Fall fashion: Must-haves and trends

By:
Fall fashion is all about mixing bold choices with classic looks this year -- hot hues, crisp whites, leather and fur. Caught in fall's winds of restraint, designers returned to their heritage and tweaked their greatest hits -- camel coats at Hermes, skinny pants at Stella McCartney and Sartorialita tailoring at Dolce & Gabbana -- for a fall fashion season of smart, classic clothes.

Fall fashion must-have: The bootie
Booties are hot this year. Pair them with tights, skinny pants and skirts for a chic ensemble that can go from day to night. Make suede your fabric of choice this year in shades of grey, rich burgundy and cool camel. And don't worry about spending a lot of cash, Aldo, Banana Republic, the Gap and Spring all have great fall shoe options. Check out our slide show of the shoes!

Fall fashion must-have: The coat
The classic Burberry military style coat might be out of your price range (starting at $3,500!), but what is key for the fall coat is the shape and structure. Think about belted waists for a more ladylike look and big buttons, zippers and leather for this season's hot military look. Get inspired by runway looks here: Fall fashion: The coat

Fall fashion must-have: The skirt
The skirt makes a comeback in fall fashion. The key message? Volume. Louis Vuitton flaunted the female for in circular shapes, Michael Kors flirted with A-line versions and Yves Saint Laurent swung in trapeze styles. Length? Most hemlines fell below the knee, so play the prim card! Here are some of our favourite fall skirts: Fall fashion: The skirt

Fall fashion must-have: The pull over
Classic sportswear is back! This season's must-have topper is the basic crewneck sweater. It was updated in sweatshirt styles at Dries Van Noten, snug, cabled motifs at Aquilano.Rimondi and perforated geometric prints at Balenciaga. Here are some of our fave looks that just hit the stores: Fall fashion must-have: The pull over fall-fashion2010.jpg
