As part of its Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2010, Pantone Color Institute has provided a list of what designers say are the “must-have” items for the season. One big trend: jackets in all shapes and sizes — leather, bolero and tuxedo styles will be seen across New York’s runways. Below, a glimpse of designer favorites for fall.

Baby Phat — The silver sequin flutter sleeve tunic dipped in Tasty Plum.
