Fashion Trends on Tubular Tuesday

It wasn’t long ago that we didn’t even know who Frances Bean Cobain was, other than that she was Courtney Love‘s daughter. Turns out that she has a gorgeous, almost timeless beauty… well, that is what recent internet frenzy photos have shown us. Either she’s stunning or she found the best photographer on the planet. Or both!

Frances has a working in black and white that would humble even the hottest calendar pin-up girl. So she’s covered in tattoos and smoking while looking completely strung out… Her father was Kurt Cobain after all,  she wasn’t going to be winning any “clean living” awards. The naughtiness actually seems to work for her. And us.

Haunting and heated, we are dazzled by Frances’ photos and we aren’t surprised she is already being called the “it girl”. If Frances has any obstacles at all, they might be summed up in one word, “mom”. Courtney is already chiming in and cashing in on Frances attention, let’s hope she handles the future with some decorum and tact. Come on Courtney, you can do it!

Here’s the question, will this last or is Frances a splash in a hot pan? What do you think. Here’s the photos, you tell us!

2012 Fashion Trends: Oriental Prints, Fur Trims and Short Hems Coming Soon!

Fashion Trends of 2012:

Expect to see prints of the Orient, Lace and Fur Trimming similar to the style of the 1920’s, and Mod Infused Early ’60s Hemlines

Thanks to great resources like Fashionising.com, getting a heads up on the next years fashion trends is within reach. While it’s still a bit early to predict what significantly different changes will take off with a fluster and what trends will fall as complete blunders in 2012, enough information is available to (at the very least). help us prepare the best way possible.

I can only hope that the biker-chic style that was so eminent in the stylings of 2011 remains steadfast as the year turns, as I still have to purchase both my motorcycle boots and jacket.  Of these two things… I have been virtual window shopping for the entirety of 2011.

Philipp Plein Jacket - A MUST HAVE !!!

Now, that said.. Some new trends, both in prints, fits and hems are rumored to be big hits in the upcoming year of 2012. Of these, expect to see an increase in the street style wearing of Komono‘s, oriental prints will be more common, though expected to be a bit more subtle and floral in use. Exotic silks and authentic vintage Kimono’s would be great pre-planning purchases to be a well-prepared fashionista for 2012!

The vintage fashions of this year certainly will not die off and disappear, but they will morph just a bit. From the sophisticated ’70s style we’ve seen so much of this year, with the soft flowing curls and slinky fabrics, expect a shift into the style of the early 1960’s. We’re talking true Mod Girl stuff here, Peter pan collars, short hems, mod hair styles and the Twiggy fashioned eyeliner may be sneaking it’s way back into the fashion forefront.

This year has already opened itself up to many 1930’s inspired fashions, a trend heightened with the release of the Motion Picture, ‘Water for Elephants.’ For both Men and Women, there has been a throw-back to old-fashioned baseball caps, and early styled lace accented dressings for ladies. With the ‘Great Gatsby’ Film expected to be released in 2012, the same will be seen in relation to 1920’s Flapper Fashion.

Avoid costume like ensembles, as these will be easy to spot and difficult to avoid with an expected over-indulged availability of short black wigs and overdone Flapper dresses. Keep this classic trend modern by introducing the ’20s presence in your style in a minimalistic way. Wide-leg trousers and subtle fur trims are great ways to achieve this style without going overboard.

The Chanel 'Le Boy' (A MUST HAVE for 2012!)

The Chanel ‘Le Boy’ is the ultimate glamour bag, with the classic golden braided strap, and intricate lettered perfection of ‘CHANEL’ stitched along the bag’s wide end, these little puppies will be booming in popularity… I want the red one, bad. Already. 🙂

So, there you have it. A few fashion predictors to help you ease your way into a fashionable 2012 from start to finish. Now, we’ll get to what’s pressing currently, which is the preparation for bathing suit season, of course! Get ready for high waists, retro cuts and prints, the return of the one-piece (with a twist), and the early signs of the 1990’s fashion comebacks…
