Fall 2010 Trends

Fashion trends are always relevant, but it’s important to be comfortable with whatever pieces of clothing you choose to wear. Feeling trendy for fall 2010 is achievable whether you choose to wear one of the popular colors for this season, indulge in a camel coat, or slip into a pair of cargo skinny jeans. For a simple breakdown of the trends, make sure you watch to the end of the video with trendy outfit ideas.
Popular Colors: Olive Green, Camel, Deep Purple, Bright Red, Black!, Chocolate Brown

For Fall 2010, clothing manufacturers will move away from producing a lot of floral prints and concentrate more on textures and draping. That doesn't mean that floral print is out, but when you buy new pieces, try to focus more on textures. 
Textures include: Cut outs, mesh, lace and metallic that mimics sequins

Fashion trends have a way of recirculating every couple decades. This Fall, expect to pay homage to the 60s with longer hem lines on skirts. In addition, the messenger bag from the 40s and the clog shoe from the 70s are definitely back. Look out for inspiration from 90s grunge as well.

Trends: camel coats, military inspired anything, below the knee skirts, full-length jumpers/rompers, cut out/mesh clothing, fedora hats, leather and lace, messenger bags, tall wooden clogs, chunky sweaters, kitten heals, skinny cargo jeans, distressed jeans, red coats, pieces tailored like menswear, rare baggy pieces

Nail Polish Color Trends: While there are some brighter oranges and blues, for the most part think washed out and pastel shades of blue, purple and mint. Also look for gunmetal, olive green with glitter, and colors with serious gray undertones. OPI's new line captures the trends perfectly. 

Jewelry Themes/Trends: Statement pieces (especially necklaces), chains, antiqued gold/bronze, orchid/turquoise in addition to the colors listed above, 60s inspired headbands

I hope this list was comprehensive. On a whole, Fall 2010 can me described as moody, rich and subdued. However, the trends and pieces really are wearable. Thanks for reading!
