Black was the biggest color for fall. To keep things interesting, take note of how designers played with fabrics. Mixing leather, sheer, and shine makes a head-to-toe black outfit anything but boring. Since I’m a fan of color, I particularly liked how Calvin Klein added a subtle pop of pink with lipstick to brighten the jet black trend.

From thin velvet to oversize satin, bows were all over the Fall 203 runway. I personally like a medium size bow at the neck of a blouse or dress, as seen at Jill Stuart. If you’re not into bows on clothing, try the trend on accessories! See Brad Goreski’s favorite fashion week bag highlighting the trend in this video, or mimic the Jenny Packham runway and use a thin ribbon to secure your ponytail for a feminine touch!

Fall isn’t necessarily the season you think about showing off skin. But this year, designers went for an understated approach with sheer fabrics and cutouts. The styles were subtly sexy, with slips of skin peeking through. Reem Acra even made fishnet look classy!

Spring is usually a time for color to bloom. But designers tapped into their dark side this season. Head-to-toe black looked sweet thanks to flirty silhouettes and lacy fabrics. The result? A little good-girl, a little bad.
