Fashion and Accessory Trends for Fall 201

Fashion runaways exhibited very strong and bold trends for Fall 2012.  But from the runaways to your store walkways, it’s important to not take each and every fashion trend literal.  As an independent retailer, you want to showcase trend-worthy products in your store without going overboard.  Here we have scoured the fashion magazines and websites to present you with the top must-have trends that you can incorporate into your product assortment for Fall.
Golden Girls 
Whether in apparel, jewelry or accessories, GOLD will make its presence known this fall.  This sparkly trend can appear in accents of sequins to metal trims on cuff bracelets and everything in between.  Offer products in your store with accents of gold and your sales will simmer as well.
Purple Majesty 
The color trend of PURPLE for fall will be strong.  We will see purple popping up not only in apparel, footwear and accessories, but in home décor as well.  For Fall, pull all your purple products together into one strong display or table top and watch your sales POP!
Black & White
Black & White florals make a bold statement.  Be on the lookout for beautiful florals from the strong Damask prints to softer captivating florals in shades of black, cream and grey.  Proud little girls can show off their trend setter side while giving a gift that is trend worthy will score high marks with the recipient.
Furry Fun
Furry faux trim comes in fun little accents this fall.  Here Mud Pie has added faux fur not only to their Winter Warm Up collection featuring scarves, hats and gloves, but even in their Baby collection.  Little girls can be just like mom with their Pretty in Pink faux fur ensemble.  Stay warm this fall with faux Furry Fun.
Wild about Animals
Animal Prints are staple trends for the fashion industry.  You don’t have to cover yourself in animal print from head to toe. Try and incorporate touches and small accents of the “wild side” into your handbags, footwear and jewelry to even your fall parties in the casual entertaining industry.
