To prep for Fashion's Night Out (slated for Sept. 10), the Fashionable Matilda is presenting a multi-part series which highlights the top 10 items needed for Fall 2010. For us, there's no better way to celebrate shopping as an event while buying this season's key items and doing a little partying around town. Now that's what we call retail therapy!

You need: Camel Coat

A universally flattering color, camel is all over the runway this season. Chloe exemplified it the best with its Fall 2010 collection, with designer Hannah McGibbon sent down the runway a collection of sumptuous coats and knits that exude ease and comfort with a touch of understated elegance. We like ours in the form of a coat - the bigger the better - so we can wrap ourselves in the warmth of this amazing color while trekking through New York City's cold cold winter nights.

You need: Fur Vest

We especially love Michael Kor's version in sumptous rabbit fur, with a stand collar. Pair this with a simple long-sleeve knit and jeans for a dressed down look, or go all out with a little black dress for a luxe date night.

You need: Black Pants

A good pair of black pants is a wardrobe basic. This season it's even essential for balancing out the luxe of big coats and fur. Gap is strong in this category with a new collection of black pants designed to fit nearly every body types. We like a boot-cut version that flatters and makes legs longer (who wouldn't?). J.Crew makes a slimmer cut called the Minnie Pant that reminds us of Audrey Hepburn a la Funny Girl days.
