Fall TRENDS 2008 are here.
This year we are bring back the old and making them new again. Of course one trend that always sticks is the feminine trend, which to me is a no brainer, but yes femininity is still here. Lace to the left of us, ribbons to the right. It’s all about ruffles and pleating and bows. Colors are obviously taken right from the lingerie drawer, though the fabrics are weightier and more street-worthy.
Take a look at what feminine styles we have this fall:
Also back this season would have to be the metallics and of course we can’t forget slouchy. All metals are worn — gold, silver, bronze, hematite, copper and mercury too. They’re even combined. Oooo….Also lace, silk and skins are given the metallic treatment without the usual hard edges. The result is a feminine (coincidence, i think not) fluidity. Slouchy, the mood is hands-in-pockets, but the clothes are hardly shapeless. Keep an eye out on how all feature a strong shoulder or a banded waist, making the draping anything but random. There seems to be a lot of sweaters like that already coming out!
Next would have to be country and no we are talkin’ chaps. We are talking about tweeds, plaids, checks and corduroys in rust, green and brown. These styles are geared for the great outdoors where it really does get cold, brrrr! But that doesn’t mean the silhouettes won’t work on a city street!

And of course the Rocker style is back. All the flash is above the waist. Lots of links, crisscrossing chiffon or velvet, and a cardigan with glitz. Not too different than before, maybe just a little more cleaned up i guess, no need do go into detail.
This season we have something new, Art Prints! You know like geo prints and crazy brushed colors, literally your clothing is an art canvas. Well some are good and some aren’t you’ll have to decide for yourselves. I personally love this new trend.
Next on the list is the ever so popular floral. Floral has always been around but this fall we are talking bright bouquets. But don’t be too intimidated these pretty flowers are tamed with a darker background. Also don’t just try clothing floral has been brought accessories this fall.
Take a peek:
This season is amazing we are actually going with autumn colors for once! The colors project a sensual season in silk charmeuse and soft merino wool. Suede and patent leather look rich as well.
Ok well that sums up this fall trends keep looking for winter and spring as well. Now go on your own into the shopping jungle, we have given you the tools all you must do is follow the rules. Trend 911 is always updating to keep you your stylin’ best!
