Prints are another fashion trend that is everywhere in 2012. Designers are seeing just how crazy they can go with prints, and retailers love it. Topshop is sporting abstracts, Ann Taylor has black-and-white boxes, and Edun is going tribal. Plaids, patchwork, stripes and polka dots are also appearing on everything from T-shirts and flannel button downs to rain boots and ballet flats.

The great aspect of prints is you can go all-out -- wear a block pattern shift dress or floral sundress -- or simply add a few separates to spice up your wardrobe. A tribal patterned sleeveless top with your skinny jeans, a plaid jacket with solid-colored pants, or a striped T with capris are great ensembles. Or, just choose a printed handbag. With myriad prints out there this year, there is definitely something for everyone.
