From gold to ochre and everything in between; yellow shades dominated the international catwalks. These tones too seemed very much inspired by jewels. Next to ruby, sapphire and amethyst, citrine looks were presented as well.

It looked elegant on some gorgeous evening dresses (Bottega Veneta, Valentino), but just as sophisticated on short little dresses (Lanvin, Dior). At Gucci the citrine was mixed with red and purple to create a high class fall look.

Check out some of the citrine looks we spotted on the runway.

Trend Report FW2011: Prints Charming

The best way to wear a print item coming autumn is to mix it with another print. Even if you suppose two prints will clash, wear them together. The crazier and brighter the prints, the better.

Whether if it’s letters (D&G), flowers (Betsey Johnson), geometric prints (Hermes) or something abstract (Alberta Ferretti).

Forget color coordinating and just go crazy on the new season’s prints and patterns.

For fall/winter 2011/2012 we’ve moved on from the bright color blocking looks to jewel tones. Still very strong and colorful, but with a little bit more warmth and sophistication in it.

Amethyst, sapphire, emerald, ruby, garnet and citrine are some of the jewel-inspired shades you’ll see this fall. Especially the amethyst colors rocked the international catwalks at Gucci, D&G, Alberta Ferretti and Versace.

Combine this shade with other rich colors and you’ll look & feel bejeweled!

Afraid you might end up looking like a purple Teletubby? Just go for a purple accessory like a clutch bag or a small belt.

If the winter of 2011/2012 is going to be a cold one, these tartan pieces (made from thick wool) sure will keep you warm. Besides the tartan print can be combined with other fashion pieces very easily.

For instance: mix a large tartan scarf with denim pants (Dsquared2), combine a pair woolen tartan trousers with a leather jacket (Etro) or opt for a hounds’ tooth skirt and a sheer blouse (Salvatore Ferragamo). Black & white (Yves Saint Laurent, black & yellow (Burberry) or black & red (Moschino Cheap & Chic). The tartan can be very versatile.

If you don’t wanna go all the way, just choose a great tartan scarf. No matter how you wear it; you’ll definitely have fun with it.


Trend Report FW2011: Sixties Style

After the super feminine fifties and the playful seventies, fashion has now landed back in the sixties. This means: two piece ensembles, miniskirts, high boots, simplicity, color and eye for details (like large pockets and buttons).

Going on a sixties shopping spree? Take some inspiration from models like Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy. Copy their looks and give it your own MODern twist (forget the short hair and wear heels instead of flats).

Opt for thick fabrics that hold structure to create the ultimate sixties look. And don’t go to far with the mini-skirt tough; too short still is not very classy.

Check out the gallery below to see how designers like Burberry, Prada, Calvin Klein and Bottega Veneta interpreted the sixties in their fall collections.

Raf Simons keeps on pushing the color-theme at Jil Sander. After two strong, minimalistic springcollections for him and her where he surprised the in all black dressed fashioncrowd with vivid colors and white T-shirts, his winter 2011 collection seems more in balance. He started with a dark suit, which actually was a mix of purple and black, combined with a shirt and sweater. But soon the colors changed into yellow, white, pink, orange and electric blue for total outfits and subtler mixes.

Simons replaced the mens shirt by T-shirts in shiny, bubbly fabrics and presented them in layers which added more volume and a fresh, modern touch to the minimal style.

We can feel that winter is just around the corner. The days get darker and colder, so we’re really beginning to need our winter wardrobe. And what better way to stay warm than by wearing a piece of chunky knitwear?

Especially knitted vests and cardigans are a big trend this season. Choose one with a cable knit of a nice winter print. And if you can, buy them in an extra long version. That way you can wear them with jeans as well as leggings. Besides you can wear a small belt on top to make your look extra feminine and elegant.
