Five For Fall

Fall fashion is a breath of fresh air.  After four months of wearing shorts and tank tops (and sweating like crazy) I just can't wait to get into some new gear.  Every year new trends pop up, some sticking around for years to come and others sizzling out before they even had a chance to develop.  Over the next five days I will list my favorite trends for fall; my first trend - leather.  Leather may seem scary, even intimidating.  For me it brings to mind images of Ross not being able to get his pants back on and ending up with a pair of baby powder paste pants, this is not the look I'm going for.  Even though they do evoke some fear, that's part of the draw for me.  When used correctly and in small dosages leather can look modern and irrestibly chic.

Start out small, then go all out.
