Texture And Dramatic Dark Colours In The 2012 Fall Fashion Palette - Guest Post

Fall is all about texture – luxurious fabrics of smooth velour, the sheen of gold radiance, and plush accessories. Classy yet sexy, classic yet updated, the 2012 fall fashions bring back old favourites with new twists.

Think Shakespeare, with sequins, ornamental spangles, glittering, and elegant beading, and tapestry fabrics in evening wear with baroque influences. Autumn evening fashions demand indulgence in extravagance and opulence. Girls can be princesses again with the renaissance flavour in fabric and style.

Soft pastels colours will add to regal feminine gowns and glamorous cocktail attire. Even gold won’t be too brassy and softer hues will make themselves known at night. Cooler weather in the fall calls for the embracing warmth of velour, not with a heavy drapery effect but with a soft lilt, flowing like royalty.

Fitted sheaths, not too tight, and frock dresses work well with belts and leggings. Mid-knee hem lines or no more than a couple of inches below the knee will show off curvy limbs. The consummate little black dress will be belted or narrowed at the waist and accented by patterned pumps or sleek boots. The idea is to give a little bit more of a formal flavour.

A variety of pantsuit styles will hit stores this autumn in updated variations of cropped pants and flared pants with a retro look. Layered suits add a modern lift to the pantsuit ensemble. Pantsuits aren’t replacing skirts, but the skirts will be more defined, like pencil skirts, emphasizing long legs and belted waistlines or at least, a narrow waist.

Modern girls will enjoy the sleek laminated finishes for outerwear and accessories. Fall collections have also introduced intricate prints, latticework patterns, and embroidered designs in pantsuits, blouses, and dresses alike.

Department stores and malls across the country will display oversized autumn outerwear complemented with loose trousers and easy layers, topping glossy sleek boots and classic pump styling meshed with patterns and colours. Skinny leggings will not disappear but will be the backdrop for a myriad of boots, topped with wool ponchos, woven one-piece shawls, and other gorgeous layered cover-ups.

Tribal wear is being replaced by the straight lines and triangular finishes of civilized military style including epaulettes and peacoats. Waistlines will be emphasized with tightly snuggled belts and handbags strapped in straight lines across the chest.

Dramatic eye makeup takes its cue from nature in beautiful peacock colours, and the wings of other birds and opalescent insect wings. Opaque lipsticks emphasize red pouty lips, captivating flirtatious innocence.

Clutch purses will beautifully accessorize wardrobes in the fall season. Fur and embroidered clutches will keep the textured theme and will feel wonderful in hand.

Hair will have more of an edge to it, making bold statements, and barrettes will add sparkle and glitter. Classy accessories will add a finishing touch and compliment provocative non-symmetrical hair styles. The classic fedora will top off masculine fashions like the military style. Jewellery will offer strong lines, blocks of colour, and natural stones. Contrasts of light and dark will make daring statements on delicate ears.

Pastels and extremely neutral palettes can still pop in the right ensemble with the right accessories. Blacks, browns, greys, dark blues, winter white, and taupe are classic fashion colours for fall and winter that will sizzle with sparkling accents.

This year’s 2012 fall season will see edgy clothes and a good fit with feminine waistlines in masculine attire, or fun girlie fashions in sexy, classic styling.
