Latest Trends in Fashion

Fall 2012 is all about Texture, Color, and Unique Accessories.

Seen on the runway and worn in the streets are tailored looks built around a key jacket. This is a great way to add texture and interest to your wardrobe staples. Choose a jacket of any length but make it a statement in interesting materials like leather, tweed, cashmere or a multi-colored pattern.

Feminine touches work with any look; try a silk blouse worn with a cashmere shawl over your shoulder for day or evening. Consider adding a touch of lace or textured hosiery to your usual standby looks for an easy update.

Leather or pleather keeps you on-trend and adds great attitude to your wardrobe. Go for leather in a skinny leg pant, a slim pencil skirt, or a curve hugging leather-trimmed dress for day. Try in a shade of plum if you dare!

Sequins and shine for day and evening add flair, from casual tops to fully sequined gowns.

Colors: winter white is having a come back in a big way. Try adding a black and white patterned jacket or introduce a winter white pant into your favorite fall looks and see how fresh and new your wardrobe feels! Jewel tones; greens, blues, and purples have importance as well. We have many beautiful sweaters in a variety of colors and shades in these flattering tones.

Accessories are always important! Starting at the top, hats are big this year. Hats are available in a variety of fabrics from knit, wool felt, woven fur or whatever version works for you. Hats add a finishing touch to your winter outerwear look with the above suggested options.

Scarves; no matter the season, Aversa clients know just how important scarves and stoles are to complete an entire outfit. This year, fall offers even more options with fur (from neck scarves to fur trimmed wraps), knit cashmere ruffle wraps, and classic mufflers in different patterns and beautiful colors including our hand woven chenille scarves.

Necklaces still play an important role. Styles range from lightweight Italian resins with a chunky look that delivers an unexpected combination of colors to textured druzy stones hanging from rugged leather; a look of feminine meets edgy with long metal links or woven metal necklaces in interesting shapes and varying finishes.

Gloves are a simple addition to a wardrobe that makes a lasting impression; they feel and look so good you won't be in a hurry to take them off. We have many luxurious glove options, including embellished, textured and embroidered leather gloves in addition to our traditional offerings of cashmere-lined classics, knit mittens and gloves. This fall we are excited to offer TouchTec smart gloves. Designed with conductive threading for smart phone users, they’re the perfect gift that keeps hands warm while using touch screen devices.

Footwear. This season, we are happy to introduce the new Dana Davis line of leather shoes and boots from Italy. These shoes were designed for comfort and great style with an invisible supportive insole in all of the season's most beautiful styles. The boots are designed on an invisible platform with a wedge so you have a walkable winter boot option for long days on the go. Stop in and try on a pair of these pumps or boots soon. Your feet will thank you!
