Your how-to guide for wear­ing the tricky F/W ’15 trends.

Ev­ery year, de­sign­ers’ Fall shows con­tinue to in­spire, ex­cite, and well – weird us out a lit­tle, too; and this sea­son was not shy to tread into un­fa­mil­iar ter­ri­to­ries. Here’s your guide to mas­ter­ing the dif­fi­cult run­way looks, the real way. Ev­ery win­ter run­way has tons of fur coats and stoles, but this year, fur ac­cents were iso­lated in an un­usual place – sleeves and cuffs. From the su­per-fluffy fore­arm-length cuffs at Cé­line to the full-arm fur sleeves at Joseph, luxe sleeve and cuff ac­cents dom­i­nated out­er­wear trends for 2015. Choose your jacket care­fully, how­ever – you don’t want to end up look­ing like Big Foot. Shop for a fur-sleeved jacket in lux­u­ri­ous and heavy wool with tai­lored de­tails like a belt that shows off your waist. The ul­tra-mini is back, ap­par­ently – Marc Ja­cobs, Roland Mouret and Miu Miu all showed miles of leg in their shows. One of the most unique it­er­a­tions of the miniskirt this sea­son was de­signed by Mon­cler Gamme Rouge, a flared trans­par­ent mini worn over leg­gings and paired with a camo jacket and an eques­trian-style hel­met. Talk about dar­ing! To wear the trend with­out look­ing like you have fash­ion schizophre­nia, try this look with a ba­sic tube skirt un­der­neath in any color – it pro­vides all the same vis­ual im­pact but is about a hun­dred times more wear­able.
