There is an almost overwhelming amount of stripes in all different sizes, yet they are mainly vertical. This sorta bums me out as stripes do not look good on a short curvaceous figure, but I still think stripes are fabulous especially in the way Michael Kors and Zac Posen did them. I also found that there was many pleats in all directions, particularly knife pleats that were sewn to perfection! Along with pleats, many items were gathered in a very body conscious way that accentuates ones figure. Then I found fur... which yes i just wrote about as it is in style now for fall/winter 2010. This allows me to believe that some fur items are a good investment. Though the fur that was found in these collections were a little more refined than this season.
For shoes, if you are looking to invest in a good in style pair of shoes, go for the strappy not the shooties (strappy booties). As for make-up, many collections had models with very thick dark eyeshadow done in a very modern, sexy way. I can dig it. Like I said that is just a summary to the best of my ability. If you would like to look for yourself go to....www.style.com. There are just to many pictures that I would want to post.
