2012 Big screen-inspired styles
Need some inspiration for your 2012 wardrobe? Instead of the runway, draw inspiration from this year’s anticipated new movies. From adventure to fantasy, there’s a Hollywood-inspired look for nearly every occasion.
?Take a few style tips from the heroic Katniss of this spring's most anticipated movie, The Hunger Games. For a laid-back, casual look, don a pair of dark green skinny jeans (Gap, $31) with a simple t-shirt -- we like American Apparel's jersey tee in slate ($18). Complete your adventure-ready look with this super stylish and practical Michael Kors leather jacket (Bluefly, $238) and Steve Madden riding boots (DSW, $100).
Feel like your inner bad girl wants to break free? Imitate the sexy Catwoman from the upcoming Batman film, The Dark Knight Also Rises. For a naughty -- yet wearable -- look, we like this Victoria's Secret poplin corset in black ($24), paired with real or faux leather pants (Piperlime, $88). If you're not feeling quite that bold, skin hugging bottoms like Frankie B. Jeans' Carly Pant works well, too (RevolveClothing.com, $121). Complete the look with heeled, black leather boots (Chinese Laundry, $90).
Pretty, Pretty Princess
?Shine like the fairytale princess you are by donning a soft, romantic and whimsical outfit inspired by Giselle in Enchanted 2, rumored to make its appearance in 2012. We love this simple tulle dress from YesStyle.com ($28), paired with Juicy Couture's simply glam Clara Toe Cap Stone Flat ($250) and crown stud earrings ($40). On a chilly evening, slip on Steve Madden's belted Princess Coat (Alloy.com, $99). You'll look simply royal!
Bewitching Queen Bee?
Seeking a fairytale look that's a little less pretty and a little more vixen? Emulate Charlize Theron's style as Queen Ravenna in 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman. At your next cocktail party, don a chic gown such as David Meister's one-sleeve dress (Neiman Marcus, $390). Pile on the jewels like a true queen by wearing multiple gemstone rings (Kohl's, $38), chandelier earrings (Kohl's, $24) and a black bead necklace (Kohl's $32).
?If you long for fashion finds of years past, bring the roaring '20s to 2012 with a flapper-inspired look from The Great Gatbsy. For an updated version of the flapper dress, get dolled up in this chiffon dress from ASOS ($91), or the tiered fringe chemise at White House Black Market ($118). Accessorize with a flapper-inspired headband (Etsy, $50) and a long pearl (Kohl's, $20) or beaded necklace.
