Three Trends for Fall 2008

Autumn is officially here. Wondering what to add to your wardrobe this year? Here are this season’s key trends:

Jewel Tones, especially Purple
Purple has been my favorite color since my mother bought me a purple fringed suede vest when I was in 2nd grade. I wish I had a vest like that today. Rich, shiny fabrics saturated with color are big this season. Jewel tones are luxurious and make any outfit look 10 times more expensive. Think emerald, sapphire, ruby, and especially amethyst. Everyone looks pretty in purple.

High Waists
Raise your glass to high-waisted pants. They make your legs look miles longer, your waist look slimmer, and they are soooo much more comfortable than the low-waist trend that we’ve been stuck with for the last couple of years. We’re not boys. We have waists. And we should highlight that we are women.

Gothic
Release your inner Angelina Jolie, ladylike and smart but with a wild streak that can shock even yourself. Black patent leather so shiny it looks wet, sky-high heels and boots, smoldering makeup, tousled hair. Visit the dark side of fashion.

See ya in church.
