Fall Fashion Trends 2013:
REASONS TO LOVE IT
Who doesn't want to rule the fashion kingdom? Designers delivered a menagerie of dresses, skirts, shorts, sweaters, and coats often mixed with furreal, faux, or screen-printed. All you need now is a fierce attitude.
HOW TO WORK IT
Note how buttoned up these outfits are, even the sexy ones. (Tom Ford's slinky feathered, high-neck, sequined gown, anyone?) You don't want to look like a cougar so avoid anything extra tight or revealing. Pair with solids like black, brown, or grayor combine with other prints like polka dots (yes, it works), in a similar palette. Saint Laurent tempered its ocelot topper with a grunge floral dress, then toughened it up with a punkish motorcycle boots and sheer black stockings.

Evangeline Lilly swept onto the red carpet at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug premiere in a black slightly sheer Alberta Ferretti gown with a lace overlay and tiers of tulle at the skirt, keeping all accessories to a minimum, save for studs and a gold bracelet.
