Wouldn’t it be refreshing and inspiring to see an innovative fashion week presentation that would have all walks of life in awe? It may not involve models walking down a runway or staring in a street-style saga but something that those who may not care much for fashion shows, will want to watch again.
For the last two years, the color blue in all it’s shades and glory, has been the color that ruled us all in one form or the other. It’s one color that works all year round, unlike a canary yellow dress for winter or a head-to-toe dark grey outfit for summer. The cycle of fashion only allows one color forever (black) and every other to have its five minutes of fame, but somehow blue has managed to stay on for fifteen minutes, and will add another five minutes of spotlight time with some great pieces we’ll be drooling over come F/W’12.
Little Girl Blue come make your stand,
The yellows are too bright the grey too bland.
For which shade of blue shall she wear,
It does not matter, for they all will make others stare.
Fashion is forever changing and revolving. We are always looking for the designer of the season, the must have colors and trends. This creative, vicious cycle that we cant get enough, starts with the F word, lets keep it clean, can now include a preemie fall season, written into our fashion weeks yearly schedules, I’m was all to happy to scan through the collections looking for must-haves pieces. Pre-Fall collections of 2012 will be giving us, colors that will not blend in, there are evening gowns that could make anyone feel like a Hollywood star and outerwear that can fit, either more than one person at a time or will allow your boyfriends or male friends to borrow your coat without that tight feminine feeling, that’s if they’re into the over-sized look. Let’s see the trends I gogo gaga over.
The Outerwear Shuffle: You have some time before these coats hit retail store, So take that time to figure out what you can rock underneath these marvelous coats.
With the oversize coats, it can mean heavier sweaters underneath for people who are in colder climates. It is also a great look for someone who likes to wear outrageously high heels with tights. Also for those ladies who want to surprise your boyfriends with the naked or lingerie clad body underneath the traditional trench, try the oversize coat instead. New year, new sex looks. Just coat, tights, heels and a handbag.
With the oversized coats, why not some big sleeves to match? Tight at the wrist and lose on the top, just the way I like my sweater sleeves. These types of sweaters have always been my favorite during the colder months. It hides the flabby arms one may have right after the holidays and during the hibernation season, and it’s works for the extra layers you may want to wear underneath the sweater.
Red will do a body good ladies. During a season when most people will be wearing darker colors, forget just the pop of color on your lips, or an accessory. Color is direct for Pre-Fall 2012 in the form of the color red. Go for it all the way baby!
The wider the pants legs, the higher the heels to be worn, the taller we can be! That’s how I’ve always looks at wide leg pants and the different versions designers have given us from their pre-fall collections will allow us to wear a lot of heels, platforms and wedges that can take us to new heights.

About a month ago, I decided to challenge myself by create my own version of The Fashion Book, but mine would focus on my favorite things for the coming seasons of spring/summer 2011. At first it seemed easy enough, since there were several items that started with the letters C, D, F and S in my memory bank. The easy street changed pretty fast when letters G, O,Y and Z stalled me for days. Would of been easy to ask for help from friends, but this project I wanted to do on my own, for as long as it would take. Even though this project took a couple of weeks to find something for each letter in the alphabet, including images, writing tidbits and creating templates, I’m happy that I did it all by my lonesome. Now, let’s see if I can do this again for Fall!
