Fab fall trends are in the stores, and since the early bird is the best dressed chick, shopping sooner rather than later affords you the maximum in choices of sizes and selections.
While fashions reflect the conservative-chic of Mad Men, this season’s luxurious textures and rich tones reinvent the look of glam.
For all your wardrobe moods, this Fall’s top three trends will have you looking and feeling in-the-know, up-to-date and flaunting your best style.
Is burgundy the new black this season? Some fashion editors say it’s navy. I’m loving both of these dominant shades for fall. (p.s. No other color will ever ‘replace’ black, it’s our greatest basic). Look for rich shades of burgundy called Bordeaux, brandy and oxblood. Midnight is not the only blue this fall, brilliant cobalt and deep teal are fashion favorites as well. Black and any shade of blue are a hot mix and pairing a navy with black makes a stunning statement. Add orange spice, poppy red, windsor green and honey gold. It’s a beautiful palette to warm up in.
From tops to leggings and dresses to pants, black leather (or faux leather if that is your preference) is a big fall favorite.
Luxurious and feminine, velvet naturally creates a stunning and gorgeous look. Can you guess which colors showcase velvet best – burgundy and
navy of course. Hmm is that a coincidence?
If anything portrays a woman’s style, it is accessories. Elegant, funky, sweet, dramatic – accessories speak volumes about our mood and personality. This fall menswear, bold jewelry, boots, colorful bags and shoes top the list. Stay a step ahead and take note, gold tones are at the centre of accessory trends. You will find gold on the smallest of details – links on a purse, buttons, trim, heels – anything metallic.
Have fun this fall, try something different and be sure to complete each outfit so it’s ready, set to wear!

Wednesday is my ‘wear-a-dress-day’. I love the feeling of a summer dress. Cool. Breezy. Feminine. No waistbands to deal with; no pant legs sticking on a hot day. Do you have a favorite dress you like to wear?
