Best of 2012: Most Talked-About (and Worn) Trend

Among the most talked-about (and worn) trends in 2012 were cap-toe pumps, peplum, wedge sneakers, mixed prints, and wedge sneakers. Cap-toe pumps gained popularity because they provide a fresh take on the classic pump, while wedge sneakers offered up a cool twist on comfort. There was not one fashion-forward street styler that didn't bust out a pair of Isabel Marant's funky-chic sneakers this year. And on the other end of the spectrum, peplum tops, dresses, and skirts swept the fashion and celebrity world, thanks to the peplum's girlie charm, and the fit-and-flare shape paid homage to a more retro-era sensibility. Last but not least, mixing two or more loud prints — polka dots, stripes, florals, geometrics, you name it — made for many fun styling moments throughout the year. Out of all five trends, which do you think was the most prevalent in 2012? Decide below.
