Fall is around the corner.

And with changing seasons comes exciting prospects of a new wardrobe.

Some stylists like Mark-Alan Harmon are adding their voices to the “what’s hot for fall” chatter that’s been going on in the fashion world.

He’s recommending what he calls his Fall 5 fashion tips.

1) Royal Hue – From grape to eggplant and lilac to violet, purple is the color of the season. Associated with nobility, this majestic hue is feminine, flirty and regal. Whether adding a plum handbag or lavender cocktail dress, a touch of purple is exactly what every fashionista’s wardrobe needs to reign supreme this fall.


2) National Velvet – Luxurious and sleek, velvet is the fabric of desire this season. Rich and elegant, this soft, silky material is as comfortable as it is glamorous. Look for a deep blue velvet coat, a pair of red velvet shoes or a violet handbag to add texture and polish off any look.

3) British Invasion – Step off the streets of London, ladies. British style, reminiscent of the ’80s, has hit the runways this year with a modern twist. For a fun, playful look pair a red and black plaid jacket with tight fitted pants because the legendary crisscross pattern is back and better than ever. Channel your inner rocker and invest in edgy, power accessories and patent leather shoes to play up this punk glamour trend.

4) Luck Be a Lady – Look every inch the lady this season by embracing the demure trend of neo-conservatism. To achieve this feminine, sophisticated look cinch the waist of a fitted knee-length shift dress with a narrow belt. For posh work wear, pair a sexy, curve-hugging pencil skirt and diaphanous silk printed blouse. Accessorize with a structured clutch and flirty, kitten heels.

5) Oversize Knits – Long, lavish knit sweaters are one of the biggest trends this season. Pair with fitted pants for a cozy, trendy look perfect for a day at the office or a Saturday afternoon. Be sure to experiment with sweaters and knit dresses in different styles, colors and fabrics, such as cashmere, mohair and wool, to find a look that best suits you.
