2012 Fall Fashion Trends

Retailers highlighted painterly prints on the runway during Fashion Week, such as this Nicole Miller suit, as a key trend that could turn up in their stores come fall.

Leather will be hot this fall, chain store buyers said. Pictured is a Derek Lam leather skirt from fall Fashion Week.

Feminized menswear looks from designers such as Ralph Lauren are expected to maintain their trendy appeal.

Move over, color blocking: Now fabric blocking, seen on this Nicole Miller dress, is gaining steam, retail buyers said.

This fall, stores could be awash in wine colors, seen on this Narciso Rodriguez dress.

The color black, as well as mod looks from the 1960s that’s exemplified by this Calvin Klein dress, are expected to be key in fashion this fall.

Retailers will also be having fun with fur, from fur and faux-fur trimmed sweaters to fur hats. Here’s one from Marc Jacobs.
