Fall Fashion Trends 2010

Hello Fashionistas, Health Junkies, and Goddess' of all walks. This place is here for you to get the information you need to be all the woman you can be. So let's start with the fun stuff... Fall Fashion!!!

With Spring behind us it's time to look forwards to the coming cooler weather, the fashion it will bring, and the pact it will have on next year. Yes, Autumn / Fall 2010 fashion trends are on the horizon. With the new season comes a lot of new looks and, for those that aren't new, new takes on established fashion trends.

60s Lady Like: The silhouettes of the 1950s and 1960s make a strong return, with shapes that accentuate curves and foster femininity. The aesthetic is decidedly Mad Men, the look is versatile and fun. A hip-hugging sheath dress with a below-the-knee hem is the ultimate in hourglass dressing, while the full circle skirt and dress remain at the core of the trend.

Sophisticated 70s: By day it's all about high waists, wide legs, soft blouses and '70s accessories. By night, all that shimmers is gold. Flowing, draping dresses in high-shine fabrics or metallic hues are perfect for evening '70s glamour. Be bold and don't hold back, this look is about balancing softness with boldness.

Military Fashion: We'll forgive you if your first thought is "military, again?". Yes, military remains a trend for Autumn / Fall 2010 but not as you've previously come to know it. Following on from Spring 2010 the women's military trend, like the men's (below), turns away from the pomp and ceremony of military inspired clothing we've become accustomed to, and takes its cues from 20th Century military uniforms. From army green to shearling lined boots, it's now a trend that's far more subtle but no less appealing.

Lingerie as Outerwear: It's not necessarily about wearing your smalls in the street in the cold of Winter, but wearing underwear as outerwear is never-the-less a trend for Autumn (Fall) / Winter 2010. A mixture of sexuality and femininity, the trend encompasses everything from exposed bras and stay ups right through to delicate laces. Given it's for the colder months there's also a strong undercurrent of layering lingerie inspired pieces into outerwear.

Leather Clothing: We're in two minds about including leather clothing in a list of trends. Yes, it is on trend but it's hard to categorise. You see, it works in with so many other trends and isn't a style unto itself. You'll wear it with military and you'll buy hot pants made out of it. Nor is there anything new in wearing leather itself. But include it we must, you see the leather trend is extending into pretty much every other trend for the season. You name it, it'll be an option for your wardrobe in the colder months. Leather shorts, leather dresses, leather leggings... and more.

Button-up Collars: Refined sophistication underlies this burgeoning trend; so store those sloppy boyfriend shirts and revealing open collars. Whether it's a sheer blouse, a crisp business shirt, or an elegant shirt dress, the only way to wear it in 2010 and 2011 is to button it up. All the way up.
