Top Ten Fall Essentials

The fall runways looked pared-down and ultra clean this season. i'm getting my closet started with some of these trends.
flares: Nineties revival, leg stretching flares made a comeback, here at balmain, these boot cut trousers are the perfect alternative to pencil thin skinnys
Velvet: For the more tactile shopper, velvet was huge this fall and is a great winter texture seen here @ Joseph Altuzarra
The Camel Coat: Bringing back beige designers sent a lot of camel down the runway. I love the oversize menswear vibe seen here @ Chloé
 Shearling: time to hang up your biker jackets as shearling was everywhere from Burberry to this Reed Krakoff number. I can't wait to stay warm in a shearling aviator.
statement gloves: black leather seems so bland when Rodarte's driving gloves are stitched together from cut leather and hand-tatted lace.
fur bag: I just adore fur and can't get enough of it, so F the recession and i'm getting me a Marc by Marc Jacobs' lamb fur bag to break the hearts of peta
short, cuffed jeans: I like the fifties rebel look with pointy toed pumps, varsity jackets, and a pony tail, and some cuffed capri-length jeans are the perfect way to pull it off. now, let's go meet danny zuko under the bleachers.
cropped sweater: I love this proenza schouler cropped sweater, perfect with high waisted jeans or rocking over the shoulder at jazzercise.
Maxi Skirt: MK&A brought skirts to new lengths at the Row, and longer skirts look great for fall
double- breasted jacket: a double-breasted blazer like this Bottega Veneta piece is brilliant, or maybe it just looks great on Karlie.
