Stylist Lindsay Weiss Talks Fashion Tips and Trends for the Season

Sunday, October 16, 2011’s Editorial and Style Expert, Lindsay Weiss gave us tips on Fall trends and universal fashion guidelines every aspiring fashionista should take note of.

Lindsay Weiss has an extensive fashion background as an on-air style expert starting as an accessories editor in such outlets as Haute Living, Niche Media, and L-atitude. She is also a frequent contributor at and appears regularly on NBC’s “Gossip Gram.”

On Overall and Emerging Fashion Guidelines:

o Mixing Colors: “I think you can mix brown and black and I think you can definitely mix black with navy, which I know people get confused about. “

o Showing Skin: “I think one thing to be careful about is…you don’t want to expose too much. You don’t want your stomach showing, your legs showing, pick one area to expose. If you’re doing the midriff, you don’t want to wear a mini skirt…I always make sure I’m wearing a really long skirt with it, or you can pair it with a blazer as it gets colder. I think if you’re showing too much, it’s not too tasteful.”

o Nail Polish Color: “We’re seeing darks. Really, really dark colors that have a little bit of a shimmer to it. So it could be an emerald green, it might be a navy, even a burgundy, a lot of brands are doing that. I also think the nude we saw from Spring is going into Fall, where it’s that neutral, really nude color.

o On Upcoming Fall Trends: “As we transition into Fall, it’s all about color; deep, rich jewel tones, splashes of color, even neons paired with black. We’re also seeing really rich materials like velvet. Mixing and matching; polka dots are huge. Mix them with your stripes, with your animal prints, it’s kind of like, anything goes. If you’re doing velvet, and there’s a fine line between cheesy velvet, where you see the light in it, or a really rich velvet. You want it so it’s not too heavy and not adding bulk all around your body.”

o Accessories: “For Fall, we’re really seeing chunky jewelry. The more the better, the chunkier the better.”

o Skirts: “We’re continuing with the long skirt, also the pencil, which is below the knee…You can also wear the “middy” – it’s a mid-length skirt, but it also still flares out a little bit, so that’s easy to walk in. That, you can pair with your blazers, your sweaters, and it goes right into winter. I think if you’re wearing a skirt that length, its best to wear a heel, because it might look a little dowdy when you’re wearing a flat with a skirt that length.”
