Ken Downing’s Top 10 Trends For Fall

When Ken Downing announces seasonal fashion trends, his Neiman Marcus buyers spring into action. Here are his top picks for autumn:

•Stay warm with a cardigan coat, double-breasted jacket, peplum blazer, fitted bomber jacket or tuxedo jacket in leather, tweed, fur or velvet.

•Try mixed greens (like this dark forest-green cardi coat and rich teal shirt).

•Splurge on leather trousers and skin-tight leggings. Leather is timeless and you will never regret owning it.

•Opt for high-impact statement handbags—size and details matter.

•Look for exuberant digital and optical prints in dresses, blouses and scarves.

•Suit up with a menswear vibe, borrowing tailored details from him, in a way that looks best on her.

•Slip into flat-out chic smoking slippers and luxury loafers in suede, velvet and leather.

•Navy is a super-modern neutral. Pair it with black or brights.

•Group three bejeweled brooches on your jacket. A cluster adds drama.

•Give yourself permission to dress confidently—and dare to sport cherry-red lips this fall.
