Few fabrics truly say “fall” like denim does, and your source doesn't always have to be jeans. Denim pieces of all kinds are popular looks for fall. Recently, celebrity Fashionistas like Rachel Bilson, Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth have been seen rocking the denim jacket, a trend that this week's Fashionista also sports. The beauty of denim is that it's a simple way to make a feminine look edgy. G-Star RAW showed a variety of denim jackets and looks at its fall 2011 show. Denim is one trend that never seems to go away, so next time you’re shopping, consider investing in some fun denim pieces, whether it be a jacket, dress, vest, shirt, jumper or skirt.
This Fashionista hits on another great fall trend: fun and bright colored tights. Popping up on Libertine's runway and in Corey Lynn Calter’s fall look book, colored tights are an easy and budget-friendly way for Fahionistas/os to add some color to their outfits. This Fashionista’s salmon knit tights also add some texture to her ensemble without overwhelming the texture of her basic black dress. She uses a pink scarf to add more color, sticking to the warm color palette, which is a nice balance to the blue and black of the denim and dress. The little designs on her shoes also have pink in them, which helps tie the whole outfit together colorwise.
Denim and tights are so easy to incorporate into any outfit, so get creative this fall, Fashionistas! Trends should be embraced, and mixing and matching them like this Fashionista does is a great way to show off all of your favorite fall looks.
