Fall 2010 Fashion Trend: Cocooning

Style tip?  Sometimes all you want to do is to cocoon up when it’s cold out.  When that happens, you have a variety of options for keeping cozy.  Try a cape (belted, if you want to show off your figure) over something form fitting on the bottom.  Or drape yourself in a big, cozy coat, as seen at Preen.  Or just wrap yourself in a snuggly shrug, as at Cynthia Steffe.  PS - for all of us petite women, this is probably the easiest to pull off.

What do you think?  How would you cocoon?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Calf Grazing Skirts

Style tip?  Calf grazing skirts aren’t naturally the most flattering cut, as most womens’ optimal skirt length is at or around the knee.  But what these calf grazing skirts lack in figure flattery, they compensate in retro, Hitchcock heroine appeal.  The key to wearing these calf grazing skirts without looking matronly is to keep the silhouette of the skirt slim, like an exaggerated pencil skirt.  Finish the look off up top with a wildly patterned blouse, as at Costello Tagliapietra, or a perfectly tailored bodice, as at Marc Jacobs.  What kind of shoes to wear with calf grazing skirts?  Heels, of course, to create the longest, leanest leg line possible.

What do you think?  How would you wear calf grazing skirts?  Share your thoughts in the comments!
