As much as I hate to let go of the summer, fall fashion is in full swing. I had the pleasure of attending Holt Renfrew's Fall 2010 fashion preview presented by Barbara Atkin, VP of Fashion Direction, over the summer. No one knows what's in fashion better than Barbara and she covered all of the key trends for this fall. The return of classics set the overall tone for this season. As you all know, I'm a fan of lady-like dressing, so I'm most excited for the camel coats, crimson shift dresses, and the 50's feminine silhouettes. However, with military, leather, and knit all in the mix, it seems like this season has a little something for everyone.
Knit wear: Think Chunky and oversized.
Camel is the color of the season and can be easily incorporated into any wardrobe. Try pairing Camel with heather grey for an updated look.
Animal Print in all forms. Leopard accents in a belt, a clutch, or pumps.
Leather: Give that biker jacket a break and opt for leather separates: skirts, shorts, and tops.
Structured Satchel bags are back with a vengeance. Look for one with a convertable strap (Tory Burch Holland Satchel seen above).
Army Green is a perfect way to add a touch of Military. Sport in your choice of footwear or jacket.
Holt Renfrew teams up with Marc by Marc Jacobs for a great cause this fall. MBMJ tote for $48 is not only a fab find, but a portion of the proceeds goes to VisionSpring. Although the online reservation is now closed, you can still purchase the tote at Holt Renfrew from September 30, 2010 for $48. First come, first serve!
