Fall Runway at Honeysuckle

This may be one of my personally favorite fall fashion seasons ever!  The trends are totally wearable, figure-flattering, and refurbished.  Classic looks like leather and animal print were all over the runways, and the color of the year, green, debuted in rich, deep hues.  They may be hot for the season, but I have no doubt that these looks will be investments you'll be wearing for seasons to come!

So here is a "Top 10" of this fall's must-haves, and the looks that I found at Honeysuckle.

1.  GRAY!  Not everything is black and white, and whether you're sporting a chunky gray sweater, a gray coat, or patterned pants, this cloudy color speaks fall!

2.  LEATHER!  You don't have to ride a Harley to wear leather this season.  From leather pants to oversized moto jackets, leather is a must-have this season.  If it intimidates you, try wearing leather-trimmed tops or leggings just to add that extra edge to your outfit.

3.  PATTERN!  Geometric, floral, and classic patterns like houndstooth bring interest to your look.  Just remember to not overdo it!  Layering patterns is fun, but don't overwhelm the outfit.  And if you have to mix, stick to one color group.

Scarves are an EASY way to add fun patterns to an outfit

4.  GREEN!  Pantone's color of the year made a huge impact in fall-friendly shades.  Deep army greens and emerald packed the runways with energy and radiance!

5.  BLOCKING!  The color blocking of spring did an about-face with neutrals!  Block colors like black, gray, white, and cream for a fall-appropriate spin on color blocking.

6.  PASTORAL!  Perhaps my favorite trend, the pastoral look, is brown, cream, and fall all over!  Bring out your chunky knits, brown leather boots, fur, and tweed for a look that is cozy and classic!

7.  TUX STYLE!  On the other end of the fashion spectrum, we have luxe tux-a trend we are loving for work and evening.  White blouses and tailored black pants and skirts flatter the feminine figure with masculine edge.

8.  BOOTIES!  The short boots make a come-back this fall.  Wear your booties or bootlets with neutral tights or skinny jeans, or go bold in a skirt with bare legs.

9. JEWELRY!  Dazzle in statement necklaces, gold, and STACKED rings, necklaces, and bracelets.

10.  HATS!  From fedoras to pom-pom topped beanies, hats are one of the hottest looks for fall.  Choose what is right for your style and have fun with it!
