First look at the fall fashion trends of 2010
By Erin Darling
HollywoodNews.com: Enjoy your summer sandals while you can! Fall is quickly approaching and you’ll soon have to kiss your beloved bikinis and denim shorts goodbye. But with the conclusion of every season, comes the opportunity (or excuse) to shop for another. Keep these trends in mind while you start to eye new pieces for your fall wardrobe.
One of the overall themes we’ve seen in the fall fashion shows is that casual garb should be temporarily retired come September and it’s perfect acceptable (even commendable) to dress up again. This was evident by the amount of professional looks, menswear inspired pieces, tailored coats, and the increase of darker, demure grays and navy blues that we’ve seen on the runways. However, professionals and creative spirits alike can embrace this trend. If for no other reason, than simply as a reminder us that hemlines can actually go somewhere other than up. This fall, fashionistas with an appreciation for the conservative can easily supplement their wardrobe with Antonio Berardi blazer-dresses,
Balmain pinstripe suits,
and Stella McCartney pleated slacks.
Showing up to the office has never been this glamorous.
Both London and Paris fashion week proudly proclaimed that sheer is here. Designers like Julien MacDonald showed dresses with see-through lace details, while models wore barely-there sheer blouses for Givenchy and Giambattista Valli. It goes without saying that sheer isn’t exactly for the shy, but with some clever layering, anyone can wear this trend. Remember that cardigans, vests, and jackets can help you cover up a sheer shirt. Also, for those of us itching to wear fall pieces now, sheer clothing is a great way to transition summer-wear into what you’ll be wearing this fall. If the sheer strikes you with fear, stick with dresses or blouses embellished with lace.
