Trends for 2012

I've thought long and hard about this. I'm fairly confident that these will be three emerging trends this year:
1. Acid wash jeans will make a comeback, particularly among undergrads. Will they replace leggings? Don't be ridiculous, leggings are here to stay. That said, don't be surprised to see flocks of students on the Diag decked out in acid wash jeans come this fall. Next year, be on the look out for acid wash jeggings.

2. Gourmet mini doughnuts made from local ingredients will eclipse cupcakes. Let's be honest folks, in our hearts, we've always known that doughnuts are better than cupcakes. This year our beloved doughnuts will become the new "it" confection.

3. Boomers will become a punch line. If you need an example of what I mean, check out this clip from Community.


  1. Spot On - but finite combinatorial analysis predicts - Boomers in jeggings ironically eating mini doughnuts.

  2. Jessie Stoolman was ahead of the acid wash trend, with her red acid wash jeans during MDW11. She's so stylin'.

  3. @Aubrey, what can I say? The young Ms. Stoolman is a fashion innovator.
