Winter 2010 is a season of exceptional outerwear: luxurious materials, vintage-inspired silhouettes, and innovative accents abound. Let’s take a look at the season’s top trends:
Shearling & Fur
Fur and shearling styles run the gamut from tough-girl bombers by Rag & Bone and state & lake to a rabbit fur trench by Preen clothing. Ambre Babzoe and Diane von Furstenberg lead the pack for ladylike real fur options, but if you prefer your fur faux, Wink clothing and Alice + Olivia offer styles with a decidedly haute air.
Fashion’s recent mania for all things classic and feminine finds its perfect expression in the camel trench coat. Look to Smythe, Alexander Wang, and Club Monaco for standout examples.
The down of today bears no relation to your childhood snowsuits. Innovative winter-wear designers Add Down, Duvetica, and Mackage have transformed the down jacket into a sleek and chic statement.
