With the AW13 season behind us, we can't wait to see the clothes transition from show floor to retail to our closets. There's something to love for every type of personality this season, from the antifashion girl to the biggest peacock in the bunch. And, what better way to showcase the best women's trends of AW13 then with cute illustrations? Scroll through to check out what you can expect to show up in a big way this fall.

Workwear for Her

The antifashion girl loves sexy, for-the-boys classics and right now gravitates toward artisinal touches like real indigo dyed fabrics, utilitarian-inspired silhouettes, the basic white shirt and new iterations of the denim jacket.


Three-dimensional knits give a whole new meaning to surface interest. Textured stitch work, appliques, patches, fringe and other elements that pop on garments feel right now.


90's Princess

Clubwear of yesteryear is a major influence as oversized sweaters and dropped shoulders meet lace babydoll or stretch velvet body conscious dresses. Strategic cut-outs, allover print leggings and platforms round out the look.

More More More

Lady peacocks want luxe for AW13. A sophisticated mash up of piled on layers - think hand knitted cashmere, textured leather, decadent fur and lucious tweed - over printed or hammered silk gets the point across.


Slouchy Bottoms

Whether it's the sweatpants worn with heels look we've come to love or menswear-inspired bottoms with a slightly dropped crotch, soft, drapey trousers continue to be the key bottom for directional women this season.
