The Top Fashion Trends for Fall 2011

 

Color Blocking: Still Going Strong

The color blocking trend is still going strong and the same rules apply- use the color wheel to find colors that work well together (brown + yellow is no, but brown +orange works) and avoid prints (hence the name “color” blocking). If you’re still at style 101, stick to safe color blocking, purple + red or blue +green.

    I think that a maxi dress with a slit is very sexy and sophisticated. I’m so in love with the season’s bright colors, everything from orange to pretty prints! What a great way to make a day brighter and happier.

    I just bought a real suede skirt at CHKD today for $5. Yeah!!! What type of shirt and shoes should I wear with it to accomplish the fall leather trend? I’m only 13 though, so I shouldn’t look too adult.

    Amber, I like wearing mid-height heel boots with maxi skirts. It’s nice when I can match the boot leather to my belt. Looks nice and put together without being too matchy-matchy.

    Orange is a great and underrated color, but pale skinned ladies should be careful! I have to be careful with the oranges and orangey-reds on top because they can make me look jaundiced. This is my advice on orange for pale people:
    – Choose only oranges that fall on the red (not yellow) side of the color wheel: http://www.rewaj.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/color-wheel.gif
    – Use orange in skirts and pants and accents, not a lot of it near your face. If you do have a dress, wear a black or complimentary blue cardigan and jewelry to mitigate the face-orangeing effect of the top.
