I don't consider myself a "trendy" dresser. I like what I like and I wear what I wear... But it's always interesting to see what the glossies and blogs have to say about seasonal trends. For this week's Twitter-views, I decided to ask some of my fabulous, stylish Twitter friends the following question: "What top three trends will you be rocking this fall?" Some of the top choices included leather, black, 90s grunge, statement footwear (over the knee boots and ruffled shoes), hardware (studs, zippers, etc.) and sequins (my favorite!). Here's what they had to say...
@fastidiousbabe biker glam is definitely on my list http://bit.ly/Bjaif
@Audrwey sequins, tight boots, leather! ;o)
@juicyincouture hmm that's a hard 1. A lot of the fall trends are remixed from spring 09 like those Harem pants. I'm going the classic route.
@jesspgh 1. PLAID (not tired of it). 2. 90s Grunge i.e. floral dresses and Docs (luv u Angela Chase). 3. And tights in all colors!
@ABeautifulLife 90's minimalism and global gypsy for fall 2009 for moi
@Misslizzymarie Over the knee boots, motorcycle jackets, and acid wash.

@ashleeflanagan for fall- subtle sequins mixed with a lot of black and neutrals fall is going to be very minimal with statement accessories
