The 10 Things You Need To Buy This Fall (PHOTOS)

The Only Things You Need To Buy This Fall

Though the Fall 2013 runway shows were months ago, it's finally time to start implementing some of the major trends of the season into our wardrobes.

Thankfully, many trends that were big last season (and this spring) are still huge right now. Leather remains important (skip the traditional black leather jacket and opt for a jewel-toned shade instead), while plaid continues to have a moment. Bottom line: there is no need for a complete wardrobe overhaul once the temperature starts to drop.

Check out our list of the 10 biggest trends for fall and let us know if you plan on trying (or retrying) any of them. Ready, set, fall fashion!

1. Emerald green. Pantone named this rich shade its top color for 2013, so it will certainly be huge this season.
