Trend #1: Bright Trousers
L ~ R: Street Style in San Francisco blog; runways 2009; Tuppence Haypenny blogI've shown three different lengths. As you can see, the above-the-knee is worn with flats, which I believe is fine, but the bellows are with heels. The first skirt is a marigold color and velvet, two other 2011 Fall trends.
Trend #2: Working Girl Dress
Trend #3: Choker Necklaces
Trend # 4: Old Gold
Trend #5: Jade Green
Trend #6: Maxi Skirts
So what to do if you have the rack or the hips and you want to rock a maxi skirt? Go further back in time, Fashionable Reader, to the 1930s and early 1940s.
Trend #7: Tartan!
The Check Family: Windowpane = tones of 2 colors, fainter stripes; check = two bold colors, little or no striations or heathering; tartan (usually) 3 or more colors, multiple stripes.Now where was I? Of yes, love of plaid.
dress I love so well from a shoot for Locus Magazine. Someone wanted to see it with the big sleeves, here it is!
Now and then: 2011 Burberry Prorsum and 1950s wiggle dress
Trend #8: Slits
Here's a lovely version from J. Peterman.
Trend #9: Maxi Coat
In the end, if you can find the perfect duster, of all the Fall 2011 trends, this is the one you should invest in. But make certain it is the perfect maxi coat for your figure and climate. These coats will be around forever, you can wait to find the right one.
Want to have fun with your winter coat this year and stay on trend? I'm going to say it, you know I am, opt for a cheaper fun cape instead. So much cuteness.
In addition to the fashions discussed above, I also spotted the following on the Fall 2011 runways:
- lots of leather and black
- opaque tights
- shorts with tights and boots
Runway Daily's report on Fall 2011, and Fab Sugar's take. Both Prada and Miu Miu are going retro for Fall! Yes!
