Trend Alert: Fall Fashion Preview

With the recent release of all the fashion magazine's September issues, we can't help but be inspired to start planning out our fall wardrobe. Fall fashion has always been our favorite, and we are especially excited for this season's cooler weather must-haves. Here are some of the top Fall 2012 trends that we predict will be major hits this upcoming season:

Jewel Tones
Rich hues such as emerald, amethyst, oxblood and sapphire are sure to bring added depth to your fall looks. An easy way to add this hue into your wardrobe is through jewel tone skinnies or trousers. Zara and H&M have a plethora of colors and styles to choose from (we recently scored a pair of amaze oxblood, shiny skinnies from H&M...in love).

Leather Lovers
One of the most popular, and hottest, fabrics to rock during the colder months is leather. From leather detailed leggings to laminated leather outerwear and dresses, this edgy fabric is an absolute must-have for your fall wardrobe. And with it's versatility and wide array of uses, you can add as much or as little to your look and still exude tough luxury. 

Vision in Velvet
The 90s child inside us is secretly jumping for joy with the return of velvet for the fall. Ease yourself into this trend by just wearing a velvet maxi skirt, some wide-legged velvet trousers or a crushed velvet dress over some ombre tights. But if you really want to make a statement, go on and rock a full-out velvet suit that will be sure to cause some serious double-takes!

Texture, Structure, Embellishments...Oh My!
One of our favorite trends for fall is the overall structure, decadence and interesting texture of the clothing. Not sure what it is, but we love us a stiff and structured piece. Assertive shapes, opulent beading and sparkling embellishments are what make this upcoming season's fashion so exciting for us.

Boots with the...socks??
And of course, a fall wardrobe is never complete without a killer pair of boots. Platform, riding, booties or thigh-highs, we don't think there has ever been a pair of boots we've come across that we haven't liked...must be a Texas thing;) But this season the fashion world is adding a little twist. To add extra warmth and some texture to your look, try pairing tall socks with your boots. This trend is an instant way to look effortlessly chic. How fun!
