Would You Wear These Fashion Trends?

I just saw a list of Fall Fashion Trends, and I've written about trends before, but I was wondering how many of them are truly wearable for regular women. I mean, I can see plenty of photos of celebrities perched on five inch heeled clogs whilst sporting mongolian lamb fur vests, but that doesn't mean I'm going to try it.
What about you? Do you see yourself in any of the following seasonal fads?
Hot Fashion Trend #1: Silver Sequins.
I was iffy on this at first, but, after scouting around the internet, I think I could wear something silvery, and sequined. I'd thank JCrew for bringing what was strictly an evening look into the daytime. Here's a silvery sequined top from JCrew that's festive and pretty too. I'd wear it.
(FYI, you'll look even prettier if you smile, like Eva!)
Fall Fashion Trend #2: Animal Prints.
I know what you are thinking! Animal prints are so busy! But I think, in small doses, or with the right cut, they're doable!
Look at this great dress from Lane Bryant! Beautiful.
Fall Fashion Trend of Hotness #3: Floral Applique (Fancy words for Flowers!)
Florals are very retro -- and retro is always in! I'm not sure I could walk around with giant roses on my skirt but I've seen this lovely top at American Apparel and have long admired it.
It's covered with swirly fabric roses and is very chic. Believe me, I know.
Trend #4: Formal Shorts and Shirts.
Be careful with this one, ladies. Shorts and heels and shirts are not easy to pull off, but, if you are taller than 5'2" and have legs that go from here to eternity, get thee to Old Navy!
I'm not in favor of all the trends I've read about this month. There are two in particular I think we all should stay away from.
Dresses with revealing cut-outs should only be worn by women with abs of steel and zero back-fat, I'm thinking.
And denim rompers? Rompers MADE of denim? It seems to me that they don't even look good on celebrities.
So, there you are. My list of Fall Trends, as inspired by a magazine and some famous ladies.
Go forth and feel fabulous!
