What to Wear this Fall

Trends2 Comments

September’s here, the kids are back in school and I’m back to work. Other than some commitments with clients, I was able to take the month of August off to spend time with my kids, go on holiday and renovate my bathroom. Well, I didn’t actually renovate, but I was a pretty good supervisor. Now that I’m back at it and the weather has cooled off, it’s time to start talking Fall trends. I typically start keeping my eye out for Fall trends in the summer and while this year was no different, I really didn’t get into any deep research until a couple of weeks ago.

When I was younger, I wanted a pair of red boots. My mother refused to buy them for me; she said I’d look like a prostitute. Huh? Well, regardless of the implications for my future career choice, ever since then I’ve had this obsession with the colour red. Red ,red, red. I loved everything red. Red screams, “Look at me!” It’s bold and daring. Vibrant and exciting. It’s the symbol of love and passion, desire and hunger. It’s fire and heat and all things spicy. It’s the universal sign of warning and danger, sin and debauchery. Ahh, red. Good ol’ red. Red is sexy. It’s provocative and alluring, stimulating and flirtatious.
