8 Looks for Fall

Update your fall wardrobe with runway looks made over for real life.

Talk about versatile! This borrowed-from-the-boys piece works day or night. The style was part of an evening suit at Yves Saint Laurent and a rocker chic daytime ensemble at Isabel Marant.

Something Sixties

Give a nod to mod in sleek, sculptural pieces with a bit of volume. At Bottega Veneta, a purple roll-neck pullover was paired with a box-pleated skirt, while at Burberry a heavy satin cocktail dress featured a similar silhouette.

Polka Dot Dress

Dots got, well, dotty for fall in playful combinations of color and scale. At Marc Jacobs, colorblocking gave a fitted sheath Mad Men flavor, while strategically placed circles made for a sexy surprise at Stella McCartney.

Parka over a Feminine Dress

Grunge meets glam when a rough and ready anorak is popped atop a slinky gown. A fur-trimmed parka dressed down a bias-cut chiffon design at Altuzarra, while a leather coat added edge to a floor-grazing metallic dress at Mulberry.

Fur-Trim Coat

Touches of plush add texture and warmth to basic black coats. Fur trim gave an Edwardian flavor to a leather zip-up at Rag & Bone, while high-volume sleeves were an avant-garde addition to a menswear-inspired coat at Alexander Wang.

Bright Trousers

Pop! Bold pants are an instant update to basic black separates. Fuchsia suede pants were a standout at Pucci, while a cobalt pair turned heads at Thakoon.

    Good post. I learn something more challenging on completely different blogs everyday. It can all the time be stimulating to read content from other writers and observe slightly one thing from their store. I?d want to use some with the content on my blog whether you don?t mind. Natually I?ll offer you a hyperlink on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

    I wish more people would write blogs like this that are really fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the net, it is rare to read a blog like this instead.
