Four fashion weeks, hundreds of ways to look stylish this fall

Pariswrap New York, London, Milan, Paris. Los Angeles Times fashion critic Booth Moore spent the last month in a whirlwind of runway shows in the world's style capitals, eyeing designers' visions for women's ready-to-wear for fall-winter 2011. She reported many of the details in All the Rage posts filed from the shows.

Before she hopped on a plane home from Paris last week, she sent us a story summarizing the best of Paris' fine fashion, which you can read here.

Then she distilled all of the hundreds of offerings from all four cities into her picks for the top five trends (hint: how often do you see the words "glam" and "grunge" juxtaposed?). Read about it here.

But Booth knows that what the designers imagine on the runways is only a part of the story. It's also important to know how retail buyers react to it, because they are the conduits from the catwalk to your closet. She asked a few of the most influential to share their thoughts on the season's big ideas and must-haves.

Grab a mimosa and settle down with your laptop. If you're a true fashionista, you'll want to check out what Booth and the retailers have to say -- and review our galleries of photos shot on the runways too.

Italian designers like Versace, Cavalli, and, of course, Armani, make fantastic suits. Italian designers understand the curves of the feminine form and know how to use them to accentuate the body without being too risqué. You can be professional and sexy at the same time. Your prospects of succeeding at work are better when you look good as people tend to attract more towards you. So be fashionable & look good. Source:
