Hot Looks in Cool Fall Weather

Posted by



Spring
2013 collections wrapped up their debuts on runways across the Northern Hemisphere
last month. As if the designers knew we would see our first snowfalls of the
season this week, they wanted to leave us with a small glimpse of something
bright to look forward to come April. As we prepare for cooler weather and pine
for at least one more warm, carefree summer afternoon, let’s think back to
February when we first fell in love with the Fall
2012 styles that had just been unveiled to us.

We couldn’t wait for that first crisp morning when we could pull
on our knee high boots, paired with an embellished whimsical blouse and one
very cozy, oversized statement coat. Is the excitement coming back to you? Get
comfortable as we refresh your memory on this season’s hottest cool-weather
trends.

All in the Details

Luxury
is back, and this season is all about layers of opulence. Keep this trend simple
by dressing up your favorite blouse, with an embellished collar or a statement
necklace. You will be on the mark with elaborate accessories this season.
Everything from embroidered shoes to intricate filigree jewelry: it is all
about endless details. If you’re feeling more dramatic, fully embrace the
baroque trend, and pair your most ornate pieces together. Think a delicate lace
dress with an embroidered overcoat, your dressiest heels and favorite jewels.
Forget the old adage of less is more.

Bold Schoolgirl

Designers
prove that schoolgirl innocence can be playful, yet sophisticated. Get the look
this season wearing a vintage-style button-up blouse with a peter-pan collar
and preppy tartan mini skirt. The way to wear the trend best this fall is by
combining all decades of style. Maybe you love the look of a pleated skirt with
knee highs, so try pairing with a bold printed sweater to achieve that “fresh
off the runway” look. As mentioned in our previous trend, you can’t go wrong
with bold accessories. Thick-rimmed glasses, a statement piece of jewelry or
even a bold hairstyle can bring your look to the present moment.

Supersized

You may think oversized translates to shapeless, and therefore
only necessary when trying to hide those few extra pounds after one too many
holiday desserts. Not so this season. Designers are using size as a bold
statement, with color and dramatic structure. The extra volume brings another
element that can be balanced with slim trousers or other minimal pieces. This
trend is especially emphasized in coats seen on the runway, with some coats
being an outfit alone. If you are hesitant to invest in this trend, try one of
the classic pea coat style coats that are always on point. You can also try a
classic, tailored coat with exaggerated details, such as a collar, that still
make a striking statement.

Whether you are going for dramatic luxury or boldness this fall,
this season’s trends are sure to suit any fashionista’s taste. For the
international chic shopper, be sure to purchase your favorite items and have
