Fall Fashion 2011
I recently made a trip to New York to check out the Fall Fashion scene. Buckle up! This is what I found:
The new trend is Feathers: Feathers on clothes, shoes, jewelry. Anywhere you can apply a Hint of Color, Feathers are the way to go.
Long beautiful earrings, chunky cultured necklaces, hand cuff bracelets, pearls Pearls, PEARLS…shiny, simple, natural or gaudy. All will do.
Color – lots of deep rich dynamic colors are in. Burnt red-orange, Indigo blue, yellow, smokey grey, Jet black and more. Color blocking is also creative and it’s back – different shades of color from the same family on the same skirt of blouse.
Scarfs, swags, capes, crop sweaters are in. layer, Layer, LAYER: Nice sweater fabric on the outside, silk or shim-ice blouse on the inside. The more the merrier.
Skinny jeans and lots of leggings are still in. The fancier the better. The glitz and glamor ones are more dressy: Like orange, gold, green, electric blue, army green and indigo denim. These are very easy to do. Buy a pair of plain leggings, go to the fabric store and pick up some accessories such as buttons, eyelets, lace, cords, diamonds and put them on the leggings. A little bling goes a long way.
Bags and shoes – Tall fitted, riders style with buckles and zippers. Brown and natural or black leather. Different color shoes are in: nude, shiny or patent leather black, purple, blue. Rainbow colors are in, the more the better. If you can’t swing the heels, just get something comfortable for you.
I know 🙂 Lots of options!! Just go for it and pick the style that’s suitable for you!
