Trend IV: Print-A-Porter
So, this fall prints are having a moment. But, prints are ‘always’ having a moment, I hear you scream. Ladies have no fear! For these are not your average itty-bitty summer prints; these are Fall Prints- Rodarte’s wheat fields or Proenza Schouler’s Navajo inspired motifs or D&G’s alphabets - a full-fledged trend that is a très bit edgy and downright wow-worthy.
They're not girly flowers; they're pretty, but in an avant gardesque way. Tiny or supersized, multicoloured or monochromatic, wild to willowy, floral prints seem to have made a huge impact over the fashion scene and continue to rule the runways.
2.Dare to Dot
Spotted, Polka Dots getting naughty, nice and noticed all over the F/W ’11-’12 runway. Whether you show them on your dress, your jacket, or on a jumper, the dot adds a jolt of playfulness to your outfit.
Get set to whet your trendy-buds and let your animal instinct come out and play- For femme’s gone feline. Choose leopard, zebra or snake and get set to unleash thy style beast.
4.Star and Stripes
While the stars shone bright at Dolce and Gabanna, stripes ran horizontal, vertical, criss and cross at Sass&Bide, Chloé and Proenza Schouler.
Trend V: Well-Plaid!
The humble plaid has come into its own this season, featuring traditional plaids to Glenn plaids, Scottish interpretations to tartans in eye-catching colours. Not just for shirts, plaid was lavishly used on everything: from dress to skirts to coats and trousers suits.
