Fall 2012 Preview– Statement Pieces

Well it is officially Fall. My favorite season, although I am a Spring baby. I look forward to the leaves changing their colors and the air getting cooler; the smell of cinnamon and pies baking.

My favorite part of Fall is fashion. Fall fashion is the best. Not too cold for heavy coats, but cowl neck sweaters, cardigans, skirts and jackets never go out of style. This season isn’t any different. Bright jewel tones, winter white, silver, gold, wine, navy, and black are all the rage! They exude luxury and seduction. They are definitely eye catching.

The nod toward the 1920s and 40s are here and I must admit I am excited. Mixing prints, long maxi skirts, dyed faux leather and a little bit of edge are things to look forward to. My favorite trend is statement pieces. It’s go gaudy or go home. It’s pieces that scream look at me!

I have put together a few looks for you all, based on the Statement Pieces Trend. Next week I have a few more post based on the fall trends along with the continuation of the dress for your skin tone series. Hopefully, you can take some of the looks and cater them to your own taste.

Statement Pieces–Maxi Skirt

This look is one of my favorites. I absolutely love long sweeping maxi-skirts. The print of the galaxy on the fabric makes it even more enchanting. I toned down the color by using a gray cowl neck sweater and mimic the colors in the ensemble in the accessories. This outfit is great for work and play and it whispers, “I twinkle, look at me.”
