What's In for Fall by iVillage

Breathe a sigh of relief, harem pants are out for fall! But what will everyone be wearing? iVillage style experts (including Miss Piggy and Scarlett Johansson) predict the hot style and beauty trends.

The Big Coat: "My must-have for fall 2009 is a big, black coat [or] black or grey wool... [with a] scarf to kind of switch them up," says actress Scarlett Johansson. "I think [these] pieces play great with denim, a lot of nice casual wear, and [stuff that's] more suitable for work like pencil skirts," she adds.

Pink: "Moi is always very choosy about deciding who to wear," says Miss Piggy. "This fall, I'm selecting designers based on three criteria: their originality, creativity and willingness to part with samples." "Also this fall, I think that pink will be the new black, plaid will be the new paisley," says the fashionable pig, who's been hanging out with Marc Jacobs lately, "and green will still be mine, so back off, sister!"

Mixing It Up: "Fall will be about mixing high and low--taking a crisp white shirt and matching it with an updated navy blazer to create a classic American day look," says iconic American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger. "Bermuda shorts will be a key item to wear day or night."

Juxtaposition: "Fall brings a juxtaposition," says Geren Lockhart, the creative mastermind behind Geren Ford. "[You'll see] hardware against delicate silks and tough-washed cottons and denim, and pleats and gathers shown with leather and vintage-washed fabrics." "Silhouettes will be simple, yet constructed with hand-finishing, like painting and paillettes," the designer adds.

Menswear for Women: "It's ironic, but there's nothing like a classic menswear-inspired piece to make a girl feel truly sexy," says Victorya Hong, former cast member of Project Runway. "And, in this economy, you can't go wrong by investing in a beautiful tailored piece to mix and match with everything else you have in your closet."

1980s Diva Style: "[This season] is an open call for 1980s diva style--any look that pays tribute to an '80s music video," says Amy Goodman, fashion trend director for Timex and former InStyle editor. "Don't be afraid to rock a leather skirt, biker jacket or black strappy sandals as you begin to switch out your wardrobe." "For those of us who want to play up prints of the past, but are now tired of last season's floral fantasy, what will be in are those graphic prints in black and white that showcase squares, cubes, lines or plaid," she adds.
