Printed Parka and Boyfriend Jeans, Outside Etro

A cool parka goes a long way in winter. This one outside the Etro show in Milan was printed with fox tails – still glamorous but friendlier than the real thing. Boyfriend jeans and heels add to the mix.

Model Off Duty, After Moschino

In Milan, the fashion set saw inclement weather as an opportunity to break out their best winter duds. This is really a case of “when in Rome” – Italian ladies have been known to don their best fur coats just for a trip to the grocery store. After the Moschino show, a model left in a brilliant red fur coat and leather leggings.

Shiona Turini at Nina Ricci

Cosmopolitan’s fashion market editor and native Bermudian Shiona Turini is perhaps the most fashionable woman to emerge from Bermuda, well, ever. If you have ever whiled away a rainy summer afternoon rummaging through shops on Front Street in search of something that is not pink and green or patterned like your grandma’s tea cozy, you have felt my pain. And yet, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Shiona turns up at fashion weeks around the world fabulously attired. She was already sporting the trendy Fendi keychain in September, clipped to a fabulous Louis Vuitton clutch.

Tina Leung at Carven

Gender-bending fashion is in the news, with Jared Leto’s man bun and Diane Keaton’s tuxedo turning heads at the Golden Globes. For women, donning menswear isn’t just for black tie or Pitti Uomo: it looks sharp on a variety of occasions, as on stylist Tina Leung at the Carven show in Paris. The suit is Ralph Lauren, the stilettos Valentino.

Zlata Mangafic, After Chanel

New model Zlata Mangafic was one of the most widely booked models during the past fashion week season and always a pleasure to encounter outside the shows. Her look reminds me of Chanel muse and model Stella Tennant, and like Ms. Tennant, she has laid-back but elegant personal style. After walking the Chanel show, Zlata left the Grand Palais in a green Edun leather jacket, Derek Lam tweed sequin skirt and Celine bag.

Graphic Print Top, Outside Prabal Gurung

One easy way to break out of the all-black rut in winter is to add just one graphic print to the mix, like this guest at the Prabal Gurung show.

Natalie Joos at Prabal Gurung FW2013

Mark my words: Oversize coats like this one trendsetter Natalie Joos wore last year will be all over the streets during New York fashion week this year. She balances the menswear cut with a feminine bright pink turtleneck sweater, green damask pants and green velvet platforms.

Ndoema at Timo Weiland

Ndoema of the Global Girl blog wore a fabulous metallic embroidered coat – vintage, I think – to the Timo Weiland show. Glittery pants are the finishing touch.

Printed Pants, Outside Timo Weiland

Vivid prints like this one are a great way to liven up a winter outfit. And that is actually not a fur jacket but a fur vest worn over a leather jacket, an excellent layering technique.

Fur Trim Coat and Plaid Shirt at Timo Weiland

I love the mix of layers, colors and textures on this guest at the Timo Weiland show. The cherry red lipstick is the perfect finishing touch.
