Posted on 23rd October 2012 | Fashion Trends

The FashionTV panel have put their heads together to bring you the top trending looks for this Fall. You can catch 24-hour live coverage of all the latest catwalk looks straight to your screens with FashionTV and online.

Beautiful in Bronze

It’s Fall, the leaves have turned, and so have our wardrobes. But while talk of the trending town is more gold than a James Bond villain can point a finger at (yes, Goldfinger), we turn our attention to the richer, stronger metallic of bronze.

Whether you choose to wear it as a statement accessory, rock a head-to-toe look, or simply paint your nails with the metallic brown, going for bronze this season will bring out a warm-glow in you.

Amongst many of the designers advocating the bronze attack are Hakaan, Haider Ackermann, Rochas and Temperley. While the exquisite use of dip-dyed bronze hair at Prada was the sight to behold on the Fall 2012/13 runway.

Supersize Me

Oversized is the new size this season, as we gear up for an extra cold winter. So rather than stuffing and squeezing your layered-look into a fitted Winter warmer, the designers have gone for a practical solution by modernising the classic wardrobe piece and supersizing coats.

Cocoon coats and pillow-sleeved jackets are all the rage this season -- but beware fashion followers -- If you’re going to go supersize, you’ll need a few handy tips to stop you from looking like a sack of potatoes!

First up, is contrast. If you choose the billowing look make sure it’s neatly contrasted with slimline trousers, bare legs, or a pencil skirt to prevent you from drowning in the look. Next up, big hair. This is the key to preventing your head from looking the size of a small tomato. Finally, always keep one equation in your head: B (big) + S (small) = OS (oversized success)!

Clever Cut-Outs

While covering up is dignified, a clever cut-out is a sexy and simple way to send out a seductive message this Fall. And hurry up on in there before it gets a bit too nippy! Just take a look at the fun cut-outs from Carven, willow dresses from Jil Sander, and lace splicing from Elie Saab. And be inspired!
