No longer reserved for seams, exposed zippers were all over the runways at NY Fashion Week. Notably the most unexpected trend for fall, zippers are adorning everything you can imagine. How do you wear it? Try some accessories (like pumps or jewelry) for an understated touch or go bold with a funky dress in a rich fall color. Ready to zip it up? Click here to explore.

James Perce has perfected the art of casual luxury and has his hands on the pulse of several hot trends for fall.
Ladies, ditch your heavy coats and load up on oversized knits for Fall. This cozy cover-up adds warmth as the temperature drops but is also a multi-functional piece. Instead of putting away your Summer maxi-dresses transition them into fall with an oversized knit sweater. The James Perse “Boiled Cut Away Cardigan ” offers casual luxury with its 4 button turtleneck collar and wrap closure. I would pair this piece with a long skirt or maxi dress and peep toes pumps.
This season you will see pleats on everything from clothing to accessories. Pleats allow you to express your girly side and add a touch of old Hollywood glamour to your look. James Perse offers a great knit this season (Open Drape Jacket ) in a luxurious pleated jersey blend that would look great over one of your floral dress for fall. Finish the look with a slim skinny belt, opaque tights, fabulous heels and a great handbag.

Miuccia Prada set the fashion world abuzz when she debuted her lace-y fall line at Fashion Week. Trendsetters and fashionistas alike have been craving this delicate fabric ever since. The absolute best thing about lace is its versatility. What other fabric allows you to be ultra feminine, uber romantic or the ultimate rocker chic at the blink of an eye? This season designers are experimenting with lace in innovative ways. They are layering different colors and textures which has lead to some wickedly creative concoctions. My favorite part of this trend has been seeing jewelry designers incorporate lace into their little masterpieces. Ready to get your hands on this trend? Click here to explore.

Grandmothers always have the best pearls. They are a dependable, go-to classic which look regal whenever you see them in the family album. This season designers are taking a step out of the box by updating this classic. You'll find pearls de-constructed, embellished, and encrusted on everything from clothing to accessories. John Paul Gaultier puts a pearl necklace on his booties, Phillip Lim features them on his neckline and Alexander McQueen creates pearl flowers on his bolero. Ready to try some pearls on for size?
