After scouring the runways last spring for the must have details for Fall 2012, it is time to figure out how to take the runway trends to real life. I am especially excited about these trends because generally it is easier to find affordable applications of detail trends and they are often easier to wear.
On to the runway!
Bold Lace:This trend was manifested cooly in evening gowns and playful suits, fabulous tops and even pants. Here dramatic black lace – always black, never white – is paired with bold colors like cobalt, neon green, and hot pink.
Shop: Yellow Dress/iPhone/Loafer/Blue Dress/Clutch/Pump/Tee/Skirt
Caught in the Net:The look features mixed materials of knits and leather and always with a fierce sensibility and in modern black and dark hues. Either way, I’m caught, hook, line and sinker.
Flight of Fancy: These are not your grandma’s frocks, or the feathers of Dynasty. The playful colors, fabrics and accessories but this trend in a flock of its own.

From Nature: Prints were reminiscent of live and wild coral, spewing lava, violent and raging wildfires, but were never so literal that the fashion became anything but art.
Pop Tart: In bold black and white and in knits, both structured and relaxed, this trend is an easy to own and wear idea for fall.

Shining Shoulders:Designers played with a lot of sequins, mesh and beading on the Fall 2012 runways, but no trend was more of a standout than the application on the shoulders.
Which of these trends from Fall 2012 are you most excited about?
