tall toes and naked necks?

This fall season will be about the total package. Tailored, trim silhouettes. Attention to detail, especially in color hue and fabric texture. Flawless hair and skin. A dazzling smile. And the perfect accessory. Whether you are casual shabby chic or dressed to the nth degree in red-carpet-glam, women accentuate each look with the perfect heels. These heels create an illusion - they add height, and lift and emphasize tone in all the right areas. The higher, the better.

Some trends transcend gender boundaries - accentuation of the neck. For men, neckwear and an array of collars will take you from nobody to somebody. Ties in satin, silk, and wool. Scarves in cashmere, linen, and wool. And from traditional collars to the most innovative in design, shirts will show the neck like never before. This look is just as important for women. You'll see many scarves, and even borrow some looks from the men's formal wear, and will all finish off the most elegant, fashion forward looks.

From the neck to the heels, remember to check silhouette and structure. After all, Coco Chanel said it best, "Fashion is architecture. It is a matter of proportions."
