A particularly fresh and delightful alternative to white, this pretty, unexpected pastel emerged in dress form at Tory Burch and Vera Wang, and cropped up on suiting separates at Rachel Roy and Rodarte. To get the full scoop on this newest shade of green, watch our trend report now!
It seems like we blinked and London Fashion Week was over, and now Milan Fashion Week is in full swing.

Our report to come soon, but right now we're obsessing over a few looks from London Fashion Week that has us counting the days to Spring (yes, already). Click through to see our favorite looks from London's top designers, including Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, Peter Pilotto, and Roksanda Ilincic.
>> Perhaps it's a backlash to all of the die-hard, all-black donning stylefiles out there, but bold prints have taken Fashion Week street style by storm. Not for wallflowers, these attention-grabbing prints are a sure way to get you snapped in no time at all — we're especially smitten with the bold houndstooth blouse, apple-print trousers, and vibrant plaid coat, seen above. There's no better way to take the gloom out of a cold Winter's day — so shop our eye-catching printed picks below.

>> Fall 2011 Fashion Week street style has us seeing red — specifically red pants — in every direction. From editors, like Anna Dello Russo in her Prada 'fit, to other fresh attendees, we couldn't help but notice the influx of this bright hue interpreted into wide-leg trousers and skinnier cuts. Want to get in on the action? Check out our fine picks below!

Two cities down, two more to go! London Fashion Week wrapped up yesterday, and we're here to give you all you need to know on the top trends. Graphic prints, miniskirts, and experimental silhouettes were among the ideas presented for Fall, and color made a return to the Fall runway. Click our slideshow to get the full scoop on what came out of London Fashion Week.
>> Peplum details were highlighted all over the Fall 2011 runways. Designers like Thakoon, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, and Cushnie et Ochs all showed covetable pieces and we can't wait to get our hands on them. However, their delectable pieces are months (and months) away from hitting stores. Bummer. Might we suggest you satiate your shopping urge with our tempting peplum picks available right now? Ready, set, shop!
>> The '70s revival isn't just about the clothes, groovy accessories also played a big role on the Spring runways. Designers like Marc Jacobs, Edun, and Lacoste showed a selection of throwback jewels and adornments in their collections like chunky bangles, wood necklaces, oversized plastic sunnies, and obi belts. Get into the groove right now with our freshly plucked picks from Ben Uman, Alexis Bittar, and Anthropologie.
>> Designers, like Dries Van Noten, Monique Lhuillier, Celine, and Derek Lam, have reverted back to the wide-leg pant for Spring, and there's no need to wait until warmer weather to try out the trend. A crisp cotton version is ideal for a casual day at work, while silkier options add panache for a night out in the town. Shop our fantastic finds from Adam, Gap, Vince, and Marc Jacobs to get the look now.
>> Designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Erdem, and Valentino showed plenty of lace creations on their runways, which only means one thing: Spring will be blooming with fresh femininity. We suggest you get in gear and amp up your current Winter wardrobe now with cozier key picks, like a sharp lace and leather coat from Valentino, and then later, come warmer weather, with a perfect pair of shorts from Diane von Furstenberg.
>> Denim has always been an everyday staple, but Spring's upcoming edition will spotlight more than just jeans. Designers like Celine, Derek Lam, and Stella McCartney brought attention to numerous denim pieces on their runways. Think structured denim tops and jackets, skirts, and vests dipped in medium to light washes. Don't wait for the sun to start shining to wear this trend: get a head start on it today with our picks from Chloe, Topshop, Stella McCartney, and APC.
