Top Must-Haves for Fall/Winter 2010-2011

Fall/winter 2010-2011 means aviator jackets, capes, military coats, cosy knitted items, furry boots, leather, and shearling. Even though they are characterized more by their practicality, this season's collections are very special and unique. Let's take a look at the top must-haves for fall/winter 2010-2011.

Animal prints, shearling, military, or leather are just a few of the must-haves for fall/winter 2010-2011. There is no doubt that this season you cannot create your wardrobe without adding a camel clothing piece or a cape. Here are some of the top must-haves for fall/winter 2010-2011.

Aviator jackets
Shearling is the star fabric for fall/winter 2010-2011. You can see it on the catwalks used for the aviator jackets. Inspired by the aviators of the Second World War, the aviator jacket is an essential element to keep in mind this season. You can wear it with anything and everything, such as in the Burberry Prorsum show with very feminine dresses and thigh high boots.

A cape is a total must-have for fall/winter 2010-2011. Even if it looks rather strange and maybe a little bit uncomfortable, the cape is one clothing article that you should have in your fall/winter wardrobe. Made from wool, fur, or tweed, the cape will give you a special, unique look. They are different cape styles such as the utility, casual cape, or the work cape, appropriate for an office look. Draw your inspiration from the runway showa as seen at Chloé, Céline, Alexander Wang, Yves Saint Laurent, or Giambattista Valli.

Camel is the It-color of the season, being considered as the new black. Besides gray, camel is the color characterizing itself through simplicity and moderation. Moreover, gray and camel represent an interesting chromatic pair for fall/winter 2010/2011. You can mix camel with copper, golden brown, mahogany, and denim. You could see it at Chloé, Stella McCartney, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, Phillip Lim.

Military is back this season. Heavy military boots and military jackets are some of the key elements of this season's army style. Military means coats with strongly emphasized shoulders and appropriate buttons, caps, overalls, and cargo pants. The perfect color describing this style for fall/winter 2010-2011 is khaki.

Knitted items
Knitted clothing pieces are the perfect solution if you want to protect yourself against the cold outside. They are so cosy and comfortable, yet they offer a special, chic look. We have seen knits at D&G, Isabel Marant, Chanel, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and Chloé. You can team knits with more feminine dresses, delicate tights, and stilettos.

Long skirt
When it comes to skirts the longer version is the key this season. From midi to floor-length, fall/winter 2010-2011 means '50s style skirt for sophisticated, yet casual outfits, and floor sweeping skirts for bohemian women. We have seen them at Salvatore Ferragamo, Ralph Lauren, Dries Van Noten, and Tommy Hilfiger.

The Yeti look is so trendy for fall/winter 2010-2011. Therefore a pair of furry boots is the perfect choice. They are so cosy and comfortable for cold winter days. For fall/winter 2010-2011, thigh-high boots seem to be one of the hottest trends when it comes to shoes, offering a feminine and sexy feeling. They could be seen on the catwalks at Burberry Prorsum, Christian Dior, or Vivienne Westwood.

Pointed-toe shoes
Pointed-toe shoes are back in a big way for fall/winter 2010-2011. Pointy kitten heels were spotted at Stella McCartney and Isabel Marant, while at Louis Vuitton you could see pointed-toe shoes in a retro version matched with block heels and flat bows.
