Published 9/29/2010

The fall fashion forecast sees jeans as tight as ever, but heels are taller, necklines higher, and hairstyles continue to get cut with especially more interesting angles that actually work.  Thanks, Europe. Patterns are more prevalent, color schemes more subdued, and accessorizing successfully these days requires a sense of ageless restraint. Styled by the daring Detroit femme du fashion Birta Hlif Epstein — fresh from a trip to the Big Apple for the talked-about Fashion's Night Out event — the Metro Times 2010 Fall Fashion spread shows us this and more. 

This Autumn's attire should clash and mash generations, but the final look ought to feel as cohesive as it does creative. Women want comfortable couture that turn heads and breaks rules, and that's exactly what we gave them.
