Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

As 2012 draws to a close, we're surveying our friends in the fashion industry about the year's biggest news stories and most exciting developments. Yesterday we looked at the best newcomers in the biz, as well as fashion trucks. Today, we are trying to capture fashion in one word. Readers, let us know what you think in the comments.

Q: Pick one adjective to best describe 2012 fashion in Boston.

Lindsey Canant, Junior Copywriter at Joss and Main: Underestimated.

Amanda Knorr, Spreedia founder: Collegiate.

Renata Certo-Ware, Scorpion Disco and freelance fashion writer/stylist: Prints! Lots of 'em. Bold, and mixed, fearlessly.

Lisa Pierpont, BOLDFACERS founder: Aspiring.

Liana Krupp, communications consultant and New Brahmin founder: Loquacious.

Christina Pierce, Christina K. Pierce Boutique Fashion Agency owner: Average.

Lani Zervas, Mon Petit Chou Chou blogger: Thriving. There is a great core of fashionable people here, trying every day, to buck the moniker GQ unfairly saddled us with.

Heather White, Lifestyle Marketing at PLNDR: Typical and iconoclastic at the same time.
