If you thought florals were only for spring, think again. Dark hues and cold-weather details — like embroidery, lace and long sleeves — make this trend perfect for fall and winter.

All-white everything

Instead of an LBD (little black dress), why not try a LWD? Or a little white suit, for that matter. These celebrities proved that nothing's cleaner than a monochromatic outfit in a crisp shade.

Brocade suits

Patterns are not just for pretty dresses! This rich fabric that includes a metallic thread is the perfect way to stand out in a crowd. And, yes, this trend is great for men and women alike.
