Your Fashion Sweetspot

Written by

How you love to dress can point you towards the career of your dreams. When I talk about dream job, I am not talking about the highest paying, I am talking about the job you would love the most.   I was reading a NYT interview with 81 year old female scientist Mildred Dresselhaus and she said,"It's a funny thing. Being a scientist, you don't get a big salary, but it's more than you need. When you're busy enjoying what you're doing, you don't spend a lot of money." We look to the older women in our lives, our mothers, grandmothers and older sisters for advice like this and also fashion cues. One of my fave fashion blogs, Advanced Style, shows older women looking fab dressing for themselves. My grandmother not only told my mother how to dress, like a lady in below the knee dresses, she also told my mother to strengthen the weak link in her chain so that my mother suffered through being a physics major at Vassar college when her heart wasn't in it. It took all her courage to change her major to art history in her senior year.

Fall 2012 fashion trends for women

Written by

 

baroquefashion

Baroque / ornate

In the face of minimalism and restraint, a contingent of designers went the opposite path for fall 2012. Drawing on the complexity we commonly associate with the Baroque movement, they showered the runways with lavish detail, heavy ornamentation and impressively wrought detail. Whether it’s embroidery, tapestry or gold leaf, this trend takes its cues from all things ornate.

schoolgirlchic

School girl fashion

Going beyond the cliches and channeling a number of different eras, the concept of school girl chic gets reinvented for fall 2012. There’s innocence, there’s tough rebelliousness, and there’s the all-important truth that the two are compatible.

neogothicfashion

Gothic fashion revival

Dark fairytales and noir fiction inspire new romance with all things Gothic for fall / winter 2012, heralding in ways to revive all-black outfits. Who said black had to be boring?

plaidfashion

Tartan / plaid

It’s always with us, but there are those seasons when tartan / plaid is more popular than usual – autumn / fall 2012 is amongst them. A subtle variation on the norm, the tartan / plaid emerges into fall with androgynous and school girl variations.

rippeddenim

Ripped denim

Shrugging off its grungy associations (in part, anyway), ripped denim re-ignites on the street in a number of new ways. Expect sophisticated takes that go beyond jeans.

androgynyfashion

Androgynous fashion

We consider this a niche autumn / fall / winter fashion trend. Not because we don’t see it as a bit part of the season’s fashions – we suspect you’re going to see a lot of it. But, rather, we see it as a niche trend because most women’t aren’t going to immediately want to wear it. There’s going to be a lot of resistance to a fashion trend inspired by menswear, but it’s been done before and it’ll be done again.

Peplums

Given it’s a season that is determined to experiment with the silhouettes of women’s fashion, it should come as no surprise to see peplums amongst fall / winter 2012′s fashions.
