I spent a day this week shopping downtown Chicago–department and specialty stores, designer thru moderate. Here’s what I saw over and over again:
Color was either classic, autumnal (lots of orange), neutral (lots of brown family), or hideous unwearable brights.
Color blocking and fabric mix was one of the main ingredients
Leather everywhere in solid items, and one of the main fabrics used in mixes, trimming
Lace everywhere and in all kinds–lace trims
Animal spots, especially in printed fine gg cardigans
Pullover Crew Neck Sweaters
