Spring 2012 Fashion Trends

You may still be freezing in layers of wool, but fashion waits for no weather and Spring 2012 trends have hit the stores. Discover how to wear the trends this year with BodyWrap slimming underwear.

Peplum

Not only an excuse to use a good Scrabble word, this 40s trend returns to make you worry about your hips. Peplum refers to the extra fabric at the waist that adds a little flourish to skirts and dresses. If you dare to wear this trend, you’ll want to be sure your hips and thighs are reigned in. Consider the Cat Walk High Waist slimming legging to make peplum pretty. Here’s a sporty example of peplum from Alexander Wang.

Flapper Chic

Dropped waists and fringe look great on a night out. This look requires a gamine shape, which is best achieved with a shaping slip like The Slenderizer. This outfit from Marc Jacobs caught our eye.

Florals

Nothing says spring like a little flower power. Of course, if you are going all-over print, you’ll want to be shaped. Try an all-over bodyshaper like the the All-Inclusive for smooth lines. JCrew showed this cheerful number — notice the little touch of peplum?

Color Blocks

Dramatic blocks of color look sophisticated for spring. Notice the hint of orange on this Narciso Rodriguez number and you’re seeing yet another Spring 2012 trend. More forgiving than other trends, you can wear a lighter version of slimming underwear, like the Body Wrap Lites Cinch & Lift Cami.
