When it comes to spring and summer you know where your fashion territory is; somewhere between a sweet floral, and a bright safari, all in the hopes that you don’t sweat through your gossamer tank top. But when it comes to fall and layering together a look that will not only keep you cozy, but also looking hot; check out these looks right out of the MAGIC convention to be hitting stores near you come Fall 2010.
All 10 of these looks are right off the MAGIC floor; coming straight to you from FashionSnoops, the insider in all things fashion.
This look is entitled “Body Con” it is a futuristic take on how to wear form fitting garments for the coming fall season. For these pieces look for form, and fit as well as pieces that make you feel comfortable, so when you go for a Body Con look remember that if you are going tight, you don’t always have to go short, or if you do you can always throw on a great pair of knit leggings or patterned tights.
Don’t tell Madonna, but lace is back, and we don’t mean your grandmother’s lace either. This lace is chic, hip and updated, with ready to wear looks that will suit you from day to night. When wearing this look remember that you don’t have to be dressed head to toe, but just throw in an accent. Know that you can always throw on a pair of lace gloves to spice up an outfit or a pair of great lace tights. One rule of thumb though the look is lace not skin, lace overlay is hot hot hot, but an exposed bra strap is not not not. Set up your outfit with a great base cami and you will be good to go!
Don’t think that you will be restricted this coming fall, know that there are going to be some great drapey pieces that will not only leave you looking fantastic, but will also keep you comfy for those days when a pair of heels is almost to much effort. This look is going to be great as you make the transition from summer into fall, keeping in mind all of the great knits that you will be purchasing to wear with sandals this summer.
If you are looking for some power in your suit this fall, know that you’ve got a great jacket in your future. The strong shoulder trend in back in full force. Not only is it playing on the 80′s look we saw last fall, but it is making every cheerleader out there just a sad she didn’t join the band after all. A good tip to remember when styling this look is not to go overboard with volume. If you are playing up your shoulders play up the narrowness of your legs by stepping out in your skinny jeans. Never-ever-ever do volume all over (ok, maybe just that once) it will have you wondering whether you’re shopping or sumo wrestling.
Now another great way to accent a comfy outfit is to go baggy. Now harem pants may not suit every style or every body type, but the idea can be translated to suit every style. The basis of the harem pant is comfort. It is a drop waist pant that can sometimes add a bit of hip to the one’s you’ve already got naturally, so if these pants leave you feeling a bit wider then you would like, try on a trouser pant or a bottomweight goucho instead!
This look can be a bit intimidating at first, but if done right it will keep you looking sophisticated and feeling incredibly put together. Now when it comes to building this look don’t just but your undies on the out, really think about the inspiration of these pieces and go from there. This look is a new take on the slip dress that we saw in the late 90s and has been reinvented by corset style structuring in cocktail dresses, blouses and tops. Still intimidated? Try this look out with a cardigan, another staple for the coming season.
The cardigan has been an absolute staple year round for quite some time now, but what is new about this one? Fit. The new cardigan for fall has drape, and emphasizes the baggy trend. This look not only will help you keep cozy, but will also help redefines some of those not so toned bits we all get around christmas time.
You already stole his jeans, so you might as well take his shirt to right? The boyfriend shirt brings together a few key trends of the season, including the baggy trend. This shirt is subtle in its sensuality and also incredibly easy to put together not to mention it is a Grishley favorite!
Another great look for fall 2010 is Second Skin, this look brings together the white t-shirt that you love to wear with some great new cuts, not only will you be able to bring out your favorite American Apparel V-Neck, but look out for a great cotton cowl neck, boat neck, and dolman sleeve.
Last but not least, the biker look needs to make it on your NEED IT NOW list for fall 2010. The look is much more than just a moto jacket that you picked up this season.It is about the pants! Moto pants will be all the rage once it gets cold outside, looking incredibly chic with their details including extensive top stitching, zippered bottoms, and grommets that will keep you drooling.
