Cameras flash.

Popular tunes blare through the speakers.

Models confidently walk down the runway, wearing clothes you admire but could never pull off.

Or can you?

This fall, the runway trends are easily transferrable to the halls of Blue Valley, ranging in everything from heavy knits to retro.

The Trend: Shearling

What it is?: The wool or fleece from a sheep accenting an article of clothing.

Key Pieces: Vest or jacket with shearling collar, boots with shearling lining

Shop The Look: ASOS.com, Guess, Piperlime.com

Pulling It Off: Choose one piece with a shearling element. Pair the piece with basics such as a T-shirt or a solid color button-down and jeans.

The Trend: Sixties Mod

What is it?: The trendy style of dress in the 1960s.

Key Pieces: Color-blocked shift dress, flats or boots, solid-color straight-leg pants
