There is a little while longer until summer is officially over. And though Jamaica's climate seems to be stuck between rain and sunshine we can always take a thing or two from the Fall 2012 trends. The transition will be easy since colour was already in for the summer. The big difference is trading in the shocking colours for jewel tones like Jade and Cobalt. Make use of that floral skirt/pants you own and tone it down with deeper hues. Darker lips will be in as well. And, of course, you can never go wrong with a black and white palette in the fall/winter seasons. The metallic trend will get even bigger with jeans. The colourful jeans we've been wearing in the summer will expand further into creative wonderland with coated, metal and patterned pants. The peplum trend continues and so does colour blocking. Sheer fabric like lace will be even more evident along with gilded accessories like nail polish and belts. The boot-shoe and buckles will also become a trend to watch for and go wild with faux animal print bags in a range of colours. I cannot WAIT to see how the fall fashion season unfolds :)

Peace, Love & Blaze,
