think of them as in­gre­di­ents that can’t all be thrown into one dish. You may want to sit down and flick through a thou­sand im­ages un­til some­thing speaks to you, or take a more prag­matic ap­proach and an­a­lyse what works for your shape, life­style, and per­son­al­ity. Then again, you could let us do the heavy lift­ing, be­cause we were there, with a front row seat at the run­way shows. We wit­nessed the emo­tional crescen­dos (Marc Ja­cobs’s last show at Louis Vuit­ton and those beau­ti­ful jet-black beaded jack­ets and dresses), and saw the back­less shoes, high­waisted cu­lottes, ab-re­veal­ing cut­aways, thigh-ac­cen­tu­at­ing shorts, and the eas­i­est shirt­dresses. We re­viewed the mi­nis and the maxis, clocked the strong mas­cu­line in­flu­ences and the ul­tra­fem­i­nine flo­rals and but­ter­fly prints, and took note of the or­ganza ruf­fles, chif­fon con­certina pleats, pin­stripes, lace, and fringe, and in­creas­ingly in­no­va­tive cos­tume jew­ellery. Af­ter all that, we spent a lot of time think­ing about what will look mod­ern, prac­ti­cal, and glam­orous in 2014 to come up with our list of the 10 de­fin­i­tive pieces that fit that brief. There’s noth­ing ephe­meral eph about the items we’ve cho­sen, ch but each one will up­date up­dat what­ever you wear it with. w That’s style.
