Trend Watch: Peplums
What can we say about peplums? This magical little piece of fabric, when added in just the right place, creates curves where there previously were none, giving even the most beanpole figures the illusion of an hourglass. No wonder this has become such a popular trend.

Trend Watch: Prep School
This fall, fashion is going back to school with a supply list that includes pleated skirts, perfectly cut blazers, collared shirts, and tasseled loafers. Mix and match librarian-chic textures and prints like houndstooth, plaid, and herringbone with silk shirts and patterned socks. Top it all off with an old-school style bag for a look that will take you back to the excitement of the first day of school…without all the homework.

Of all of the types of clothing, the coat has probably been with us the longest. Whenever the seasons turn and the temperatures drop, we must add on layers for warmth and protection. At some point, someone somewhere made the decision that outerwear need not merely keep people from getting frostbitten, but could also make a fashionable statement. Coats from the last one hundred years are particularly stylish and are often referenced by contemporary designers. This season’s oversized and printed designs were seen in the 1980s and even as early as 1900. Here are our favorite vintage coats to inspire your next shopping trip.
London Fashion Week has come to a close with the Brits showing their distinct eye for bold, fun fashion. With adjectives like transparent, candy wrapper, western, and metallic being thrown around, there were loads of new and old ideas strutting down the runways. After wading through the seemingly never-ending wave of visual stimuli (Milan Fashion Week does start today, afterall), we came to a consensus on our favorite London shows this week.

Iconic, classic, and utilitarian, the trench coat is one of those rare pieces that never goes out of style. As with many wardrobe staples, the trench coat got its start in the military, more specifically, the British military. Originally designed to be worn by officers in the trenches of the First World War, the coats endured so well that the soldiers took them home and wore them during civilian life as well. Designers like Burberry, who had designed the original for the military, took note and began to design fashion trench coats, cementing them in our fashion lexicons.
