Fall for Accessories, Shoes, Hair and Makeup in 2010

It isn’t just clothing that can be trendy.  New trends are always seen with shoes, handbags, accessories, hair and makeup.  As with all trends, adapt those that work for your body shape, personality and are age appropriate.  According to InStyle Magazine – “Fall 2010 is the return of the lady.  Sleek heels and structured bags are sophisticated, refined, and part of the polished look that’s totally happening for fall”.  I’m personally thrilled to see that - but I also see falls share of biker chic and mismatch colors and prints.  Here are a few others for fall 2010.

Accessories – Gloves galore including finger-free gloves.  Necklaces by the neck full.  Lots of strands of pearls.  Bands and bangles by the armful.  Layer your jewelry.  Handbags include bags that match clothes, personalized bags, and logo bags.  Embellishments on bags such as sequin, metallic and fur.  Specific bags include backpacks, frame bags, document or messenger bags, hobo bags, cross-body shoulder bags, chain handles and envelope bags.

 Shoes – Patent is still popular along with suede.  Bright suede with gray or black tights.  Nude colored shoes with bright outfits.  Fringe and tassel shoes with either flat or high-heels. Biker boots with a tough attitude - wear them with leggings or a short full skirt and tights.  Legwear is very important and in a variety of textures and colors. A playful trend seen on the runways were ankle socks with heels. 


Hair – Hair will be seen intentionally messy.  Let your hair go big and wild like the ‘80’s.  There will be lots of volume and rollers are being seen again – just not  in public. Headbands make a comeback.  


    Makeup - Eye shadow application -  apply a bright shadow,  then offset it with a contrasting shade underneath such as  purple with bronze, teal with shimmery yellow, cranberry with mint.   Match your lipstick and dress color but downplay your eyes.                                  

    Wishing you a fabulous fall.  Happy Shopping.
