Fall Fashion Trends 2010

Fall 2010 is approaching, with its cool breeze and foggy sky. This fall, different new trends are showing up... As for Colors, Gray is the main attraction, seen in everything from soft dove grays to bright silver.

Other seasonal colors include Olive green, Orange, Cobalt blue, as seen at Burberry Prorsum and Kerry Washington, and they really pop up when matched with basic black.

Gold is the metallic color showed on the military jackets, evening gowns and Michael Kors used it in a 9am business meeting styles. This color doesn’t need any jewelry

Purple, you can use this color widely on your evening wear with black accessories

Camel, shown not only in coats but in separates like blouses and pants you can buffer the color with a contrast skinny belt like in Chloe.

Black the basic color you can use any where, any time as evidence by Zoe Saldans’s lacy number and Stella McCartney

Emerald green, a classic and chic color, to wear this trend play with different textures like Oscar De La Renta did.

You can try new Different looks like the Military look with olive green color, including cargo pants, military jackets for younger people .You can mix them also with Orange ,Purple and Brown

The back to school look, you can try the baggy ripped jeans or the shapeless blazer with then men’s wear prints like plaids and chalk strips.

Leather jackets followed with different shapes of zips, also leather skirt for working ladies.

Sheath dresses sleeveless with a vest, long sleeve with animal prints or in basic colors like camel and black also with tights underneath.


Jackets, coats blazers, suits, vests .I love the details, sharp lapels, well defined shoulders fitted tones silhouette and shaped waists.

Jewel tones Shown in evening dresses and military jackets and satin fabrics.

Mixing prints:

It’s hard and tricky but it’s worth to try, to create a new look. Try to mix prints from the same color scheme or mood or go for the shocking different colors.

Longer skirts It’s easy to wear in any place, grab a sweater or a top with a vest on top and go

Chunky knits No fall without it. It’s essential and a lifetime piece, it gives you the warmth insurance and you won’t need an extra coat or a jacket.
