Anything burgandy, which I love seems to be one of fall colours. Also love dark brown. There is lots of brown in many shades, but still reds, blacks, greys, greens. Much better color selection this fall than last year when where there was almost only black, red and olive greens.
The fashion mood is mix-and-match with girly looks such as ruffles, embroidery, fringe, sparkles, creative colors, playful patterns. This is a departure from hard-core sex appeal from seasons past. Satin is not just for evenings anymore...bring it into light during day by pairing a satin camisole with a fitted jacket or wear a satin skirt with a knitted cardigan. This fabric also looks great with denim. Bottom line, best way to wear it is to highlight just one piece: a little satin goes a long way. Best example - pink satin cami under a blazer.
Ponchos, capes and wraps continue to make news. There are lots of quirky tweeds, funky mohair and slinky jeans, shrunken tweed blazers worn with pleated mini-skirts or faded denims.The shrunken tweed blazer is height of cool...pair it with some faded denim, but push up sleeves or it may look a little too country. A black, velvet, bracelet- sleeved jacket looks chic with a simple camisole and jeans, or cropped cords and worn with a fabulous mohair poncho, a drape-necked sweater, or a flirty tweed skirt, skin-tight pencil skirt. Try a candy-pink, silk shell top, printed with miniature horses. Leaf and tweed corsages are dotted all over lapels and shoulders.
Layered Ts and sweaters have a definitely boyish bent. Snug tops and contrasting colors are in. Wear a button down shirt with untucked hem under a V-neck sweater or layer a long-sleeve T under a short sleeve tee. A blue Oxford shirt, a pair of beige chinos and a really classic trench reflect current trend.
Pants are more fitting now, so they feel more current. They are slimmer through thigh and waistlines are creeping back up...superlow jeans are out. Try something new like ankle crop pants with boots for a fresh take. Super skinny black pants and darker denim are cool - but without whiskering, or excessive creases, etc.Pants usually push out skirts, but not this season, when skirts are stylish for cool weather. In addition to miniskirts there are A-lines, knee-length or mid-calf skirts in everything from worn denim to crisp menswear. Legwear is back with everything from bright tights to fishnets covering up gams with skirts.
