Fashion week left all of us daydreaming about spring 2014 but let’s not get ahead of ourselves; we still have winter 2013 to worry about.
Earlier this year, the plain black turtleneck made it’s way into the spotlight and is, apparently, here to stay. Your plain black turtleneck is going to be a must have layering piece. It’s an easy and sophisticated look that’s also extremely versatile.
A new trend that’s making its way into our hearts, and hopefully your closets, is the midi dress. Midi dresses fall just below the knee. This style has been seen on numerous celebrities such as Halle Berry and almost every trendy retailer or brand offers their take on the midi. This fresh silhouette refines your style and gives an air of elegance.
You’ve heard the rule that you don’t wear white after Labor Day? Well, through that out of the window. White is going to be a hot color this fall and winter. If you’re not feeling bold enough to pull off an all white look, use white to accent dark ensemble.

A big hit right now that is even going to carry into spring is the play on proportions. Baggy sweaters with a sleek midi skirt or skinny jeans is a simple way to utilize this look. For a more exaggerated spin, find a coat that is over sized or with strong shoulders.
