Good Taste, Great Style: My Top 5 Fall Trends

November 1, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds


This season has all the key ingredients for a fab fall wardrobe!  While the color palette still has all of your favorite basics, the tones are a lot more bold and dramatic.  I’m personally loving the slightly gothic vibe this year.  Below are my personal five favorites!

Metallics

Such an easy way to glam up any outfit particularly with accessories or shoes.

Leather

Combine some leather and metallics to pack a powerful yet sexy look.

Oxblood

Oxblook (or as most would call it burgundy) is rich, warm and sophisticated.  Whether it’s an oxblood mani, oxblood blazer or even a lipstick it will definitely stand out!

Cap Toe Heels

This can easily fall under the metallic trend because some of the most popular shoes for fall have metallic tips – but they also come in suede, patent leather or even stripes!  Pair them with a skinny pant and turtleneck for sleek modern look!

Retro

Think tweeds, cardigans and oxfords.  A throw back to the 60’s but with more of a modern fit – perfect trend to hit those vintage shops!

Yoplait® Original is proof that classic is always a good choice. We have more than 20 flavors that burst with the delicious, flavorful creaminess that isn’t just good, it is SO good, especially now that it’s made with natural colors, flavors and sweeteners. What can be more than SO good? The fact that Yoplait® Light is made in more than 20 flavors that contain 90 calories and 2 Weight Watchers® PointsPlus® value each.  But the best part is the inspiration these fun flavors can be when it comes to fashion – how about a Key Lime Pie clutch or a little black forest cake dress. We believe the best fashion statements come from flavor inspiration.  What flavor inspires you? Try a new one today and use it to plan your outfit tomorrow.

Fall Into Maxi’s

Transition this Summer’s hottest trend – the maxi dress – into your Fall wardrobe with these easy tricks of the trade:  Throw on a blazer; put on your favorite boots; pick bold patterns! I personally love to throw on a pullover sweater to give the outfit a quirky vibe.  Another great touch to get more mileage out of your maxi dress this Fall (or any seasonal outfit) is to accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!   Change up the bag; add a scarf or a belt; I also like to simply wear seasonal colors to match.
