2008 Fall Fashion Picks

Funnel Neck
Say goodbye to turtlenecks and hello to funnel necks.  This new trend is most flattering on women with long necks, and a drooping funnel neck will expose the collar bone, allowing you to accessorize with a necklace.  However, those that do not have long necks should be wary of this trend because it will only appear to shorten your upper body.

[Marc by Marc Jacobs, Runway Funnel Neck Shift Dress, $428.00]
Patterns and Prints
Plaid, florals, and all sorts of architectural shapes will be adorning this season’s fall apparel.  Plaid coats are especially popular and they look best paired with tights and booties.  Summer’s floral trend has transitioned into the fall and designers such as Derek Lam and Michael Kors have proved that striking floral designs can also be worn once the weather starts to cool off.

[Peter Som, Plaid Alpaca Jacket, $1,495.00]
The bow trend is a very versatile one, in that it can accentuate a top to make it fun and girly and at the same time it can add a bit of sophistication and flare to an otherwise plain cocktail dress.  Soft bow blouses work great with cardigans and huge novelty bows work great for eveningwear.  Oversized bows are especially flattering for petite women since they add volume to any area that is in need of some extra bulk.

[Missoni, Bessie Bow Dress, $2,365.00]

Goth Chic
Even good girls have a bad side to them. Don’t be afraid to venture out to the dark side this fall, because goth chic is the latest trend for the fall season. New York’s Fall Fashion Week displayed an array of black velvet trenchcoats, vintage laced blouses, and caged high-heels. However, make sure you don’t leave the house looking like Marilyn Manson: This new goth trend has a feminine, fierce, and sexy twist to it.
