The Hottest Fashion Trends for Fall 2011

From the comeliest suburban ladies (school teachers, soccer moms …), to the most modish celebrity girls (Emma Stone, Justin Bieber …), everyone needs a little fashion advice from time to time. So check out the top five fashion trends for Fall 2011 below — each one guaranteed to keep you in style and in demand this season.

Bonus: You can get all the looks at Westfield North County.

  1. The Free Spirit
    Long skirts, colorful knits, patchwork, and peasant style clothing define this perennially hip style. For a breezy, unconfined look, start with a black dress from Cache, but create a tighter silhouette with a jacket from Guess. A tiny clutch from Aldo and feather-shaped pendant earrings from Forever 21 will add a touch of sophistication.
  2. Earthly Minimal
    Achieve a subdued but sophisticated look by layering soft pieces in earth tones. A sharp, beige jacket from Charlotte Russe combined with a beige jumpsuit and brown clogs from Aldo.
  3. Modern Mod
    If crisp and modern is more your vibe, go with slim skirts and pants in geometric shapes and bright colors. Pointy toed wedges and shiny heels complete the picture.
  4. Strictly Lady
    Sexy but tough. Black leather, high heels, animal prints, and lace are the signature pieces this fall.
  5. Knee-Lengths Skirts, Cardi Wraps, and Animal Prints
    Can’t decide, or need some basics that can work for any looks. Invest in knee-length skirts, cardigan wraps, and animal prints. Each piece can work with a variety of looks.
