9 unexpected runway trends
As seen at Isabel Marant and Mara Hoffman, this fresh take on the classic cowboy boot is cleaner and sexier, with edgy details like studs or embroidery.
A major pin like those from the Fall 2012 collections of Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta, give a daytime look instant polish.
Bookworm style went chic at Marc by Marc Jacobs and J. Crew Collection. Plastic frames are an eye-catching accessory -- whether or not you require a prescription!
At Diane von Furstenberg and Proenza Schouler, plush bags added texture to sleek outfits. Try a real or faux version for a look that works day and night.
Add a pop of color and texture to a simple outfit with lush velvet shoes. Get inspired by touch-of-glam runway looks from Rachel Zoe and Rebecca Minkoff.
Extra, extra -- a flat cap is the chicest way to stay warm this fall! Take a cue from these Ralph Lauren and Burberry Prorsum version and use one to top off a masculine-meet-feminine ensemble.
Lace up a pair of granny boots (like those from the Rag & Bone and Balmain collections) for a look more stylish than senior citizen. Hint: look for a version with a high heel for extra sex appeal.
A touch of goth was in the cards at Andrew Gn and Salvatore Ferragamo. Tie a simple ribbon choker around your neck for a modern take on Victoriana.
Both Lanvin and Burberry Prorsum showed creature-studded waist-cinchers. Strap one on to add character to your favorite coat.
