50 SUITS OF GREY
Lord, I had hoped that the movie release would mean the end of 50 Shades references, but I was definitely wrong. Designers have made it so by deciding that an all-grey suit was the look, but actually, I agree. Monochromatic in grey is pretty much the chicest thing you can do, so take notes Mizzz Steele.

GET HIGHER (WAISTED)
The waist is making a climb far up past the belly button for a look that is super slimming and very sleek. It's not just a high waist, it's an exaggerated silhouette that results in the look of long, lean legs and a teeny tiny mid-section. Sign me up, immediately!!!

WHO WEARS SHORT SKIRTS?
Guess what? Legs are in! The hemline is short this fall, and not to mention the silhouette is youthful and flattering on just about everyone. No wonder designers far and wide are embracing the power of the mini skirt.

PLAID AND SIMPLE
Plaid is having a moment on the runways, particularly red plaid. Designers are partial to a tartan print and it's not hard to see why: The red adds an interesting dose of color to an otherwise very classic fabric. And since we all are guilty of overdoing black in the winter and black was already very dominant on the runway, it is also nice to see some red to brighten up the mood.
