#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.
