Fall 2011 Fashion Trends

It's my favorite time of year! Fall fashion is hitting stores and I can hardly wait to get my hands on a chunky blanket sweater and some maxi skirts! I won't be able to wear them until October but when have I ever let that stop me before. 

According to the Anthropologie facebook page: "Oh, fashion, you silly little thing, you! Ushering in autumn before temperatures drop; flaunting your woolens, cords and tweeds in such a way that has us questioning whether wearing a cableknit poncho in 90-degree heat is, in fact, completely logical."This is exactly how I feel!!

So let's start with the Pantone 2011 Fashion Color Trend Forecast:

We are seeing a lot of mustards 
The Row and Wes-Gordon Fall/Winter 2011

and burnt colors for Fall as well as some heather grays,
Michael Kors 

Jade Green 

Yigal Azrouel, Honor and Marc by Marc Jacobs, Fall-Winter 2011

and Champagnes. 
Donna Karen                                                                              Valentino

As far as prints, it's all about polka dots, plaids and a touch of lace.

Notice the lengths of these dresses. The mid-calf hem is very trendy this Fall and is termed the "midi" also in for Fall 2011 is knee length skirts, gone are the minis!

I am really liking Jill Stuart fall collection! I am really excited about the midi skirts, wide pants and platform chunky heels since that is best for my fuller figure! Thanks Jess!
