Forget going back decades for inspiration, this season we are going back centuries. Things are feeling positively 19th century on the runways. High collars, ruffles, and lace all made an appearance as a nod to the era but bright colors, leather details, and sexy silhouettes subverted the traditionally buttoned-up look with some modern flair. - ELLE.com
We first noticed the appearance of male models on they runways of NYC at Harbison and Proenza Schouler. It's not exactly a trend you can wear yourself, but it is cool: Designers are giving new meaning to the concept of androgyny by giving men a place in the women's runway shows. While the world was shocked to see the return of Zoolander and Hansel at Valentino, we think their epic walk-off was not the first or the last we will see of this burgeoning trend. - ELLE.com
Get ready ladies: You will never have to be cold again! These boots go up, really high up and they are everywhere. The look of liquid legs is the one you will want to get for fall. In New York, Edun showed boots so high they looked like leather pants. By the time we got to London, Burberry had put a hippie-chic spin on the idea. In Paris, Vionnet used last season's slit trend to show off a little leg and a lot of boot.
The only thing better than a long sleeved gown is one that only has one sleeve—or so say Missoni and Simone Rocha, and that's good enough for me. It seems like a hard trend to ascribe to but when you think about it, the one sleeve is genius. It's the perfect way to show off a fabulous bag without any distractions from a pesky sleeve. - ELLE.com
Hiding your hands is the chicest thing that you can do. It might prevent you from eating comfortably or cleanly, but fashion and function are frenemies sometimes, you know? Having a sleeve that falls past the hands exaggerates the line of the arm, making them appear longer in the most striking way. - ELLE.com
