Capes and Capelets: One of the huge trends this season. Maybe this is The Poncho, Part II.
Derek Lam, Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhuillier, Narciso Rodriguez, Tuleh, Rachel Comey, Twinkle, Proenza Schouler
Small and Square Sunglasses: It’s like the fashion world woke up and decided it didn’t want to be bug eyed anymore.
Carolina Herrera, BCBG, Luella Bartley, Proenza Schouler
Nerd Glasses for Men: Can we say Geek Chic? Disclaimer: Sporting these glasses as an awkward teenager probably won’t win you any more dates.
Short Gloves: You go guys, for bucking the trend against the long, elbow-length glove.
Derek Lam, Proenza Schouler
3/4 Sleeve Styles: Trisha bought one of these 3/4 sleeve coats, but on her it was more like 7/8. Alas.
Proenza Schouler, Carolina Herrera
