Fall for Fashion: Fall 2012 Trends
Fall is here, and with new seasons come new fashion statements. What’ s the trends THIS fall you ask? The trendiest of people are wearing prints, collars, and sweaters and guess what, color blocking is STILL trending (You know I couldn’t be happier). Don’t know how to incorporate these trends into your wardrobe. Don’t worry ladies, I got you!
I’ve already discussed prints in an entire article. Missed that one? Read it HERE. As I stated in that article, some people are afraid of prints and stay far away from them, but prints don’t have to be anything drastic. Leopard is some of the “safer” prints and you can’t go wrong with pairing a leopard top with some dark wash jeans or black leggings/jeggings. Wear this look to the club or to dinner with the girls. It’s truly a versatile look.
Collar necklaces are the cutest accessories on the planet, well maybe not on the planet, but they are pretty adorable. The collar of this dress is not detachable, but it does look like a collar necklace none the less. You can wear collar necklaces with t-shirts, dresses, button downs, etc. I haven’t bought one yet, but I do intend to because they add that flava’ to any outfit. Ugh, look at how beautiful those flats are as well.
I’m not telling you to ditch your blazers, but it seems like everyone is especially wearing sweaters this fall. I suggest you purchase some sweaters in cool prints (yes, some Bill Cosby sweaters), or with cute pictures like the one styled above. Jeffrey Campbell Litas have become a classic shoe and look amazing when paired with a leather skater skirt. This outfit is so cute, yet edgy!
You’ll soon discover that oxblood is a VERY popular color this fall! Also, color blocking is back again for YET another season. You can “tame” color blocking by using blacks and browns as I have done, but you can go all out and wear a multitude of different colors. Start simple and then add colors because one color too many, and its tacky-central. Read up on color blocking if you want to learn more about this trend.
