Okay guys I know you probably are really annoyed I haven’t been posting. I really need to get on top of it I am being lazy so I put together this post to get you kids happy. Yes, it’s my favorite time of the year where new trends are emerging for fall and fashion week is just around the corner. I love dressing for fall because it is all about layering and adding extra accessories instead of taking them off for summer. Doing research for fall I realized there are a lot of trends that you are going to see from last year but also some new ones that you are going to be introduced to on here that you can start scoping out before the other ladies know;) Little by little every week I will be introducing new trends to try and be on the lookout for.
I couldn’t be more excited for this trend. I am a huge fan of classic looks from the 40’s-60’s so anytime they are get repeated ( which is often) in our age I get super excited. I am sure Mad Men is responsible for bringing this trend back around into 2010. Think long full skirts with a clinched waist, which is evident in both Louis Vuitton and Prada Fall 2010 collections. As far as colors go think bright pastels, florals, and stripes.

The Granny Skirt

Longer, usually gathered or pleated, often with a ruffled hem, the granny skirt is as it sounds: a young take on grandma dressing. It falls rather than puffs out too much and is more understated – think sixties office girl.”- Fashionising.com
Pair these kind of skirts with tight fitted tops to avoid looking like a ball of fluff. You want to accentuate that waist and bust of yours.
60’s accessories to be on the looking out for:
– Kitten heels( heels that are half of the typical height of a heel)
– Bold red lipstick if you can pull it off or for those who can’t like me light pink lipstick ( i love underage by MAC)
-Cat-eye sunglasses ( always a favorite of mine)
-Waist cinching belts, clutches, gloves, headscarfs
– SEX HAIR, or beehive if you want to get crazy
60’s the Modern Way
Fashionising has some amazing tips on how to mix the new with the old.
- Follow Dries Van Noten‘s lead for the ultimate in effortless modernising of the ’60s full skirt. Throw over a boyfriend blazer with a turned up collar, or a souchy sporty sweat top, and slip on a pair of on-trend sunglasses.
- Try the same silhouettes but with a shorter hemline, such as above the knee or shorter.
- Add a pair of knee high socks that can just be seen below the hemline.
- Look for pieces in fabrics like leather or sheer tulle for an edgy update on the look.
- Pair a full ’60s skirt or sheath skirt with a cropped top, exposing a little midriff.
- Wear with one of the more modern 2010 hair trends like a messy topknot or effortless side braid.”
