TREND ALERT! Wine and Dine in BURGUNDY this FALL!

Spotted all over the Fall runways, this sexy hue is the best way to update an outfit this fall. Add a wine colored bag or shoe, or spice up your look with intense Bordeaux lips. Burgundy is the new neutral and can even be worn from head-to-toe without being considered too much. Its intense color provides for a chic, edgy, and versatile look, and can even be paired nicely with many colors. Burgundy is a rich, luxurious color, and is a nice medium between stark red and banal black.

Fall 2012 Color Story

So glad to see that there will so much color for this fall! As we saw in my Fall 2012 Fashion Round Up post, bold colors are here to stay. From neon fur pieces to geometric color blocking, the fall runways were beaming with color. Also, Tangerine Tango makes a return and we are not complaining. I’ve had so much filling my closet with this hue, whether it is statement shoes, fun accessories, or colorful dresses, tangerine tango just brightens up every look. From brights and bolds, to soft and pastel, this skillful palette is a success because it has a little bit of everything for everyone. The key is to mix, match, and contrast! I would love to pair Ultramarine Green with Titanium, and Tangerine Tango with French Toast.

It’s all about experimenting and having fun this fall!

Fashion Week Trends – Fall Fashion 2012 Round Up!

From the runways in New York to London to Milan and now even in Paris! – Fall 2012 has some clear trends and we’re loving each and every bit of it!

Check it out!

Almost every designer rocked luxury fur pieces on the runway this season. From solid, to neon, to ombre – fur was everywhere to be seen. I’ll be sure to get my hands on a fab neon faux fur jacket come this fall!

I absolutely love seeing color and fun prints on the runway. Although various designers did stick to a more muted and dark palette, we are thankful to designers such as Diane Von Furstenburg who never seem to disappoint us when we’re looking for those bold pops in a collection.

Although I don’t feel like the boxy look is a flattering silhouette, this trend seems to be a reoccurring theme on the runway. However, the boxy jacket definitely adds a little more structure and masculinity to the look which i do like.

Can we say hot? I am absolutely loving these provocative looks. The higher the slit, and more the cutouts, the bigger the statement on the runway. This fall we will definitely be seeing looks inspired by this trend!

I am definitely a sucker for gloves. I am so obsessed with the arm length leather gloves that I would love to embrace the look pronto! It definitely adds a little edge to each look and almost every designer worked the glove look in to their collection. Balenciaga’s cobalt blue glove is to die for!

Clearly the peplum silhouette is here to stay. We are seeing the trend all over right now for spring and I am glad to see it making a return in the fall. Lanvin’s collection embraced the peplum trend to the max with so many different variations on this look. Love this look!

And then there are the fabulous gowns that we all die for. We saw so much tulle for this fall juxtaposed with voluminous silhouettes. Tulle is such a fabric that adds a whimsical appeal to every look. I cannot wait to see looks inspired by this trend in stores for fall.
