t the London Spring/Summer 2012 fashion shows this season there were all kinds of new trends popping up. From pops of yellow to the always nice in Fall trend floppy western hats, we’re seeing tons of variations on old go-to trends.
Maxi skirts are still in this season but in London new variations of the maxi skirt are popping up. A cut out, sheer, snakeskin pattern skirt gives an edgy feel to a trend that can easily be taken from summer to fall.
Another edgy take on the maxi skirt is created with a sheer look paired with a black leather jacket to bring it into fall. A difficult thing is to take something sheer from summer to fall, but this fashionista below added a short black skirt under her maxi skirt creating a fall feel and giving the outfit more dimension.
A warmer look to try is a thicker maxi skirt paired with a sweater and a belt. This look below brings us back to the pioneer days, and it’s even paired with black heeled boots for the authentic feel.
Floppy hats are big this season; and what’s more quintessentially fall than a western style hat?
Olivia Palermo kept her look completely trendy for the season with a maxi skirt, tailored black blazer, and booties. She added a floppy brown hat to create a simple accessory and keep her outfit in lovely fall colors like dark red and brown.
A different take on the floppy hat is the outfit below paired with denim shorts that keeps the look summery but paired with a longer black blazer, and a simple white polo. This outfit is great for showing the transition period between summer and fall where you just don’t know which season to dress in; a red hat and black blazer for fall with denim shorts and crisp white polo for summer.
It’s all about the Leopard Print
Leopard print has been in style for quite a while now and we’re all looking for different takes on the trend. This season it’s become less about the pattern on clothing and more about leopard on accessories.
Wearing leopard print on your shoes is huge right now, from men’s loafers to super cute pairs of booties.
You can also try wearing the trend on a purse or clutch which isn’t as obvious or too crazy when paired with a simple outfit.
It seems we’re all trying to live in the past when the warm summer sun is out by wearing pops of yellow with fall outfits.
Frequently seen paired with yellow is the color blue; you can mix yellow and blue subtly like on a vest, or go all out and pair a yellow summer skirt with a bright blue sweater.
If bright yellow is too much for you, try wearing it even more subtly by wearing it with another pattern like the skirt below.
This season it’s all about adding new variations and mixing up old trends to make them new again; think of it as summer cleaning.
