As we gear up for the nearing fall semester, it is time to start transitioning our summer fashion staples into our fall wardrobes. Before we begin back-to-school shopping, let's take a look at what summer pieces we can make fresh for fall. It is a trend we have grown acsustomed to this season that has brought class and sophistication to most of our wardrobes. What am I talking about? Well, the summer trouser. It's a look that channeled the fashion icons of the '70s with a nod to Studio 54. Long, lean lines and majorly flared legs were in full force this summer and guess what – the drama of the '70s will continue for fall.
Take a look at this Fashionista's sophisticated style in her wide-leg summer trouser. The emphasis here is on the pants that create such long legs and a silhouette that commands our attention. For the last few weeks of summer, pair your trousers with flowy, feminine tops like this Fashionista has done. Continue to play with floral patterns and bold color. If you are looking to create a long leg, wear your trousers with a wedge or platform sandal. This Fashionista is wearing a super cute pair of summer wedges. I found a similar pair at Target. The Fashionista finished off her look with a slouchy carryall bag. A great bag with structure will be an essential for the school semester. I love the Cambrige Satchel Company. Its bags are a classic shape and come in so many colors, like the one here.
Hint: Dressier fabrics and saturated colors will bring the trouser trend into the fall season. Take a look at the Celine spring 2011 runway to see a slouchy, loose trouser style that will be cool for fall. It's a little like a pajama pant with its drawstring and satin details. The slouchy trouser will give you a more casual option; wear it with a pair of Keds sneakers or Steve Madden oxfords and you will be well prepped for class!
