Fall Fashion Trends And Tips

As the sizzling hot and stylish summer is unwinding and the weather is cooling, its now time to update your look and style to be more fashionable and trendy this fall 2008. Fall fashion trends always run towards stylish sweaters and scarves. It was also pretty much about retro-style fashion. Dress yourself up in chunky shoes and wide belts, and you're a fashion diva this season. Accessories are pretty much in demand this season. You can pump up your look with fashion neclace, oversized handbags, bangles and other jewelry which can complement your overall look this fall 2008.

Here I listed down some guide about the latest fashion trend this season.

1. The Color of Fall

Grey and Black is the ultimate comfort color of the season. Blend it with a red accent is perfect for it. You can also pair grey with cobalt, and other colors such as purple, yellow or green, and even black. It’s lovely to create a POP of color in accessories, such as a handbag, shoes or gloves.

2. Dont Forget Your Handbags!

Naturally, we can't forget one of our favorite accessories. Handbags! A handbag is the ultimate accessory to complete your outfit and adorn your uniqueness. Oversized bags in patent leather, pebble-grain leather, clear plastic is what in style this season. But you can also wear medium-size envelope bag or a clutch in metallics or shiny satin.

3. The Makeup

The makeup industry very closely mirrors the trends of the fashion industry. The color palettes this fall are golds, peaches and plums. As with anything in color, remember to choose colors that are right for your skin tone.

4. Fashionable Footware

Shoes and dress boots this fall come in a variety of styles. Round toe flats come in a variety of colors. A pair of black dress flats may come with a grey or red bow embellished with jewels. Shoes may be patterned in plaid, plain or colored, patent leather, hounds tooth, or maybe polka dot. Red stilettos may have a black strap, buckle or silver button ornamentation. Purple is a popular fashion color for multi strapped pumps this year. Colorful knee high dress boots adorn the models this fall. The high heeled cuffed bootine and comfortable belted leather boots for dressier occasions are all the rage.

In generally speaking, fashion this fall and winter is full of bright, vibrant accessories paired with the classic colors of grey and black clothing styles of past years. It is a great time to blend the old with the new to create a look to suit your own personality and sense of style. Enjoy!

Spring Fashion Trends

spring fashion image2008 spring fashion breathes life into a sombre world. The fantasy world of fashion provides us with some respite. Fashion runways burst into color. The look this season is breezy. Cheerful. An escape from the dreary world outside.

Here are a list of new and latest spring fashion trends this 2008

1. Prints

With the arrival spring, an array of mind-boggling prints prevail. From solid graphic color-block styles to an flurry of tiny colorful graphic shapes. Psychedelic prints to simple blocks of color are among the hot looks this season.

Florals too bloom everywhere. On skirts, dresses and even tops. For women and even the men, where resortwear is concerned.

Then there are the animal prints. Though not as prevalent as graphic prints and florals, animal prints are back, giving primal appeal to accessories as well as tops and dresses.

2. Color

Spring brings more than candy-colored brights. Colors in general are breezier. White, gray and taupe, tan and khaki have taken over as the neutral shades of the season. Colors may be muted or bright as in canary yellow, red, pink, lime green and every color under the sun. The rule is if it looks great on you, no matter how bright it might be, wear it.

3. Pregnancy Inspired Clothing

This isn't a style I particularly like but on a slender figure, if the material is luxurious enough, it can look good. Loose, comfortable dresses in silky fabrics seem to the thing to wear this season. Thankfully, belts are allowed, so if that loose dress makes you look fat, belt it with a wide belt. The difference can be amazing.

4. Sugar and Spice and All Girly Things

Spring brings out the Lolita look. Grown women dress like little girls with ruffles, frills and tiers which instead of looking ridiculous, when done right, look ultra-feminine.

Ruffles are everywhere. Along the neckline, which can provide a boost up there for women with smaller bustlines. Tiered skirts with ruffles from hips down are very flattering for women with narrow hips, giving them the illusion of curvier hips. The trick is to use frills, ruffles and tiers to fill out the curves you wish you had.

Always remember to update your look every time new season will arrive. Dont be afraid to try new things and always wear clothes that fit to your body. Help it helps. Enjoy!

Spring Fashion Tips

Finally spring has arrived, my favorite season of the year. Though it may still be chilly outside, spring fashion is heating up. From futuristic and edgy, to romantic and flowy, here’s a glimpse of the hottest trends of the season.

Tip #1: Yes To Light, Forget The Dark
Nobody wants to see you in dark and dreary clothing at the start of Spring! Put away your blacks and dark blues, and take out your whites, reds, pinks, and yellows.Be careful with this one as some complexions are not cut out for stark white. If you are nearing middle age, try using white in your accessories instead of brilliant white jackets or skirts. Everyone should be cautious about what we call Minnie Mouse shoes and please don't break out the white pants, skirts and shoes until after Memorial Day. I don't care what anyone says. Some rules are not meant to be broken.

Tip #2: Put away Those Pants and Go For Skirts and Dresses
You don't have to wear boring jeans every day. Instead, buy some colorful skirts and dresses to brighten your Spring Wardrobe. If you hate wearing anything you can't run around in, find some colorful slacks that look nice.

Tip #3: Show Your Happy Feet
Spring is the time to show your toes. Get yourself a pedicure and then go somewhere affordable like Target or Nordstrom's Rack to look for great shoe deals. Buy a nice array of heels and flats in a variety of colors and styles. Remember, don't buy a pair of shoes just because they are pretty, buy a pair of shoes because they fit nicely and are comfortable enough to walk in.

Tip #4: Blouses are back
After years of being out of the spotlight, blouses are at the front of the fashion parade this spring. Try anything ultra-feminine such as lace, sheer or linen. The best way to update your suit for the office is to add a ruffled blouse for high impact.

Tip #5: Accessories On The Go
Chunky necklaces are still in this season as well. Look also for shell pendants, necklaces, earrings and bangle bracelets in both soft shades of natural white and pink and vibrant tones of green, yellow and turquoise. Wood jewelry in deep, dark brown accented with gold metal for a clean, modern look will add drama to summer brights.

Remember no matter what styles you choose, you should always make sure you have other pieces (we recommend three) already in your wardrobe with which to coordinate. Also, be cognizant of the styles and how they look on someone of your age. Always be aware of shape and color and how it relates to your body. Just because they make it in your size does not mean you should wear it. Now enjoy the spring weather and flowers and have fun accessorizing your wardrobe.
