Each week a celeb stylist answers YOUR questions. This week, we’re discussing what trends you can’t be without this fall — and how to use them to enhance your figure!

Emma Watson‘s super-stylist, Anita Patrickson, answered your questions regarding how to dress for this season — and whether you’re long and lean, curvy, or pear-shaped there’s a way to work the hottest trends of the season. Find out what Anita says should be on everyone’s fall must-have list — and how you can use it to enhance your figure!

What can’t we be without this fall?
“Fall is all about delicious Bordeaux colored pieces, black lace, fur accents, gauzy fabrics and NEON!”

“Geometric patterns are definitely a big trend this fall, especially Native American Indian patterns. Go bold with a patterned dress paired with tights and shearling booties. If that’s all a bit intense for you, choose one item like a scarf to be the focus of your look or a little more subtle with a fabulous glamazon geometric necklace to dress up a crewneck sweater and pants.”

“Weekend casual for me is all about great knits. Graphic color blocked retro prints will keep you on trend even on your days off.”

“Don’t forge to accessorize! Find a fabulously bold cocktail ring or a colorful clutch to brighten up your look. Bright pops of color are definitely still a must this season!”

If I’m super skinny or curvy, what current trends should I use to enhance my figure?
“Show off your curves with a lean riding jacket that you can cinch in at the waist, pair with a pair of skinny pants and a fabulous pair of lace up booties. Showcase your gorgeous gams and keep warm with a pair of burgundy opaque tights under shorts or skirts. Maxi skirts and dresses are bang on trend this season so load up and enjoy! Darker colors are more flattering and you can jazz them up with a chunky knit cardigan or a colorful scarf and big jewelry. Color blocking is still very on trend so take advantage and play around with the colors and shapes and go for a bright loose blouse paired with a tighter fitted a pencil skirt and big gold jewelry.”

“If you are super skinny then a lot of the draped dresses we’re seeing this season will be a fabulous way to give you some shape. High-waisted pants are a real trend this fall and they really are gorgeous on a tall slim body type. A long, slim-fitted dress with colorful horizontal lines is fun and flirty and something that pretty much only your body type will be able to get away with! We’ll try not to look at you and turn green with envy! I love the look of menswear on a skinny frame, just be sure to add a feminine touch with a sexy cami or a cozy cashmere.”
