Fall Sneak Peak
Trend: Mod Tights
Autumn 2011 will see a major surge of retro sixties style, with the mod look resurfacing in new, fresh designs and color palettes. This look is about opaque retro hues, color blocking, and subtle updated versions of traditional 6o’s patterns.
Body Jewelry Hint: to create a cohesive look with mod tights, fashion all your accessories accordingly. For body jewelry this means simple shapes, creamy opaque tones, color blocking, and very basic use of crystal.
Trend: Red Jeans
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is the most recent in the line of celebrities who are snapping up J Brand’s 811 Colour Pop Jeans in Red. This trend is generally seen paired with unassuming solid black and white, neutral accessories, and simple graphics. Amongst the famous and fabulous who are rocking J Brand red skinnies this season: Mischa Barton, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Hayden Panettiere.
Trend: Black and White
As Janelle Monae, Jessie J, and Claire Maguire recently proved at the Glastonbury Festival this year, black and white are back. The monochrome look is seen in many contexts, but most thrilling and of the moment seems to be a polished retro feel including, stripes, blocks, lace, satin, and a lot of attitude.
Body Jewelry Hint: the monochrome look is certified head to toe, so matching black and white baubles are a definite must.
Trend: Round Shades
Especially for the beach, this trend is easy and fun, and you’ll find no shortage of options in your local department store.
Trend: Utilitarian Head to Toe Denim
