Highly relatable, the strongest focus for fall and winter was on investment dressing, buying pieces that morph into many outfits, and are infinitely versatile.

Tights and the colored, covered leg were once again a huge hit in the collections for fall/winter 2010/11 fashion trends! This time around, the tights were accented, or completely woven, with glitter or even sequins. Sheer black was also shown in many collections, as well as the standard favorite, opaque black, grey, navy and even purple. Fringe accents, both in cut fabric and also knitwear and leather, were popular, and look great layered over sheer or silk tops. Grab this trend for your closet without breaking the bank with pieces like this black fringe vest ($135.00) from, sheer purple peasant shirt ($16.99) from, and shimmer tights ($6.95) from
