I spend a lot of time on Fabsugar telling you about the top trends for Fall 2006. But how do you know where to put your money? If you're only going to follow five trends this season, here are my picks for Fall's fashion must-haves.

1. Skinny Jeans are this season's number one must-have item, worn with a long tunic or over-size top. The super skinny J Brand Jeans in gray are especially popular among celebs (including Posh, left) these days. Buy the 12-inch Pencil Leg Stretch Jeans here for $159.

2. Bags with Gold Hardware. I've been coveting this Miu Miu "It" Bag ever since I caught a glimpse of Sienna Miller carrying one. It has since been embraced by other fashionistas, including Mischa Barton, Hilary Swank, and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Another way to follow the trend is with this Marc Jacobs Large Quilted Tote, available here for $1,175.

For three more trends,

3. Wide belts. This uber-hot Fendi belt, which comes in patent or regular leather, has had a huge hand in the wide-belt trend. It's only available in stores, but there are plenty more wide belts to choose from here.

5. Something patent leather. We love anything in black or red, and I am really partial to these Sonia Rykiel Patent Leather T-Strap Pumps. To buy them for $630, click here.

Or, buy this Marc by Marc Jacobs Red Patent Slouch Hobo here for $458.
