Just when you think you're one step ahead of the game, designers push the seasonal envelope with another onslaught of covet-worthy collections to contend with. That's right, Pre-Fall 2013 is here. Sure, the pieces may not be available for a while, nor will they be all that applicable come warm-weather turnaround, but — and this is a big but — there is enough spot-on styling inspiration inside to cultivate a fresh spin on your wintry wares now. If you're on the lookout for a new layered approach, Christopher Kane's sweatshirt-over-a-gown look provides a good starting point. If you plan on sticking to feminine silhouettes, Lanvin's punched-up prints, albeit showcased on the most classic of silhouettes, might be exactly what your styling M.O. needs. Or, if you're just craving a midseason pick-me-up, Erdem's bold floral prints and structured drop-waist dresses are kind of amazing. Click on for the best of Pre-Fall 2013, and keep in mind that next season's fashion can be today's outfit fodder.
