Fall fashion trends for 2010

Camel coat by Michael Kors

Usually you wouldn't need a reason to go shopping, but if you're searching for an excuse to add something new to your closet, head to the mall in search of this season's hottest fashion trends. These are definitely five "must-have" pieces for the upcoming season. Some items will add spice, others are more traditional but all of them will update your wardrobe for fall.

  • Animal prints are loved by everyone this season. They are seen everywhere, head to toe. To add a sexy animal print piece, try a corseted top or a pair of sky-high heels or peep-toed ankle boots. For a more minimal approach, try flats or kitten heels instead. A suggestion from the experts: only one printed piece at a time, please!

  • Dog may be man's best friend, but this season, camel is woman's bff. Add camel tones to your closet in any way you can. A camel-colored coat, for example, is always classic and timeless. Choose any style, from a cinched waist to an over-sized, ankle-length edition, that is most flattering for your figure. Remember to consider your skin tone when choosing a shade and to mix up your tones when layering.

Tea Length by Louis Vuitton

Kitten heel, animal print by Mossimo for Target

  • Women across America will breathe a sigh of relief at the next trend: flats and kitten heels are back! So trade in your four inch pumps for a more comfortable, but just as stylish, pair of flats or kitten heels. Choose a style with flare by picking a pair in a fun print                 (possibly animal print!) or embellishment.

  • For fall, lace and leather pair together like sugar and spice. While lace pieces are always cute and fashionable, this season, pair them with leather items (faux leather, we hope!) for a different effect. Try a white lace top with a fitted, black leather skirt to add some naughty to your nice.

  • Fall's last trend may come as a surprise and disappoint the men of the world, but tea length skirts and dresses are very popular for the upcoming season. Swap your slacks for a longer, fitted skirt hitting between mid-calf and ankles. Or, try a fuller, tea-length dress fitted or corseted in the top or a skirt, belted at the waist.

Happy fall shopping and styling!
