All Fur no Frum

Finally, I've decided to post something about the runway.
Some winter-friendly looks I love:

It seems like Yellow is going to be a key colour for Fall. Which is good. I lurve the Tory Burch look - very suitable for downtown streetwear. A parka over a sunshineyellow satin baby doll, cigarette jeans and leather boots - that's all the cool streetwear rolled into one! And the Nina Ricci outfit can be a little OTT but I think it's pretty cute - gladiator gold with a yellow mansuit - also very trendy. But don't go down this road (Maison Martin Margiela)!

Are Leggings over? Personally, I still like how leggings look. If you have great legs, who cares? Wear them! Moreover, the cold winter is the perfect excuse to wear extra coverage for those pins, so don't throw them out yet. It's all about balancing the silhouette - skinny legs are best enhanced with a more structured bulky top as seen in Paco Rabane's beautiful jacket + legging combo. And more about yellow, a dark-coloured pair of leggings (and yes, flats) can be worn with a nice bright summery dress like Missoni's to give it a different twist.

Scarves! Knitted ones, fur ones, cashmere, cableknit - this is the season for the scarf. Especially if the weather is like in Singapore - summer all year round - scarves are the only winter-ish wear you can experiment with in comfort. Numerous ways to do it, for e.g, a more classic style from Behnaz Sarafpour or a more experimental style ala Kenzo.
