What's to come for Fall/Winter 2011 Trends!

I know we're barely into the Summer months, but and that's a BIG but..hehe!! 
As many of you know, I LOVE the Fall Season and why?... 
Well, the weather is beautiful, the leaves change color, there's that certain something in the air annnnnnd...

Here's a lil sneak peak at what we all have to look forward to...

'70s Fashion
*Handbags: Leather Satchel's and/or Hobos.
*Belts: Big and/or skinny leather belts over skirts or maxi dresses.
*Boots: Leather Knee High and/or Thigh High/Over the knee.
*Jewelry: Lots of it!! Lots of rings w/stones, piles of bangles, 
long pendant necklaces and/or strings of beads.
*Hair: Long straight split down the middle part, sleek longer bob, lots of bouncy curls and flowy hair.

(Faux)Fur Fashion Trend

On the runway there was everything from 
hats, coats, collars and scarves.

Coats: Long, short, thick, or fine.

Fur trim: Collars, cuffs, 
hems of jackets and skirts.

Bell Bottoms: 


So, the big question is....
Are skinny jeans still in style?...
YES!!! They aren't going anywhere for quite sometime!

For the 2011 Bell/Flare Bell bottom think '70s Flare.
 NOT baggy/boyfriend jeans! 

Wide-leg pants:
Trouser/Palazzo Pants

*Wear heels! It makes for a much for flattering look!
*Always wear a slim fitting top, if you want to wear a loose
blouse make sure you pair it with a waist cinching belt!
*If you want to go for that '70s look go for the: 
Wide-leg trouser, platforms and a big floppy hat.
*You can also go for a '40s pin-up look: 
Wear wide leg sailor pants, 
nautical stripe top and espadrilles.

Solid Metal Jewelry
Cold, hard, solid metal shaped in the forms of cuffs and collars, and whether it's gold or silver, copper or bronze, it's a strong look for the now and one that will be carried into Fall/Winter 2011. Take cold metal pieces and wear them with soft knits or furs(faux) or pair a solid metal choker with a sharp jacket or coat. Look for these metals: Gold, Silver, Copper, Brass, or any hammered metal that has texture!
