Even though temperatures are still sizzling, there was a hint of fall fashion in the air at the recent Neiman Marcus Trend Event. Shoppers got a first look at some of fall's A-list styles during a runway show. Here's a sneak preview of what's in store:
Green is a big color for fall - either worn in one shade head-to-toe or mixed in several hues.
Borrowed from the Boys
Go ahead and raid your boyfriend's closet. Or go shopping. Designers are featuring the men's look for fall, as evidenced in this ensemble of tailored vest, white shirt and dark slacks. A brooch on the vest adds a feminine touch.

Navy is the new neutral because it can be paired with black or bright colors. Also hot for fall: A brooch can be a perfect accent for any outfit.

The Leather Leg
So tight that it's like a second skin. So sexy.
High Impact Handbag
The bigger the better. This look incorporates other fall trends, too, with leather pants, fur vest and fedora with a brooch attached.
Karina Barbieri, who attended the show, could pass for a runway model.
Note the slacks with a modern pattern.
Mix in some leather
Dresses with leather insets continue a spring trend right into fall.
A studded jacket can make a statement. It's paired with slacks that add a pop of color.
