Now that the triple-digit temperatures are behind us (fingers crossed), we can turn our attention to dressing for cooler weather. For the final installment of our series Fall Fashion 2018, we have chosen to review the stellar Best of Saks runway show at last week’s Key To The Cure event.

Leave it to our fashion gurus at Saks Fifth Avenue, Biltmore Fashion Park to have assembled the best-of-the-best garments, footwear and handbags. With additional guidance from Margaret Merritt, we see the value of mixing labels to achieve one’s own unique style.

The newest trends include suiting, plaid, shiny silver and gold, knitwear, animal prints, statement outerwear and high gloss elements. The photos will give you a clear picture of how multiple trends can meld together to create a seamless look.
