BCBG Max Azria's Fall 2013 collection was a '90s-inspired, multilayered glimpse at what we'll be wearing later this year (if not right now). With bone-chilling temperatures plaguing the East Coast, there's a chance we may be copying the cool dresses-over-pants-over-long-sleeved-shirts look as soon as tomorrow. And the beanies! We couldn't get over the slouchy, grunge-chic knit beanies that graced each model's head — a nod to gypset glamour meets downtown elegance. Click on to watch the full BCBG Max Azria runway show now, and let us know what you think of the collection!
Whether you're trying to combat a bad hair day or just looking to add extra pizzazz to your everyday ensembles, look no further than these 10 celeb-approved hats. We love the way Gwen Stefani took her edgy leather look to new heights via a plaid newsboy cap, how Hilary Duff accessorized her travel style with a two-toned Rag & Bone topper, and how Reese Witherspoon got cozy in a blue striped beanie. From fedoras and fisherman caps to beanies and buckets, cruise through to see which other stars have been wearing hats, then add a few, including exact items, to your Fall mix.
Kristin Cavallari may have just had a baby boy, but her sheer stripe BCBGMAXAZRIA top ($85), red leather Veda skirt, and beige ankle-strap Zara platforms showed off her fit figure while running errands in Hollywood. In true SoCal manner, Kristin completed her look with a no-fuss ponytail, gold hoop earrings, and her engagement ring. Black leather skirts are abundant in Hollywood, but oxblood is quickly becoming the It color for Fall, which is why we particularly love Kristin's choice. Pair a dark red leather skirt with everything from a printed button-down blouse for the office to this colorful Madewell cardigan ($92) for a cozy date night.
Elizabeth Olsen fought the NYC chill in a stylish layered look complete with chic accessories — blue suede Pour La Victoire oxfords ($250), a rust BCBGMAXAZRIA fedora ($24, originally $58), and a classic black leather tote. The actress started with a knit oatmeal sweater and black leather pants, then layered a blue peacoat and red-piped scarf for extra warmth. Shop Elizabeth's exact shoes and hat to work with slick leather pants — or these faux leather Romeo & Juliet Couture leggings ($49, originally $130) —and a cozy oatmeal sweater and navy peacoat for a street-chic style that's both fashionable and functional.

If we told you leather, lace, and harnesses dominated BCBG’s Spring 2013 collection, you might think designers Max and Lubov Azria were up to some sexy provocation, but when delivered via fluid silhouettes and with plenty of soft silk, the result was a dreamy mix of ethereal and utilitarian. Dresses dominated, most of them in silk crepe cut with cream or black lace, and all worn with a leather harness. Sounds weird, but it worked, and there are sure to be some street stylers sporting the trend next season. Show notes said the collection was inspired by the femme fatale muses and high contrast of Helmut Newton's black and white photography, a message that was felt in the sculptural cuts of a black crepe dress with strong shoulders. There was a quieter second story involving denim, which was used as a detail rather than the main fabric, but this didn't feel as compelling as the combination of leather and lace on a flowy dress.
- Trends: Leather harnesses, lace, sculptural proportions, jumpsuits.
- Colors: Black, coral, talc, dusty pink.
- Key Piece: The opening set of talc crepe shirt dresses with harnesses made a big statement.
- Accessories: Leather portfolios and perforated leather ankle-strap shoes.
- Who Should Wear It: You have to be brave to don the harness, and Zoe Saldana could definitely pull this off, but let's look for Selita Ebanks to don one of the dresses as she was sitting in the front row.
