Women’s Autumn / Fall 2010 Clothing Trends

60s ladylike

60s ladylike

The silhouettes of the 1950s and 1960s make a strong return, with shapes that accentuate curves and foster femininity. The aesthetic is decidedly Mad Men, the look is versatile and fun. A hip-hugging sheath dress with a below-the-knee hem is the ultimate in hourglass dressing, while the full circle skirt and dress remain at the core of the trend.

winter military

Military fashion

We’ll forgive you if your first thought is “military, again?”. Yes, military remains a trend for Autumn / Fall 2010 but not as you’ve previously come to know it. Following on from Spring 2010 the women’s military trend, like the men’s (below), turns away from the pomp and ceremony of military inspired clothing we’ve become accustomed to, and takes its cues from 20th Century military uniforms. From army green to shearling lined boots, it’s now a trend that’s far more subtle but no less appealing. Read more about the women’s military fashion trend by clicking the link.

fall lingerie

Lingerie as outerwear

It’s not necessarily about wearing your smalls in the street in the cold of Winter, but wearing underwear as outerwear is never-the-less a trend for Autumn (Fall) / Winter 2010. A mixture of sexuality and femininity, the trend encompasses everything from exposed bras and stay ups right through to delicate laces. Given it’s for the colder months there’s also a strong undercurrent of layering lingerie inspired pieces into outerwear. Read up on the lingerie as outerwear trend by following the link.

autumn leather

Leather clothing

We’re in two minds about including leather clothing in a list of trends. Yes, it is on trend but it’s hard to categorise. You see, it works in with so many other trends and isn’t a style unto itself. You’ll wear it with military and you’ll buy hot pants made out of it. Nor is there anything new in wearing leather itself. But include it we must, you see the leather trend is extending into pretty much every other trend for the season. You name it, it’ll be an option for your wardrobe in the colder months. Leather shorts, leather dresses, leather leggings… and more. Click to read about the leather fashion trend.

buttoned up collar

Buttoned-up collars

Refined sophistication underlies this burgeoning trend; so store those sloppy boyfriend shirts and revealing open collars. Whether it’s a sheer blouse, a crisp business shirt, or an elegant shirt dress, the only way to wear it in 2010 and 2011 is to button it up. All the way up.

winter 2010 cutaway

Cut out clothing

Normally a clothing style exclusive to Spring / Summer, the cut out / cutaway made a big impact on the Autumn / Fall catwalks. And it did so for more than clothing, but accessories as well. Seen in a variety of styles, with the cut out pieces worked directly on top of skin or ‘filled in’ with sheer fabrics, the cutaway detailing can be worked from the subtle to the sexy. Designed for the milder days, you can read up on the cut out clothing trend by following the link.

winter socks

Knee high socks

Given that thigh high boots are on trend (see below) and that they can’t be worn every day (unless you’ve amassed a big collection) there has to be an alternative with similar appeal. Hence for Autumn / Fall 2010 you’ll find yourself rummaging through your sock draw and donning a pair of knee high socks. Or over the knee socks. Or thigh high socks. From the sporty to the sparkly, to layerings of socks over tights; a great pair of socks can add that extra, and much needed, eye catching detail to an outfit.

white tights

White tights

When the warm weather turns to Autumn, and Autumn turns to Winter, we often reach for our black tights as a legwear staple. How about trying white for a fresh, bright change? Whether you wear them vintage-style with a minidress and bold colours, or all light hues like a fairytale snow queen, there are various looks you can create.

camel coat

Women’s camel coat

Despite having been popular on the catwalks, the camel coat didn’t make a strong appearance on the streets until late Winter 2010. We blame that fact on the fierce weather that blighted so many seasons. Better in Autumn and in late Winter (with Spring on the horizon), the camel coat is the alternative to the classic trench in 2010. See street style inspiration pictures by reading up on the women’s camel coat trend.

winter velvet

Velvet clothing

Velvet is loved by many, despised by some; but we think the Autumn / Fall 2010 revival of velvet presents some great new options for your wardrobe. How to wear it? We look at four major styles, from the grungette girl to the classically elegant starlet, the vintage-inspired whimsical coquette to the masculine-as-feminine velvet clad Dandy… Quality is key, colours are rich, and it can work for everything from pants to dresses, handbags to hats.

neo double-breasted jackets

Neo double breasted jackets

The neo double breast takes simplicity to a new level; often just with two-buttons, architecturally cut to be striking and often straying from traditional fabrics. The neo double breast is a perfect trendlet for creating simple yet sophisticated impact in a jacket. Click to read about the neo double breast trendlet.

sheer fall 2010

Sheer clothing

Cut out and sheer? No, we haven’t got our seasons mixed up. Yes, sheer pieces are in for the cold months. Yes, we agree that sounds a little strange. But no, it doesn’t look strange. Anything but. Mixed with fine laces, the sheer trend in 2010 mixes elegance with sex appeal – and isn’t that the current, overarching theme to all fashion trends? Come this Autumn / Fall have the confidence to mix your sheer clothing with other trends and key looks (see the bottom of this article for more) and you’ll be onto a winner. Just be conscious of the fact that sheer pieces are revealing, and that means extra care. Read more on the sheer clothing trend by following that link.

winter cape


Having made a strong impression in Autumn / Fall 2009, capes return for this year’s colder months. Seen on the catwalks of Halston and Preen, amongst others, capes in their various forms will be amongst the most elegant of fashion trends. And yet it doesn’t have to be. Capable of being mixed up and styled in a plethora of ways, this is a style that will suit both high fashion and those days when you just want to throw something on.
