Fall fashion campaigns are finally in print! We’re matching them up with our favorite BurdaStyle designs for on trend autumn dressing.

Harper’s Bazaar just posted a list of the best Fall 2013 ad campaigns, and these gorgeous shots have me ready to pull together some fall looks. Dressing for cooler weather has so many fun opportunities to layer different fabrics and textures. Here are six of the hottest campaigns for fall, and the BurdaStyle designs to make these trendy looks at home.

High street retail giant Zara lined up models Juliane Grüner, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Ashleigh Good and Julia Nobis for a moody spread of slipdresses and witchy hats (with serious hints of Saint Laurent’s Spring 2013 collection). For a similar look, make the Top Drawer Slip or the gorgeous Bambi nightie with sweet flutter sleeves in black satin. Top them off with the Soft Leather Jacket (in black, of course) and a felt hat.

A gorgeous Honor ad, shot by Yelena Yemchuck, shows one simple but gorgeous brocade dress. Take up the hemline of our Split V Neck Dress in allover lace for an equally rich-feeling look. To really capture the couture vibe, mix two different lace fabrics for the bodice and body.

3.1 Philip Lim’s gritty ads by But Sou Lai show off colorblocking in graffiti colors. Take a look at the Block Party collection for similar colorblocked patterns. The Colorblock Pullover would be so fun with a faux leather panel added!

Equestrian style is almost always trending in fall. Copycat Ralph Lauren’s style with our Puff Sleeve Jacket in soft leather (or imitation suede!).

Love the femme fatale look of Giorgio Armani’s cape, wide pants, and red lip? The Pocket Trousers and Cape with Scarf are perfect to steal this look, shot by Mert & Marcus and worn by Mariacarla Boscono.

Another campaign by Zara, this collection of sheer dresses is so relaxed and feminine. These layered designs would look great with a boyfriend cardigan and booties. Go for the flowy Wrap Maxi Dress or High Neck Lace Dress, or shorten it up with the City Dress.

What are your favorite trends for Fall 2013? September issues are starting to arrive, so there’s plenty of inspiration to choose from! I love the girlier looks from Zara, but the Philip Lim look is so modern and fun.

Happy sewing,

    I totally agree that Burda styles are so far behind and cater to older generation. We post comments like that only because we care and we want Burda designers to hear their customers. Please give us something trendier and fun and currant. I agree with Bluet Almeidas comment and as a stylist and a designer I would love to see way more from Burda. Please don’t take this comment in a negative way, but if no one wrights about it, nothing will ever get done

    Obviously the stylists at Burda style are not highly proficient in the field, more focus and selling the patterns already produced by the magazine and used to deal with a public that has a very distant reference of what’s really in fashion. 1) Taking the Ralph Lauren leather jacket as a reference of what’s in style this coming season ? The motorcycle leather jacket is very in style, James Dean style, not puff sleeve and non equestrian lover will ever wear such kind of leather jacket

    2) Zara can’t be taken as a reference of "fashion’ ,firts because is just a big chain, second because it’s well known in the industry that they copy 100% (in bad quality fabrics that has been getting worse for the last 4 seasons) everything that real creators do and even though, romantic flower print dresses are in non collections for this season.

    3) Finally the cape and the wide leg pants are classics, it’s not a trend anymore.

    I am a fashion designer, I have in my hands right now the September issues of Vogue, Harper’s and Elle, and honestly,you are so far away from target that is sad to see.

      People who sew at home are always a little behind trend-wise and that’s perfectly ok. If you recall from any fashion courses you probably took like I did, the general public is almost always behind about 2 years from fashion magazines.

      Second, I’m pretty sure people sewing at home could care less about being overly trendy since they’re essentially doing their own thing and sewing what they want based on an existing Burda pattern, perhaps being inspired by popular fashion along the way. I feel like fashion at this point runs almost from a “trickle up” theory versus “trickle down” like it used to. Fashion trends have accelerated so quickly the past 8 years or so thanks to the internet that practically every style is in fashion every season now. I love that fashion is really about “do your own thing” now even if you may not see it that way. I think many people on this site are all about doing their own thing. This article is merely a suggestion and inspiration of what to do. If people wanted to “follow designers” and designer trends, I’m sure they would have gone out to a fast fashion store like Zara and bought it already.

      And what are you doing for those magazines if I may ask? I wish you posted some of your sewing projects on here so we could see what you’re working on!

    @ lila-1 – Thank you! I could not agree with you more – and am surprised to see just one comment. It is PRECISELY this type of article that serves a multitude of members of multilevel skills in multiple ways, while simultaneously increasing interest in some of the more complex/detailed patterns. By matching up patterns to runway looks, as well as upscale RTW trends, a member who is comfortable sewing novice-level and many intermediate for myself, but has not acquired the “eye” to look at an article of clothing in a fashion magazine and recognize it in technical or line-drawings of patterns; and try as I might, cannot always see beyond the fabrics and styling of the burdastyle photographs of the patterns. While I understand the point of the more frequent “Styling The _____” posts, I find these type of posts to be MUCH more informative and inspiring. I loved the one you guys did on the LBD and Red Carpet Trends; both the looks you picked (Rooney Mara’ s photo still comes to mind) and the patterns paired with them were fantastic, and the post bridged the gap and allowed me to see that I COULD create these looks: uber-useful on so many levels! Perhaps I’m not as creative or visionary or skilled as the average burdastyle member…
