Pre-Fall 2011 Trends

Spring hasn't arrive yet, and we're talking about pre-fall collection now.
More Colours
Go for more colour this season, go bright, no dull or neutral colours.
3.1 philip lim
Diane von Furstenberg
The it-colour of pre-fall 2011 is red. Designers see red this season. Moreover, red is the official colour of Chinese New Year!! 
The cutting of Giambattista Valli's shift dress gives a contemporary flapper feel
Michael Kors gives us his signature american-style clothings
This red belted halter neck dress gives a twist on the usual Greek goddess draped dress 
Preen's red suit will definitely grabs everybody's attention
Alexander McQueen military-esque red dress
Continuation of Seventies
Seventies is the main trend in Spring 2011, and this trend will not fade soon. Aside from bell-bottomed pants, we can channel 70's through accessories.
Burberry Prorsum wide-legged pants in tweed (another trend of pre-fall 2011), accessories with a leather kimono belt

Jason Wu's simple, retro wide-legged pants
Max Up
Maxi skirts and dresses are still a huge hit in this season. The trend is urban-chic and boho-chic, adds some ethical prints.
Alice + Olivia's light maxi skirts are paired with sweaters.

Burbeery Prorsum's maxi dresses have long sleeve (huge trend) and cinch the waist with wide leather belt

Lanvin gives luxe feel to maxi skirt
Emilio Pucci is the master of prints
Rag & Bone high slitted skirt
See-through, no, semi-through, is the trend for this season. If you are not brave enough to embrace it like Givennchy, you can get a dress with sheer panel, which is not over-sexy. But if you are bold, do wear your maxi dress in this way.
Givenchy's hauntingly beautiful sheer dress, with sweater 
Another Givenchy sheer lace dress
Our safe choice, Oscar de la Renta which is dinner-appropriate 

Yes, fur. We can find all kinds of faux fur in high-street shops like Topshop, H&M and ZARA. Add a little bit fur on your coat, shirt or invest in a faux fur coat or vest.
Burberry Prorsum's mustard green trench spiced with striped fur
Donna Karen's neutral colour fur will go with every outfit
Go for a luxe Rachel Zoe-ish fur vest

Tuxedo is the new party outfit. Put aside your minis and dresses. Tux up like Leighton Meester, Kate Hudson and Olivia Wilde. Find your inspiration from YSL's Le Smoking. Pair your suit with a pair of attention grabbing killer heels.
Armani's tuxedo
Jason Wu's sophisticated, ladylike suit
Louis Vuitton's tweed suit
Alexander Wang's casual suit with turtleneck
Coat is the most important outerwear for fall/winter. Designers offer a variety of coat, ranging from trench coat, pea coat to blazer.
