lady chic trend for fall 2011

Lady Chic is one of the hot trends for fall 2011, and updating your sunglasses is one easy way to partake in this classy trend. Check out the Trend Spotlight with Rachel Bilson on

Ladies, it’s time to welcome back glamour. Elegance has made its comeback this season and I, for one, am super excited about it. So let me give you the low down on what we’re calling The Return to Feminine Elegance. Designers have taken inspiration from the golden age of Hollywood, sending models down the runways in cinched in waists, pencil skirts, flirty full skirts and lace. It’s elegant, glamorous and nothing short of fabulous.

I’ve been dialing up my glam factor with my sunglasses, too, by embracing different, more feminine shapes and delicate details. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll never stop wearing my Ray-Ban Wayfarers, but I’m mixing it up with cat eye and chic oversized butterfly frames.

Sunglasses are a great way to accessorize and an easy way to update your look. Don’t think that just because we’re moving into fall, you can put your sunglasses away. I wear my sunglasses all year round to protect my eyes and, of course, because they make a super fun accessory!

It appears that I’m right on trend with my newest sunglasses purchase. Back in July, my husband surprised me with a gift card to Sunglass Hut for my birthday. My first thought was, I don’t need another pair of sunglasses.

But of course I couldn’t let that gift card to go waste . . .

So one day Melissa and I met at the mall, and after I tried on about 2 dozen pairs, I went back to the first pair that I had tried on (isn’t it always the way??) I came away with these fabulous butterfly-shaped frames by Tory Burch.

I, for one, am happy to see ladylike elegance making a comeback. Thank you, Dutchess of Cambridge.
