The Do's and Dont's of Fall Fashion

The leaves are turning, a chill has swept across the state, pumpkin everything sounds delicious, and wardrobes are transforming from sundresses and sandals to boots and sweaters.. this can only mean one thing; Fall has arrived! I don't know about you but the change of season this year has brought a new excitement all its own. I daily crave a pumpkin late, pumpkin oatmeal muffins, or pumpkin soup. Not to mention the beauty that Fall brings... orange and yellow never looked so good!

Each year Fall introduces us to new trends or re-introduces us to old ones. This year is no different. As your style guide I am here to take your hand, and walk you through what is sure to be one of the most exciting fashionable Fall seasons yet!

Walking off New York Fashion Week's runways and into your closets are theses trends....and don't forget, every fashionista knows to modify every trend to what works for your body.. just because it's in style doesn't mean it will work for you. Pick a few trends you identify with and rock the heck out of 'em!!

DO glam up those cozy knits

                   Don't be afraid to mix rustic and chic! Just be sure not to go too crazy mixing colors.

DON'T save bright colors just for Spring

                    Do pull out that tangerine trench that makes you feel like dynamite this fall!

DO play with fun textures in your wardrobe

                      Don't shy away from mingling with pleats, fur, and mohair all in one outfit.

DON'T pass on the statement collar

                        Do express yourself in a new way this season, from neck to toe!

DO sport oversized vintage jackets and sweaters

                           Don't get swallowed up by this trend, still show off those sexy legs

DON'T turn your back on peplum

                             Do continue to explore this wearable style in everything from dresses to pants & tops

DO patterns

                           Don't be afraid to wear patterns from head to toe

DON'T stick with the typical handbag

                          Do make a statement with you bag, opt for a classic shape with a rad pattern!

ALSO!!!... don't get trapped into wearing the typical brown and orange color tones for Fall. While those are not bad, they are just too limiting for Fashionistas like us. Here is Pantone Fall 2012 Color Palette~
      ---Colors from top left; French Roast, Honey Gold, Pink Flambe, Tangerine Tango, Ultramarine Green, Bright Chartreuse, Olympian Blue, Titanium, Rhapsody, & Rose Smoke

Now go out there and show this Fall what you've got!! My favorite trend this season is the statement collar!.. What's yours??
