Fall Fashion Trends 2008

English school girl:

This style is bringing out contemporary tweeds and plaids inspired by the 50's. Lean cuts with a slight slouchy appeal is totally flattering to most body types. The trick to keeping this classy look is to keep it crisp and clean. Look for punchy accessories to bolden up the look.

Boho Chick:

Look for chiffon tops of florals and paisleys paired with vintage denim. Long skirts or dresses with leather trenches and boots give heed to the 60's. Accessories to match: scarves, embroidery, wood and beads, and roughed up leather.


Strong colors and futuristic cuts of basic designs make this pared down look very edgy-cool. Keep the colors blocky and simple. Think monochromatic superhero. No need for a lot of jewelry. Go for the less is more approach in accessories. Wear with platform ankle boots, or super strappy heels. Go for extra color with a vibrant purse.

Romantic Vampire:

This goth inspired style is sexy and sheik. Black lace, sheer flowy fabrics, romantic tops with blouson sleeves, long skirts, and layers. Cardigans and tights can be a nice addition. Accessorize lightly because of the amount you have going on with the rest of the outfit. Go for heirloom-type jewelry, dark beads or chains, a touch of metal or leather, and to top it off, sexy very-high heels.

My Boyfriend's clothes:

Mike & Chris Dallas Sleeveless Leather Vest

This is a marriage of preppy menswear and military style. I know right? Look for soft feminine tops with vests paired with trousers. Trenches and leather bombers over lean fit dresses and boots. Jeans and tees with cardigans and fedoras. This style is all about taking the toughness of menswear and combining it with softness.

Accessories of the Season:

Hats and Headwear! You can choose feminine wide-brimmed felt and the cloche or you can go with fedoras and newsboy caps. Scarves and headbands are also big this season.
