Even though the sun is still trying to kill us with heat, fall is right around the corner. Check out this Fall Trend Report so you can be prepared for the cool season on its way!

 1. 50's and 60's Flare

This season there seems to be a flashback to the 50's and 60's fashion. Sweet heart necklines and the defined waist are back and ready to be worn!

I can not even explain how many furs and feathers graced the runway this season. Neadless to say these fabulous garments are going to be one of the top trends this season.

3. Matchy Matchy 

I have never been crazy over wearing matching colored pieces together. Now that I have seen these pieces the trend is really starting to grow on me! This season be sure to wear matching colors together. The right clothes will make quite a statement.

Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to photograph my interpretation of this trend, but I think you get the picture. : )

4. The Corporate Man

I LOVE THIS TREND. I have always loved taking feminine items and giving them a masculine twist. This season designers have shown the business side of the woman in these wonderful suits:

Outfit: Bitten jacket, Forever 21 skirt, Mark Jacobs ruffle top, my Fathers belt, American Eagle flats.

5. The Touch of Versailles

When I first saw this trend it reminded me so much of when I visited Versailles this summer. The detail of the gold in each of these garments is so exquisite and when I look at them they give off a real sense of royalty. Love Love Love.

Outfit: Dries Van Noten Sweater, Vintage Belt, Vintage necklace made into a bracelet, Velvet BCBG skirt, Gold sandles from payless and regular brand socks.

6. Maxis not Minis!
