There isn’t much difference in hair trends either. Sienna Miller’s lovers, I have some good news for you! You can still recreate intricate hairstyles consisting of braids, especially an utterly girlie Heidi braid. However, a lot has changed in the terms of make up.

Therefore, your number 1 on the fall’s shopping list should be a romantic burgundy lipstick that will cover your mouth with endless sophistication and make you the most fashion-conscious one.

Another makeup product we’re already obsessing over from winter 2012 makeup trend collections is a unusual blue mascara that makes your lashes stand out more (no eyeshadow needed!) as seen in various fashion shows.

In 2012 it must be Christian Louboutin or Nicholas Kirkwood. Definitely! Chunky heels well they look kind of sturdy to me, but some shoes can be really mind-blowing. I am not personally a fan of these rounded toes, so the option of squared toe is a true redemption to most fashionistas! Yet another amazingly hot 2012 shoes trend for winter is…open toe boots worn with tights as seen on Vanessa Hudgens. Previously considered a fashion faux-pas, but absolutely NOT this time. Also Oxford shoes women have been a huge trend among numerous female stars.

Also, beware of what you pair with the boots so as to avoid looking tacky. Yet another outstanding and rather spit-and-polish trend are lace up shoes. It depends on the style, but basically this season there’s no place for modesty. Apart from lace-ups, there are also Mary-Janes – beloved by many celebrities, reptile leathers – right from the jungle and cute, Pocahontas-like shoes with fringe detailing (have you ever had a fringe bag too?). The other trend worth trying are combat boots women, the military-inspired boots as seen on Jessica Alba who loves to accessorize them with ladylike frocks and bold jewelry.
