As summer starts to wind to a close, it’s time to analyze your fall wardrobe. Soon it will be time to remove all of those summer pieces and fill your closet with shirts, pants, skirts and shoes for fall. What are the Fall 2011 Fashion trends? I saw popular styles on the runaway for New York Fashion Week, but the trick is to bring those ideas and pieces into your everyday wardrobes.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t see myself walking the runway anytime soon! But I do see myself looking fashionable and put-together as I’m out for events, running errands and trying to look my best on a daily basis.

Here are some fashion trends that you will definitely want to try this season.

The Color Orange

If you take a look at some pictures from the NY Fashion Week, there is one color that kept popping up over and over again – orange. A vast array of orange. There are so many ways you can add this color to your outfits, whether it’s a shirt, belt or even an accessory. If you have a dark complexion, go for the bright orange of a stunning sunset. If you are pale, you’ll want to go for something in the coral range. And yes, you can wear coral in the fall!

Polka Dots

I am very excited about this Fall 2011 Fashion Trend! Yes, polka dots can be scary (I think I went a little overboard with them in the 80s) but if worn right, they can be so much fun and really make a fashion statement. I would recommend white polka dots on a darker background, like black/white or camel/white.

One very important thing to remember when wearing the polka dot trend is to realize that is your main thing. Everything on you needs to be understated or things could get way out of hand (yes, like the 80s).

Animal Prints

Yes, it’s true. Animal prints are back, so break out those leopard print shoes and giraffe purses. You definitely have to be careful with animals prints or else you could start looking like one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. If you decide to wear an animal print, go with a purse, shoes or a shirt.

The Colors of Fall

Pantone has put out a list of fall 2011 color trends for women which came directly from New York Fashion Week and they are gorgeous! Check out the image above.

When you are out shopping, keep these colors in mind. What I love about these colors, is there is something for everyone. They have a detailed description of each color on their website.

Out of these four Fall 2011 Fashion Trends, which one are you most excited to try?
