TREND: FOLKLORIC

The rich, textured designs "are the fall version of the summer boho trend," says Kaufman. The European-inspired look has many moods: a multipatterned frock on Kate Hudson; "velvet mixed with embroidery," as seen on Paris Hilton; and vibrant colors on Sanaa Lathan's Diane von Furstenberg dress. "It's luxe folkloric – not a peasant-girl look."
