Straight from the runway, here are the top 10 Fall 2011 fashion must-have pieces:
1. A pair of brightly colored pants
This is definitely one of this season’s hottest trends that requires lots of confidence and a pair of lean, long legs to pull off. The runway shows featured a variety of colored pants, from bright orange to pink and green, but if you’re not comfortable with such bright colors you can always opt for less flashy shades like royal blue or burgundy.
