It's no secret that Alexander Wang's Fall 08 collection is one of our biggest inspirations for our upcoming Fall wardrobes. Lucky for us, his specific mix of masculinity and femme fatale was echoed at the Burberry, Max Mara and Rick Owens shows, too. Nothing says serious Fall fashion like a looming darkness and strength - and we're glad the designers are in on it, too. So pull out your boyfriend blazer and borrow his beenie hat, with your hair pulled down of course - and what could be sexier than that? --LEAH MELTZER
The Top Trends from the Fall 2013 Runways
Four cities, one season: Fall 2013. Nemo kicked the collections off and every city to follow added its own dose of wintry chill. Somehow all that cold weather caused a discernible note of restraint to float through the collections. Don’t worry--the passion and excitement were still there, but designers actively pursued defining new ways we can really dress next fall. These looks felt grounded in the return of the “Lady," as fashion’s pendulum swung away from the risqué, toward the refreshingly refined (spike-studded shoulders be damned). Check out our top trends for fall in the slide show.
