Trench coats are back in full force in a a variety of fabrics, especially plaids. This doesn’t mean you have to tone down what goes underneath, however: Elizabeth von Guttman wore hers with bright red track pants.
A belted coat is an elegant way to fend off the cold. Model Auguste Abeliunaite paired a gray tie-waist coat with black leather pants, boots and a big Prada bag after the Prabal Gurung show in New York.
Michelle Harper wore this exquisite belted brocade coat to fend off wet weather at the DKNY show. The cat eye sunglasses and red lipstick are the icing on the cake.
Fashion consultant Yasmin Sewell stood out from the crowd in a powder blue coat with ruched silk at the sleeves, a skinny leather belt, candy orange lace skirt and gray suede wedges.
The wide-brimmed hat, dark lipstick, vintage bag and a flared wool trench are so Ingrid Bergman in “Casablanca.” Bringing a little 1940s mystery to modern-day fashion.
Whenever non-fashion industry friends ask me to name a big new trend, I tell them “wide-legged trousers.” Inevitably they shriek in horror. How can wide-legged trousers possibly look good on anyone but a model? This is how. They’re actually very flattering, since they elongate the legs. Hers make a particularly bold statement in houndstooth, but neutrals work just as well.
