2010 Fall Fashion Trend: “Eccentric Ladylike”

This fall, designers are bringing back ladylike clothes with an eclectic twist. Lots of pattern mixing, bold colors, quirky pairings and “piled on charm.” This stand-out look requires fun pieces and a good editing eye. If done right, you will look fabulous, glamorous but nonchalant, and just a touch eccentric. Jason Wu’s look, pictured below, is a neutral take on the “Eccentric Ladylike” trend and is very wearable. Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and Chris Benz took a more bold approach.

2010 Fall Fashion Trends: “Urban Warrior”

For Fall, the concept of the “Urban Warrior” was prevalent on the runway. The Urban Warrior is a strong, successful woman. Think luxe minimalism, black, fine tailoring, architectural construction, and fur. If you wear black often and already have a lot of black clothes, you will probably only need a few new pieces to update your wardrobe and achieve this look.
