Fall 2011 is about to hit the runways, and from the previews of the collections, we are in for a fun season of strong silhouettes and strong color.  Minimalist style rules, with strong shoulder lines, bold colors (think royal purple), and strong shoes and boots.  Sound fun?  Check out the YSL collection for inspiration.  The juxtaposition is a sophisticated bohemian look.  Think sheer floral dresses over textured tights, with an oversized, giant-stitch knit cardigan.  This creative look can be found in the Marni fall collection.  Textured and opaque tights are featured in nearly every collection, so if you put them away from fall 2009, pull them out for September.   Feeling like it’s all too, too far into the future?  No worries!  Spring is nearly sprung, and there will be plenty of lovely looks to sport!
