Fall Fashion Must-Haves: Michelle Trachtenberg, Stacey Bendet, More Advise

by Christina Garibaldi

It’s time to put away those flip-flops, hang up the sun dresses and fold up those shorts because fall has officially arrived! With the change of temperature comes a change in wardrobe, so what will everyone be wearing this season? We asked the experts to let us know what we will be filling our closets with this fall.

"A high-waist pant is a big must for fall," designer Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia told us. "A long skirt, pleaded skirts, printed skirts; those are all three things I would say are a must.”

Now that’s not the only things we can look forward to; it seems all girls can expect to let their tomboy side out this season.

"I feel there is still a lot of menswear vibe, and I’m a big supporter of that," "Gossip Girl" actress Michelle Trachtenberg said at New York Fashion Week. "I’ve never been an uber-short skirt girl. I’m always, like, if I wear one, I’m tugging at it. I like slacks and a coat."

What’s Michelle’s fall must-have? Not surprising, it’s something from her favorite designer, Rebecca Minkoff.

"Becky [Rebecca] has the most amazing blazer, called the 'Becky Blazer', so I literally have it in almost every color."

Leandra Medine, who runs the fashion blog, The Man Repeller (it’s a super-fun site!), suggests three fall trends that we guarantee won’t keep the men away!

"A really good trench coat, a really really amazing white T-shirt you can wear all the time and a pair of palazzo pants, because really, who doesn’t want two tents on their legs."

So there you have it: your top fall trends. What are you waiting for? Get out there and start shopping!
