Faux fur, leather and bright jewel shades are what every fashionista will have on their want list! What ever shape or size you are keep up with the trend and find out what gorgeous key pieces will suit you and keep your wardrobe totally fabulous for autumn 2011.
Colour can be pulled off by anyone so there is no excuse not to brighten up your autumn attire and splash out on some luxurious jewel tones. Keep in mind when shopping around if you're a top heavy apple or a beautiful bottom heavy pear the deeper richer emerald, sapphire and amethyst tones should be worn on your larger half and the brighter eye catching ruby red, period and turquoise shades on the other.
Leather can now be seen everywhere from the high street to boutique stores and is a key piece this season. Figure hugging leather mini dresses will show off a sexy hourglass figure and look stunning on tall, slender boyish bodies. Leather jackets on the other hand can be worn by anyone as long as you stick to a style that suits you, pair one with a pair of jeans and a plain T for a casual day look. One of my favourite leather looks this season is leather shorts; they can be dressed up or down, found in black, browns and array of other colours. Along with all of the above they can do wonders for an apple shaped ladies showing off shapely legs while balancing out wider shoulder providing you don't buy them skin tight!
You will either love it or hate it, but it either way faux fur is back and here to stay....for now! From floor length coats, hats and cuffs to boots, shoes and bags you can't walk into any clothing store with out spotting some fur. Faux fur jackets are very popular at the moment however they are very hard to pull off, unless you're very slim and tall or a bottom heavy pear they are easily capable of adding pounds to your appearance. If you are top heavy or a curvier woman make sure you defiantly try before you buy, they may look very glam but if they don't suit your shape stay away. Sticking to fur hats, scarf's or even fur boots and bag is sometimes a much safer option that you will feel much more comfortable in and a great way to ease you into the fur trend without overdoing it.
