Buy, Keep and Remix: What’s In and Out for Fall
Buy: Bold Collars
We saw collars take center stage at the fall 2012 presentations of Oscar de la Renta, Preen (pictured) and Rodarte.
Both Michael Kors (pictured) and Prabal Gurung showcased dresses and skirts made of feathers on their runways for fall 2012. If you have feathery things from spring, continue to wear them, like this Michael Kors Feather-Print Blouse ($99.50, MichaelKors.com).
Leave it to Calvin Klein (pictured) and Derek Lam to showcase leather in their collections. It's just the thing to encourage us to unearth our leather pieces from storage. Not looking to take a giant leap into the trend? Try a leather-lined blazer like this one from Calvin Klein ($79.99, CalvinKlein.com).
Keep: Statement Hats
Not just any hat -- but a statement hat! We saw bold toppers at Jason Wu and Marc Jacobs (pictured), so if you have one, keep rockin' it.
Instead of wearing full-on fur like last fall and winter, opt for fur accents, like in linings, hoods and collars. Your inspiration: Rachel Zoe Trish Faux Fur Peacoat ($675, SaksFifthAvenue.com)
Keep: Blanket Coats
Still have that long, blanket-y scarf from last fall and winter? Break it out, belt it and go. Alice + Olivia and Rag & Bone (pictured) have brought back the trend.
From the flared minis at DKNY to the sleek coats at Alexander Wang, our fall previews suggest to us that maroon is going to be a big color this season. Set aside all the neon and opt for this more autumn-y hue.
Don't store or toss your peplum skirts and dresses just yet. You can still wear them this fall. Your inspiration: Zac Posen fall 2012 (pictured).
