2010 Womens & Mens Fall Fashion Trends

It's back to school, which I guess calls for new clothes. I've been asked several times what the 2010 fall fashion forecast predicts for both girls and guys. Feeling so inspired, I decided to share my thoughts on the matter...

I don't claim to be a know-it-all in this arena, but this is my passion and I spend quite a large sum of my spare time researching and reading up on the latest. What I do know is basically what I've read, just to make that clear. Also, if you disagree with thoughts on this season, that's great everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I don't really care :)

First of all lets get something and style are different and to quote my good friend Tavi (not really my good friend, she just knows her stuff and i stalk her blog), "If you’re stylish, you’re creative and original, and if you’re fashionable, you know how to look attractive and uncontroversial."- wornfashionjournal Of course she's a style queen, but that's not to look down on those who tend to play it safe on the fashion lines.

Secondly, you don't have to sacrifice your personal style to the demands of our culture. Fashion is most importantly self expression, so be you.

Trick: Make this fall all about the accessories, for both Men and Women's fashions. Accessories can either make or break an outfit. They are also the most practical items to either store away for another season, or get rid of for good. If you're smart about it, you can find an inexpensive accessory to circulate throughout your wardrobe, making several distinct looks.

Fall 2010 Colors (not limited to just these hues)

Instead of abiding by runway fall trends, I'm going to make this list as practical as I can, pulling fall looks from stores that are affordable to the normal-everyday person. [All photos are taken from;,,, and ]
