As the fashion world prepares for the month-long style spectacle that kicks off with New York Fashion Week in February, it’s easy to forget that pre-fall 2013 collections have been pouring in during the last couple of months. Viewed as the more commercial (read: sellable) collections than the traditional spring and fall seasons, designers often diffuse their pre-fall lines with more directional looks for shoppers.

This season, the pre-fall collections have been exceptional—from the textured details at Calvin Klein to Hitchcock heroine-inspired looks at Michael Kors, there’s plenty we’re eager to scoop up for our own closets.

There’s just one minor snag: The designer price tags. Instead of waiting for these items to hit the sale portion of our favrorite stores and e-tailers, we rounded up items to recreate 10 standout pre-fall looks with items to shop now. Check them out!
