Fall is well under way (although it may not feel like it here in San Francisco), but for those of you who are still searching for the perfect Fall pieces, I have some advice for you.

During the Spring/Summer 2011 fashion weeks, we saw vibrant colors, feminine embroidery, and heady metallic accents.  Some of the top trends for Spring 2011 are very practical to wear during the winter months (you just have to style them accordingly).   So, why not get a head start on your Spring shopping!


This is a great color for Fall 2010, wear this color from head-to-toe for that minimalist look or pair with black for a classic look.


Ink (or navy) screams Fall, wear this color instead of black or even with black for a fashion-forward Fall look.


A pop of color is sometimes needed for those dreary days of Fall.  Adding a little green to your wardrobe is a great choice (it can be paired with any neutral color and a lot of people look good in green).

Fine Knits

A fine knit sweater is perfect for Fall, it  will keep you warm, sans the extra bulk.  Pair a thin sweater with a knee length skirt or flare leg denim, for a laid back look (I recommend wearing a bra with one of these sweaters though).


A little metallic and shine will brighten up any Fall outfit.  Pair a metallic blazer with a white t-shirt and skinny denim for an edgy/rock n roll look.


We’re going to see patterned tights all over this Fall.  Pair snakeskin patterned tights with a black mini dress for a trendy look.  If you can’t get behind wearing allover snakeskin, opt for a pair of snakeskin platforms, they can be very sexy!
