The forecast for fashion trends for 2012 is bolder and brighter than ever. During the summer, fashion designers get together, grab a low fat latte, and consult one another on the up and coming fashion trends and styles for this autumn season. Colors and textures are set to play a big role this autumn, and it looks like this season plaid, military and tartan are set to make a comeback.
This autumn season popular color palettes will be neutral tones, such as maroons, light browns and deep purples. If these colors seem too drab for you, try adding brighter-colored accessories, such as belts, handbags and hats. These are a great way to cut a dash and make a splash on old conservative favorites. This is not only top class trendy but adds flare and style to your wardrobe. Also, color palettes which complement each other will be a big boon this autumn; try pantone pallets such as French roast, honey gold and pink flambé.
Sparkly Color Blocks
Since color harmony is essential, color blocking looks like a summer trend which will continue on into autumn – a great way to go. For evening or special occasions, you may want to choose a sparkly outfit which contrasts with these vivid blocks. While this is fashion-acceptable, it should never be over-done. If glittery outfits are worn in excess, they can make you look out-dated so use caution when opting for this type of clothing. You don’t want retro clothing looking unironic – like you have just kept wearing it whether it has been in or out of fashion or not! If you are looking to maintain fashion cool, black is a color that will never go out of style. The most popular of all the neutral tones, black can make you look slimmer and is perfect for both day and evening. What’s more black can be worn with any other color. Adding a color accessory, such as a bright chartreuse scarf or an Olympian blue belt to a black outfit will be very attractive and stylish.
Another fashion trend for autumn 2012 are prints. Animal prints, such as leopard zebra and python, are a super must have. While not new to the world of fashion, these prints continue to be uber-hot. Whether you want to go for some printed leggings or a hot jump suit, animal prints are best worn when combined with solid colors. For example, a leopard print dress can look fabulous with a black or gold shrug or blouse. Other prints expected to make a huge comeback in autumn, 2012 are plaids. Again, while not new to the fashion industry, plaids can be worn with a variety of color accessories to update your look beautifully.
Shoe and handbag trends for autumn, 2012 are beginning to make their way onto the fashion scene. It is thought amongst many style leaders that leather shoes, boots and handbags designed in patterns of snake or crocodile prints will be very fashion-forward-thinking this fall. Suede, patent leather and faux fur appears to be a super trendy look in footwear for autumn. Wedges, platforms and bolder heels in bright neon or gaudy pastel colors will undoubtedly be seen on the pages of top class fashion magazines. Lace-up shoes in all colours and styles are very trendy this year in fashion and are both chic and sexy. They can add a touch of style to any outfit. In the never-ending topsy-turvy world of fashion, you can be assured of always finding the right outfit just for you.
Keeping up with top designers and fashion trends is both fun and exciting. Give into it – take the world by storm this coming autumn.
