There are many perks about living in the Caribbean like the beautiful beaches and the fact that there is never a shortage of sunshine, well except on the days when there is liquid sunshine (rain) of course. On the downside however, living in Barbados and for others in Caribbean countries, is that I don’t get to enjoy the changes in climate of the different seasons on less I travel abroad. For those special occasions, I like to stay on top of fashion trends for each season which lets me stay fashionable and weather appropriate. As september comes to an end and october begins the leaves are turning their golden brown color, it’s mother nature way of telling us another season has begun and many fashionistas are layering up for the weather ahead.
Fall is here and even though the main prerogative is to cover up from the chill it doesn’t mean we still can’t be cute and there are many trends going around already. This fall season apart from the traditional fur and knits, there were other trends that have caught my eye. There is the colour trend with the main colours being black, white, blue and burgundy, but burgundy refered to as the “new black” by Nina Garcia takes the cake. A wardrobe staple this fall is leather and you can choose from the many pants, skirts, dresses, shirts, jackets available. A major trend no pun intended is the military look, its back this season so go get them from the back of the closet, I surely will as I have mine from a previous season. Also this fall add some flair to your wardrobe with geometric prints, as we can never get enough of prints.
These are my favourite fall looks from the top fall trends for 2012.
YSL, Jason Wu, Bottega Veneta
Jason Wu, Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry
Lela Rose, Cacharel, Prada
So, this fall season stay warm and werk it!
