The Dos and Don'ts of Fall 2013 Fashion Trends

  • DO invest in eye-catching outerwear.

    Statement-making outerwear manifested itself in a bevy of ways this season (think bold furs, oversize parkas, and cool leathers).
    DON'T be afraid to experiment with various colors, lengths, and textures.
    DO consider the rest of your outfit when rocking these coats. Keep everything else simple.

    • DON'T forget a super-cute hat.

      We saw cool caps at just about every show, including Kate Spade and Tracy Reese.
      DO remember this motto: When in doubt, put a beanie on it!
      DON'T forget the other types of hats you can wear this season. Fedoras, floppy knits, and even baseball caps are at your disposal.

    • DO pick up an emerald green piece.

      Pantone chose the shade as its top color for 2013, so it's no wonder that it was spotted all over the fall 2013 runways.
      DON'T ignore how cute emerald green can look when paired with other jewel tones, such as garnet, amethyst, and sapphire.
      DO look for different ways to incorporate the shade into your wardrobe. A structured bag or high heels in this vibrant hue is like an exclamation point at the end of your ensemble.

      • DON'T bail on the peplum.

        It's the trend that won't die, so hop on the bandwagon if you haven't already!
        DO find the right peplum for you. Where it's placed on a dress, shirt, or skirt can determine just how good you look.
        DON'T underestimate how flattering a peplum can be. It can help define your waist or add curves to a boyish figure.
