Can you believe it is November? For fall 2012 fashion trends, it means it is time to turn up the heat! Designers for New York Fashion Week brought out a palette of fiery colors. Designers also kept you cozy with the big fuzzy trend of using fur.
This has been the year of the Girl on Fire. It only seems appropriate that a hot color palette for fall ignites your wardrobe. How gorgeous are the flame-like silk prints of Theia’s gown and Monique Lhuillier’s day dress? Anna Sui brings out the fiery hues in different patterns while Pavoni, Josie Natori and Monique Lhuillier create heated silhouettes from flared chiffon, silk crepe or shiny leather
Fur can be super luxurious if you have the budget. If you don’t, accessories make a dramatic statement, like a big fur hat or shrug from Pamella Roland. Do certain fashion choices weight on your conscience? It doesn’t have to be real fur to rock this trend. Designers Betsey Johnson and BCBG Max Azria strike a dramatic look without harming animals. The quality and colors of faux fur are fantastic these days when accenting a fabulous coat. Of course, a great furry texture works too. Creating volume with loops, fringe or even feathers can pimp out the most basic silhouette. Anna Sui’s great fall coats and sweaters make the artsy crafty technique work very well.
