We're still digging parkas for Fall — and while the ubiquitous army green version is an option, we dare you to dabble with some of these new and noteworthy choices. We're smitten with the thought of wearing this smooth velvet parka from Asos, and Edun's patchwork pattern version is beyond rad. Feeling an extra splurge coming on? Then check out Rag & Bone's refined wool and cotton topper or Belstaff's timeless waxed cotton coat.

Simple pieces in a neutral palette of camel and gray (which also extends to brown and beige) create eternally chic looks for fall. Those same pieces can easily and quickly be restyled by changing a few accessories or by removing or adding a layer — or two.
>> With Fall in full swing and chilly air moving in to stay a while, it's time to brush up on your trusty cold weather options. Zara to the rescue — the brand just released their October lookbook, brimming with options. We picked our eight favorite outfits — featured among them are red cropped trousers; the coziest tan sweater dress; and a must-have pleated leather skirt.
With Fall in full force, it's time to turn our attention to wardrobe staples. While our well-worn jeans have a special place in our hearts — and closets — this season, it's all about the trouser.

>> After disappearing in February 2009, Jane Mayle is back with a Fall 2010 capsule collection of dresses, coats, tops, handbags, called Kamikaze Full of Love, plus shoes and boots in collaboration with Sigerson Morrison (sketch at left), all launching today at the Sigerson Morrison Laboratory Boutique on 19 East 71st Street in Manhattan. The line will be available through Oct. 14, and new goods are expected to arrive at the store each week.
Mayle describes the line as "the result [of] only making things because I feel like it rather than being constrained to do so. The pop-up is titled 'Kamikaze of Love' for a reason. The pieces are only those that I want to wear now and don't necessarily work together as a "collection" because I didn't feel the regular dictates of the industry to flesh out a design story for the purposes of things hanging together in any other place than my own closet. This really is my wardrobe of right now."
So does this indicate a return to fashion? "There's so much about this pop-up approach that I find very appealing. It feels very light which is definitely the most appropriate incarnation of Mayle for now. I'm enjoying not knowing if there will be more Mayle in a fashion context and being open to what might come next or what I'm moved to put out there — I'm looking forward to surprising myself. I feel so lucky that I now get to respond to my mood of the moment and create something from that and then move on to another medium or collaboration. That fluidity and variety is bliss! There's a floating sort of ease to the pieces which I'm really enjoying and there were just fabrics I couldn't resist and got me on the subway and up into the garment district again . . . they made me do it!"
As fall quickly approaches, many of us are checking out the latest trends to prepare for the season. Bold, rich red and berry-colored eye shadows, deep smoky eyes, metallic golds and ambers, as well as matte nude, berry, and brownish-orange lips all ruled the fashion runways. I plan on adorning my pretty little face with a few of these trends. But I also plan on claiming as well as owning (as in self ownership and the ability to confidently wear) a few of my own trends. One of those trends will be the everyday bright-but-wearable pinkish red. I’m going to incorporate this color into my makeup, clothing, and, of course, nail color. I even saw Rihanna wearing a color similar to the one I have in mind in the “Love the Way You Lie” video, which is CND Wildfire. I know, I know… this isn’t a trend and it may even seem to be more appropriate for spring. The great thing about claiming and owning your own trend is that it doesn’t matter… just do you, and do it well.

Smart layering can make your Fall transition an easy one with maxi dresses, leather jackets, and a few carefully-selected accessories. A maxi dress, like this Forever 21 striped number, can keep you streamlined and cool under the sun, while a thin leather topper — we suggest this Juicy Couture ruffled creation — will provide extra warmth once the dark sets in. Finish off with some high-topped Chucks, spiked bangles, and a studded bag.
