Posted on September 23, 2013 | 11:22am | Travel Costa Mesa

As temperatures cool and days shorten, it’s time to hang-up the summer styles and step out in 2013’s fall fashion trends.  With the recent Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York debuting this season’s styles, it’s time to take a look at five major seasonal fashion trends at South Coast Plaza.

South Coast Plaza Fall PortfolioInspired by the punk movement of the ‘70s and ‘80s, top boutiques like Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel and Versace have created styles that will inspire you to channel the days of famous rock club CBGB and legendary punk bands like the Ramones and the Clash.  With tartan, vinyl, studs and chains, the edgy look is a major trend this season.

If edgy isn’t necessarily your style, another fall trend is candy-coated, pastel colors.   Chloe, Louis Vuitton and Gucci all have light, fun candy-colored shades and illuminating pastels like baby blue, lavender and powder pink for a more energetic, “pick-me-up” look.Pastels Fall FashionLanvin and Prada have reimagined classic masculine styles like herringbone, houndstooth and plaid in feminine cuts to create another major fall fashion trend.  A modern twist can be worn with the timeless men’s fabrics when embroidered or draped like silk.

Mid-century fashion with nipped-waist coats and chic skirt suits bring cinematic, film-noir styles back for the fall.  Christian Dior, Bottega Veneta and Miu Miu will make you look like the star of a Hitchcock thriller by recalling the glamorous style of film noir.
