Fall 2006 Trends: 101 (Plus Some Other Things)
I L-O-V-E the new Marc by Marc Jacobs watches! They are all super fun with bulky cuffs, patent leather, and cute little necklace charm timepieces (apples, stars, etc.); all with a futuristic feel to them. Here are some really cute ones:

Didn't you just love the Fall runways? The clothes were just so versatile for work or school, but then you could easily pull off the same outfit for a dinner or cocktail party. Here are some trends that really stood out:
The Wide-Leg Pant
The wide legged pant was a runway (back and on-stage) favorite, but everyone definetely kept the length long (almost baggy), never gaucho-style short! Here are my favorites:
In Louis Vuitton (top)they kept it very fall with velvet, but gave the look a contrast with a bright summery color. Stella McCartney (bottom) also kept it very fall looking with tonal head-to-toe navy.
Lanvin (top) kept the look very refined and classic, while Louis Vuitton (bottom) opted for a trendier, monochromatic tweed look that screamed Fall.
The Skinny Jean
The skinny jean ruled the Fall Runways denim! Fact: There was only one women's wide legged jean on the 2006 Fall Runway, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Suspeder Pants.
I am really noticing another Fall trend: pairing denim with navy pieces like sweaters, shirts or bags (in different shades of navy) and then closed shoes like Luella (top) and Stella McCartney (bottom) did. It looks pretty cute!
These outfits by Desquared2 (top) and Roberto Cavalli (bottom) also caught my eye.
Plaid isn't just for scottish skirt-wearing men anymore, people, now it's tres chic! Here were my definite favorites on the runways:
Plaid jumpers were definetely a trend in the Fall runways, the finishing product looked so sweet and demure! Luella (top) and Michael Kors (bottom) were right on track with the trend.
Plaid, voluminous skirts are yet another trend that was spotted in the runways, making the look "effortless school-girl chic"! I loved How Luella (top) and Alexander McQueen (bottom) designed the look.
Black Patent Leather
Patent leather is an up-and-coming trend right now for Fall; it really is so glamourous with the black giving it a vixen sense to it! Here are some patent accessories I'm really loving:
Clockwise from Upper Left: Bruno Frisoni Patent Platform Sandals, $585; Fendi B. Fendi Patent Leather Large Satchel, $2000; Marc Jacobs Collection Platform Ankle Boot, $895.
Hope You Loved it!!!
Luv Ya, BYE!!!
