Runway fashion trends can be a little extreme for everyday wear, but runway trends are great sources for inspiration.  We can mimic looks we’ve seen by wearing similar colors or silhouettes.

As much as I love many of the Fall 2010 trends (military inspired outerwear, 1970’s silhouettes, baroque n roll/aka Prince inspired pieces, and the minimalist trend), I still find myself sticking to classic Fall pieces.  Keeping in mind the “look” that I’m going for; i.e., by pairing a classic cardigan with cropped trousers and maryjane wedges, keeps the overall look classic and lady-like (another trend seen on the Fall runways).

Below are some easy-to-wear Fall favorites that resemble runway trends.


Industry chunky knit sweater, Brown chunky sweater, Ecote Intarsia cardigan


Samantha Peet pants, Current/Elliott cargo pants, BB Dakota trousers


Madison Harding platforms, Jeffrey Campbell wedge, Topshop Proud boot


Pendleton camel fedora, Cheap Monday hinge ring, Topshop sheepskin cape
