Gal trend forecast ♥

From checking the latest fashion mags and fall/winter collections of the big trends, I verdict some items to become really popular for fall/winter Gyaru wardrobe 2012... so I thought it would be fun sharing them with you! Let's see if my forecast will turn out to be right! ;D

Cat motives / Cat inspired fashion goods
 by Yumetenbo
 by GalStar
Potential: 90%
Seeing how many icon fashion brands are already sporting this trend, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a big deal in fall/winter Gal style 2012!
Cat's are everywhere - cat printed Tee's, cat ear hat's and beanies, cat ear hairstyle, cat face shoes, cat printed thights... and the list goes on and on.
Not really my cup of tea, but I really cute to look at! ;D

Cat ear / Devil horn alice bands 
(mostly adorned with pearls and crystals)
by Yumetenbo
Potential: 75%
Totally fitting into the upcoming cat theme, this cat hairband is the the perfect accessory to go with cute styles ♥ Glavil does also take it's turn on this trend by sporting their absolute awesome devil horn hair accessory (which I personally like better then the cat ears).
However, it might be a bit hard to pull it off well. =/

Leather skirts
by Liz Lisa
Potential: 75%
I was really surprised to see this trend, especially since I never even considered combining leather x sweet styles. But as you can see, it is working pretty well! xD" (stupid me is stupid)
The leather skirts come mostly in fall/winter colors like bordeaux, brown, beige, dark green and black now. Sweet brands are mostly producing flared or pleated skirts, while mode labels prefer the classic look and rokku brands add studs and laces to their leather skirts.

Flared sleeve tops
by Skinny Lip
 Potential: 53%
I'm not 100% sure about this trend, but I see it pop up more and more often recently. 
I find the flared sleeves totally awesome and super cozy for fall/winter styles, hope to see more of it soon

Besides that, I can see a lot of "old" trends continueing. =)
Retro Girly style is still a big deal for the sweeter brands. Flag prints are still quite popular (especially the Union Jack), such as plateau heels. Beanies (of course also with cat ears. lol) will have their revival as soon as the temperature will drop, and leg fluffies/furry leg warmes are THE accessory for every Kuronba Gal. 

So much said, I'm excited to see which trends of my forecast will really become famous, haha. ;D
