It’s back and classier than ever, the military style invaded the catwalks this year thanks to designers such as Barbara Bui, Jason Wu, Moschino Cheap & Chic, Topshop Unique, Victoria Beckham and Burberry Prorsum. The trend influenced by World War II has had some update overhauls and this season that means lots of large gold buttons, khaki colors and multi-pocketed outfits.

The catwalk fall collections shone this year with gold a stand out color. Elie Saab, Barbara Bui, Tibi, Prabal Gurung and Michael Kors all featured plenty of bling in their collections with gold, teal and orange being the main players. 1970’s disco style has never completely disappeared and its influence is still going strong through gold couture dresses and suits in jade and pink glitter.

Thakoon, Kevork Kiledjian, Derek Lam, Reem Acra have all developed a whole new leather look, it’s seems there’s no such thing as “too much.” The look has slowly been making a come-back in recent collections but this fall it is a main player, with the long-sleeved leather dress a favorite for both Reem Acra and Kevork Kiledjian’s collections accompanied by black leather stilettos.

Rebecca Minkoff, Zac Posen, Tata-Naka and Antonio Berardi were just some of the designers focusing on burnt orange this year using it as a solid block color on the catwalk that really made a statement. In contrast to recent collections that have used neon or pastels, fall styles look to be embracing more seasonal browns, oranges and deep reds.

Louis Vuitton, Jason Wu and Nicole Miller also embraced headwear in a big way while Donna Karan opted for the mini top-hat to complete the runway look.
