The Best Trends For Fall 2011
Get ahead of the curve and check out some of the most prominent fall 2011 trends, fresh off the runway:
Leather continues to go strong for another fall season, and designers are getting creative by incorporating the material in everything from overalls to suits.
BLACK & WHITE
Yves Saint Laurent
This timeless color combo was sprinkled across many fall 2011 runways. Can’t ever go wrong with this one.
FEATHERS & FUR
Furs and feathers are here to stay, and they’re going even more dramatic this time around.
Piercing cobalt blue is the “it” shade, seemingly replacing spring’s popular red.
Lace is bold yet mature, revealing yet classy this season.
Dolce & Gabbana
From double-breasted coats to boxy jackets and slouchy pants, menswear is being soaked up by women for fall 2011.
Make quite the entrance with this season’s cape-inspired coats. Many of them are floor-sweeping creations, while others are short enough to blow in the wind behind you.
OVERSIZED BIKER COLLARS
Fur-lined biker jackets remain a must-have going into fall, but the flapping collars just seem to be getting bigger and bigger.
CALF LENGTH SKIRTS & DRESSES
Though not the best look for petite ladies (unless you’re going to brave some killer heels), it seems skirts and dresses feel like hitting you below the knee this season.
TARTAN & PLAID
As with many trends being recycled this season, tartan/plaid pieces are more exaggerated this fall.
