Not everyone can be a celebrity, but it's easy to dress like one. The major trends seen at last night's 63rd primetime Emmy Awards are simple to incorporate into your fall wardrobe on any budget.

Vibrant red, as seen on Nina Dobrev and Lea Michele, is a fun way to spice up a neutral wardrobe with a dress like this one or just in the accessories, like a bright purse or necklace. Even a fabulous red lipstick can update an outfit. Red is an eye-catching color, so be prepared to get attention!

If bright colors aren't your thing, feminine touches like Jayma Mays' ruffled gown are worth a look. To make sure the look isn't too cutesy, tone down the ruffles for everyday wear but make sure not to lose the sweet look. Dresses like this or this are perfect for daytime wear and would look great with classic, ladylike flats or heels.

Another major trend, seen on Sofia Vergara and Christina Hendricks, is a body-hugging silhouette. This trend may seem daunting at first, but it's not about baring skin, it's about flattering your shape. Whether that means a body conscious maxi skirt or a daring dress, this trend is a fun way to change up your fall wardrobe.

The trends seen on the red carpet are fun and easy to use as inspiration for fall dressing, whether it's with a fabulous pair of shoes or a girly dress, and are accessible no matter your style or budget. For a complete analysis of 2011 Emmy red carpet trends, click here.
