Falling into fashion – Fall Trends 2013

I can’t believe fall is just around the corner!  I have to say the weather has been cool for August and I am really enjoying it.  Being able to wear skinnies without having the fabric stick to my legs and  a t-skirt without over heating!  So I thought I would dedicate my Monday morning to research the fall trends for 2013…Harpers Bazaar, Vogue, and Glamour’s reports made me uneasy at first, but I think I am getting used to the ideas.


For one thing, my awkward stage in life (tween years) are coming back to haunt me.  The fashion from the 90’s are shinning though – plaid, repetitive pattern and platforms are on the forecast and I don’t know if I want to go back.

So the more I looked into the trends and away from the Runway’s over stated looks, I started to warm up to some of the new trends of 2013.  Using gray as the neutral in an outfit – kinda in love with this one, I love Gray!  Using darker shades of green (you know, since green was the color this year) it is my favorite color I am definitely ok with this one.  Leather accents to give a punk look in a classic way – I am willing to work with this but in a faux way. Using earthy tones  – This might be the easiest for me since I tend to gravitate towards earth tones with my clothing!

Now I focused my research to handbags trends – I am liking what I am seeing!  Check out these examples of:

This research has definitely given me some new ideas on what to work on next!     I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer and look forward to the fall!!
