New York Fall Fashion Week 2012

New York Fashion Week kicks off the global calendar of Fashion Weeks, and is immediately followed by Fashion Weeks in London, Milan and Paris. Fall Fashion week showcases upcoming spring and summer collections from big name designers. While you won't see many people walking around in the styles you see pictured here, you'll start to notice spring and summer collections from stores like H&M, Forever 21, JCrew, NY & Co., and other top trendy teen stores. So, if you love fashion, follow trends or want to kick up your style a notch, check out what styles hit the runway in September 2012.

Wild on the Runway

Designers like Chanel break the boundaries of what is expected and what we are used to. When we see designs like this bedazzled brow and bejeweled dress, our first reaction is surprise, and that's what designers like to see. They want to turn your head, change your expectations, and challenge what we see as normal. While you probably won't see anyone walking around with bejeweled eyebrows, you may start to see this type of pattern appear where you least expect it -- on accessories like socks, handbags, hairclips, nail polish and even woven into hairstyles.

Best in Shoe

For spring and summer 2013, architecture and skyscrapers influence shoe design. Can you see the resemblance to a tall building in the heels on the sandal on the left? The earthy tan and silvery steel colors also resemble buildings and structure. If super high heels aren't your thing, the ultra-flat sandal may float your boat. Check out the flats in the collage. The braid trend has reached all the way down to the toes this season! Braids and buckles are in, and with crocheted and knitted textures, you'll find them on every accessory from hats and belts to purses and shoes.

Fit and Flare Skirts

The feminine silhouette of a skirt that is fitted at the top and flares at the bottom is a lovely look that wil translate well from catwalk to sidewalk. For cooler months, wear a leather, suede or velvet flared skirt with an ankle boot and fit and flared jacket. In warmer months, go for silky or stretchy fabrics and bold colors and pair it with pointy-toed pumps or flats.

Technicolor-blocking

The color blocking trend continues for spring/summer 2013, but this time the colors are kicked up another notch. Faded florals and baggy fit are out and they've been replaced by amped up rainbow colors and structured designs. Blue becomes cobalt, Yellow becomes icy lemon, Green goes neon and Pink is hot hot hot! Remember that color blocking is as much about wearing solid blocks of color as it is about geometry and sleek lines. Even black and white pairings look crisp and bright.

Pretty in Prints and Textures

Your grandmother's closet has become fair game in the coming seasons since lace, crochet, big fat florals, tweed pants, embroidery and even fur accents showed up on the runways this month. Fuzzy sweaters and looped crocheted shawls are in, too. If you know how to knit, this could be your season to shine!

Textured Handbags

If you carry a purse and you love interesting textures, you're in luck. From candy-like dots to weaves and buckles, texture is definitely in! And where texture is smooth, prints are bold. The runways are showing contrasting prints in bags and outfits, but honestly, that really just works on the runways. If you have a standout bag, mute the ensemble. If your outfit print is bold, a quieter bag will keep the prints from being at war with each other.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

CoolerThanMyself
I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.
