10 Fall 2012 Fashion Trends

I've noticed over the past few weeks that it seems like there are so many trends I'm excited about for fall. Here are my top ten trends to try for Fall 2012! 



1. Leather seems to be everywhere this fall, and I'm especially loving leather skinny pants or leggings. Paired with an oversize sweater, it would be the perfect fall casual look.

2. Peplums started emerging again this spring, and I recently picked up my own version to wear. I think it's an extremely flattering style for most women, so I'm excited to see it all over stores.

3. Cobalt blue is such a fun shade, and I think it's universally flattering, to boot! If you're too shy about going for all-over bright colors, a shoe or bag is a great place to start.

4. Polka dots are back in a big way, but the dots are also classic, so you can wear your polka dots for years to come.

5. Winter white gives any coat an air of luxurious sophistication. Break the "no white after Labor Day" rule, and pick up a coat or blazer in the shade.

6. Chunky knits are both trendy and cozy. I love the jade shade of this sweater, but neutrals are a failsafe way to invest in this trend.

7. Tartan was all over the runways in the forms of dresses, coats, and pants, but tartan scarf is a lot more wearable for the real world.

8. Ladylike tweed blazers will never go out of style, so if you want to purchase something you'll wear for years, pick up a  tweedy jacket in a classic hue.

9. Ankle boots have been on-trend for years, but I'm noticing even more lately. I have a pair almost identical to the ones pictured above, and the wedge heel makes the shoes extra-comfortable.

10. Army green is back in a big way. I love the idea of mixing an army green jacket or vest with a sequin top and jeans.

  5. I am actually so happy that chunky knits are a BIG thing this season. I used to wear these every winter with everyone looking at me like I borrowed something from my grandma's closet. For my canadian temperature, I love those cozy sweaters!
    I also love the army green trend.

  7. I've been wanting leather-like pants since Labor Day. Of course, it was still a bit sticky then. Now, it is the perfect weather for them! There are the ones I've been lusting for: http://www.ourwonderlust.com/ourwonderlust/lust-list-labor-day-weekend-shopping.html
