Here are the top five fashion picks that can still work its way to fashion dominance for 2012:
Wide-legged pants are fashion chameleons that can be worn from summer to spring.

Also, it is flexible because it can be made into any color or pattern depending on the mood or the personality of the person who will wear the item. 2012 will still embrace these wide-legged pants so better keep them inside your closet.
The high-slit dress first sky-rocketed to success during the nineties. While it is a fact that fashion trends come back every now and then, the high-slit dress can still be worn on 2012 and it will still be a fab find even after its first renaissance last 2011. It will still be the eye-catcher on every evening party, runway show and even corporate events when matched with a sheer top. Slip on a dress with a high slit that flaunts long legs and you will never be in the corner again.
Whoever said that tuxedos are just for men must have not seen the arrival of this classic piece in the twentieth century. Tuxedo jackets are one of those pieces for women that never fail to sport an impression of androgyny. For women who want to channel a more intense, high-fashion and edgy look, the tuxedo jacket is the way to go.
Tops and dresses with baby collars extend its stay in the fashion limelight as it will be another “happening” item in 2012’s fashion. Popularized by Louis Vuitton, baby-collared tops will enter a more serious revolution with candy colors and playful prints to sport that sweet sixties look.
There was a time in fashion when stilettos were all the women’s rave. Though a foot-killer, stilettos were the must-haves for women because of two things: they are pretty to look at and they give the benefit of additional height to women. Beautiful on the feet but monster on the feel, stilettos scooted a little space to give way to the arrival of platform heels and wedges. These heels are of towering height but are not very painful to wear because of the added support heel on the toes. Now, looking taller does not need to be painful with platform wedges and heels. And yes, they are here to stay for 2012 and beyond.
