This Fall, look for a new spin on the classic polka dot; dots of all sizes and colors, Â everywhere from accessories, pantyhose and hats, to even full dotted uniforms. Looking forÂ something extra exciting? Try polka dots on unique material, like pleather, or sparkly sequin dotÂ accents. Â Dot marks the spot — for trend-setting style.

Maybe we should thank Rihanna for this one, after her S&M hit, but fashion designers areÂ bringing out the ropes and chains this fall. Look for bondage-inspired accessories, leather andÂ patent leather, high necks, corsets, high waists and black, as well as sheer fabrics accentedÂ by strips of shiny fabric — which looks a lot like stripes of bondage tape. Itâ€™s all a little punk, butÂ taken to a new level of edginess.

Bright and fluffy
Forget your grandmaâ€™s simple, classic tan fur coat. This fall, keep yourself warm and makeÂ a colorful statement, with some pretty crazy shades and styles of fluff. Some are calling thisÂ trend â€œpsychedelic fur,â€ and whereâ€™s why: Look for pinks, blues, greens — every color in theÂ rainbow that Mother Nature never made animals in. Other designers have found unique ways toÂ accent with fur or created some cutting-edge cuts that weâ€™ve never seen before.

Time to start swapping out your long, dangling, multi-stranded necklaces of 2010, becauseÂ 2011 is cinching up the neck accessories much tighter. Designers are pulling out some beautifulÂ chokers, which are mysterious and sexy, yet more subtle than the over-the-top necklaces thatÂ weâ€™ve seen so much of lately. Look for thicker chokers than in the â€˜90s.
