Stack Up to the Stars with Layered Looks This Fall
Comfortable fashions make everyone look better. The truth is that the better a woman feels in her own skin, the better she looks. She holds her head higher. She stands straighter. She smiles more easily. Who can know if designers had this phenomenon in mind when they put together their collections for fall 2012? Perhaps it doesn’t matter. The fact remains that fashions for fall 2012 are big, bold and, above all, comfy.
Knitwear and layered looks are the key ingredients in fall fashion this year. Bulky sweaters and fishnet knits both layer casually over a turtleneck shirt or scoop neck top. Knit dresses are definitely in vogue, and their comfortable charm oozes with sensual cozy style when paired with a contrasting knit wrap, opaque tights and sexy knee-high boots.
The toasty warmth of knit layers isn’t the only way fashionistas can celebrate the change of seasons this year. Scarves in bold or bright solid colors wrap sensuously around a woman’s neck or shoulders, emphasizing the feminine mystique while shrouding her in layers of comfort. For less cumbersome layers, women can look to popular layered necklaces. Available in metallic or earth tones as well as popular bright colors, these accessories serve to lengthen the neck and tastefully emphasize the bust.
Stacked heels and platform shoes are everywhere this fall. Their bold, confidant and powerful looks combine with other popular layers in this year’s fall designs to bring out a woman’s most winning attitudes. When her feet are happy, she will be too.
Layering this season goes beyond adding pieces of clothing or stacking jewelry. Layering patterns on other patterns also looks great and delivers bold, confident, hot-off-the-runway looks for both every day and special nights on the town. Pair these classics with plaids, hound’s tooth designs or one of the new paisley patterns that have hit the runway this year. Patterned scarves in similar hues look great with these sweaters as do many of the new, popular patterned trousers. Dress up the country-casual look of a rustic sweater with a patterned skirt, and complete the look with a pair of opaque tights and clunky shoes.
The layered diversity of this year’s fashion brings flexibility and individuality to each outfit available. The power of fashion brings inner beauty to its peak. Fall 2012 is a great time to stack up to the stars.
