Runway Report: A Fashion Cheat Sheet For Fall 2012

When the Fall 2012 runway season wrapped back in March, our trend specialist, Alexandra Willinger, put together a fashion cheat sheet to prepare us for when September rolls around. Now that fall is rapidly approaching, the pieces we’ve been patiently awaiting are finally starting to arrive! Here are eight trends we recommend making their way into your closet this season.


BURGUNDY

Burgundy is the “it” color of the Fall 2012 season. Almost every important designer showed this color in some silhouette or fabric.

MILITARY MOTIFS

Military motifs and uniform details, such as belts, epaulets, and gold hardware, show up on outerwear.

GOTHIC GLAMOUR

Gothic glamour made its way down the runway in the form of dark colors with lots of drama and sex appeal.

HOURGLASS FIGURES

Hourglass figures are having a moment. Classic, curvy, & waist-defining silhouettes are a must this fall, and can be seen on dresses, jackets and coats.

JEWEL TONES

Rich, jewel tones in emerald green and sapphire will be replacing your LBD for evening.

LEATHER

Fall 2012 is all about leather. Coming back even stronger than last year, brands are using leather in every shape and color possible.
