The Top Fashion Trends for Fall 2011

Work Dress: The Wardrobe Workhorse
Thank Gucci, dresses continue to be a big trend for fall work fashion. We love dresses because they are soooo easy to wear (serious just add shoes ) and a major time saver in the morning. Again, tailored dresses straight out of Rosalind Russell’s 1960s closet continue to reign (for style inspiration watch NBC’s new TV show “Pan-Am” or Reruns of “Mad Men”.

    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.
