Fall Fashion Trends 2013:
REASONS TO LOVE IT
We've had seasons of ladylike looks, but these clothes truly honor a womanly shape. Don't get us wrongthere's nothing stereotypically feminine here. The look is stripped down and unfussy, with sculptural lines that play up your real curves.
HOW TO WORK IT
Pair round-shoulder coats and boxy, bell-sleeve jackets with tailored pants and fitted skirts to let the strong silhouettes stand out. Accessories should be understateda large clutch and a choker or long earrings are all you need. For a slimming effect, try pieces with detailing down the front (the the Richard Chai and Maje dresses a couple of clicks away), which give the illusion of hourglass proportions.
