Fall is the season of the year that fashion really starts to pick up, and if you are one of those fashion fans out there who likes to turn up their nose at trends, it is time for a reality check. Fashion trends do not always reflect the real world. If you ignore fashion trends and only follow what your heart desires, you could end up looking like Paris Hilton after her recent hair transplant. Trends are great, but they can also be your own worst enemy. Find out what this season’s fashion trends are and whether or not you should put your foot down and subscribe to them, or if they are actually a good idea.
Fashionable trends are everywhere you look, so it is important to be aware of what is popular and at the same time find out what is not so popular. The season’s most popular trend is the ever-fashionable lipstick, so you will need to decide if you want to wear the popular shade or find a shade that is more daring and make your own statement with lip color. There is no question that a little bold lipstick goes along with any outfit, and finding the right shade for your skin tone should not be a problem. The trend this season is to wear darker shades of lipstick with lighter clothing; think of the bold, dark eyeshadow being worn by Keira Knightley in her “okermalm” photos.
Another current fashion trend is for women to wear oversized suits. Oversized suits are the number one look for this season, which is evident in almost every single department store. If you are considering purchasing an oversized suit, you will also need to determine what kind of suit you want to wear as well as what kind of cut you prefer. You can choose from either a traditional three-button design a mock tuxedo design, or even a three-piece suit that combines a shirt, tie, pants, and vest.
One of the most important things you should know about this season’s fashion trends is that it all centers around jewelry. No matter how you decide to wear your jewelry, whether it is on your fingers, on your wrist, or around your neck, it is a must to match it with your overall outfit. Oversized jewelry is probably one of the easiest ways to add a little bling to your look, and you may find yourself gravitating towards gold, silver, or rhinestone pieces. This trend will only continue throughout the season and into the New Year. As always, you should only buy your jewelry after carefully choosing your outfit.
