What To Wear This Fall... From The Runway

Have any of you started planning for your fall wardrobe? If you're ahead of the curve you purchase spring and summer items with fall in mind. Well, last week I had the pleasure of joining The Fashion Group International of Charleston for their review on 2012'a Fall/Winter Runway Trends.

Emceed by Rosanna Krekel (in yellow, FGI Charleston), with a panel consisting of Stacy Smallwood (Hampden Clothing), Edward Cortese (Departure's Magazine), Cator Sparks (Lookbooks.com), and Karen Giberson (The Accessories Council), the evening was spent discussing what will make it off the runway and to, well, us.

Following the presentation of the 2012 Fall/Winter runway shows, Stacy Smallwood was asked what she plans to bring to her clients in her Hampden Clothing store. Among her answers were the color burgundy, leather leggings, longer hem lines, print on print suits, and colorful statement necklaces.

I have to say, I'm all about some burgundy too...

Oh, and don't forget a little bomber jacket. :)

Is it lame that I'm excited about burgundy? I think I'll pair it with bright pink or orange.

I dont' look good in burgundy and as crazy as it sounds we were in Italy a month ago and I did buy a shearling jacket for the fall. It was a rare splurge but one too pretty to pass up.
