This season's styles aren't for sissies. The looks are strong, sophisticated, and structured, with lots of rich tailoring and a balanced mix of the right accessories. Jewelry is all about mixing up the faux with the fine, and statement pieces are still dominant, with big earrings making a serious comeback. Ladylike pumps are also modern when paired with all these big-girl elements, and handbags are large and shapely. Playing dress-up is serious fun.
Outerwear is in extravagant materials and jewelry is shown in different ways. On Richera: Silk peacock jacket by Carrie Roberson from Coming Attractions, $340.
