Red, Red Wine: DVF Red Dress
Roses are red, and this Fall so are lips, skirts, jackets, hats and any other number of signature pieces. Crimson seems to be the color of the Fall, whether it’s going all out and wearing the devilish color from head to toe or adding a pop of color here and there with a ruby belt or scarf.

Romantic Goth: Rodarte High Lace
Though his retrospective at The Met may be over (good riddance to three hour lines!), Alexander McQueen’s influence will be felt full-force this Fall as we will see an influx of the Romantic Goth Trend. Though you wouldn’t want to look like you were born and raised in a Hot Topic, you might consider adding heavy swatches of lace, high necklines and dark-almost black lipstick to update your already existing closet.

Color Blocking: Marc By Marc Jacobs Color Blocking Coat
The trend of the summer isn’t going away just because those hot beach days are. Color blocking is here to stay despite the loss of leaves. But instead of taking inspiration from ‘80s beach parties, Fall color blocking will reflect the landscape with touches of primary colors. Think beiges, dark brown, burnt oranges, purples, deep green and purple with standouts of royal blue and bright yellow.

Tartan: Etoile Isabel Marant Pants
Move over lumberjack plaid, tartan is taking over the town. This isn’t the tartan of the Scottish hills, rather it’s a sleek take on punk and grunge. Think Étoile Isabel Marant's slender wool tartan pants, which could be paired with a lacey silk blouse and a pair of riding shoes or Doc Martens. Or consider the Opening Ceremony slit tartan skirt that looks like something straight out of Clueless for a more literal take on the ‘90s trend.

Belled Pants: Rag and Bone Black Belled Pants
Very often fashion trends can feel like an endless cycle of a return to some recent memory. This Fall don’t be surprised to see women pulling out their bell bottoms from the back of their closets and trying once again to give their ankles some breathing room. But while bells this Fall are referencing the ‘70s to be sure, they aren’t the “same old, same old” bells of the past. Instead of starting the flare at the ankle, this fall the flare will start at the knee or thigh making them more of a mixture of hippie and sailor than anything else.
