How To Be the Height of Fashion in Fall and Winter

Updated on August 25, 2015

It has never been easy to keep up-to-date with today’s fashion styles and colors.  Every season witnesses a new preference. If you wish to create your own fashion statement, the definitive one for 2010-11 - autumn and the winter, read ahead.

For the coming autumn and winter, the seasonal look is one celebrating the touch of class and the female form. It is a return to the fashionable grace symbolized in the glamorous presence of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. This season, the emphasis is on fabric – oodles of flowing fabric creating full-skirted outfits and gathered pleats. This, after all, is the ultimate way to define female curves.

The 2010-2011 season has a multi-pronged approach. Its focus is not solely on emphasizing our female distinctiveness. There is a recognition of the importance of quality – one of the innate qualities of several admired stars from the classic film era of the 1950s. This is a reminder – a call to arms – to avoid any cheap material. Opt, instead, for quality products, including, among the most popular, natural fabrics. And do not ignore texture. These two are essential for your fall/winter wardrobe.

A singular component of this year’s seasonal look is prints. The trendiest patterns are florals, a perfect reflection of the necessary feminine and even vintage look. Autumnal colors remain the rage, but this year’s choices offer an interesting variation. The rage is all for matching the unusual with temperate browns appearing with various blues, including petrol and amidst a backdrop of dark navy blue a splash of orange makes its stark appearance. These stark and stunning contrasts comprise a necessary part of the current fashion statement.

To help create this new retro look, you will need to have more than a few striking silk scarves in your closet.  Scarves were de rigeur for many a celebrated silver screen star or even starlet during the classic era of film. Draped over the shoulders or swirling gracefully around the head, neck and shoulders, this swathe of fabric created the illusion of allure and glamour. These classic film icons chose only the best. As do the current designers – all made available to you, now. As on the screen, the runway and on you, the very best are the splendid hand painted and hand-dyed silk scarves.

Since we know floral designs are currently popular, it is only sensible to opt for those in selecting silk scarves. This, fortunately, is not difficult. Silk scarves feature an amazing array of floral motifs. Their creative designs are met only by the amazing array of colors. This all combines to make it a snap for you to find and express the perfect look compatible with the coming 2010/2011 season.

Remember silk scarves are amazingly versatile. Their lightness and sheer beauty makes them perfect matches with a wide assortment of different textured and colored clothing. Try wearing them with suede, fake fur or even heavy sheepskin. Do you feel like a supermodel now? Or, try employing them in various ways to emphasize your feminine curves. Drape them, tie them and wrap them anywhere and everywhere to achieve that full-skirted look.

While silk scarves offer you ample opportunity to think about when and where to use them, there is one thing you can forget about totally. This is a severe price tag. There is not one. Silk scarves offer you the chance to appear current with fashion without becoming unfashionably broke.
