With each new season comes a set of style rules that stems from the runways—and keeps us from making mistakes. This fall is no exception, although—for a change—there are more ”dos” than faux pas. The reason? The new trends run the gamut, from decades-old prints to modern outerwear that pops. Still, not everything goes. We’ve got your guide to avoiding the “don’t” stamp through winter.
