In the Mood for...Far East Movement

Asian influences have been a major trend in fashion for the past couple of seasons, and it is getting a major moment this fall.

Eastern silhouettes are also taking the stage, with kimonos, high-necked dresses, and wide obi belts seen over and over on the runways. Check out these looks from Just Cavalli, seen here...


And here are some affordable versions of this trend...
