Reblog: Top 10 Fall Fashion Trends by Shoppingandinfo.comFall is a great time of year because it means brisker temperatures, leaves changing colors, andthe holidays are approaching. As someone who grew up on the east coast, I have alwaysloved the fall. I love the fall colors in nature and the smell of wood burning from fireplaceson a fall evening. Some of my favorite items for fall are top handle bags and the color camel.Here is my list of the top 10 must have Fall trends for 2011.1.) The color Camel for fall is one ofthe biggest trends this season. Checkout this 3.1 Phillip Lim Scarf CollarCoat with Removable Sleevesmotorcycle jacket for $850. If everthere were a genius jacket, this one by3.1 Phillip Lim is it. The jacket hits thelady like trend as well as the camelcolor neutral trend for fall and it is 2looks in one. The motorcycle cut ofthe jacket gives this jacket a modernedge. The attached scarf gives it thelady like look. The sleeves can zip offwhich gives the jacket another modernvest look. This is the perfect jacket forwork and for travel.2.) The look of mod is big. Think1960’s with smokey eyes, pink lips, awhite mohair sweater and a pair ofleggings with a pair of black ridingboots. Bridgette Bardot epitomized thesmoldering siren look and this fall soft
feminine fluffy sweaters are back. Recently Kristen Stewart wore a white mohair and woolsweater from Max Mara on the cover of W Magazine paying tribute to that look. For the fallseason, wear the look with black bootcut Capri jeans with a pair of wedge platform pumps.Michael by Michael Kors made a white deep cowl neck sweater this season that can also beworn off the shoulder too to create that whole mod look for $120.

3.) The top handle bag. If you love the show Mad Men then you have probably seen tophandle bags from that era. This season is all about the top handle bag to cinch that ladylikelook. Top handle bags can be carried in the crook of your arm, worn with pumps and a shiftdress. Top handle bags can be as simple as a snap open top bag to a top handle bag with anopening on either side of the bag and a cross body strap for a modern update. One of myfavorites is the Fendi Peekaboo which just gives you the ladylike look with all of thefunctionality. However if you would like something more affordable a great option is the
glazed top handle leather bag by Giani Bernini bag for $98. The bag has a top handle, crossbody or shoulder strap, and separated sections inside the bag for easy organization.
4.) Platform wedge shoes from the90’s are back. If looking tall is abig priority you are in luck. One ofthe biggest trends this season isfrom the 1990’s. Shoes that canhelp you grow 5 inches in heightand keep your feet comfortable allday long. One of the biggestplatform wedge designers from the1990’s is back with updatedversions of the platform wedge.This season Robert Clergeriecreated platform wedges in 5 inchloafers to go with opaque tights,pleated skirts, and cardigans.

This season feminine wool coats are front and center to go with all theladylike fashions. You need a great coat to go with your top handle bag. Some of myfavorites are the belted wool coats that you can wear with pants or a dress so you can go fromoffice to dinner without thinking twice. One of my favorites is a tie waist wool coat that has alittle detail like a fur shawl collar or a ruffle collar. Just those little touches can turn afunctional wool coat into an extra special piece.
