Check out these must-have looks from the runways for Fall/Winter 2011.
Skirts as narrow as a number 2 pencil – worn just above the knee, mid calf, and longer -- they hug you in all the right places.
You can wear white after Labor Day. Coats, sweaters, or crisp white shirts – white is alright. If you’re nervous about it, go a shade darker to cream. But remember, if you go beyond that, you’re wearing beige.
Ankle Strap Wedge
Wedges are a wonderful respite from spiky high heels. Unlike their 70s predecessors, these wedges look more like high heels on steroids because of their unusual mold. Comfort without the clunk.

Wear animal prints, landscapes and nature motifs on chiffon, jersey, even leather for a rich, bohemian look.
