Dress the Trend Within!

So just as the forecast has predicted, way back in February... we are beginning to see Fall's hottest (or shall I say coolest) trends hit the streets! ...from Beauty to Fashion!

Just take a stroll down Fifth Avenue and you'll see that most of the store window displays are merchandised with Fall's "NOW" colors... Grey and Red! Grey is definitely going to last throughout the season, and you'll continue to see it as the neutral working especially well for Fall's hosiery, knitwear, outerwear, dresses and wide leg pants! It's so easy to wear, and all shades work! It's a cozy color, and compliments all of the season's Bold Colors that you'll find in most of the accessories! While the bold purples, royal blues, bright pinks, golden yellows and vibrant oranges are sure to hit the scene... a RED bag, clutch, shoes and/or gloves MUST make it into your wardrobe this Fall!

The leggings, ladies, are slowly fading away!! What was one of the hottest trends since last fall will soon be classified as a 'fashion Oh-NO'! Instead, this fall we will be revisiting the opaque tights... and guess what color you'll be seeing all over?? You got it! GREY! I'm sure there's no need to reiterate that tights are NOT stockings, but just in case... you get the point!

I love the sleeve details on all of the tops this season... puff and balloon sleeves on coats, cardigans, dresses and blouses add a flirty, girly touch to your basics.

While designers are relying on celebrities to pretty much be their anchor people in setting the trends, it's important to remember that you have to Dress the Trend Within. You are a real person, with a real body, and you may not have the pocket size of the rich and famous... YET! So although it's totally OK to be inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyonce, Jessica Alba, Sienna Miller, Kerry Washington, Paris Hilton, etc... what works for them may not work for you! Staying in the 'know' of what's going on in Fashion helps you to confidently step out in Style! ...Regardless of whether you're shopping at H&M or Saks! Personal style plus Class plus Confidence equals Beauty!!
