Top Five Trends for Fall Fashion

While  the entire fashion world has been obsessing over Spring/Summer 2011  this past week, let’s not forget that Fall is here. That means time for  jackets, sweaters, scarves, and anything else you can wear layer upon  layer.

We got a chance to catch  up with Alice+Olivia stylist, Jennifer Patrick about the Top 5 Trends for  Fall and how to incorporate them into your closet.

Leather: Leather  leggings are all over the place this Fall, and the Alice+Olivia girl is  no exception. And since not all of us can drop hundreds of dollars on  leather, we’ve found some faux options to keep your chilly weather look  super edgy. Cropped leather jackets with asymmetrical lines.

(L) A+O Alandora Faux Fur Shawl Collar Jacket $368 (R) Victorias Secret Leopard Print Faux Fur Coat $178

Animal Print: Once  considered a serious fashion faux-pas, animal prints are back in a big  way. The key with this bold statement is editing– wear a streamlined  all black look with a fun animal print coat, or if you’re not as  adventurous, accessories are the best way to incorporate this fearless  fabric into your everyday wear.

(L) A+O Rainbow Sequin Mini $297 (R) Victoria's Sequin Skirt $79.50

Sequins: Perfect for a night on the town, sequins glam up just about anything. Wear an  oversized sequin top with jeans for a daytime look, or a fabulous mini skirt to spice things up for night.

L) A+O Jocelyn Feather Dress $264 (R) Lipsy of London Feather Shoulder Dress $78

Feathers: One of our  favorite looks for Fall is A+O’s Jocelyn Dress with a feather shoulder  detail– flirty and feminine with a hint of glamour. For a slightly  sexier affordable look, check out Lipsy of London’s take on the feather  trend for a fraction of the cost.

(L) A+O Masha Metallic Faux Fur Jacket (R) Urban Outfitters Kimchi Faux Fur Coat $148

Fur & Textured Outerwear: Big this Fall are  textured shawl jackets– furs mixed with unexpected finishes like A+O’s  Masha Metallic Faux Fur Jacket. Shearling is another great way to  texturize your outerwear.
