After attending the runway shows, experts in the field of fashion are doling out opinions on upcoming trends for this fall. Following are fashion collection suggestions from Harper's Bazaar, Style.com and Marie Claire.
Harper's loved lots of trends showcased on the catwalk, especially 1960s-inspired fashions, including Peter Pan collars, patent shifts and double-breasted peacoats. The color pink made the grade in all shades and many shows, with Jil Sander offering uber-pale options and Dior featuring fuschia. Harper's also loved the "granny chic" trends, oohing and aahing over fuzzy sweaters and crochet shawls from the likes of Oscar De La Renta and Tory Burch. Lastly, menswear and militarism will make it big in the fall, according to Harper's stylists.

Style.com focused on three major fads that they say will be amongst fall's greatest hits. Fur will be big and was included in collections from Fendi, Jason Wu, Mulberry and Rodarte. The forward-looking fashionistas were over the moon for oversized coats, especially in styles shown by Celine, Chloe and Balenciaga. Black leather rounded out the top three with prime pieces by Proenza Schouler, Givenchy and Versace.
Marie Claire's fall fashion forecasts featured four fabulous color trends. Burgundy was big, especially as seen in shows by Jason Wu, Diane Von Furstenberg, Christian Siriano and Nanette Lepore. "Winter White" went over well with wonderful pieces by Alexander Wang, Derek Lam and Peter Som. Elie Saab and Michael Kors went glam with gold and finally the magazine said it loved the pairing together of black and blue as seen in shows designed by DKNY, Preen and Carolina Hererra. Other fall fashion inspirations that went over well were designers showing off lots of leather, seen in collections by Derek Lam, Rodarte and Michael Kors. Last but not least, military pieces by Jason Wu, Tommy Hilfiger and Victoria Beckham got plenty of props.
