Autumn's Fashion Trends

Autumn is just around the corner but don't be frighten! Just because it's a new season, don't think you have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe, we wish though! I've done my hard thorough research (poor me) and have collected the best and newest fall trends. I also mentioned a couple of classics like plaid and crushed velvet, who doesn't love a good oldie anyways?

The colors of Fall 2012 are: red, oxblood (aka dark maroon), purple, tangerine tango, pale gray, cream, and white. Pantone also has out their list of seasonal color trends. Have a look!




A couple of trends from the spring and summer have made its way over to Fall with only slight color adjustment. Color blocking and wild prints are still here to stay (yay!). The colors are still fresh and bright but dialed down (notice no neon but more rustic and jeweled tones).

The wild prints will be around for a long time and this fall they've gone all Pleasantville on us and jumped into black and white!  But don't worry, the fun printed pants and leggings also appear in color for those who just can't part.

The LBD went through it's own transformation. Now flared with a full skirt and a nipped waist, it  brings on the joyful '50s feel and shows off the woman's figure.

LBD's other transformation is of color! With the IT color being oxblood it makes sense to switch things up. Now introducing the LRD, do you like?

The old rule of no white after Labor Day is old for a reason, this year wear white proud! White on white was huge on the Autumn 2012 runways so give it a try! However, if sporting pure white after Labor Day gives you the heebie-jeebies, no problem, cream is here to save the day! Think of cream as the autumn-fied version of white.

Soft pale grey is a wonderful color for fall because it pairs up nicely with red, purple, rustic orange, and the infamous plaid designs. It's a soft palate for the touches of rich and bold color.

Collars are the IT accessory this fall. They are an amazing addition to any top or dress. You can purchase a top or dress with a built in collar or just buy the collar to give your older pieces a fresh new look. They can be worn like a necklace which is easy peasy. Bejeweled collars give any outfit an extra level of glam while printed collars create an edgy and fun look.

Handbags are an essential part to every outfit, they can break or make the look so it's important to not ignore your trusty purse. Look for a purse that's simple but bold in color. Pick a shade from the colors of Fall 2012, like oxblood, royal purple, or pale gray. To add an extra dose of awesome-ness, try tying a scarf around the bag's handle.

 I can't finish the fall 2012's trends post without mentioning the classics. These three trends have become symbols for autumn: plaid, crushed velvet in dark jeweled tones, and knee high boots.You can't go wrong with a classic.
