Fall Fashion 2012
After being out in the stores, I’d like to talk about what I see are the major trends for Fall 2012.
One of the most important trends is the Pencil Skirt. A lot of pencil skirts, at all prices, are in all the retailers
out there for the taking. One of my favorites is the “Kate Spade” Pencil Skirt. It does run short, but it is great with black tights and flats. And it has polka dots all over it, but they are black on black, so they are very subtle. It is a great skirt.
The second trend I want to talk about is Leather. Out there in the stores I see leather at all prices. Zara has a lot of great leather pieces from $59.90 and up. I even saw some plether, which is your faux leather. I saw pants at Target yesterday for a great price. They also had a faux leather skirt. So if you just want a little touch of a leather look, that would be fun to get something at Target and just wear it for the season.
The third trend I want to talk about is Animal Print. Now of course, animal prints are always in style. But this season, because women wear so much black, an animal print shoe would be perfect. Just the shoe with all black, or even black and a touch of red as a cammi or an underpinning. Or a great animal print handbag to accent, or also an animal print shell or blouse. I did see a lot of that out in the stores, so don’t worry if you do buy it and it’s animal print that it will always be in style.
The last thing I want to talk about is the color Purple. Purple is so big, because again women wear traditionally black a lot. And if you just add a nice purple tank under a black suit, a black sweater, pair it with jeans, pair it with a pencil skirt. If you don’t like a lot of color, just add a purple shell and it will complete your outfit.
So those are four great trends for Fall 2012. I’ll think of some more wonderful things to share with you next time.
