hellllo lovers! first off thank you so much to everyone who linked up yesterday for the 1st click a pic challenge! I really appreciate all the support! So today we're gonna forget that its summer & we're all dying of heat & talk about my favorite time of the year - FALL
But besides all of that i LOVE fall clothes...the sweaters, boots, scarfs, jackets...fall shopping is my favorite but its defiantly something that is hard to do while its 90 degrees out & you're shopping trying on sweaters & pants while sweat drips down your face....just me?...ok moving on...still, I will never understand why the stores find it necessary to start putting out fall clothes in July, it can be hard for people to get in the fall mindset...most are still buying swim suits & maxi dresses.....even weirder do you know they already are buying for Summer 2013?! Crazy right?!
According to Harpers Bazaar this fall 2012 you will see a lot of clothes "with a retro mix of florals & lace, knit tweeds & yes, shawls making the sartorial cut. Chic sportsmanship will be of importance as well, especially when channeling the great outdoors or reveling in the new take on military......fur accents & elegant embroidery. And a host of cool options in the way of black leather or all-white means there will definitely be something for everyone. - via
So today I'm going to help you get into the fall mindset & give you a head start on what the trends are for this upcoming fall 2012 season. So let's get started!
The color that I am seeing everywhere for this year is Tangerine- its the hot color this fall so be sure to add something tangerine to your wardrobe this fall.
Polk-a-dots are another fun trend this fall...but not just in blouses, everywhere!
The colored pants trend is still in however the pants are transiting from bright neon colors to more deeper & darker colors, for example a dark red or dark purple.
Another trend I am seeing everywhere is embellishment on the shoes! To be honest I am not a huge fan of this trend, maybe with the right pair of shoes with a few studs but overall this trend is one I will not be partaking in...
However, as usual my favorite trend this fall is the short booties...or as the fashion world calls it the "crop"...i am beyond obsessed...& i already purchased my perfect pair...don't worry ill show you them soon...but I def recommend investing in a pair of crop booties & the best part is they have a variety to choose from!
Purses.....ahh do i love thee..so there are 2 kinds of purses I am seeing that are going to be big for Fall 2012...we've got the Satchel & the Mini Crossbody
Ok so far we've got tangerine something, dark colored pants, crop booties, a mini crossbody, some polk a dots & now lets round out the outfit with a fabulous jacket! And this season its all about leather & tweed!
So if you've noticed I don't talk much about styling accessories...its not that I don't wear jewelry its just I usually wear my staple pieces for everyday and then if I'm going somewhere it depends on what I'm wearing & ill fancy it up more with some accessories....but one trend I am seeing is 'oval' pieces, for example Tory Burch, Kate Spade & Marc by Marc all have the oval look this fall season
So what do you think of the "oval" look? I am loving all of Tory's jewelry right now its beyond fabulous!
Okay so that's my fall forecast for this season! Just to round it up here are some fall trends I will defiantly be taking part in -
tangerine, leather, polk a dots, crop booties, mini crossbody, dark skinnies & maybe I'll add some oval pieces to the wardrobe
What will you be adding to your wardrobe this fall? Are there any trends your not a fan of this season? What's your favorite trend for fall? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
