Tina’s Top 10 Trends for Fall & Winter
(continued from page one)
4. Leopard Prints: Fabulous Fashion for Over 40 or 50
C’mon. Leopard is always one of the top trends. Leopard looks good on older women. Leopard camouflages fat and other flaws. And, leopard’s a fun print that goes with everything. If you're a woman over 50, you can wear something like these sexy leopard booties when you want to dress to impress... when you want to look like a hottie... but still appear ladylike.
Just make sure to grab your date's arm if there's ice on the sidewalk and you're wearing stilettos. (If you live in LA, these are the perfect alternative to hooker boots.)
5. Scarf Trend for Fall:
Buy a scarf or two. You can update those same old boring classics from your closet (or Target or Macy's) in several different ways with several different gorgeous, scarves. Think like a Parisienne. Use cute accessories to make an outfit look different every day.
Hot scarf prints include: mixed prints (print on print), plaids (and giant plaids), monochromatic (black and white) prints, Asian or Moroccan prints, and small repeating patterns (which are great for mixing and matching with other prints). There are lots of different types of edging that will add cool texture to your outfits. Look for scarves with tassels, raw edges, crocheted edging fringe (great for boho style), and other types of fringe.
And, follow my rules... get at least one scarf in the hottest color of the season, “Your Color”.
6. Coat Trend for Fall:
The hot coat trend for fall is "a coat that fits". If you are an average Boomer Chick, forget about big coats, oversized coats, weird-shouldered coats, etc. If you are young, tall, and thin you might be able to pull off the big coat trend. But, if you are young, tall, and thin, you already know what styles you can wear... anything and everything.
I'm sorry if I'm offending any of you fashion designers, but I'm not a fashion editor who works for a big company, so no one tells me what to push. And, I have to "tell it like it is" because that's the way I am. No one pays me to try to sell something that I don't think will be flattering.
Hey, I'm sorry if you have a warehouse full of oversized coats, but the fashion biz is a tough game. Maybe younger chicks will love big coats, but I don't think that the average suburban mom (of any age) is going to wear that style because a coat like that might make her look fat (or fatter) and life is tough enough without adding minor problems. I could be wrong about big coats... time will tell.(article continues)
