Twitter-views: Top Fall Trends!

Sunday, August 2, 2009

I don't consider myself a "trendy" dresser. I like what I like and I wear what I wear... But it's always interesting to see what the glossies and blogs have to say about seasonal trends. For this week's Twitter-views, I decided to ask some of my fabulous, stylish Twitter friends the following question: "What top three trends will you be rocking this fall?" Some of the top choices included leather, black, 90s grunge, statement footwear (over the knee boots and ruffled shoes), hardware (studs, zippers, etc.) and sequins (my favorite!). Here's what they had to say...

@fastidiousbabe biker glam is definitely on my list

@Audrwey sequins, tight boots, leather! ;o)

@juicyincouture hmm that's a hard 1. A lot of the fall trends are remixed from spring 09 like those Harem pants. I'm going the classic route.

@jesspgh 1. PLAID (not tired of it). 2. 90s Grunge i.e. floral dresses and Docs (luv u Angela Chase). 3. And tights in all colors!

@ABeautifulLife 90's minimalism and global gypsy for fall 2009 for moi

@Misslizzymarie Over the knee boots, motorcycle jackets, and acid wash.

@gabbyshewrote I'll play! : one shoulder dresses, neon, and pink & red.

@Annabelle42 Simply: NEON.

@modediktat 1) fur vests + jackets 2) leather leggings/pants 3) BLACK

@TheBeautyFile overtheknee suede boots, studded black leather booties, dark vampy makeup!

@joulesstar Leather, (of course!) sparkle and shine, maybe a few scattered studs.

@ashleeflanagan for fall- subtle sequins mixed with a lot of black and neutrals fall is going to be very minimal with statement accessories

@fairykikka my top 3 for F/W skirts & wedges, berry lips and gold accessories, hairbands & tons of black (as usual!!)

@DonStugots blue jeans and black button down shirt.

@BitsofBeauty Only 3? Ruffles on shoes (wearing them now), embellishments like exposed zippers, sequins, beading, and the like & lace

@BitsofBeauty Also, my trend picks this fall:

@queengilda sequins, leather, spikes, spandex and heels. that's gonna be my wardrobe.

Alexander McQueen Fall 2009 via

@alexandrakeller my trends to rock this fall: my Frye boots, tunics (from summer to fall) and my jewelry :D

@hanako66 leather, over the knee boots, coats with ruffle detail to girly up the first two!

@StyleTelevision I'm loving black and silver for fall. I'm sick of gold. Also lots of Russian-inspired outerwear.

@katandjules It's hot in AZ, so rocking the urban boho trend going from sandals to moto boots as appropriate! And flared denim. I ♥ it.

@BetseyJ Creepers. Cuffed Jeans with cute ankle socks that show.

@MidtownGirl grey suede OTK boots. denim leggings. statement jewelry. yay!

Chinese Laundry boots via Chinese Laundry website

@Fasshonaburu HARDWARE! I am obsessed with studs, zippers & chains, especially on shoes and purses!

@lovelydisco oversize everything, lots of black and skirts.

@craftyasparagus My fav. fall trends: Seattle 90s & (fake) leather...& high waist skirts (I KNOW they'll be back-maybe in leather?).

@craftyasparagus OH! And Docs! (I never stopped loving them.)

threeASFOUR Fall 2009 via

@aliciakan Pearls, bows and brooches.

@IdStyle leather details, borrowed menswear pieces and girlie add-ons like vintage inspired hats and pretty cocktail jewelry pieces.
