Fall fashion trends: Texture and color
If you are looking to update your wardrobe this season, check out these fall fashion trends. Look for wonderful textures and colors this fall, including feathers, fringe and fur.
Bold, colorful pendants, large cocktail rings and thick cuff bracelets really stand out this season. Brightly colored gemstones in all shapes and sizes add a splash of color to your look. Accessorize right by sticking with one statement piece and keep the rest of your jewelry very minimal.
Fringed boots and shoes
Boots and shoes featuring fringed trim are a popular choice for fall. Though it may seem like a throwback to the 70s, fringe is very hip right now. Choose ankle boots, tall boots and even pumps embellished with fringe. The Steve Madden fringed Bijoux pump pictured here is available at Endless.
Berry and plum
Shades of purple, berry and burgundy are hip for fall in everything from shoes to lipstick. Purple suede is all the rage in handbags, pumps and accessories, while berry and burgundy apparel and cosmetics are top choices. Check out these pretty purple fashions.
Romance is back in a big way this season, from ruffled blouses to lace dresses to satin handbags. Feminine, romantic shapes and fabrics are the way to go for fall. Try pairing a romantic blouse with an edgy studded boot for a unique mix of style and texture.
Fur and feathers
Whether it's real or fake, it doesn't really matter. Fur is one of the wonderful textures this fall. From fur-collared coats to fur hats to fur-trimmed handbags, you will see alot of fur everywhere. Also, look out for feathers. In Sex and the City: The Movie, Carrie had a Ferragamo pheasant feather handbag. Though you might not want to spend a couple thousand dollars for the same bag, you can find feather bags on the cheap at thrift shops and estate sales. Bumpy ostrich handbags are also popular choices.
Knee-length full skirts are good options this fall. Choose a dress with a more streamlined bodice with a full skirt for a party or other special occasion. However, it's not all about fullness. Many designers have created beautiful sleek, straight sheath dress this season as well.
