5 fashion trends Pippa Middleton should try this fall

Pippa Middleton style: Head-to-toe colour

Pippa Middleton has all the makings of a style icon—for proof, see that iconic, derriere-flattering McQueen maid-of-honour gown. But while we love this traffic-stopping poppy hue of this frock for running around the city, the matching red flats do nothing to accentuate her amazing athletic figure.

Fall fashion trend: 1940s style

Luckily, the ’40s-inspired trend this fall is all about highlighting a feminine silhouette. This neutral-tone dress with a flush of crimson red from Bottega Veneta has all the eye-popping detail Pippa so clearly craves for her look, but is presented in a sophisticated, while still playful, knee-length dress. Note the casual, menswear-inspired heel. Fall 2013 fashion trends: The 1940s

Pippa Middleton style: Office dressing

We love tossing on cute and airy frocks as much as the next girl, but there’s something so intangibly polished about carefully crafting a totally unique ensemble. Again, Pippa’s red flats do add a pop of colour, but a sleek black or cobalt heel would be better suited if wearing this look to the office.

Fall fashion trend: White

Pippa totally nailed her Royal Wedding white look, and this fall, white-on-white is an impossibly sleek trend seen at Valentino, Isabel Marant and here, at Céline. Worn as separates with slightly contrasting tones, white takes on a whole new daring look. Add a pair of military green calf boots for a bold finish. GALLERY: 50-plus fall shoes

Pippa Middleton style: Date dressing

This is your all-around classic (and classy) look, and Pippa has kept to a fittingly neutral colour palette for the occasion. But the entire look just seems rigid—perhaps a more interesting blouse or vibrant bag would help make Pippa’s look a little more outstanding. Fall fashion trends: Film-noir style

5 fashion trends Pippa Middleton should try this fall

Fall fashion trend: Black and white

It’s clear that Pippa, like many of us, has a penchant for mixing neutral tones. But the stark contrast of black and white together in one ensemble creates a razor-sharp polish. Add in an interesting cut—like this oversized coat with rounded shoulders at Proenza Schouler—for an instantly striking silhouette. Proenza Schouler Fall 2013: Our top 20 runway looks

Pippa Middleton style: Ladylike style

The fitted dress, the lace, and floral print—it’s everything your younger, girlish self would imagine a Sunday dress to be. But an asymmetrically cut neckline or shorter length would add some much-needed womanly edginess to the look Ladylike trend lesson: 6 ways to get the Kate Middleton look

Fall fashion trend: Poppy prints

This season, anything printed is better. Seriously. Take the camouflage-patterned fur coat at Michael Kors or the parade of heart-stamped dresses at Burberry. Or this totally Pippa-worthy daintily printed Carolina Herrera dress. The pretty bow neckline and slim, floor-length silhouette is a powerful—if provocative—statement from the usually demure Pippa.

Pippa Middleton style: Monochrome

While there’s something show-stopping and boldly chic about a monochromatic outfit, we can’t say that we’re in love with this head-to-toe mint green look for Pippa. And matching your cardi to the rest of your outfit is never a good sign for anyone other than the schoolteachers of yore. Fall fashion: How to wear colour this season

Fall fashion trend: Blue

Swap out the girlish, allover pastel hue for a deeper, sultrier shade of royal blue this season (be it navy or cobalt). We love the casual elegance of a sheer blue blouse and matching pajama-style pants, paired with sleek brown loafers. Fall’s looking good on you, Pippa. Fall 2013 fashion trends: Blue
