Hello, Hello, Hello!
It’s about to get serious! Get excited dear Juicalots, for today we will be previewing some of the notable Fall Fashion trends happening on the runway for the upcoming season. Let’s talk about Fall fashion ‘pour une moment’ – chunky sweaters, fur, tights, boots, nubby scarves, tweed……. and the layering…..the sweet, sweet layering! Hands down, my fav fashion season. You? In August, when retailers start to slowly trickle in fresh new fall items, that summer sale section don’t look so hot anymore. Am I right? Don’t get me wrong – I loves me a cheap and cheerful sundress in the summer, but who can deny the allure of a rich tweed pant, or the drape of a luxe fur scarf – after all everyone needs a little fur in their life? Especially if it looks like the Gucci ensembles featured below in the Hyper Colour image board.
Bright, vibrant colour carries through into the Fall season. However, the bold hues that we experienced in the summer season have morphed into an almost technological realm – as if we were viewing bacteria under a microscope. Could this have been the influencial force for the mixing of such unexpected hues? Things that make you say Hmmmmmmm…..
Various types of bacteria magnified to the nth degree produce an incredible array of vibrant colour!
I find this fascinating.
Since we are on the colour train, let’s talk about the second colour trend that was apparent on the runway for Fall 2011.
That being, monochromatic pairings.
Head to toe in one hue – I can’t say I have ever done this! I just might give it a try this season.
What do you think of this trend?
**other notable notes**
-coloured fur is going to be huge.
-at the knee boots paired with knee length skirts. e.g. the DVF looks featured above. Very little leg showing is showing – this is something we haven’t seen in a while.

Trend # 3
Paneled pants were all over the runway in various silhouettes.
I am a huge fan of this trend – however, it feels as though it will be one of those looks that is here today and gone tomorrow.
Do I spy a DIY – Paneled pants edition in my future….perhaps!
This will be huge for the Fall!
Not only do we see the standard neutral snake skin tones (as with the Hermes look featured above), we also see snake skin slithering down the runway in vibrant green and yellow hues.
A nice update for the Fall.
This concludes my Fall Fashion Trend analysis for today. I hope you enjoyed! Just remember this, being aware of the upcoming trends will help you narrow down your search while thrifting. Knowing what you are looking for before you enter a thrift store will prevent , frustration, frivolous purchases, and most importantly – it will save you a lot of time.
I would love to hear your thoughts…..what are some of your fav fall trends?
