Defining Style: Indulge from head to toe in re-emerging chocolate trend

Chocolate is an all-time favorite indulgence many of us can’t resist.
Chocolate brown heels, pants and jackets are another set of treats that are making mouths water for more and more sweetness with every bite. The color chocolate was a trend that had been reviving itself for a long time now. Celebrating anything that has to do with chocolate is always a good thing.
Venezuelan-born fashion designer Carolina Herrera added a bit of brown to her fall collection by sending model Coco Rocha down the runway in a pair of brown velvet pants. Donna Karan never fails to recreate a trend, and this season it was a mixture of the classiness of the 1940s and Diane von Furstenberg’s signature wrap pieces. Her sexy knee-length chocolate brown coat is so beautiful it makes me want to rip into a half-pound Hershey’s bar!
Another designer that never disappoints its clientele is Burberry. The historic British label had all the trends covered in its fall 2008 collection. With blazers being a big trend at the moment, Burberry brought out the big guns and introduced an oversize brown blazer. The most exciting piece from the collection had to be the quintessential, straight-leg brown pant in a shiny chocolate brown.
Just because we are not all 5’11’’ doesn’t mean we can’t break off a piece of dark chocolate and add it to our wardrobes. Gap has a new line of dress pants and the newest brown curvies are the pair that will make you melt. The curvy flare dress pants are a great pair of pants for someone who prefers to lay low at work or for a girl who is sick of always wearing black to work all the time. Even I must admit that wearing the same old black pieces are a bit drab, so the $54.50 relaxed deep chocolate pant certainly will breathe new life into a dull work day.
If you’re not the kind of woman who often steps out in brown, it can be rather hard to start suddenly, believe me I know. But that’s why trying a new accessory or something subtle but still flattering is a good way to start.
