The Midi Skirt
Fall's got a new favorite length and midi is its name. Seen at shows like Oscar de la Renta, Rochas and Victoria Beckham, midi skirts proved as fashion-forward as they are ladylike. Wear this trend now, by pairing with lighter sheer-styled tanks and then transition into fall by incorporating a fitted sweater.

Take your bedroom antics into your everyday wardrobe by reveling in luxe slips and bias-cut gowns.

For the summer version of this alluring trend, opt for a top style instead that you can easily pair with cut-off shorts.

Fan of the shoulder reveal? Good news! This sexy trend is going nowhere for the timebeing.

Thigh High Slits

Gem encrusted necklines, sequined embellishments, metallic accents...from Dolce & Gabbana to Balmain, regal dressing had us feeling all sorts of bedazzled. Cater to this amplified trend by wearing an embellished tee you can easily transition into your fall wardrobe.
The Big Cats
From leopard to cheetah, felines are getting the oversized treatment for fall. At shows like Tom Ford and DKNY, exaggerated animal prints turned major heads. To get your hands on this notice-me trend now, look for separates that pair just as easily with cropped tops and tanks as they do with slim sweaters and jackets.

Blue always gets runway time come fashion week and this fall was no different. Replacing last season's cobalt and Tiffany blue, the very winter-appropriate ice blue showed up in major waves at shows like Carven and Acne. Wear this steely color with short shorts or minis now and transition with denim and leather pieces for fall.
Our favorite material got major air time on the Fall 2013 runways, appearing on casual, professional and even fancy outfits. Take your cue from the likes of Phillip Lim and Chalayan and upgrade your denim wardrobe by including chambray, patchwork and plenty of indigo pieces.
As seen at shows like Suno and Marc by Marc Jacobs, patterns and prints hit a repetitive note this season for a result that is distinctive and captivating. For the most flattering combination, look for pieces that are fitted or highlight your waist like this pretty fit and flare dress.
