2012 Fall Fashion Trends on Trial: Head to Toe Print

2012 Fall Fashion Trends

[Warehouse]

Brace yourselves, Fashion Police Officers: this is not a drill. The outfit you see above really IS being touted as a “fall fashion trend”, and will no doubt soon be being described as “bang on trend” and “so edgy!” by the fashion press.

So, as you can see, this one’s all about print. And more print. And, you know, maybe this outfit could use a little more print, what do you think? Or are you so stunned by the assault on your retinas that you just CAN’T think? Too bad, if so: this fall we’re all going to be walking around in floral print trousers, worn with matching blazers, and possibly a contrasting shirt. And you don’t have to worry about matching those prints, either: mixed prints has been a fashion blogger thing for a while now, but this season the fashion world wants to see everyone at it, merrily throwing on florals with stripes and animal prints with… probably more florals, basically. So, what do we make of this: in other words…

Is it a crime of fashion?

We’d say yes. While we’re not adverse to a bit of floral print, and we don’t mind each of these items separately, you can get too much of a good thing, and we reckon this is it.

How to wear it?

Our advice? Don’t bother. This is one of those ones you’ll look back on in a few years time and think, “Oh, autumn of 2012! What were we thinking?” If you find yourself tempted though, you might want to start small, with EITHER the floral print trousers OR the blazer, say. That way you can dabble with this trend without completely dousing yourself in it: if you love it, you can always add more prints later if it turns out that head-to-toe-print is the thing that’s been missing in your life all this time.

What do you think of this fall fashion trend? Will you be wearing head-to-toe prints anytime soon?

    OK.. call me crazy. I actually like the 1st suit but the matching blouse has got to go. I can just see this as a dressy outfit for a BBQ at the boss’ house. Too cute.

    I’m so impressed by the floral outfit in picture one. The idea of matching a white top with a floral outfit makes a lot of sense, and she complemented the trend with white pumps. To me its okay
