Global PerspectiveTrends and certain styles may be specific to local areas, but good fashion is global. Whether it's a classic look with clean lines and subtle colors, or a colorful and unique piece, the most important thing when it comes to garments is fabrication and construction. So Rue La La and others gathered coveted designers and labels from across the globe so you can get your shopping on.

It's hard enough trying to keep up with the constantly changing trends in your part of the world. Ever wonder what's going on style-wise in other countries? My recent trip to Taipei, Taiwan gave me a glimpse of the local fashion scene there with anything ranging from sweetly feminine to edgy hipster. While UGGS seemed to still run rampant, other style points like over the knee boots, leggings and asymmetrical layers were similar to the aesthetics we're used to here in the U.S. Fuzzy fabrics and fun, colorful accessories were also popular and have yet to catch on here at home while animal prints and mismatched colors seem to be left to the more adventurous among us, regardless of where we're from!
