Want to add a little pizazz to your wardrobe with some fun Fall/Winter 2012 fashion trends? Try these for a little extra somethin’-somethin’.
The Statement Collar.
The bedazzled collar continues to thrive as a trend on and off the runways. Peter pan collars make you look smart and polished. To save a bit of money, find detachable collars on sites like Etsy or check out YouTube for a DIY one!
Don’t save bright colors for spring! Donna Karan reminded us of this age-old technique for making bright, cheery color work in cold weather: add black! Don’t forget to update your stash of black tights at the beginning of the season. A shiny, no-pills pair makes an outfit look so much more pricy.
Dark red and purple shades were a big statement this season. Find the shade that suits your skin tone. Brick reds look great on warm skin tones, for example, while bluish plums look great on cool ones. Hello Burgundy, Plum, Maroon and fall.
Dressed up Knits.
At the J.Crew presentation, cozy sweaters were given a glam update when paired with dazzling skirts and silky printed pants. Don’t be shy! Mix rustic sweaters with your most dance-floor-ready bottoms.
