Tricky Trends: Fall 2008


Fall 2008 is full of hard to pull off trends. Love them or hate them they're all over stores for fall. Before you decide it's not for you here are some tips for wearing these tricky fall trends. I'll offer a difficulty factor (on a scale of 1-4) and how you can rock these seemingly impossible looks.

1. Leather/Latex Leggings

Difficulty Factor: 4

How To Rock Them: While celebrities are often seen sporting these with tiny tees and stiletto heels this look might not be the most practical for us mere mortals. I reccommend a longer, somewhat baggy rocker/vintage tee or a short sassy dress.

2. Statement Necklaces

Difficulty Factor: 1

How to Rock Them: Bold jewelry is a great way to amp up a boring outfit. Pair with a simple solid colored v-neck tee and jeans to ease into this trend. For a bolder look wear with a jewel toned scoop neck dress.

3. Baggy Boyfriend Jeans

Difficulty Factor: 3

How to Rock Them: Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham have been wearing these around Hollywood alot lately. Take cues from them and pair with a slimmer shirt on top for balance. The best part of these is that you can usually find a pair lingering in your dad or boyfriend's closet!

4. Sheer Blouses

Difficulty Factor: 2

How to Rock Them: This is one of those looks that seems much harder to wear than it actually is. To keep from looking too scandalous make sure to wear a camisole or lightweight tee underneath in a similar color.

Hey Lauren,
I am with you on all but the leather leggings - when worn as tights rather than pants I think they are pretty fashion friendly :)

funny tips! I love baggy boyfriend jeans, but I hate the idea of leather pants...

J said...

not a huge fan of the boyfriend jeans but it is true, you can just grab a pair out of your boyfriend or brother's closet if you just want to try it! statement necklaces are def a do-able trend this season, i'm loving the layered necklace looks.

Those latex legging are hot but I'm too old to go there. I can however rock the boyfriend jeans. *wink*
