As Leah has noted in the past, the Pitti peacocks give the Paris fashion week editrixes a run for their money. Needless to say I had a lot of fun looking at them--but, more than that, I wanted to copy all their looks. From fresh white linen suits to all-over tropical print, there was no shortage of style inspiration.

Trend to Steal: White Linen Suit

Femme the Trend: This is your chance to live out your Bianca Jagger fantasies. Go for disco heels and a flamboyant pocket square, either tucked into the pocket or tied around your neck, and, most importantly, forgo a top underneath the blazer (occasion, permitting).

The Goods: Uniqlo linen jacket, $40; Black Brown pocket square, $25; J.Crew pants, $165; Zara shoes, $50

Trend to Steal: All-Over Tropical Print

Femme the Trend: I characterize this look as Hawaii-surfer-goes-to-the-city. Surfer/skater looks were all over Pitti (both on the street and in the trade tents) and they'll no doubt be seeping into the women's shows for spring 2014. Instead of shorts or pants, work the all-over tropical print trend with a pretty, form-fitting skirt. Pair with a bright bag and simple sandals to keep the look from trying too hard.

The Goods: J. Crew top, $178; Westward Leaning sunglasses, $178; Zara clutch, $60; J. Crew skirt, $258; Madewell sandals, $60.

Trend to Steal: Bermuda Shorts

Femme the Trend: Yep, this trend has legs in the menswear department too. Take note of the way menswear style god Nick Wooster wears it: With a buttoned down shirt and minimal accessories. Except steer away from dad territory by wearing these shorts with killer heels, bright beads, and to channel Kate Moss here, add a jaunty hat.

The Goods: Panama hat, $58; Sid Mashburn beads, $25; Aquazzura shoes, $490; ASOS long line shorts, $35; ASOS blouse, $35.

Trend to Steal: Shorts Suit in Unexpected Fabrics

Femme the Trend: This season the menswear-fave shorts suit popped up in a wild array of fabrics, patterns and colors, including sweatsuits, seersucker, and African-inspired prints. It's a tough look to pull off, to be honest, but leather shorts with a coordinated (though not necessarily completely matched) jacket work. And, especially when paired with point-toe pumps, the look is anything but dude-ly.

The Goods: Tibi blazer, $450; Tibi leather shorts, $556; Topshop heels, $96; Ray-Ban sunglasses, $99

Trend to Steal: Backpack

Femme the Trend: All over the tradeshow, men accessorized their street-casual look with hyper-athletic gear. The point of this trend, if you're going to try it, is to keep the rest of your look away from sportswear. Throw on a backpack with a cute summer dress for insta-cool.

The Goods: Clockwise: Haerfest, $525; Outdoor Products, $150; American Apparel, $49
