Loved this cute look on Helena Bordon at the Rochas show in Paris. She mixed a leopard print coat with a rock tee, shredded jeans and ladylike heels and bag. Pale jeans that are gently shredded at the front are a good bet for spring 2014.

Elizabeth von Guttman at Theory FW2014

This was one of my favorite outfits all season on Elizabeth von Guttman of System Magazine. To usher in the spring, it’s always a good bet to start with a black and white palette and add pops of color. The fox sweater is by Maison Kitsune.
