There’s no need to worry about keeping warm, because everything was layered for Fall 2013. The trick to this trend is balance. You want to start with the tightest, thinnest layer. Then you add your thicker fabric on top. Not only does it keep it warm, it also allows you to wear dressier pieces, like bandage dresses and bustiers during the day.

Fur was everywhere for fall: on coats, collars, gowns and even skirts. Since I’m a huge animal lover, I was thrilled to see designers like Christian Siriano, Ann Sui and Pamella Roland show faux options on the runway. There were just as chic as the real thing!

This was the first season in a while that I didn’t see too much boho on the runways. But not to fear my hippie loving fashionistas. There were designers who delivered a gypsy chic collection. The nomadic traveler looks were relaxed, layered and in a darker color palette that represented the season.

I’m thrilled houndstooth has made a comeback. The print is such a classic, yet designers still found a way to reinvent it for fall. I particularly liked the mixed prints at Trina Turk and use of color at Oscar de la Renta. The easiest way to wear this trend is with a houndstooth jacket. You can pair it with a LBD at the office and with leather leggings or jeans over the weekend.
