Fall is in the air and on the rack in department stores and boutiques across the country. As we gear up for fashion’s arguably most exciting season, one question remains: what’s on your fall wardrobe wish list? Here are few things that caught our eye.
Sure, sheer fabrics may feel more like spring, but we love this season’s pairing of thicker, solid outerwear over gauzier, gossamer apparel. No one combines textures better than Kate and Laura Mulleavy. The brains behind Rodarte, the Mulleavy sisters’ Fall 2011 ready-to-wear collection combines simple, vintage elegance with rich, lacy accents for an undeniably original, sophisticated look. We love their full-length, trench-inspired jacket over embroidered lace dress.

Hey Mr. Mustard
Harvest colors were made for fall, and right now rust and mustard hues are two of the hottest shades to hit the runway. However, not everyone can sport a bold gold. Those with a paler, pink-to-beige complexion can generally mingle better with mustard, while those with darker, golden-bronze tones can rock a rich rust. Be sure to do a little comparison-shopping to find the most flattering harvest hue for you.
Chokers are nothing new, but this season’s “it” trend takes the once-popular accessory to hunky, heavy new heights. Sleek and simple, today’s choker craze focuses on modern, minimalist design with an emphasis on precious metals. Gold, copper and bronze cuffs and collars create the perfect cocktail dress complement. We especially like heavy metal handiwork of Elie Saab and Max Azaria—tres chic!
