Top 5 Trends to Try in Fall 2013 — Take Your Pick!

While some of you may still be basking under the sunny skies of Hawaii or experiencing college for the first time, the rest of us are already contemplating what to wear with the advent of fall. If only we could stretch summer for a little bit longer, we’d be able to transition our closets smoothly for the new season ahead. No more denim cutoffs, basic tank tops, bright neon handbags, and slippers because fall is a season that calls for a whole new fashion statement.

Fashion Week shows for fall 2013 had designers exploit their creative juices; Proenza Schouler and Derek Lam focused on highlighting the color white, Rag & Bone went subtle in terms of prints and patterns, Marc Jacobs brought back the love for army green, Jason Wu and Marchesa blew us away with their statement-making pieces, and Prabal Gurung had folkloric designs take over the runway show. We break down all these trends into 5; here they are:
