#1 Classic Camel Coats
This fresh-again classic made many well turned-out appearances. To avoid a staid look, it was mixed with varying hues of beige or kept über-bourgeois with black.
#2 Unexpected Fur
Leaving behind heavy fur coats, designers took this sumptuous staple in new directions. Swishy miniskirts, vests and capelets were entirely intriguing–with many well-done faux-fur options. Perfect for party-hoppers who no longer have to queue up in coat check.
#3 Soignée Sweats
What could be more unrefined and borderline sloppy than sweatpants? This slacker favourite went for a chic spin with a new streamlined fit and proper styling. Think heeled boots and tailored jackets.
#4 Cup of Tea
Forger saucy miniskirts that barely just cover. The exaggerated shape of sweet teacup styles suit a variety of figures. From ombré to slick patent, they make the right kind of entrance.
#5 Winter Whiteout
Angelic shades of pale in cashmere, wool, even feathers, make it easy to avoid falling into a fashion slump come fall. Snow-dusted textures and tones added icy allure.
#6 Film Noir
Like a starlet in hiding, designers couldn’t resist black’s siren call. Oversize collars, thick belts and scrunched gloves finished the look.
#7 Statement Knits
After the onslaught of sharp-shouldered jackets with spiky embellishment, the cozy sweater was due for a comeback. Shorter styles were paired with suede leggings, while floor-length numbers and sweeping scarves were glamorously laid back.
#8 Animalistic Spirit
An artful combination of feral and reptile patterns created a stunning statement. When whipped up in soft-structured shapes, abstracted animal prints avoided leopard’s vixenish laurels.
#9 Prep School Redeux
Collegiate types relish in prim prepster standbys given a witty twist. Outsize plaid faded into fuzzy mohair on coats and matching skirts. Buttoned up oxford shirts, school-uniform shorts and brogues kept things spic and span.
#10 Mixed Media
Leather, fur, wool and jersey mixed together for a futuristic, high-impact look. Cooked up in percise silhouettes, urban warriors found their new armor.
