Black and navy. Red and green. Historically, we’ve been told to avoid mixing certain hues when planning an outfit – but the Fall 2014 runways have been boldly defying traditional matching rules. Not only is experimenting with color encouraged, but labels like Miu Miu and Prada have proved that unusual combinations help simple wardrobe basics pop. Let’s take a look at two of the season’s liveliest palettes.

Fall Color Combos

Red, pink, and blue coexisted in a sporty Miu Miu look. Borrow these energetic shades with a cobalt Bottega Veneta clutch, a red Salvatore Ferragamo mini shoulder bag, and pink suede Miu Miu loafers.

At Prada, a fuzzy scarlet and mustard coat contrasted in both color and texture against a purple satin dress. Put together a yellow FENDI baguette, a purple patent Salvatore Ferragamo belt, and lipstick red Miu Miu pumps for an equally vibrant tapestry of hues.

Shop these rich hues in our Ciao, Italy: Luxe Style by FENDI & More Boutique, which opens Saturday, September 20, at 11AM ET.

Yesterday, all anyone could talk about were the drones set to broadcast FENDI’s F/W 2014 show. Today, it’s all about what they captured: A stone-faced Cara Delevingne carrying a little Karl Lagerfeld doll down the runway. And here’s the kicker – the creative director’s doppelgänger dolls are set to be this season’s must-have accessory, kind of like how FENDI’s “monsters” were last year.

Drones, dolls, and Delevingne? You sure know how to put on one heck of a show, Karl.

It looks like the ultra preppy aren’t the only ones rocking the popped collar these days. Thanks to street-style photos by Nam of STREETFSN, we’ve been seeing the trend at both Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks.

Although a popped collar brings the cotton polo shirt to mind, that isn’t what’s happening here. Instead, street-style photos show the collar of a button-front shirt strategically poking out from under a turtleneck sweater or a crewneck sweatshirt with a tied handkerchief.

Is it a clever way of beating the winter chill? Or is it just a passing trend that looks uncomfortably snug around the neckline? We’ll just have to wait and see.
