Autumn 2012 fashions style is all about wearing classic and traditional clothing piece, but with an accent on either texture, baroque, or geometric style in order to upgrade traditional and simple clothing and accessories with a modern edge. Warm burnt colors of autumn leaves are used to coordinate outfits. The three women of autumn 2012 are Traditional Brit, Elegant Tweet Suits, and Casual Classics.
British-inspired clothes and accessories include men’s-wear for women as well as rugged safari-style items. Fedora, newsboy cap, bomber jacket, biker-style jacket, parka, trench-style coat, and wool coat with hounds tooth print are worn with knee-high lace-up boots, high-heel oxford-style ankle lace-up boots, and knit hosiery. Wool pants in pinstripe, gray, hounds tooth, and other men’s-wear print are paired with V-neck vests or sweaters, ties, oxford shirt, and/or turtleneck. Large tote, doctor-bag style purse, round purse, and duffle bag-style purse are the purse to carry. Wool skirts are longer and floaty, either knee-length or calf-length, worn mostly with knit hosiery, boots and hats. This woman prefers to wear clothes and accessories in shades of brown, olive green, khaki, gray and warm red. Her choice of jewelry is one ring with large gemstone, usually her birthstone or a family heirloom passed down father or grandfather.
Classic and tailored pants suits and skirt suits in wool have decorative baroque design as well as decorative colorful gems, shiny sequins and studs, and fancy delicate details in shiny gold. This woman will sensuous texture, such as velvet clothes with drapery, lacy details, sheer blouses with ruffles and detailed folds, and print in dark bold colors that almost looks Goth. Shoes include velvet loafers and flats as well as high-heel boots. Her choice of jewelry is large fancy earrings with a bold-colored gemstone in emerald, ruby, sapphire, amethyst, or topaz. She prefers to carry a large tote in a shiny color of gold, bronze, or pewter.
Simple, sleek and well-fitted clothes have a modern minimalism style and clean lines. Sheath dresses, bodice dresses, jumpsuits that look like tight-fitted wetsuit, and above-the-knee simple dresses with bold color-blocking style look very simple. Accessories are small and geometric shaped for a modern look in silver, gold, pewter and other metallic color. Few diamond-like gems decorate accessories, but accessories are usually simple without much or any decorated details. This woman looks like an art sculpture installation inside an art gallery, often seen posing like an art sculpture with her geometric-shaped accessories.
