{friday finds: upcoming trends}

This morning over at {iStyle}, I covered my predictions for emerging and continuing trends for Fall/Winter 2009. Stop by, and see what you should be adding to your wardrobe! Two of the trends offer the opportunity for DIY projects and/or are easily attained starting now: embellished shoes and embellished legwear.

This shoe by Jeffrey Campbell is a sweeter take on the ruffled shoes seen on the runway this season. It comes in black, nude, and gold. I pre-ordered my pair yesterday through here. You can also take the opportunity to refresh an old pair of shoes by adding draped fabric, as seen in the third shoe in the image at the top of this post. Or, you could add some studs or chains to a pair of your shoes.

I first saw this DIY embellished tight tutorial presented through A Cup of Jo. I’d love to try this myself, but it is far too hot here in South Florida to do this anytime soon. When I do, I’ll be sure to post up pictures. {You can also find a few examples of adorned legs from the RTW collections here.}

Then there are these uncommon tights, which are the work of Gal Stern. I found them on the fabulous Bleach Black blog. I think it takes some confidence in your style to wear these, but they look incredibly fun. Now, unless you want to handpaint your tights, I don’t suggest turning these into a DIY project; just order a pair instead.

Overall, you’ll notice a mix of glam and tough accessories this fall, many of which you can {thankfully} DIY or acquire inexpensively. Now go visit {iStyle}!
