Hello fall. It seems that from the mid-August til the middle of September is back to school insanity.  with college kids heading back to campus and parents revving up for the school year, high schooler's practicing for fall sports and everyone running around sometimes in circles to make sure everyone is settling in.



Of course we all have seen the fall fashion magazine previews every time we have strolled down the magazine aisle which typically is near the make-up aisle in the grocery store.



It is my belief that now is the first free time mothers and working women have to catch their breath and hit the mall and local boutiques to see what is new and fresh for the season.



While last spring was all about the mod decade and the swinging 60's this fall has fast forwarded to the mid 70's and early 80's for inspiration. This time period was dominated by the two very different aesthetics: movie stars, socialites and other members of the  glamorous set  who spent their nights at Ian Schrader's Studio 54 in Manhattan, and the angst ridden street kids who feel hard for the call of punk's rage that  had jumped the pond from London's East End to America, New York's punk club CBGB's.



So What Does This Mean For You: A very confusing landscape of style options including:



  1. Plaid, particularly red scottish plaids


  2. Leggings as an alternative to pants


  3. Winter white


  4. The cocoon shape of coats


  5. Gray


  6. Bold Neons in clothing as well as all different type of accessories


  7. Grommets and Stud  Details on all different types of accessories


  8. The subtle return of strong shoulders but not yet the shoulder pad (thank god)


  9. Dynasty inspired make-up with strong glossy lips and eyes and sculpted cheeckbones,much like the famous Robert Palmer video that stirred a great deal of controversy called: She's Simply Irresitible


  10. Dynasty inspired multi-gem colored jewelry, big art deco pieces set off by a contrast between neutral and bold colors


  11. The peep toe booty and all other types of booty is probably the biggest must have of the fall season it can be worn with pants, skirts, and dresses.
