Reinterpreting Fashion from the Fall 2012 Runways
Reinterpreting Fashion From the Fall 2012 Runways
Go Wild with Prints
From everything from blue marble to wild fish-eye looking prints, the realm of fashion has no boundaries. These wild prints worn head-to-toe might be a bit much to add to your wardrobe, but I can see them as the new look for jeans and also subdued for a more modern twist in the form of a shift dress. Geometric or odd-looking shapes can change the entire style and illusion of a look. I think we’ll see some clever uses of the wild prints in ways more easily wearable, even if it is something simple such as a scarf.
Brocade in the New Age
Embodying a Victorian-era feeling or maybe even styles from the Middle Ages, brocade holds a regal appeal. While the fabric can appear heavy, the result is one that is dramatic and elegant. Bell-shaped sleeves on long, velvet gowns intertwined with gold and silver threads might not be your first choice, but a brocade jacket paired with boyfriend jeans can really create a combination perfect for fall. Or, combining brocade with lighter, sheer fabrics, such as that which has been modeled on the runway, shows the right way to capture the trend.
Joan Rivers just did a segment on Fashion Police discussing whether leather is hot or not for end of summer, and I say the look can stay. A black, motorcycle jacket instantly keeps an outfit from being too sweet or too simple when layered with anything from a floral sundress to a white tee and jeans. But don't limit yourself to black when embracing this trend, caramel tones, pumpkin shades, and rustic reds are also a fantastic way to wear the leather look. Jackets are probably your best bet, but curve-hugging dresses or even leather pants may just find their way to your closet this fall.
