By selecting my 9 top trends of Fall 2009, these pieces are wearable and can hopefully become staples in your wardrobe for years to come.1. REDThe color of passion, anger, and love is red. Red is hot and will always be in style, no matter the season. Here is French Connection's Sweet On You dress as seen on Lauren Bosworth and Annalynne McCord.

Wear this with Tina's Chandelier Bracelet and diamond studs and you are ready to go!There you have it, 9 of my my favorite fall trends of 2009 paired with the classic and nature-inpsired handmade jewelry from Tina Tang. What's great about buying trendy clothes is that you have the option of mixing and matching your favorite pieces with each other and with "outdated" clothes from previous seasons. This season's thumbs down? FUR. Don't get me started about killing furry little woodland creatures.
