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.

About Ces’Ari Garcia Delmuro

Born and raised in southern California to Mexican-American parents, Ces'Ari pronounced Chez-ah-ree, has always had a passion for learning a little bit of everything while maintaining close cultural ties. She graduated the University of California, Irvine with campus wide and political science honors attached to her B.A. in Political Science. The honors titles came from completing a senior thesis on the shared infrastructure between the United States and Mexico. Rather than jumping straight into law school after graduation, she decided to first give back to a community that had similar demographics to her own and thus, joined Teach For America (TFA) and relocated to Arizona during the height of SB 1070 tensions. While in TFA, Ces'Ari earned her M. Ed. in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Science from Arizona State University and completed research on HB 2281, the ethnic studies ban in Arizona. The injustices that the Latino community faces propels Ces'Ari toward furthering her education as a means of gaining a louder voice to speak on behalf of the Latino community. She is currently studying for the LSAT and plans on attending law school in fall 2013. You can find more of Ces'Ari's writing on her personal blog.
