Fall Fashion Trend Report - Colors

So lately I’ve been obsessing over fall fashion, since the new season is quickly creeping up on us, and I have to admit I’m totally excited to go shopping for my fall wardrobe. I’m not sure what it is about fall fashion, but I always seem to get extra excited about it.

As much as I don’t want the summer to end, it’s time to get back to reality, and now that the back to school shopping is almost over, it’s time for us fashion mamas to do a little something for ourselves. So, I’ve compiled a bunch of great fall fashion trends that I will be sharing with you throughout the entire week. That way, you can start preparing, because a real fashionista always plans her wardrobe in advance.  It may still be a month before fall officially hits, but the Fall-Winter 2011/2012 fashions have already hit the runways months ago, and now it’s time for us to get on board.

Today, I’m going to start off with color trends, because color is always a super easy way to incorporate a trend into your own personal look. And who says fall is only about greys, blacks and browns anyway? While those are the neutrals of choice every fall/winter season, it doesn’t mean you can’t brighten up your look with great pop of color.

Feeling blue that fall is quickly approaching? Well, this hue might actually brighten your day! As an alternative to all black, grey or brown, I’ve been seeing a lot of head-to-toe blue looks with different shades of the color throughout, much like the Diane von Furstenberg outfit pictured below.

Who doesn’t love a hot punch of pink to amp up an outfit, and make a statement. This color can go from edgy to glamorous, as you can see in the D&G and Gucci picks below. If these looks are a bit too bold for you, a great way to incorporate this color into your wardrobe is with a fab pair of leather gloves.

Lavender is a much softer color that transfers into fall really well. It’s light and feminine, and great for the upcoming season. It also looks really nice with grey like in the Missoni and Moschino Cheap & Chic looks.

Red, red wiiiiine..  This evening drink color is amazing for fall! The burgundy looks really classy, elegant, and rich and is the perfect color to infuse into your wardrobe if brights aren’t your thing.

Orange is also a great color for fall since it matches the color of the changing leaves. I’m loving the House of Holland look with that awesome scarf that reminds me of a knit blanket in the family room by the fireplace. If orange isn’t really for you, but you still want to jump on this trend, try an orange manicure.

Even yellow can be a great color to add a little sunshine to your closet. In every shade from mustard to lemon, yellow will always brighten your day, and your wardrobe.
