Leather. Slouchy trousers we've seen before, jackets aren't either new, but then so are trends, they come and go. But for fall 2012, it seems to be the fabric of choice, from jackets to capes to trousers, accessories and anything there between. Strap up!

Red. I love the color red, mainly because I think it suits me quite well. But if there was one color (and by color I'm excluding black, white and gray here) that dominated in Paris it was the color of love. In different materials and fabrics from suede to leather, this will be in all the high street stores come september, be so sure.

Suit up. Ah a good suit, is there anything a woman looks as good in, besides perfect fit jeans and the basic tee? This fall we aren't simply going to be wearing a black or white suit, but expect pairing prints and stripes. Head to toe menswear silhuettes and monochrome prints have never brought on more attitude.

Bedazzle. I, as you know, adore anything that sparkles, glitters or screams glam. Get yourself to your nearest vintage store and stock up on all that's beaded, crystal encrusted or embellished. Balmain set the standard high this season, talk about a comeback. Embroidery hasn't been this current since grandma's table cloths.

Winter pastells. Pastells are usually associated with spring. I'm not a huge fan, but I have to say the light shades showcased at Dior and Pucci, amongst others, appeal to me, but with that said, I have to make a point of saying that its all about the material and fabric choices. Sure, wear baby pink trousers, but please, let them be in leather or patent, when autum comes. Pick out that mint green coat, but it'd be nice if it were feathered or fur, rather than cotton or worse yet, polyester. Remember adding an edge, isn't always associated with the color black, fabrics play a big part. And then again there's always accessories;-)
