After viewing Michael Kors's 2009 Pre-Fall collection, here's what we need to do to be in the know: wrap a thick, black headband around head; wear a long-sleeve turtleneck underneath a crop-sleeve coat, combine loud patterns, seek unique necklaces, don't be afraid of boxy cuts, overdo leopard. Phew! It's a lot to take in, but it all comes together beautifully, as exemplified by models Kasia Struss, Lindsay Ellingson, and Chanel Iman. If your goal is to look polished, mature, but with off-kilter undertones, this Kors collection will be of inspiration to you. I know I'll be taking away a few things myself.
