This is a rock-n-roll takeover.
Living each day one at a time.

We went from honeysuckle pinks, to screaming coral, to neon yellows. To..now..


And well, of course the occasional cremes, nudes, houndstooth, buffalo plaid in all different shades of colors, to multiple prints assembled together.

However, one of the main trends I noticed while looking through some of the shows (btw: I feel so late talking about Fall 2011 runway trends..since, they came out way in the beginning of the year) is the rock-n-roll/imma kick your ass type of look. It's wonderful! All of us have that sweet personalities where we show our floral prints/soft colors and pretty pink lips, then once winter hits the badass in us comes out to play. Winter puts everyone in the blues.
I am not complaining though!
I am in love.

Trends I noticed (and need to add to the shopping list):

I. Sheer
(as seen in blouses, and maxi skirts)

Sheer has been in for such a long time now. It has beginning to become a staple in everyone's closet for their more risque days. Sheer is so delicate and beautiful, yet has such a sexy statement to it. As if you want to show the public you're naked body..but not.

Mugler rocks the sheer blouse by pairing it with a simple bra underneath. I am pretty sure not all of us are as crazy as that model is..but we can all admire the beauty in the sheer blouse. As for in department stores, the sheer blouse is seen everywhere, but are more modest as they are not as sheer as the runway. To get to the point, a sheer blouse..preferably an over-sized sheer blouse is a matchmaker in heaven with a maxi skirt.

Speaking of maxi's, sheer is also staying for another season. Parbal Gurung breaks through the black by presenting a blood-orange maxi sheer skirt. I absolutely love the way these maxi's flow. It is so elegant.
Maxi skirts can be best paired with higher platforms (if you're short), and can also take a walk on the wild side by pairing the maxi with a combat boot or even a converse. Maxi skirt's are very versatile.

Perhaps, you shouldn't just yet put away the sheer!

(seen in jackets, and pants)

There is nothing bad about you, unless you own a pair of faux/real leather pants. These have also been popping up everywhere in retail stores, as well as Barbara Bui, Mugler runway shows. I also been coming across of a lot of fashion blogs/tumblr lusting over the day they can slip a pair of these back on for the winter.

In my personal opinion, it does not matter which route you take with the leather pants (such as faux or real). With also most of us being in college at this time of the year, we do not have much money to spend on a pair of real leather pants! The right styling could make any pair of 20$ leather pants look they belong on the runway!

III.  Maxi Dress dressed down

As seen in mulberry, the maxi dress dressed down is, perhaps a rule that should never be broken. We all look at the maxi dress as only having a place to go type of dress. At least, I do. Not until I over-heard the other day of how well a maxi dress can be turned into a simple-fall-every day outfit. I feel as if I need to try out this "trend" and create a look for my own to wear out to college. I just need to find that perfect black maxi dress and the perfect boot!

Eventually, when I get a break from life..I will put together these outfits and showcase my journeys of finding each piece on here!

As I hope to see on everyone's blogs their fall favorites, and adventures!
