The jacket is a versatile transitional item that can transform your summer looks from relaxed to sharp. Invest in one of the latest trends from rugged to tailored, such as the military inspired jacket with patch pockets, the modern slim cardigan, the leather motorcycle jacket, or the classic cotton cool blazer, and layer over a simple white tee, a printed tee or a button-down shirt and jeans to transform your look for fall. To make it more versatile, invest in neutral colors and have fun with mixing colors, prints and textures underneath.
Trousers, a wardrobe staple, come in classic and fresh trends for fall 2010. For the classic cuts, flat front trousers are a hit while double pleated trousers are in fashion as well; make sure you get one with a perfect fitting though. Slim fit trousers and chinos or khakis are the semi casual option, reinvented this season with a brand-new contemporary fit and a wide color palette to choose from. Make sure to personalize your style here by trying different layering combos such as graphic tees with a blazer or cardigan to move from the traditional and classic feel. Black, blue and gray trousers are best for formal gatherings while brown and lighter shades for casual or informal wear.
Color is a main focal point in your outfit. This fall, update your neutrals with a choice of vivid color such from emerald green, cobalt blue and red punch as seen on Lacoste Fall 2010 collection. Or opt for the earthy and wintery tones, with ‘Bonsai Green’ and ‘Indigo’ as seen on the Dunhill 2010 collection.
