Fall/Winter 2008 Fashions

Fall is now officially upon us, so here are the trends for this fall and winter:

Plaids are still in but you can branch out to more bold plaid prints. The choice is yours with how bold you want your plaids.

It may be the fall but florals are still in, but mostly as small prints.

Animal prints have become bolder with bright colours, although you can still stick with the natural animal print looks.

Girly, cutesy prints are still in (hello kitty, bunnies and such) so don’t throw away those pieces from your wardrobe.

Cable knits will keep us warm; one sweater from Alloy gives this classic a new vibe by having the sleeve ¾ long. Don’t be afraid of ¾ sleeves, you can choose to wear long sleeve shirts underneath.

You don’t always have to go dark in the fall/winter; bright blues and other bright colours can be found all year round.

Prepster looks are huge thanks to the Gossip Girl characters. You don’t have to go all out prep school chick, just a preppy sweater with virtually any top underneath and a pair of jeans can look good.

With the weather getting colder in the Northern hemisphere, hats and scarves become major staples in outfits. We also begin to wear tights more and more. This year opaque tights can be found in tons of bright colours. There are also tights that have patterns.

Those are the basics!
