Top 100 Luxury Fashion Trends in 2012

From Fierce Motif Gems to Studded Ladylike Shoes

— January 19, 2013 — Luxury
Luxury fashion trends in 2012 showed that top designers and luxe brands aren't going anywhere -- even in the face of recession.

One look that caught the attention of many young fashionistas was the studded style. Top designers began with this trend, which then bled down to more affordable retail chains. From flats to high-top boots, shoes that added that extra bit of pizzazz to any outfit were must-haves this year.

Pricey jewelry inspired by nature was also at the top of many people's lists, as certain gold bracelets and rings showed a significant earthy feel.

Our Luxury Fashion Trend Report contains slide presentations and in-depth reading on this area to help supercharge specific business ideas.
