what are the current trends in clothes shops?

Q. I have a job interview in a clothes shop and was wondering what current fashion trends are.

A. I don't follow women's fashion but I can provide the guys' trends for fall 2012 through summer 2013, or at least how they're predicted to be. This is according to major runway shows in Europe, so trends in American stores or unique shops will vary.

Some general trends: Slim pants/jeans (sometimes skinny), rolled up once or twice, JACKETS, hairstyles that are short on the sides/back and styled on top, accessories like watches and bracelets always make you look more stylish

Fall 2012 has some very light blues and oranges leftover from summer 2012 but they're only thrown in. Mainly, it's getting darker with blacks and grays, occasionally an obscure white or yellow dominated outfit. "A play on fabric" as Armani calls it is trendy, mixing different patterns and fabrics that you wouldn't normally match, as long as they go together in color. Outfits should stay simple and sleek though.

Winter 2012-13 is best described as "dark" and sometimes "tribal" with almost all black, brown and gray on jackets, pants and shoes/belts. Fabric play still revealant: For example, charcoal sweater with leather jacket throw-over.

Spring/summer 2013 should be sleek and include Mediterranean colors not only in just clothes but especially accessories. Like turquoise belts/shoes, bags and shirt accents. "Easter" colors is a good way to put it also. The base colors are blue and green.

Any good stores to buy cute/cheap clothes for back to school? (Girls; Austin, Tx; Sophomore 2012-2013)?
Q. My freshman year wardrobe was just horrible! I basically rocked the homeless look all year long!! -.-
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of where I can buy back to school clothes for a pretty cheap price, since I'm about to start my sophomore year. My mom's a single mom of 4 and I really hate making her spend lots of money. I'm 15, so I can't work yet, which doesn't help the money situation. I live in Austin, Tx. if that helps.
Honestly, I'm open to any suggestions on what clothes to buy bc I just buy what ever, but I want to make my wardrobe better/cuter. What kinda tops/bottoms/shoes should I get? What clothes should I buy that I'll be able to dress up or down with? I want to stop buying clothes that I can only wear for certain occasions or that I'll only wear once or twice a year.
I wanna buy clothes that's for fall, winter, & spring. Any suggestions?
Sorry for all the questions, it's just that I suck when it comes to being in style! What kind of shoes should I buy that'll match with everything? Lazy days & dressed up days. Every year I buy shoes that I can only wear with certain outfits & I find myself dressing horribly bc of that! >.<

Once again, sorry for all the questions, but I'd appreciate it if y'all helped me be in style for my sophomore year! I'm trying to not exceed $100, but I guess I can work with what I get, since everything's so pricy now-a-days! Thanks so much for your time and help! :)

Links to cheap, cute outfits is much appreciated as well as stores in the Austin or surrounding area! :D

Side note: Usually the styles I'm into are girly and/or floral, but then again I love the country style. I have cowgirl boots, so any outfits that'll go with them & any other shoes would be great! :D
One more thing, please keep in mind that I'm kinda chubby, so I'd appreciate suggestions of clothes that'll actually look good & not make me look even more fat. lol

A. i am a mother of a girl exactly your age who is also starting her soph year. unfortunately, unlike you she doesn't care how much her single mother spends. lucky for you i am both thrifty and fashion forward. i suggest you go to your local thrift stores and spend the bulk of your money there.
you need to have at least one perfect pair of jeans but two is better(skinny and boot cut). if you are a little chubby, stay away from super low or even low cut waists-they will create that dreaded muffin top and it's never attractive.
you also need a good coat that looks cute and keeps you warm. i say look for something that is unusual, funky, different but fits well and is comfy to wear. it will express personality and help u stand out. but be careful it isn't too out there! that could bring u the wrong attention.
get urself a pair of converse in a bright color that compliments the color of the jacket and the tops u get. think contrast. if ur a girly girl, baby pink is great with most everything u might wear.
make sure u have enuf tops and bottoms to dress for a week(bare minimum) without repeating anything except shoes and jacket. on a budget like urs that is do-able, and u should continue to add pieces whenever u can so u have more options. make sure everything u buy fits u right! that is, not too tight(hoping u will fit it soon) or too loose. try lots on to find what works (style/size) and stick with it.
another thing, look for the best quality items so they will last longer and look better. express ur personality but it's best to stay away from super trendy things or too extreme cuz they won't last long into the new school year. remember everyone is figuring out who they are/want to be just like you so be confident and focus on ur goals. that is the best way to look great all year long!!
i hope this helps u. let me know if u want more info or if u have any questions. have a great year!!
