Ladies, may I present the list of 5 absolute fall 2012 must-have items. Update your shopping list and have friends calling you up and strangers calling after you for fashion advice!
Voluminous coat + scarlet
In fall 2012, bold proportions reign supreme providing larger than life impact. With many wearable variations of the unfitted silhouette that emerged from the catwalks, the oversized coat in a bold colour (scarlet, to be specific) represened the couture aspect of modern fashion. Made of high quality wool which keeps you especially warm, these trendy styles can be worn anytime – opt for fitted clothes to create a cool contrast.
Ankle strap pumps + patent leather
For a touch of Hollywood glamour, look for sleek minimalist pumps that combine all the season's shoe musts. Think about the trend-worthy ankle strap pumps that lend contemporary appeal down to their directional pointed toes, patent leather and a strap that wraps around the ankle. Wear it to ground the season's abbreviated pants or add edge to a frilly frock.
This luxe jacket that takes its cue from the best fall 2012 fashion shows is the essential addition to your outwear arsenal. Double-breasted cut, epaulettes at the shoulders, a tailored fit and military style appliqué patches are up in arms for you to get you warm in a chilly day! Wear it as an interesting contrast to ladylike ethereal fabrics and bold lips.
Dome bag + burgundy
An iconic style then, perfectly on-trend now! With a classic dome shape and rich leather in a new fashion shade (burgundy!), a rounded top-handle carryall is a perfect statement of simplicity, elegance and functionality. The ladylike dome bag takes your style uptown with its polished look and makes another smart investment – this style won't go out of fashion quickly.
Peter Pan collar
The head-turning contrast detail is an elegant companion to the simple LBD, blouse or a top. Lightweight and lovely on the eyes, it takes on a look of style and sophistication without breaking the bank and gives a bit preppy look especially when in monochrome. Go for ready-made pieces with this cute detail or choose a quick topper via the statement Peter Pan collar necklace to complement your demure ensembles.
