishly timeless. Grab a pair and be hip for 2013.
