Fall Forward Ahead of Time

Here’s what we have to be looking and shopping for right now to get the deals for Fall 2010’s fashion topsy turvy- as we have a lot of major changes to expect. However, by shopping now and clearing out vintage stores and relatives’ closets your wallet won’t suffer the consequences. Shopping is the only subject that actually translates financial jargon such as “economic forecasts and trends” in a way I can understand and apply it in day-to-day life.  So, here we go!

The Fall 2010 Runway Rundown:

  • It’s all about the 60’s and not the hippy short-skirt-bohemian verging on 70’s, but the elegant calf length A-line, button down skirts in camels, wools, suedes, chocolates, and amazing feminine tall boots and hats 60’s
  • Silk blouses with the center bow-neckties, feminine yet tailored
  • My favorite accent accessory happens to be the long calf to knee length overcoats in camel or large wool capes with oversized buttons. Blazers, Berrets, wool hats, gloves, over-the-top elegance in understated cuts and colors
  • Layers
  • Double Breasted Overcoats- mid-calf to knee length trenches
  • Stalkings- yes ladies, stalkings
  • Elegant turtle necks, cowl necks, ribbed sweaters belted with long skirts and belts topped off with berrets
  • The hair and make-up is just as important to finish the polished and elegant look.  Accessories are classic.  We are going back in time this season and it is going to be a blast AKA: time to rade Grandma’s closet asap time! So, ladies- trade your summertime rompers for faux flings and thigh-high cut-offs for sky high platform heels and slacks! Here’s what I mean:

    I think your post was actually a solid start to a potential series of articles about this topic. So many writers pretend to know what they are preaching about when it comes to this topic and most of the time, very few people actually get it. You seem to grasp it though, so I think you need to take it and run. Thank you!
