Fall Fashions and Trends

If you are confident of rocking any color you wear, there shouldn't be anything stopping you. But if you prefer to bring the runway to your closet, you need to keep in mind the colors that the fashion pundits predict will be the fall fashion trendsetters. Fall is usually about warm colors and 2013 is no exception. You can never go wrong with the greens, blues, yellow, and reds during these chilly months. Ditch the black overcoat and go for an emerald one instead. This deep shade of green is luxurious and versatile and is flattering on almost all types of skin. Pair your green coat with royal blue pants and you are sure to turn many heads.

Mossy green is another flattering shade of green. Though it isn't a typical fall color, a nice silk blouse in the color when paired with a camel outerwear (a coat and/or skirt) can make any mom look like the poster girl of elegance. Deep purple and russet orange are two other colors that will be heating up the fall fashion runways in the coming months. Pair them together, and throw in some gold accessories to complete the look. Other colors to watch out for are fuchsia, burgundy, and chocolate.


It goes without saying - the fabrics you choose for autumn should be able to keep you warm. That aside, the fall fabrics should also be stretchable to accommodate the layers that you are likely to wear. The less porous (or breathable) the fabric, the better it is for the cooler months. Wool blends, silk, stretchable twill, leather, fabrics with spandex, and fur are ideal for the season.

Trends 2013/2014:

    Invest in statement-making outerwear like coats or jackets.
  • Say yes to classic prints like hounds tooth.
  • Welcome leather with open arms. From leather trims to leather and wool jackets/tops to colored leather, it is the fabric to lookout for.
  • Embrace military colors and silhouettes.
  • From Givenchy to Versace, everyone is raving about tartan prints. You should, too.
