“Color is going to be a huge trend for Fall ’12. It’s gloomy and cold out, but everyone will want to be in rich and deep jewel tones,” says Ronson. “I’m excited to wear these winter brights!”
“Floral prints in plums, reds and rich jewel tones are easy to coordinate with tights and boots, and give you a feminine and flirty silhouette throughout the fall season,” enthuses Ronson. “Wear them with a chunky sweater and leather jacket to create texture and keep you feeling warm and cozy.” This silk-chiffon floral-print dress ($365 at is one of Ronson’s designs.

“When the weather starts to get cold and gray, a red lip is essential to keep you feeling vibrant. It finishes any outfit with a pop,” says Ronson. Try the designer’s own high-shine gloss, A Perfect Kiss in Annabelle ($14 at Sephora, locations throughout the city; visit
