I always love flipping through fall magazine issues to determine what I need for the upcoming season.  I have whittled my list down to the essentials but I've decided to make my new pieces count.  I tend to go with a darker palette for the colder months and I'm not sure why.  It's the dreary months that need more pops of color!  Thus, I'm committing to more color this fall...poppy, mustard, cobalt, cranberry and hunter green are the hues I'll be looking for...

I discussed fall fashion trends and key pieces with my very stylish friend, Flo Bear, on a local TV show called INsight.  We listed the following pieces as our must haves:

A cozy poncho or cape - I personally have always loved this look and I have many already so I didn't need to splurge a ton on this category.  I did pick up a new one from H&M that is perfect for layering as part of my outfit but can do double duty as a sub for a light jacket.

Fur embellishment - a touch of fur, real or faux, can really enhance a sweater, jacket, hat or even handbag.  I have a furry vest from last winter that I'll use again but I'm still searching for an updated piece to add to my closet.

Chunky sweater - while this is on many lists "chunky" doesn't quite work for my body so I'll skip this one.  But if you can pull it off, do so!  It's a huge trend but can easily look dowdy if not accessorized correctly.  Add some sparkle in the form of pretty earrings or some bold bangles.

Colored denim - I'm all for this trend - in all colors.  You can also sub in colored corduroys - just make sure they are a thin wale to keep the look lean.

Statement jewelry - I mean...when is kick ass jewelry NOT in???  I guess this is just an excuse to load up on some new options.  I'll be looking for color, color, color when it comes to my new jewels!
