Check out the latest in hot styles for fall 09!

One-Shoulder Dresses


Charlotte Ronson, Fall Fashion 09

Jason Wu, designer of Michelle Obama’s white gown worn to the inauguration balls, says the one-strap cuts draw attention to the shoulder and the face.

The edgy LBD


Alexander Wang, Fall Fashion 09

Designers look toward the future with seriously severe shapes, sleek cutouts and body-hugging silhouettes that brought these black dresses a very next-century feel.

Leather pants


Derek Lam, Fall Fashion 09

This fall, trendy types will ditch their dark jeans and slip into a pair of dark leather pants.  The versions Derek Lam, Alexander Wang and Diane von Furstenberg whipped up fit close to the body and believe it or not…seem to magically erase five pounds.  Beat that ladies!

Sequins for day


Derek Lam, Fall Fashion 09

Save the skintight bedazzled dress for New Year’s Eve.  Instead, take cues from designers like Derek Lam and Philip Lim, who piled comfy layers over sequined skirts and dresses.  The result…a low key yet subtly glamorous look that works any day of the year.

Red and Pink


Jason Wu, Fall Fashion 09

This season, normally prim and proper designers like Jason Wu and Oscar de la Renta clashed these two loud colors–but because they paired them with the always-safe black, it works every time.  So pull out all your Valentine’s Day color clothes, and play a little mix and match!

Look at me Gloves


Max Azria, Fall Fashion 09

It’s time to give love to the glove!  A go-to accessory for instant ladylike elegance.  These aren’t the kind of gloves that just keep you warm and then get shoved into your pocket; these gloves beg to be noticed.

The fur stole


Matthew Williamson, Fall Fashion 09

The fun stoles at Matthew Willamson come in a broad array of colors and textures…it’s an easy way to glam up your all-black outfit in one simple step!

Peplum jackets


Tibi, Fall Fashion 09

Peplum jackets- fancy fashion talk for short coats that have a little skirt at the bottom are an easy way to dress up any pair of dark pants!

Strapless ruffled dresses


Milly, Fall Fashion 09

With kicky ruffles and the perfect necklace-ready neckline, the dress goes with anything from sassy red heels to a faux fur coat.

Neon Pink


Michael Kors, Fall Fashion 09

This pink highlighter works on all skin tones.  If you don’t want to splurge on a hot pink coat or dress, one or two acid bright accessories work just fine.  With color this vibrant, a little dab will do ya.

Monotone look


Narciso Rodriguez, Fall Fashion 09

The head-to-toe monochrome look may seem like a big DON’T, but wearing several pieces in the same neutral color like pale yellow, beige or camel– can make you seem a little taller.

Big-shoulder jackets


Phillip Lim, Fall Fashion 09

Try one of these fall’s ’80s inspired jackets.  A little volume at the shoulders can make your posture seem stronger and slims the waist, says designer Phillip Lim.

Airy Black netting


Catherine Malandrino, Fall Fashion 09

Simply Hot! These unique dresses are designed with close attention to folds, pleats and tucks.  The material creates figure flattering details.

Brown Coats


Mackage, Bluefly, Fall Fashion 09

Okay gals…there should at least be one brown coat in your collection. These can dress any outfit up or down!
