Fall florals

Autumn probably isn't the first season to come to mind when you think of flowery patterns. Yet, as these red carpet beauties prove, florals can be a great fall look. To try it yourself, look for thicker fabrics, embroidery or beads to make it feel more substantial and less springlike.

Choosing blush, that gorgeous color that's somewhere between a nude and a light pink, is the perfect way to look subtly chic.

A trend that works for women of all ages? That's a look we can get behind! Sheer panels with a hint of polka dots popped up on several dresses on the red carpet.

There's no need to stick to only one jewel-tone color, as Jane Krakowski and Natalie Morales demonstrate. Adding a touch of jade and a hint of amethyst respectively, the two fashionistas took their dresses to the next level.

There's something about this mermaid-inspired silhouette that feels ultra-glamorous. Seen here on TODAY style expert Lilliana Vazquez and actress Neve Campbell, the curve-hugging shape is about as black tie as you can get — just don't try to run a mile in it.
