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,
