Sure, there's some bad stuff out there (we're downright frightened by the sight of mega-oversized '80s shoulders and see-through jeans). But fall 2009 is not a total letdown. We're loving the fact that we can once again purchase jeans without the uttering the words "skinny" or "high-waisted." We're crazy about black leather and red and almost any combination of the two. And really, don't we all feel just a smidge more feminine when adorned with a ruffle or two? Take a look at our fall fashion picks above, let us know what you think below.
