What’s black and white and red all over? Fall 2013 fashion, of course. And nobody could be more delighted than me—to be told by the fashion authorities that wearing all black is on trend pretty much confirms everything I have thought for, well, my whole life. AND RED!?!? My favorite outfit fashion color ever?! I am elated to see various shades of red strutting down the runways for fall (though the bright, vibrant hue à la Valentino is my favorite, as some of you may remember from this post). That’s not to say that none of the designers toyed with color, but more that the “OYGBIV” remainder of the rainbow made a rather rare appearance as an unexpected pop within a neutral and mono-tone background.
So let’s take a look at some of a few looks that caught my eye during days 1-4 of fashion week, including a few of those unexpected pops.
