- Floral Prints Are Big Right Now
- Fall 2014 Marks a Return to the Fashion Trends of the 50s and 60s
- Give the Season and Your Mood a Much Needed Boost with a Hit of Pink
Because the change from summer to fall is so extreme, it often refocuses our attention on Mother Nature and the world around us. That’s why, as the Today Show detailed in a recent segment, one of the biggest trends for the fall is one that celebrates nature. Bright floral print dresses and blouses grant an air of confidence, and they fit in perfectly with the seasons overarching nature motif. Florals can be worn throughout the season, but be sure to pair your favorites with a complimentary or contrasting cardigan and tights once the weather gets colder.
The New York Post reports that of all the recent fashion trends, the return to classic 50s and 60s evening attire is the hottest. Shorter, sleeker poodle skirts in pastel tones pair exceptionally well with collared sweaters and your favorite pair of penny loafers. As with floral print dresses and blouses, this look is harder to pull off comfortably in the later months, but pairing your ensemble with the equally trendy cocoon jacket will keep you warm, without dulling your searing hot fashion sense.
Fall starts out with a burst of colors, but by the end, it gives way to the brown and gray tones of winter. Both for your mood and your fashion, you need something exciting. For the popular women’s lifestyle blog BlogHer, the solution to keeping your spirits high and your fashion sense impeccable is pink. Pink sweaters, pink dresses, pink clutches — from subdued coral to fluorescent magenta, pink gives a much needed lift to the season, making it one of fall’s hottest fashion trends.
