Sure it’s just heating up for some of us across the country but now is the time to start thinking about the leaves turning shades of red and orange and putting back on your favorite pair of jeans that have been sitting dormant all summer long. It’s time to look ahead to the fall season and what you should be wearing this coming season. The fall sales are only just beginning and just when you think you don’t need anymore cozy sweaters, you find the one cape that you just can’t resist.
Here’s my picks for the top five fashion trends of the fall 2011 season, that honestly any woman can wear even if she’s expecting! I love how the styles are so forgiving of our changing body shape — which trend is your favorite?
