-Aah, the madness goes on

Hey, guess what today it?

August 1st! Summer, where art thou?! For most of you it is just the middle of summer, Whatever. For the fashion world, it it the begenning of Autumn. Yepp, time to plan your fall looks and start shopping ASAP. That is if you actually want to be smart and stylish. Now, while most people are out enjoying their last few summer days, fashion editors have a lot more on their plates. From the "Latest fall trends", "F/W 2010 Runways", and "September Issues" there is a lot to absorb in such an amount of time. These Fashion Editors are trying to load us up on all of this pretty quickly and it can sometimes become a bit overwhelming.

According to Style.com and Net-a-Porter.com (two of my lovelies when it comes to fashion(:) here are some of the upcoming trends for this fall:
*Fifties-Sixties Fashions - - - - -

Say goodbye to that 80's revival we all cringed about and say hello  to the lovley 50's and 60's. Hourglass silhouettes are front and center with a combo of bustier, curve-hugging, and below-the-knee pencil skirts. Let's also not forget the kitten heels that comes with said decades! This is one trend that I won't actually mind trying out a bit this fall.

*Animal accents - - - - - -
Rawr! Animal like clothes were everywhere on the F/W runways. So of course they're bound to be everywhere this fall. It includes everything from fur, leopard prints, and Camel everything. (Coats, boots bags , etc.) I personally wouldn't mind a chic camel coat this winter and it will probably make it onto my must have list. As for some of the other animal like pieces, I  like them but won't be dying for them this season.

*Menswear-inspired (Again!)

I remember a few seasons ago when androgyny was everywhere! From boyfriend jeans, to boyfriends cardigans, to slouchy t-shirts, and oxfords. Well, it seems that menswear is back but with a bit more....class. Instead of slouchy jeans and cardies, the designers opted for structured blazers, oxford shirts, and very straight leg pants. It kind of also ties into that futuristic minimalist look that has been coming around as well. (*Alexander Wang!*)

*Military

This is one of the trends this fall that makes me want to kind of yawn. I don't like it at all, and i doubt I'll be able to pull it off anyways. :P
 The end.

*Goodbye short, hello long!

It makes me happy to see this lovely trend appearing. I have always adored long skirts and the fact that the fashion world is just catching on makes me go "um...Hello! Where have you been?"

There are loads more trends popping up here and there everyday but those were just some worth noting. I rarely follow trends on a daily basis like some people who claim to be "fashionistas." I like to see what is "in" one season and try to incorporate my lovely stlye with the things I like. No body should expect me to change my style every time fashion trends evolve. That would take loads of money, time, and effort that is worthless because you just come out looking like a clueless follower.

Anyways, I am so excited for fall to come! I'm such a nerd when it comes to back to school shopping and getting new things each season! I'll be posting my lovely wish list soon! Kay, well bye(:
