Pre-Fall Colors

Besides being another way for fashion houses to make more money, (aren't 4 seasons enough?), Pre-Fall collections are a good predictor of what we're going to see in fall.
Being a style.com iPhone addict (if you haven't tried it - you should, that is THE way fashion show shots were meant to be seen), I was very happy to see my 2 favorite colors dominating the lookbooks. I won't lie, red and green are my favorite colors because I look good wearing them, but objectively speaking (or at least trying to), these 2 colors have a somewhat royal feel to them that makes looks both dramatic and classic - a winning combination for fall and winter in my opinion.
Following are some of the best red & green looks for this coming pre-fall, enjoy :)
