How to Wear the Trend: Must Have Pieces for Fall 2012


I’ve figured out how to master the runway color trends in real life, now it’s time to figure out how to wear the must have trends off the runway and on the sidewalks.

Bear Arms: Several designers showed outerwear looks that at their base were streamlined and sophisticated but a look to the right or the left revealed sleeves in furs and pelts.

Over the Top Toppers:  In velvets and satin, featuring ornate beading, textures or embroidery these coats aren’t ideal for the next blizzard but they make a beautiful statement.

Shop: Pink: Dress/Coat/Clutch/Pump; Blue: Dress/Coat/Flat; Emerald: Blouse/Pant/Coat/Pump

On Top:Several designers showed models in hats.  Some were a part of the sartorial statement (Jason Wu), others were a outlandish statement all their own.

Urban Prairie Girl:  There is the city girl, you know her in leather and black.  And now there is the urban prairie girl; she’s wearing layers, leather, sheepskin, hats, scarves, neutral tones.

Military Precision: As a throwback to the 40’s there were quite a few looks that were expertly tailored and reminiscent of the 1940’s military aesthetic.  In slim silhouettes, natty tweeds, and even the bomber jacket were on the runway.
