“Stumped by some of the trends this season? Need pro styling tips on
how to wear fall's hottest looks? You asked and I answered – and as I
always do, it’s served straight up.”
I want to wear leopard prints, but how?
“I’m a big fan of leopard, always have been. Trick here is to tame
the meow-mix by wearing only one piece of leopard print at a time.
Pair leopard pumps with your LBD. Or a cheetah-print scarf over that
camel coat. Head-to-toe leopard works on Edith Prickley. On you?
Not so much. ”
What are the hot colours this season?
“ Jewel-tones. Gorgeous, rich shades of cobalt blue, emerald green,
ruby red, deep teal, golden mustard and amber. Most complement
each other beautifully since they’re all in the same colour family. Also
nice to pair jewel toned pieces with neutrals like black, charcoal, navy
and camel.”
What are the nail polish trends for fall?
“ Deep, burnished metallic colours look new this season on fingers
and toes. I love the rich gunmetal greys, teals, dark greens and
berry shades, from simmering, subtle sparkle to all-out-glitter. And
remember, the hot nail shape is the slightly pointy oval.”
What’s new in tartan and plaid?
“ Not your highland-fling kilts, but instead classic plaid is showing up
in unexpected places, like hats, footwear, and handbags. Tartan-
trends? Unusual plaid colourways are fun, like a purple plaid mini or a
flannel tunic in fuchsia tartan. ”
Are watches cool again?
“ Watches are this year’s ‘statement piece’, and like any jewelry
item or accessory, they make a big difference in finishing your look.
Oversized, chunky, man-sized timepieces are fun, from techy chrono
to the classic tank watch, with hot colours, heavy metals, crystal
embellishment and ceramics being the trends to watch for.”
