Get the Look
A microtrend that emerged from the runways for fall is folk-inspired elements--ornate prints, rich colors and detailed embroidery.  Taking cues from around the globe, ethnic prints, like intricate needlepoint from Asian countries or traditional Russian costumes, are perfect for a trendy jet-setter.  It's easy enough to take a printed dress with a great print and pair it with fringed booties.  Adding a vibrant mustard yellow mimics the colors of fall.
