Fall 2012’s fashion trends are out and you have just enough time to update your wardrobe! Luckily, Latina fashion bloggers have you covered.
Reading fashion blogs is the easiest way to keep up with changing trends. If you love looking looking hot, but don’t understand fashion week jargon, fashion blogs break down runway trends and make them more palatable for the every day person. The best part about fashion bloggers is that they often model how they would put together an outfit. Visually, being able to see how an outfit should come together makes trying it yourself a lot less complicated.
Fashion Trend 1: According to the Hippie Chic Pao, polka dots are a must this season! In her video vlog (video blog), she details how to create three different polka dot insipred outfits. What’s great about polka dot prints is that they can be mixed and matched with basics as well as other patterns. Worried about being called “Spottie Dottie”, don’t fret. You can always subtly add polka dots into your wardrobe by wearing polka dotted tights or even adding polka dots to your nails.
Fashion Trend 2: Labor day may have just passed, but you can wear white. This season, go with the brighter the better when it comes to white. Viva Fashion explains that even the classic white button up shirt can look Fall forward as long as it is paired with other wintery fabrics like wool or chunky knits. As a forewarning, the blogs says to beware of pairing lighter colors and fabrics with your winter white clothing article.
Fashion Trend 3: Prints, Goth, Leather, “Oh my!” Did 50 Shades of Grey influence this Fall’s fashion trend or what? KC You There and Mia Sanchez-Pellot clearly lay out how each of these trends look on their personal blogs. Before attempting this Fall’s prints, goth look, or leather read the following pointers.
First off, prints that are bohemian simply mean prints that are one with nature or the world. Since bohemian prints are “in” there is no surprise that animal, ethnic, and vintage prints are in supply. Next, gothic does not mean that we are recommending walking around in an oversized black trenchcoat and a choker. When attempting the gothic look, think “dark romance”, not high school rebel rouser. By making gothic romantic, wear dark colors like burgundy, navy, olive, or black. KC also recommends pairing the dark hues with leather, lace, and even velvet.
As if these trends weren’t enough to satiate your fashion cravings. You can have even more fun by double dipping trends. Dare to mix and match polka dots with dark colors, or leather with patterns. The only thing that could hold you back is your own fear and by now you should have none. With Latina fashion bloggers by your side, you have step by step tutorials on how to stylize your new look.
