I predict tons of fabulousness with a touch of romantic bohemia. I'm thinking dusty pinks, exhuberant-baroque like jewelry, lace, man tailored silhouettes matched with billowy layers and high sheen fabrics. What's great about these trends is that you probably own pieces already!
Fall Fashion Trends '12 by fleurluxe featuring slim fit pants
A. Sequins. I don't recommend pulling out your sequins dresses just yet but, its never too early to add some glitz to your wardrobe. Sequins is great in that it can make a simple t-shirt a statement piece. I recommend sticking with rose/dusty gold, bronze, olive, or pewter sequins to avoid looking like a casino loving grandma.
B. Printed, Cropped Trousers. I'm soooo excited about new pants. These are great for showcasing fabulous shoes and keeping an outfit fun. If you are bottom heavy, look for a print that isn't too busy and that elongates you. What I love about these is that you can take them day to night easily. For day: Pair with ballet flats, t-shirt, and scarf. For night: Switch out the flats for some fun heels, a sheer blouse, and chunky necklace.
C. Layered Jewelry. Own tons of jewelry you never wear? Where it all at once. This brings any accessory collection back to life. Right now, string bracelets are all the rage and they will continue to be. If you want a more mature look, go for bracelets that have subtle color combos and dainty ornaments. Also, mix and match them with chunkier pieces you already own... the juxtaposition will give you a fun edge.
D. Collar Necklaces. Collars aren't only for pets. I love these necklaces... talk about fancy! Add some eccentricity to a sexy dress or even wear it under a collar of a button up!
E. Leather skirt. I don't own one but I feel the need to badly. It can be a little intimidating... I've been there but its such a staple piece. Imagine it paired with your favorite leggings and sweater or even with a lace top! This can be a very sophisticated piece that'll last years and years.
F. Loafer Heels. I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of loafer heels but these new designs are gorgeous. They no longer look like wannabe sexy librarian shoes. They are fashion forward and romantic. Pair those up with cuffed skinny jeans and blazer and you'll be good to go.
