From The Runway To The Racks: Our Fall Fashion Forecast

There's no question that with each passing Fashion Week comes a fresh wave of outfit inspiration. Even though we're viewing collections a season ahead, we can't help but get excited about the new trends parading down the runway. And, we want to wear them now. As the lights come on again after the final model has taken her turn on the runway, we are often left with the fleeting temptation to run backstage and forcibly rip some of the clothes off their backs. We know, we know, this is a bit extreme, but you know what they say: Patience is a virtue...
Well, good news, ladies. For all of you out there who have had just as much trouble as we did, waiting for the fall '12 trends to hit the shelves, we're here to tell you that your time is now. (Who, us, dramatic?) Some of the standout pieces that set the tone for the rest of the season have finally gone into production and are currently available (or at least on pre-order).
In honor of the new season, we've gone back to our notes and found our very favorite trending items from the last New York Fashion Week just in time for the tents to go up again at Lincoln Center. Check out the fall looks we're most excited for, ahead, and have your credit card ready because this time, they come complete with info on where to buy them — now.
