Trend Report: Transition Pieces for Fall Fashion

Although fall is just around the corner, the summer heat does not seem to be leaving any time soon. Rather than waiting until cooler weather to sport the hottest fall trends, we are looking to key transition pieces that are just as wearable now.


The fall 2012 runways revealed a wide variety of trends for the upcoming season. While cooler weather trends like leather, high necklines, and fur dominated the shows, encrusted embellishments, lace, and bold prints gave new energy to these staples. Pastels, for example, were given a sophisticated and sexy look; floral prints showed a far-east influence in design. Even the structure of solid-colored clothing revealed an architectural form for fall. Though we’d love to cover all of our current obsessions, we wanted to showcase our three favorite trends to keep you stylish through the end summer and into the fall.
