Ruthie Friedlander, senior editor of Styleite.com let "Early Show" viewers in on some of the top fashion trends you'll see this fall.
Why is the September issue so important for magazines?
Friedlander said it's all about the season.
She explained, "There's more clothing than spring fashion, and it's all big-ticket items. Hats, boots, jackets and pants. Also, everyone's ready to turn over a new leaf. We're programmed from when we were little and school would start. It's like grown-up back-to-school shopping."
This year Friedlander said women are likely to see these trends in the September issue:
1. Safari/Military-inspired Styles: You'll be seeing a lot of army green and camel. A lot of utilitarian styles, big, tall boots that look more like they belong to your dad than to you. Also messenger bags, cross-body bags and trench coats.
2. All Things Animal: Animal prints, animal fur, leather and bird feathers are all hot trends we've seen on the runway this season.
3. "Mad Men" Look: Very late '50s, early '60s. Red lips, kitten heels, full skirts, handbags that you actually hold in your hand. Suits with a very tailored look. Also, look for tops with collars with ties on them.
