Get ready to "fall” into the latest trends

The temperature is starting to drop outside, but that doesn’t mean your sense of style has to suffer. Instead, embrace the crisp weather with the latest fall trends. Check out a few of them below:

Tall boots- Over-the-knee boots were a staple item last year, but this fall fashionistas will find that their boots are creeping up even higher, with the popularity of thigh-high-boots making it to the mainstream - like these, from Topshop.

Chunky knit tops and scarves- Texture plays a big role in fall clothing. Fabulous, chunky knits will keep you warm and looking chic. Loose sweaters with detailed crochet patterns and long, luscious scarves should be in every girl’s closet this fall.

Military-inspired outerwear- Coats featuring large metallic accents, cinched-in waistlines, lapel collars and structured shoulders - as seen in this Calvin Klein coat at Macy's - will be something worth paying attention to as you search for your perfect winter jacket. 

The little black dress- No girl’s closet is complete without the LBD. From short and sexy to simple and sweet, there’s a style out there for everyone.

Ripped tights/stockings- There once was a time where ripped, distressed tights were just thrown away, however, thanks to the emergence of grunge fashion, they are now a full-on fall trend.

Asymmetrical cut garments- Looking for a playful way to enhance your wardrobe? Get ready to show off a little skin in the season’s hottest trend, one-shoulder garments, like this fantastic little number from Topshop. 

Leather clothing- It’s no secret that leather has become a staple fabric over the past few years, and this season it’s going to be everywhere from leggings (like these at H&M) and handbags to skirts, dresses and coats.

The gray cardigan- When it comes to cozy cover-ups, gray is the new black. The neutral shade goes with everything and can be dressed up or down. Old Navy offers a nice gray cardigan, in a number of different shades.

Torn denim- It looks like ripped jeans are going to be sticking around for another season. Designers have taken the trend to the extreme by featuring revealing, shredded up styles in their fall 2010 collections. Target offers a budget-friendly pair of Mossimo destructed jeans.

The boyfriend blazer- One piece of clothing that will keep you looking classic and stylish this fall is the “boyfriend blazer." Whether you pair it with your favorite jeans or over a strapless dress, you’ll be sure to turn heads.

The bib necklace- Color and sophistication are combined to create a unique fall statement piece, the bib necklace. This oversized fashion accessory can make even the simplest outfit special. Check out the adorable Candie's Silver-Tone Floral Zipper Bib Necklace at Kohl's.
