Fall's Matador Trend Will Have You Fighting Bulls

Sometimes, a girl just needs a little extra armor. And what better way to toughen up than traditional Spanish matador style? There were so many bullfighter references on the fall runways—from D&G to Fendi to Antonio Berardi—that we half expected a bull to come trotting down alongside the models just for added effect. No such luck. But nothing says fearless like a pair of crisp, high waisted pants, a bolero, or any other bullfighting gear you might come across. So whether you're out there slaying bulls in a literal or figurative matador's arena, you'll be good to go.
