2011 Fall Trend Recap

Fashion famously works in cycles; what goes in must come out, and vice versa. And no matter how much we still love the color-blocking trend or the all-white look, summer is soon to be over.
And if you think fall is just about layers and warmth, take a look at 2011 fall trend recap below.
The new collections came in happy hues and the-bolder-the-better brights, some new takes on old favorites that'll have you looking at your wardrobe in a whole new way.

Brightly Coloured Pants
Yigal Azrouel, Karen Walker, Prabal Gurung, 3.1 Philip Lim
Whether they were cropped, flared, tapered, or high-waisted, the hottest shapes of the season also came in super-saturated hues, perfectly for punching up the clean silhouettes for fall.

Leather Skirts
Rachel Comey, Tommy Hilfiger, Vena Cava, Marc Jacobs
Designers found a new way to wear the leather skirt, and paired it with casual-chic tops like heather-gray button-ups and sweatshirt-like sweaters.

Tuxido Dressing
Rag & Bone, Thakoon, Band of Outsiders, Chris Benz
The white shirt, black bottom, and black neckpiece never looked so femme-fatale as on the fall '11 runways.

Graphic Tartans
Rag & Bone, Thakoon, Band of Outsiders, Chris Benz
Plaids and tartans went big and bold this fall, with designers finding more inspiration from in-your-face rustic weaves than the understated checks of seasons past.

High Slits
Jenni Kayne, Preen, Altuzara, Jeremy Laing
Dresses may have veered more on the conservative side, but a healthy dose of sexiness was still preserved with hip-grazing slits.

The Great Length
BCBG Maxazria, Proenza Schouler, Narciso Rodriguez, Marc by Marc Jacobs
Hemlines were still long this season, but we're finding more and more to love from the mid-calf lengths than ever before. In cool metallics, graphic mixed prints, and with menswear tailoring, these full-coverage skirts got a whole lot more sexy.
