Fashion for A/W 2012 - part 2

Finally: part two of the A/W 2012 trend post! The fourth trend on my list is the gorgeous geek. This art house aesthete doesn't care if people think her outfits are crazy. To her, clothes are another art form and she isn't one for looking classic sexy, she wants something new ad unique. This trend is about head-to-toe retro prints with streamlined silhouettes, clashing combos and above all, the trouser suit. A trouser suit with a 70s graphic print is the perfect way to nail this trend. Add dip-dye hair and brogue shoes, glasses optional. I'd try this trend with maybe a printed bag rather than going crazy with a Prada trouser suit, see also Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton for more.

Next up: the girl samurai. This girl is a traveler by heart and loves all things Asian, specifically China, Korea, and Japan. She is fearless with colour and shape and can be seen wearing sharp, short, shiny dresses, oriental prints, and silk wrap tops. Stay true to the oriental style (this Halloween, be a geisha!), and you'll get a sleek, glamorous look like at Marni, Prada, and Dries van Noten. I would love a dress or shirt with a gorgeous oriental print in my closet!

My personal favourite is the ladylike trend, which is very feminine and super-chic with skirt suits, hostess dresses, lace, and pastel colours. The peplum works great with this trend (something I'll definitely be wearing more) as do voluminous wrap coats, long leather gloves and brooches. The perfect trend for when you want to feel elegant and gorgeous. Jil Sander, Valentino, Dior, and Chloé all showed there versions of the bourgeois lady.

The last trend is the country girl. She loves cosy knits and tweeds, earthy colours, and chunky layers with a skinny belt. Flat caps, the puffa, and ankle boots look great with milkmaid plaits and a rosy blush. See Burberry Prorsum, Michale Kors, and Mulberry for inspiration to a rural look.

My pick of this trend: a cosy knit sweater with a gorgeous bag.
