1ST TREND – “MOTO JACKET”
A moto jacket is definitely a must! They are not only super cool, they are extremely versatile! You can throw them on with a pair of blue jeans and a T-shirt, or layer them over a dress.

2ND TREND – “ROCKER CHIC” ACCESSORY
You’ll see plenty of rocker Chic accessories this fall, everything from sunglasses, to bracelets, to shoes to bags. Look for details like spike, studs, chains and zippers. Check out CHANEL and VALENTINO Fall 2013 RTW collections for inspiration!
High: Valentino Handbag, Neiman Marcus, $2095
Low: Forever 21 Handbag, at Forever 21 Stores, $29.80
3RD TREND – POINTED TOE PUMPS
Pointed toe pumps are back in a big way this fall which I’m pretty excited about. I think they are elegant and ladylike. They also make you look a bit longer and taller when paired with a trouser in a similar color.
High: Manolo Blahnik BB Pump, Neiman Marcus, $595
Low: ALDO Pump, ALDO, $90
4TH TREND – GREEN
Pantone, the color gurus, named emerald green the color of the year. Major fashion houses like Christian Dior, Versace, and Marc Jacobs featured emerald green on their fall 2013 runways. Here is one way to incorporate the trendy shade into your fall wardrobe, with an easy, breezy blouse.
High: Equipment Blouse, Neiman Marcus, $198
Low: Express Blouse, Express, $49.90
5TH TREND – ANIMAL PRINTS
Animal prints are classic and chic. You have to pick the right print, though and the right piece for you. Here I have two pairs of animal print jeans. These are really fun and interesting with big impact, but they are tricky. For example, if you are at all pear or triangle shaped, meaning your lower half is larger than your upper half you may want to avoid these jeans or printed pants. You can work the trend into your wardrobe in other ways, though, with a blouse, bag, belt, or shoes.
High: 7 For All Mankind Printed Jeans, Neiman Marcus, $259
Low: Zara Printed Jeans, Zara, $69.90
