Great! Now where did you compile your list from? Some of these things I saw in Elle, but I havent really seen any top tens yet from any other magazine. I know Vogues fall preview comes out in August

pretty much all of the fashion mags have done their "fall forecasts" by now. but my list is a reflection of what i wear every fall. it's always interesting to see how your own style corresponds to trends. and so, every season i retire any of my staples that are trendy...whether it be jeans tucked into boots....boho influences...and it seems that this fall i might not wear my vests as much. but that's a *good* thing cos there's always more to discover and try out

this was the list from the july 05 us vogue:
1. admiral's jacket
2. voluminous skirt
3. romantic blouse
4. newsboy cap
5. bright bag
6. short black evening dress
7. long loose dress
8. flat boot
9. statement coat
10. a skinny pant

bazaar's list was slightly different...they said you should have something fur and a croc shoe or boot.

imo, i'd say dresses are important...long, short, prints, solid colors...maybe even one in white or winter white for night. skinny pants are going to be big too. texture is big...velvet, fur, croc, grommets, etc.

I gotta agree with kimair on many counts.

Coats, though always big for the f/w season, made huge impact this season in so many great varieties....I'd say the must have is something slightly military inspired (as kimair listed), Gucci did them wonderfully, or something a bit mod, think Balenciaga.

As for dresses, I'd say ankle length or above, it just seems new right now. Although Galliano's perfect bias cut floor-sweepers were to-die-for, I still say that overall something between the lower-thigh and the mid-calf seems right, but if full length is your thing then do something old-school glamourous, McQueen did a gorgeous black column with a flared skirt and a giant sculpted bow that was so chic, and Calvin Klein had a full skirted satin gown that was just gorgeous.

My vote for best pants is a tie between Gucci's hip-hugger redux and Balenciaga's flares...both looked so great, they had just the right flare and were very classic. Again, as kimair said, pants are much more fitted for the fall.

Sky high heels were everywhere this season, maybe due to Louboutin's Clichy pumps, or maybe it was just the sickening hoards of embellished flat sandals last season and people just got sick of 'em. Some of the best were at Calvin Klein, and for those brave enough (should they appear in stores) Roland Mouret's spindle-heeled pumps were gorgeous.

As for skirts, although voume has been the major trend for the last two seasons or so, f/w saw a slow return of the pencil skirt, cut right below the knee and whip-thin....I personally loved them, but really, there was a little bit of everything as far as skirts go.

The most essential thing for the upcoming f/w season is something black. After seasons upon seasons of color black finally made it's comeback and (imo) never looked so good.

Not really a top ten but that's my list.

... I'm not really liking the image that comes to my head when I think of some of these things... Maybe we can get a few pictures of examples of these things??

The only thing that really appeals to me is the boots...

Most of these things are so not my style...
