5 Women’s Fall Fashion Trends for 2012

Fall Fashion TrendsFall style is cozy and comfortable with looks that anyone can copy. The basics components of fall style are colors, textures and warmth. When you think of fall, you think of autumn leaves and earthy colors like copper, burgundy, brown, black or gold. These are great colors for fall as they are earthy colors that you find in nature. Here are a few fashion trends for women.

1. Sweaters

Fall sweaters include the classic cable-row, knit sweaters, cashmere, cardigan, Henley’s, turtlenecks and hoodies. The colors are brown, dark gray, camel, burgundy, burnt orange or pumpkin. You could wear any color as long as it is a dark color to fit the fall theme. Looks for fall include layering a long or short-sleeve shirt under a sweater of a contrasting color. Textures can be smooth and thin to fit over T-shirts or blouses, or thick and bulky to keep away the chill. One popular style is the Heritage Tweed Turtleneck Sweater. The sweater looks great paired with skinny jeans or black leather pants and ankle boots.

2. Pants

The look this year is leather. Leather pants in all styles from skinny fit to bell bottom, in colors of red, brown, black, plum,  gray, camel, olive green and navy blue. Pair them with flats, pumps, and a platform wedge or ankle boots. Styles range from boot-cut, wide-leg and cropped for a variety of looks and occasions. Another popular style is the pajama-style pants worn with a slim jacket and pumps or flats.

3. Leggings

An alternative to jeans or slacks are leggings. These can be worn with sweaters, long-sleeve shirts and jackets. These come in a variety of styles and colors to match any season. Leggings are very soft and comfortable which makes them a good choice for fall and winter dressing because they can be used alone or as layers under other clothes depending on the weather.

4. Boots

Popular boot styles for fall include ankle boots and knee boots in leather and suede. Choose from the popular chunky heel or wedge-style heels for comfort and functionality. Shop Christian Louboutin for the classic Dartata Knee Red Sole Boot in sueded leather. This particular boot has a rounded toe and a stacked heel for stability and comfort. These would look great with a pair of boot tights or leggings in gray or black. Another style might be the Christian Louboutin Dugueclina Side Dip Red Sole Bootie. This lovely boot is the color of red velvet with a suede upper and dipped sides and 4” stiletto heel.

The Smoking Slipper is an alternative to heels and boots with an emphasis on comfort.

5. Handbags

Hobo Bags are in. Popular handbags for fall are the Michael Kors Hobo Bag in black, camel and cheetah print. The outside is leather with gold-tone accents and gathered tassel. The Gucci Dressage Hobo Bag is another popular bag as well as the Prada Pocket Hobo Bag. For a dressy look, the Prada Spazollato Clutch bag in black or camel would work very well.

Popular materials are leather, snakeskin and alligator in a variety of colors.

Mix and match the colors and styles to create a custom look that is unique and may just start a new trend. When dressing for fall, do not forget to accessorize outfits according to the occasion. For a casual event, a sweater and pants with boots would look polished with a heavy pendant of amber and gold or a chunky bracelet. Be careful not to over-accessorize, keep it to one or two pieces at the most.

These looks for fall are comfortable as well as practical for any occasion.
