Fall Fashion Trends

It’s the time of year I lust most after clothes – when all of the fall fashion magazines have arrived. Fall/Winter 2006 collections are out in stores and people are starting to wear them. Today, the Silicon Valley Moms Blog is featuring fashion posts so I decided to publish the list I compile each season for what’s in style. (See also – my post, “Fall Trends That Go Overboard” today on that blog.)

Rather than finding this an annoyance and thinking half my wardrobe is outdated, I look at it as an opportunity to wear things I haven’t worn in a while and combine outfits in new ways. It’s a chance to find a few new gems while shopping and have a little fun.

  2. >Nice rundown of this fall’s fashion trends.Of course, it reads like a list of “Clothes and accessories in which I look crappy.” Great. 🙂
