Fall 2012 Fashion Trends at Neiman Marcus

Last week I attended an intimate event at Neiman Marcus in Topanga that merged two things I love - food and fashion.  While munching on oatmeal crème brûlée and crab cake Benedict, I watched as a bevy of chicly-clad models sporting red lipstick and polished chignons paraded through the modern Neiman Marcus Cafe for a fall trend preview filled with sophisticated and luxurious looks. It was quite a treat to see the garments and accessories up close. 

So what's trending for fall 2012 and what caught my eye? Well obviously, the cherry lip is a key beauty trend this season. As far as colors, rich shades of navy, green, and bordeaux are key for fall. Menswear influences take over in the form of pant suits, and prints ranging from graphic to digital to animal are paired with luxe outerwear and bold jewelry. Brooches are officially back as a new way to accessorize and update dresses and jackets. Velvety textures, mixed material jackets, and studded/crystal accessories all made a strong showing. (I'm still daydreaming about the Balenciaga jacket in the 4th photo down.) I can imagine a chic city girl wearing a lot of these pieces to work, to a business meeting, or out on the town to a glamorous party. New season, new trends. I highly anticipate incorporating some digital prints, embellished handbags, and mixed material outerwear into my closet over the next few months.
