Fall Fashion Trends

September 7th, 2010

Fall fashions are finally here, and I couldn’t be more excited! Here are four trends that are popular this year.
Tweed
Nothing says cooler weather quite like tweed. The flecks of color and texture in tweed yarns add a sophistication to even the simplest of stitches. Try a matching tweed hat and scarf set for a fast and easy way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe. Pictured: Alpine Wool in Barley, stockinette stitch with garter stitch border.
Military
Military colors add an edge to any outfit. This trend is particularly popular with garments like sweaters and jackets. Consider shades like olive, navy, and khaki. Pictured: Superwash Merino Cashmere in Olive, cruller cable with garter stitch border.
Texture
Wispy textures add a whimsical accent to fall accessories. Use yarns with mohair, alpaca, or angora to achieve a beautiful ethereal halo. Try this trend with a lightweight cowl or scarf. Pictured: LB Collection Silk Mohair in Azure, reversible mesh stitch.
Neutral
Neutral shades are popular for their elegant simplicity. This trend is incredibly versatile, so it’s perfect for everything from sweaters to accessories. For a modern accent, add a pop of color or sparkle to your neutral outfit. Pictured: Fishermen’s Wool in Oatmeal held together with Vanna’s Glamour in Topaz, double crochet.
