The Top Fashion Trends for Fall 2011


Colored Pencil Pants: The Attention-Getter

You’re probably thinking we’re off our rocker on this trend, but hear us out. Pencil pants are like the kinder, gentler, skinny pants. While skinny pants taper in at the ankle, pencil pants tend to be tailored more like capris, curving in slightly through the thigh, with a slight flare at the hem. Add in a bit of color and you’ve got a trend that is both daring and familiar. For those of us who are a bit less adventurous, try the pants first in a deeper color like rust or forest 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:
    – 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.
