Gloves at Marc Jacobs, Cynthia Steffe, and Cynthia Rowley.


Style tip?  What cold weather accessory do you need to add instant chic to your outfit?  The glove.  Fall 2010’s runways saw a versatile variety of gloves, both short and long.  How to integrate gloves into your cold weather wardrobe?  Try long, above-the-elbow length gloves with a floor length gown for glamour.  Knit fingerless gloves for a bit of sporty action.  Or even puffer gloves, juxtaposed against something feminine, to protect you from the cold winter.

Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Cutouts

Cutouts at Cushnie et Ochs, Herve Leger, and Diane von Furstenberg.


Style tip?  Leather was huge on the runways of Fall 2010 in all kinds of incarnations.  Along with the usual leather jackets and motorcycle-inspired gear, we saw the rise of the leather dress.  To tone down the hardness of the leather dress, designers decided to soften the look with cutouts.  How to get the look of cutouts?  The traditional cutout (as seen at Herve Leger) removes strategic sections of the garment in slivers.  But we also loved seeing cutouts as a texture.  The cutouts on the Cushnie et Ochs tunic and the Diane von Furstenberg dress made us see this garment detail in a whole new light.

Fall 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Strong Shoulder 2.0

Strong Shoulder at Yigal Azrouel, Marc Jacobs, and Derek Lam.


Style tip?  Fall 2009’s emphasis on the shoulder continues into Fall 2010.  But it’s not the same old shoulder for 2010.  What first arose as a throwback to the 1980s, the strong shoulder has evolved past the plain jane shoulderpads into something more sophisticated - and decidedly more feminine.  Try a poufy shawl, as at Marc Jacobs, to provide a womanly emphasis on the shoulderline.  Or do as Derek Lam does, and draw emphasis to the shoulder with tailored colorblocking.  Not your cup of tea?  Then emphasize your shoulderline with interesting detailing - such as the oversized piping at Yigal Azrouel. How do you wear the strong shoulder?  Boldly and proudly.  There’s just no other way.
