Trend: Winter Warmers

Once the sun has set and the floral bikini's have been thrown back into the depths of our wardrobes, there remains that silver lining to aid that holiday nostalgia; the promise of fall fashion, to warm our toes and light our fires!

Prancing down the catwalk for Autumn/Winter 2010 happens to be the return of the notorious aviator jacket. With 1986's Top Gun classic constantly influencing the runway, this year it is time to step away from our beloved pea-coats and fly with the essential coat of Fall 2010. Burberry Prorsum, Unique and House of Holland are amongst the many labels backing the comeback.

However, this ravishing return is not the only style to be seen fluttering down the runways recently; a refreshing and intriguing winter warmer has been brought to attention, the cape coat. From short to ankle-sweeping, fitted to flowing, this succulent piece is igniting the catwalk. The cape is simply fun and quirky.

It's not surprising that designers such as Stefano Pilati at Yves Saint Laurent and DKNY are supporting this tantalizing form of coat; embodying that subtle touch of romanticism, whilst conveying comparisons with the likes of Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood, this handsome coat is this fall/winter season's biggest story.

A further heroic trend for those Autumn months slowly creeping in, is of course a camel coloured wardrobe. From harems to woven scarfs, that delectable honey shade will be seen everywhere, therefore as the coat holds absolute importance for the frosty season, it inevitably must come in camel! Labels such as Gucci, MaxMara and Chloe are representing this sophisticated style of coat.

Amongst these delicious ranges, another reoccurring trend is back this Autumn; it is of course, the return of the 1990's parka - but forgetting the stereotype of the sulky indie-band singer Liam Gallager, this season sparks variety in the parka; from army-surplus jackets to shearling-lined beauties, it is that one piece that every women yearns for in fashion; practical yet stylish. So no wonder designers from Burberry Prorsum, Margaret Howell and Vanessa Bruno have all created their version of the trend.

Therefore, with all this excitable miscellany of coats, the battle of autumn/winter outerwear has commenced; whilst saying a respectable goodbye to the floral maxi-dress we can now shout hello to the wonderful indulgences in fall fashion. So forget sun and sand, lets mask our nostalgia and welcome cape and camel to the wardrobe of 2010.
