Given all the elaborate baroque pieces we saw go down the fall runways last February, we expect to see editors rocking lush, embellished pieces like this gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana mini-dress, which features an embroidered floral motif and nude lace panels.

Fall's romantic lace looks like this magenta and black lace pencil skirt from Jason Wu will appeal to girlier Fashion Week attendees. For contrast, we love the look styled with tougher separates like this cap-sleeve black blouse.

If head-to-toe lace feels too feminine, opt for an updated basic like L'Agence's white lace T-shirt, which features a more modern, geometric lace motif. $390 at Net-a-Porter.

Tough leather skirts with a flowy, A-line silhouette like this textured edition from Reed Krakoff are already trickling into our favorite stores and e-commerce boutiques, and we're betting the look will resonate with top fashion editors at the tents this season.

Scarlet hues make a major impact on the catwalk or a city sidewalk. This season, Lanvin used the shade to dramatic effect on peplum-waist jackets and slim pencil skirts.

Alexander Wang's simple silk mesh button-down would make the plainest of fall outfits pop. We recommend trying it with your favorite slouchy jeans and a patent leather boot. $329 at MyTheresa.

Another trend that's picking up steam this season is the updated "smoking slipper," so named for its keen resemblance to the comfy-luxe shoe favored by the likes of Hugh Hefner. Here, a textured leather version from MM6 by Maison Martin Margiela. $295 at LaGarconne.

Slouchy, oversized knits with bold prints and patterns were a key theme on the runways this season, and no matter the weather this week, the look—which was perhaps most memorable in stripey oranges and reds at Proenza Schouler—is sure to turn up at the tents.
