So I skinmmed a few September issues, and it looks like the trends this season are:

1. Cobalt blue
2. Oxblood
3. Monochromatic looks (with differing textures)
4. Slim ankle length pants
5. menswear shapes and prints
6. peplum
7. Leather in classic shapes
8. fancy sweatshirts
9. leopard
10. fur
11. lower heels (classic 3")
12. fit and flare silhouettes

Did I miss anything? What are you going to supplement your wardrobe with?

I don't know, but when I flipped through the mags, it looked like fall was more of the same from the past couple of seasons. I might grab some skinny ankle pants, but it looks like I am fully stocked for fall.

Well minus the coat I am thinking of splurging on. This in a teal or dark fuchsia.

Isn't peplum over? I don't think it ever became popular and I see it all on sale/clearance.

Not at all, it is still here. Saw lots of peplum dresses in the stores now, in the new fall section.

I happen to like peplum. But I also found that any peplum in the clearance rack all seemed to be really ill-fitting. Waist too high. Waist too low. Not enough waist definition.... It was definitely clearanced for a reason. The well fitting stuff flew off the shelves.

Ugh, I don't like peplum and it isn't flattering on me. I don't think I've ever seen a person wear that unless it was on TV.
I will stick with what I like and what flatters me. I don't really go for trends.
I like cobalt blue, and have a piece or 2 of that. Fur and Leopard, not a chance.
Fancy sweatshirts? That's too broad, I can't really picture what that is - a sweatshirt with sequins or something?
I hate skinny ankle pants
I like monochromatic looks though, will stick with those.
I just stick with classics over trendy stuff.

I live in the desert so it's hard to follow typical fashion like the rest of the country for fall and winter. We won't be wearing coats, wool, fur, boots, etc most of the year. It'll be in the 80's around Thanksgiving, likely.

God, I find it to be hideous and so unflattering on 90% of women. It died a dead, dead death, here. Just never took off, thank God. Clearance/discount racks are chock full of peplum-laden attire.

I am totally on the peplum bandwagon. Usually paired like so.



The only trick is that it needs it hit your waist and be made of a softer/drapey fabric.

Basically a thinner fabric in a more fitted shape. Or at least fitted in the shoulders and bust. Gosh I saw it in so many magazines. It pops up every few years. I do think it is a good trend though. Super comfy and goes with your jeans, but since the fit is better it does look a bit more flattering than just wearing a real sweatshirt.

Peplum is flattering if it fits right on ruler, pear, or hourglass shaped females. If you are apple shaped, it is terrible.

I think I have a better idea, esp when you say thinner and fitted. I do like that. I can totally get on board with that, esp in this climate. When it's cooler here but not cold enough for coats, etc. Perfect, I love it. I would love it if someone would post an examply or too though. I will see if I can google something. I wonder if I have the same idea in my head that you guys are thinking.

I am an hourglass (I would lean more toward pear if not) but I just can't like it. I don't know what it is. I think it's the belt thing, I hate belts being worn like that. Maybe it's just not for me, not my taste.

I agree. Sure, it looks decent on that model, but I don't think it looks well or moves well on most people. Although I have to admit I really haven't seen it on too many people. The ones I've seen it on, seems like when they sit, even if they are skinny you'd have pudge under and over the belt, having to adjust things. I also hate high-waisted. I don't think that look is flattering on anyone who isn't really tall. At 5'1", high waist is NOT a good look for me.
