it really feels like autumn today! take tips from the fall 2011 collections and bundle up against the newly cool weather.
TIP #1: reverse your layering technique! try a cropped bright jacket over a longer dark top for a refreshing look. the unique collar here perfectly showcases the romantic tie of the silk shirt underneath.
TIP #2: celine's phoebe philo created an uptown layered look with a button-less leather blazer over a long fur gilet. the white cashmere turtleneck and subtly patterned burgundy pants add just the right mix of basics+interest to keep this ensemble from looking a little too mature.
TIP #3: derek lam showed tailored separates to create a refined layering silhouette in his collection. the just-clingy-enough rolled neck sweater with asymmetrical hem is the perfect grounding element for the boxy jacket, which ties in with the always stylish leather pants with its leather trim.
TIP #4: altuzzara shows that layers can be sexy with this bold sheer ensemble topped with one of his gorgeous fall parkas - with unexpected details like suede and dominating zippers.
TIP #5: at christian dior, many luxe layered looks were sent down the runway, but this one pairing a dramatic, long coat with iridescent shorts takes the cake. give the outfit more flair with distinct textile additions - exotic skin over-the-knee boots and fur collar and cuffs.
