Fall Fashion Forecast: Vol 1

Fall Fashion Forecast 2007


Colors to wear

Black is back! Did anyone really let it leave? Women always turn to shades of black to look sophisticated, to look slimmer (of course) and to make getting dressed easier. Fall and winter 2007 embrace ebony, raven and midnight as very chic, but there are colors to look for as well. Shades of grey are the new classic staple for Fall replacing chocolate brown. Grey comes in many wearable shades and can be worn with many colors. If you don't like greys near your face, pick up a pair of trousers in grey.  Add a colorful scarf at your neck with a grey coat or sweater. Check out our new patterns in the Amy Butler Nigella Line. It is chock full of greys mixed with this years hot colors or greens and pinks.


The trendy color for Fall 2007 is magenta/fuchsia pink. Not only does it look fresh and fabulous with greys, it will go with all the browns you already have in your wardrobe! You can go head to toe is this jewel-tone shade of pink, or stick with accessorizing with it. The most up-to-date way to accessorize with magenta is in your hosiery or footwear. Deeply pink tights or trouser socks will put the spice into your fall wardrobe immediately! Check out our new wool coating for that great pink coat you can't buy in stores!


Always a classic, red is a fantastic fall color. In 2007 it's the perfect accent to black and grey. The Italian designer, Valentino, has been known for his shade of classic red for decades. It's not too orange and not too blue. Every woman can wear red; you just need to know how to find the right shade for you. If you have a warm skin tone, look for warmer reds. If your skin tone is cool, look for bluer reds. A great black outfit looks like a million bucks with a little red lipstick!



Accessorize yourself!

Accessories are an important wardrobe update for the fall. Those beautiful browns you love to wear can get an update with the right accessories. Tights are back in vogue, and I, for one, am thrilled! The style of tights popular this season harkens back to the 1980's with bold pattern and color. Have a little fun with a new texture or color on your legs with your basic brown or black footwear. On the flip-side, wear a pair of inky black tights with red pumps. On the more conservative side, grey shoes with the blackest black tights would look fabulous, too.


Scarves are a winter necessity. This season, wear one of the really large printed scarves with accents like fringe and beads on the edges. Take a scarf that's at least 36'' square and fold it in half. Wrap it round your neck and create a loose cowl neck. The more ethnic the scarf looks, the better. Thick, knitted scarves and wraps are also very fashionable and quite practical. The chunkier the knit is the warmer and more fashionable you'll be.


Handbags are the new status symbol. The designer bags have become quite outrageous not only in price, but also in size. If you are looking for a bag that is on trend for fall, but is not large enough to carry a small wardrobe, try a clutch. Once again, we hearken back to the 1980's for the oversized clutch bag. This kind of clutch holds more than a credit card and lipstick. You can carry everything you need for work in this compact bag. For shopping ease, get a clutch with a slim strap to attach to each end. Look for envelope styles with great hardware in patent leather or leather.


Don't be scared and don't hold back.
