The bitter chill of winter can be cruel and unforgiving, which makes covering up so important. With every long coat in a neutral color that went down the runway (lots of dusters, actually), there was an answering blanket coat with a great graphic print to match it. The trend falls in lockstep with the gaucho/cowboy/nomad styling we've seen more than once this past week. And while blanket coats can be known for their wide array of colors, grayscale looks are a subtle, (though still eyecatching) alternative that seems to be very popular. Who says outerwear has to be boring, and what better way to warm up than to wrap yourself in something that reminds you of a warm, cozy bed? No time to sleep during fashion week, though, it looks like we'll just have to live vicariously through the coats (see: Rag & Bone, Michael Kors, etc.,).
