If you want to turn heads with a unique, subtle and totally in-step piece, stay tuned to Life & Style for our hawk's eye pick-up on unique trends for 2012.
Unique trend #1, especially for spring/summer
The midriff is back!
The demure 40’s/50’s style presented itself in almost every designers’ collection: a little sliver of skin between the high-waste and a choli-like top that covers down to the ribs.
Occasionally the full torso was boldly exposed down the runway, belly button and all, although bigger-name designers stuck with the more modest version.
Now at what time was that abs class?
Interestingly, the midriff made its first appearance in bikinis in 1946, since fabric was rationed during World War II.
