Although the fall 2010 fashion weeks are no where near finished, I am already loving some of the micro trends appearing, especially because in australia we are about to come into our winter. Some of these have been touched on already but they are going to be all the rage come autumn. I am mainly concentrating on the easy to reach ones that can instantly bring new life to my outfits. Firstly we have fur and sheepskin collars on jackets and coats. Pilot style jackets feature heavily (Alexa wore one months ago, of course!) also lots of duffel coats which makes me really happy, so cute and practical. Denim jackets with sheepskin collars, I am pretty sure I had one when i was 13, they are all things that can be found in second hand shops and ebay, or even just buy a fur collar to attach to your leather jacket, whammy!

Then we have another grunge fav, sweater dressing. Just grab any old man sweater and throw it over a fancy dress or even just with tights or leggings, simple. I really love the marc jacobs version (top image) very mary kate with the long dress. Us Irish can keep it real with our Aran sweaters too, I have been waiting my whole life for this!? Middle pic 3.1 Phillip Lim and bottom Proenza Scholuer (one of my top favourite shows so far).
In other trends, you cannot ignore socks and knitted tights everywhere, either slouchy like in marc jacobs or thigh high as seen in the unique collection, knee high seen at karen walker and everywhere in between. Love it. Black is back bitches, big time, the goth look ain't dead yet but its defo in a softer way. Loadsa suits, everyone loves a blazer. Tartan also peppered most shows, more highland fling than lumberjack, is it just me or are there more and more never ending trends? Don't get me wrong I am not complaining. All in all everything so far is looking very promising :)
