Fall/Winter 2012

Hi, babes!
So I was just reading through the September issue of Harper's Bazaar (my favourite magazine) and there was an awesome spread on fashion trends for Fall/Winter 2012. :D

Thought I'd share some of these trends with you and how I'd incorporate them into daily wear - included outfit pics as well. :) 
Here's 3 for the week, hope you enjoy them!

1) BAROQUE

We've seen these plenty-a-times!
Inspired by the renaissance period and gorgeously lavish --
brocade, jacquard, textured fabrics and opulent tapestry prints are given ladylike spins.

How to wear: Because these prints are already so bold on their own, pair 'em with something simplistic and lightweight so you don't look too out-of-place. Bejewelled add-ons (accessories or your clutch) will turn this look extra glamorous for after-dark occasions. 

Here paired Whitesoot's flirty-swing digital print skirt with a neutral sheer black chiffon top. 
Devoid of accessories and with basic flats as I wanted a more low-key effect for afternoon coffee. :) 

2) PURPLE PASSION

Seems like the colour to wear this Fall is purple! 
Of luxury, passion, and energy -- this shade is sure to bring royal style to your wardrobe. ;)
Take your pick from all gradients of this colour as luxurious shades of violet to lavender and plum appeared in a long list of designer collections -- from Dior, Erdem, Balenciaga and Christopher Kane. 

How to wear: One sure-fire way to standout is to replace your LBD with a deep sultry purple hue instead. ;) Keep on the lookout for iridescent purple stones and jewels when picking your favourite accessory. Lighter purples for a cheery ensemble with gold-themes whilst darker purples exude a dark-goth-romanticism in heavy embellished detailing. 


These purple-hue cosmic pants matched perfectly for this trend. ;) Preferred a slightly sci-fi / modern approach with the steel and black metal accessorizing. Kept the overall look light and paired the shorts with a flattering high neckline white blouse from Su-Estilo -- discreet neckline keyhole cutting and light pleatings make this a favourite of mine. 

3) COUNTRYSIDE ALLIANCE

A Burberry classic for this season. 
Familiar country codes of plaid, corduroy and utility garments splashed with animal prints and Aztec patterns. ;) And of course, all the Earth and Autumn shades to go with! 

How to wear: It's a pity our Malaysian weather is way too hot to go full steam-ahead with all the knit layering and coats; hence we'll interpret this as a boho style instead. ;) From tribalistic patterns and Amazonian prints -- unleash Downtown chic in laidback tops and seal the look with feather or faux-fux accessorizing. 


As per the previous week, cropped top and denim highwaist shorts combo is a favourite of mine -- 
Peace feather earrings in earth-tones instantly gives this look a boho upgrade; from Deeper Than Fashion. Get the extra long ones for a bigger impact!
