3 trends taking over fall 2011

 There are a few main trends you have probably already started to notice for fall this year. While there are several other great trends that are not on this list (so stay tuned for those) this is the list of the trends I've been seeing the most.

The first one on my list is Polka dots, I love how they are having a major comeback. Not just on clothes though: jewelry, purses and furniture are other merchandise you can spot this classic pattern on.

The images below are from Fashioin week 2011- Marc Jacobs and Diane von Furstenberg polka dot pieces

Below is a collage I made of some of my favorite polka dot items for this season...

The next trend on my list is the maxi skirt. This is probably my favorite trend right now and my idea of the perfect maxi is #2 in the collage below. I love the sheer black, it is elegant yet fun.

It is a huge trend right now to wear a chunky sweater with the maxi skirt. I personally find this look a bit sloppy and would prefer to pair it with a well fitted top/blazer.

The last trend on my list is
Faux/leather/pleather shorts with tights or leggings

Great example of how to pair shorts with tights

I love the idea of being able to wear any piece of clothing all year long. Pairing shorts with a pair of tights or leggings and then adding a cute bootie is a great way to be able to wear your shorts in the winter months.

What are some trends that you have been seeing constantly?
