Runway to Real Way: Street Ready outfits!

I love when designers put together the most bizarre and impractical outfits together on the runway as they showcase a dramatic outfits in a very theatrically enticing manner. But what i love more is when designers, put together outfits that are wearable and easily adapted to everyday, while clearly establishing the trends of Fall 2007.

These are a few outfits that i think would really work for everyday and also some that showcase a few new trends.

1) The 3.1 Phillip Lim plaid coat is an stylish grown up way to keep on trend, whilst the whole outfit is put together in a stylishly comfortable way.

2) I love the edginess of this Proenza Schouler outfit. It looks sharp, but the slouchy pants make it very laid back.

3) The Costello Tagliapietra dress brings on an architectural look, but in reality much lighter.

4) A Burberry Trench coat...need i say more? Ok, maybe just a little about the long black patent gloves which will keep you warm for winter and also look elegant for many winters to come.

5) A leather jacket such as the 3.1 Phillip Lim Jacket is a wardrobe essential, especially considering the quality and the way in which it brings on a touch rock-chick look to any outfit. Not a fan of leather? Some designers such as Stella McCartney make ones in Vinyl and PVC to keep them stylish yet animal friendly :)

6 & 7) Michael Kors Fall 2007 collection showed us the way to wear a perfect work outfit. Either man style with wide leg trousers or sexy and lady like with a cinched in waist, skirt and 60's icon style sunglasses. Key to the look: Sleek hair and muted colours to avoid looking to manly or kiddish.

8) Love the random splash of color at Gucci which also showcased a lot of trends flowing into fall and winter. Patent gloves, ankle boots, skinny pants, grey and red hot lips!
