1. Bring back Bessette-Kennedy camel!
This classic color is amazing for both blonds and brunettes and it’s been missing in the market for so long. Invest in a coat or Blazer with a modern shoulder detail (see photo attached).

2. Lace details.
Whether it’s a full lace piece or a subtle lace detail (we love Valentino’s oversized black wool sweater with nude lace detail), incorporate it!

3. Return of the long tube.
Maxi skirts and sweater dresses! We are beyond excited to wear full-length skirts and dresses casually with biker boots cardigans and scarves or the knit dickies we obsessed over last Fall. Haider Ackerman’s jersey wool skirt with slits up to there is insane and works with the lace Henley for a formal occasion.

4. Wicked biker/combat boot if you don’t own one already.
Demeulemeester is the brass ring in this department. (Shown above Alexander Wang Lamb Freja Laced Boot)

5. Fur – faux or real.
This is luxurious and textural in the cold weather. Christie is a faux girl so she will sport Smythe’s box jacket (see attached photo). Andrea will wear both her box and her new Izma grey raccoon pullover with hood that her husband bought her for her birthday but doesn’t know about yet.

Find Smythe at Bloomingdales and Saks and better quality boutiques. Make sure to visit their website for specific locations.
