Wear it now: Christian Siriano's must-haves for fall

We asked the designer to give us five looks to wear now to get a jump on fall trends.

Leather jacket:

Whether it be a blazer, a motorcycle jacket or a leather jacket in a color such as fuchsia, an elegant leather jacket is key, he advised. “I really like the jackets we did this season,” he said. “We did a lot of different styles in jackets. You can wear them over dresses. You can wear them all fall. They are my favorite pieces.”

Print on print:

“There are a lot of interesting prints out there. Mix a blouse in one print with pants in another.”

Stiletto pumps:

“No more platforms.”

Sequin cocktail dress:

“A little glamour is important. Add some sparkle.”

Faux animal accessories:

“Something that I love to play with are faux pony hair and faux crocodile skin,” he said. “You can use them for a backpack or wallet. It has that luxurious feeling without hurting the animals.”
