with the submission deadline for the summer 2012 Launch Issue of freshlyWORN coming to a close tomorrow at midnight, i thought is was appropriate to plant the seeds for the fall 2012 issue and give all you photographers, designers and stylists [make-up, hair and wardrobe] an idea of what is to come... there are fall fashion themes that always seem to resurface. each fall, year after year, we see pattern, texture and shapes that are eerily familiar, yet somehow different. colour palettes get tweaked; patterns get refreshed; hem lines go up [and down]; and textures get bumped into high gear. so, with that in mind, i give you the freshlyWORN fall 2012 | Issue 2 themes:
FROST: this one is all about texture, the prelude to winter snow with frosty patterns, icy make-up and cozy knits [images source: fashiongonerogue.com]
Jim Dandy: a favorite of mine... menswear tailored for women. think herringbone and tweedy jackets with beautifully tailored trousers and sharp button-down shirts. inject some 'flavor' with quirky ties and hats and voila - you've got a fabulous mix and the ultimate 'girly boy'.

Mad for Plaid: this timeless, classic fall favorite is perpetually resurrected with subtle and not-so-subtle tweaks each fall. the perfect 'back-to-school' pattern, this season we'll be seeing the traditional plaid in a variety of colours, including influences from the summer 80s trend of neon. this is not your momma's plaid!
