I’ve mentioned more than once over the past month just how boring and uninspirational this autumn/winter season has been. I’m not the only one who noticed, either. Even the Washington Post has its opinion as to why this was one of the most disappointing runway seasons we’ve seen in a very long time. We can only hope there are enough revisions between now and September to give the clothes some necessary oomph by the time they hit store shelves this fall.

If anything, when we have a season as mind-numbing as this one it makes the really amazing pieces stand out all that much more. I’ve chosen 20 of my favorite pieces to list for you here, and probably could have chosen 20 more, though they likely would have been from the same collections. [/one_half]
[one_half_last padding=”0 2px 0 4px”]Naturally, my choices are subjective and someone else’s list is going to be different. What I considered were how suited the clothes were for the season, how well suited they are specifically for the Midwest, the degree to which they flatter women in general, and the uniqueness of the fabrics. My final consideration, especially in cases of tie-breakers, is how Kat would look wearing it.[/one_half_last]
As always, all our reviews are available at Pattern. If anything, the disappointment of this season should fuel a lot of excitement for spring/summer 2016. At least, we can hope.
