Fall/ Winter 2011 Trend Report- Part 3

Trend VI:Retro-spect
Seek and you shall find, a circa of your choice. This winter we are stepping back in time, and doing it in some ma-jor vintage style. Mash ‘40s Glam with ‘70s Boho-Chic, ‘50s New-Look with ‘60s Mod, as you style it, this versatile trend will take you from dusk to dawn and everywhere in-between in nanoseconds.

1.40s Elegance
The ‘40s made an elegant appearance, especially in the form of the day dresses, which were seen at Louis Vuitton and Miu Miu.

2.Peplum Parade
The Dior-esque peplum (“pouf” or faux skirt) has made quite an impression this season. Flattering to a variety of body types, it was spotted at Proenza Schouler, Giambattista Valli, Stella McCartney, Chanel Couture and Elie Saab.

3.60s ‘Mod’ified
Shift dresses, boxy jackets, Peter Pan collars, made up-to-date in jewel tone hues and bold prints were seen grooving down the runways.

4.That 70s Show
This fall, channel the chic 70’s with high waist wide leg trousers, neat bow-blouses, flowing gowns accompanied by plunging necklines or daring slits. 

Trend VII: Glowing with Glitz
To bling, or not to bling: that my dear is the real question.  This fall all things shinny- from gold to silver to bronze to sequins to shinny colours- is welcomed with open arms. But, be warned, if overdone, sheen has the power to turn eye-catchy into costume-y in a beat of a heart.

How many of these awe-some trends have made it to your fave list? Drop me a line with your choices and thoughts in the comment section.
