Fabulous Fall Trends

Written by Maria-Soledad Nelson. Posted in Shopping

Do you frequently feel that you are missing that perfect finishing touch to your outfits?  Not sure which handbag, jewelry or scarf is right for you?  If so, you are not alone.  Read on to find how the right accessories can update and change the look of any outfit.  

Maria Soledad-NelsonIf you are like me, you are ready to leap into fall fashion. Fall looks are about adding layers, infusing rich hues and changing your footwear to more weather-appropriate options.
Not sure which hot trends are right for you?  Well, the good news is that there are classy ways to incorporate most any trend into your look, keeping it fresh and updated. Of course, and as I guide all of my clients, you have to take into account your body type, personal colors and style in everything you wear.

Here is a list of my top 5 favorite, wearable trends:

Boots: Whether you wear high boots or low boots, there really is something for everyone. Booties are really trending and look hip paired with a dress and tights.

Brooches: Vintage and modern come together. Make this your statement piece and embellish a blazer, dress or scarf with a jewel-tone brooch.

Denim: Bye Bye blues (well, you can still hang on to them). But have some fun and try a coated, jewel tone or ones with print.  It is always a good idea to ensure that you have the PERFECT fit on your jeans.

Leather Looks:  In addition to leather jackets, many dresses and tops are including leather trims which create an edgy vibe to your ensemble.

Pretty Peplum: This ladylike silhouette continues to trend. Perhaps the peplum is what you need to jazz up your business attire.

Of course you have to take color into account.  Pantone’s 2012 Fall Color Picks include several warm and some cool colors. Tangerine Tango remains the color of the year, Olympian Blue is very lively and Ultramarine Green shows sophistication. Replace your black neutrals with the French Roast (dark brown) or Titanium (gray) neutrals for a sophisticated look.

Is there a trend for you or do you avoid them? I can help you define and update your style and dress in a way that brings out the true you.
