It was none other than Oscar Wilde who said that ‘Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.’
Not many people, especially the ones associated with the fashion industry, would agree with him when he calls fashion ugliness. Because it is quite the contrary if we think about it carefully. Everyone has their own definition and criterion for fashion. And they adopt it to look beautiful (not ugly) but yes, it does change with time, practically after every season.
The year 2012 has passed and the fashion trends for the New Year are all geared up to be ‘all the rage’. Looking at several fashion shows and magazine, the following trends will definitely be trending in the next few months.
