When it comes to keeping up with trends, one of the easiest and most effective ways to amp up your wardrobe is by investing in a trendy print or color. Below, we’ve rounded up four of our favorite prints and color trends for fall 2013. Scroll down to check them out:

1. Moss Green

Although emerald is still on-trend for fall, there’s a new shade of green quickly rising through the ranks: moss green. It’s a mix between an earthy olive and cool gray, which makes for a unique autumnal hue.

This color works like a neutral, which means it can be paired with lots of different shades. Try it with black for an edgy look or pair moss green with jewel tones for a fashion-forward vibe. Either way, you’re bound to look super-chic!

2. Plaid

Plaid will forever be a fall favorite, but expect this print to be even more popular this season. Both grunge and menswear-inspired looks were big on the F/W ’13 runways, and, as shown above, showcased just how versatile plaid can be.

Whether your prefer preppy or edgy looks, this is the kind of print that can work for just about any style aesthetic, so be sure to pick up a new plaid piece or two for fall.

3. Unconventional Leopard Print

As someone who likes to wear leopard year-round, I’m happy to report that leopard print will be über popular for fall. But not just any kind of leopard – this season is all about the unconventional prints. Think oversized spots and bright colors – the wilder, the better in this case!

If you’re wary about rocking this bold print, go small with accessories, but if you’re a leopard lover, feel free to go all out. Below are some of our fave unconventional leopard print pieces for autumn:

4. Winter White

There’s something oh-so-stylish about wearing white during the colder months of the year and – lucky for us – designers thought the same thing this season. Winter white is a major fall trend and we love how easy it is to wear.

If you’re up for it, rock a head-to-toe white outfit or go low-key chic with an accessory or jacket. And, don’t forget, combining black and white is still “in” for fall!

    I bought a leopard print dress last year from forever 21 that is tan on top and red on the bottom…I was too wary of wearing last year but now that I know leopard print is in, I feel like the dress is ready to shine!
