In this economy, it is not possible for every woman to indulge in fall apparel shopping. Watching the runway trends closely, I have observed that some trends and styles can be pulled off effortlessly with low-priced items and even with some staples that are present in almost every woman’s closet. This article aims to point out the least expensive women’s fashion trends for fall 2010.
#1 Inexpensive Women’s Fashion Trends for Fall 2010:Sharp silhouettes in classic materials and conservative cuts
The recession always affects the designers too. The fall 2010 is seeing many big names showcasing classic materials and conservative cuts. Although most of these pieces have very defined and sharp silhouette but the choice of material remain the good old tried and tested for the staples like coats and business suits. The good thing about buying something from Tommy Hilfiger’s, Marc Jacob’s, or Elie Tahari’s collection is that the piece will not go out of vogue in many coming years. Brighter chances are that one might have something (may be a trench coat or a pant suit) resembling to a designer’s piece already in the closet.
#2 Inexpensive Women’s Fashion Trends for Fall 2010: Mid calf socks
With knee length skirts or shorter dresses, this season the runway is consistently seeing mid-calf socks worn with ankle boots or even stilettos. The key is to wear the socks in the color of the shoes. Who said fashion is expensive?
#3 Inexpensive Women’s Fashion Trends for Fall 2010: Combining different prints and patterns
Gone are the days when a plain blouse was a must with a printed skirt or vice versa. At least one can stop worrying about that in this fall season. A hot fashion trend of fall 2010 is to wear pieces in disparate prints and patterns together. However, the key is that both pieces in different print or patterns should have common colors. For example, it is completely fine to wear a red and rust nautical blouse with a red and orange floral skirt. Peter Som’s collection for this fall can be a great inspiration.
#4 Inexpensive Women’s Fashion Trends for Fall 2010: Combining plaid and prints
Models wearing Jason Wu’s and Organic (designed by John Patrick) pieces combined plead and prints on the runway this year. This trend looks spectacular and is relatively easy to sport. Another plus point of this trend is that the wardrobes of many women will not require any additions for this trend to be followed.
#5 Inexpensive Women’s Fashion Trends for Fall 2010: Black and white
Count yourself lucky if you have a ‘black and white’ printed, patterned, or pleaded piece to wear this fall. The black and white combo seems to have inspired the designers heavily this fall. Even the good old, black and white polka dots are back in vogue. This year Dolce and Gabbana’s collection includes a long sleeved polka dot dress in sheer silk. Christopher Kane’s prints and Jonathan Saunders fall collection have black and white jackets, blouses, and dresses.
