This season we are seeing some really great trends with a nod to the 70′s with a color, texture, and animal print focus.

You can take advantage of color blocking and use it as an economic way to keep your costs in check and not look as though you are dressing in costume.

Color blocking as pop art is not what you want.  Think understated and the use of solids such as a solid knit top such as this Neon Buddha
Olivia
pullover paired with your fave black pencil skirt.

This outfit makes for an easy color block that provides the right amount of balance without going over-the-top.  Afraid that it is too much? Use the darker color on the bottom and the brighter color on top.

Want more bold? Pair texture and print but be sure to stay within the same color family and never mix two of the same prints.

Animal print pieces are still going strong this season. Remember with animal prints to wear one print at a time as well so as not to look to busy.

We love this Simply Silk jacket with its animal-like pattern and a tad bit of beading for texture in the most appropriate fall shades. 

Both pieces are $109 and $110.  Cost-conscious, appropriate and on trend for Fall ’11~
