Unlike the Spring and Fall fashion show seasons, the Pre-Fall presentations aren’t wrapped in one clean swoop. They go on for weeks, which gives us time to digest the season’s spectrum. Here are 10 defining looks from the Pre-Fall 2011 collections which should provide some cues as to what to grab for the season.
Red isn’t going anywhere, if these collections are any indication. Here’s a stand-out look from Michael Kors. In a nod to menswear, pick up a pair of loose trousers, Oscar de la Renta-style, for the ultimate feminine take on the relaxed silhouette.
Neutrals always come around again on the runways, but color-blocking is just as integral to the Pre-Fall collections. A great example is this look from Jason Wu’s collection. Add a touch of feminine frill during the day with a bow-tie waist-cinching belt. 3.1 Philip Lim perfects pant detailing this season.
Go head-to-toe regal, Karl Lagerfeld-style – this means intricate embroidery and beading! Here’s a look from Chanel. Go for an abstract take on classic flowers, like this dress from print aficionado Erdem Moralioglu.
