Sweater Trend Fall 2012

Sweaters are perfect for the fall as the weather gets colder. Kooky sweater designs were huge for fashion week, including Pop art and poster art prints. Eye catching prints are what you are looking for with this trend. Think Jeremy Scott and his Bart Simpson printed sweater.

Look for cool prints on an over-sized sweater. You can wear them with just about anything, but for an on trend look try pairing one with a leather skirt. You don’t have to go casual, you can dress up your sweater with a statement necklace and skirt, or wear it over a shirt. If you want something a little less kooky, but still on trend, you can try going for a geometric print. Taking inspiration from the 80s these sweaters are a little easier to wear. Have a look in vintage and charity shops for unique pieces. Here are some great examples of sweaters online (click on the images for more information).

Dipped Hems

Still loving the dipped hems trend. They’re really versatile as you can dress them up or down, so they’re a great piece to take from day to night. Here is a great example of what’s on offer online and different ways you can wear it.

edgy with studs

For an edgier look, try wearing this skirt with studded pieces. Whether its a top with an embellished collar, studded wedges or studded accessories.

sports chic

I’ve gone for a bright sports chic look here. Pair your skirt with a colourful vest and accessories. Don’t forget to wear it with wedged trainers! You want to make sure you wear heels or wedges with this skirt to elongate your legs.

sparkle in sequins

As the skirt comes up to the waist, you can get away with wearing a cropped top. I’ve gone for a sequined top and sparkly accessories.

As you can see, this skirt is very versatile. You can go for very different looks and it’s a real bargain! There are also some fantastic dipped hem dresses. Here’s a few I found:

 

Praslin Animal Top Dip Hem Dress

Beautiful sequined top with cut out details. Love the colour, very romantic, perfect for a night out.

Grunge Inspired

What I’m wearing today:

Grunge Inspired

Cardigan, t-shirt, shirt dress and jeans (turned into shorts): H&M/ Bag: Jost/ Shoes: Converse

I took inspiration from the grunge trend which has been pretty big this year. Think plaid, ripped denim, dr. martens, layers and baggy cardigans.

I decided to make an outfit on ASOS inspired by the trend, here it is:
