The summer is officially over and we can’t help but to get chills just thinking of the Fall fashion trends awaiting.  Soon chunky knit sweaters, boots and an assortment of thigh high socks, hats and scarves will be making appearances in our daily wardrobes.  But this Fall there some fresh new trends that are begging to enter your closet!  Here are the Top 5 Trends for Fall 2011, picked exclusively for you by HMM…


The 70’s makes a strong comeback with this trend.  Flowing and floor length, the palazzo pant is one trend from the past that we’re begging to continue into the future!  Try pairing this Fall essential with a flowing top or chunky sweater.

Lengths are getting longer!  Micro mini-skirts and booty shorts were fun, but now is the time for a little more class and subtlety.  Give your lovely legs some mystery with a midi length skirt.  By going calf and ankle length you can cover up this Fall as well as get a more classic 1940’s feel and charm while keeping your sexy intact!  Pair fitted, jersey midi skirts with statement belts and loose button down blouses or lingerie inspired tops for a sexy night out on the town.

Don’t be afraid of a little color!  The Fall is a transitioning period into winter when we tend to start reaching for all shades of black and gray.  This Fall bring some life to your monochromatic cool weather look with colored jeans.  Burnt oranges, deep purples and olive greens are appropriate for the season, but still lively and different.  To compliment this look, try wearing a similarly colored top.  This creates a color blocking effect with multiple shades of the same color.

70’s inspired attire continues to pop up in this Fall season, this includes the jumpsuit.  The jumpsuit is a great way to mix up wearing pants.  This look goes for work or play, easily transitioning you from the office to happy hour in style.  Try bold colors and prints to make this look a stand out.  Compliment your favorite jumpsuit with a belt and funky jewelry to break up the one piece.

The wedge heel isn’t going anywhere this season.  Trade in your bamboo wedge sandals for a pair of wedge booties this Fall.  Ankle boots with wedge heels are a sturdy and stylish alternative to the stiletto heel.  Look for wedges in suede and leather materials or fun prints with laces or zippers.  Wear wedges with your favorite anything!
