Fall 2010 Fashion

Ok, so I’m really not one to allow someone to say “THESE ARE THIS SEASON’S TRENDS. YOU ARE TO WEAR THEM OR YOU WILL BE A STYLE-LESS BUFFOON!” So, I will be taking these “tips and trends” with a grain of (sweeter) salt. I dress how I want to, and frankly, so should you.

On that note, here is some fun, fashion eye candy that may help inspire some delightful fall outfits this season. For the full article, go to Style.com.

1950′s
My favorite! I think the 50′s should be in every season – so yay! Pull out your knee grazing skirts and have some fun with lady-like style. (Louis Vuitton)

Fur
I do not wear fur. Frankly it horrifies me. But, faux fur is cool, so perhaps we can all have a little bit of fun with a funky vest or jacket. (Burberry Prorsum)

Monochromatic Color
Easy enough. I’m loving the combination of chartreuse and olive.  (Burberry Prorsum)

Men’s Wear
I love me a blazer and a tailored vest. Bring. it. on. (Ralph Lauren)

Gold
Bring out your gold jewelry. Perhaps some lamé is in order? (Behnaz Sarafpour)

Long skirts
Well, I can’t say floor length skirts are my favorite thing in the world. But, they can be super dramatic when done right. (Michael Kors)

Layers
Done and done. Pile on those layers. I live in Maine, so frankly, this isn’t a bad idea. It could 85* in September or it could be 50*, so let’s not take our chances. (Christian Dior)

All I know is every fall I start looking a whole lot like an equestrian (an equestrian with a horse allergy – sad I know). So, regardless of trends, odds are I’ll be looking an awful lot like this and this, which is just dandy with me.

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.

    I just love layers! And blazers! And layers WITH blazers! I love fake fur, but personally think I look ridiculous in it. I had the sweetest faux fur coat as a kid and loveddd it, but just not sure I could pull it off these days!
