We saw new proportions on runways in every incarnation: Midis constructed in tweed with paper bag waists and unfinished hems at Fendi; channeling loose and flowing girlish innocence at Chloé; and as no-nonsense lean looks at Michael Kors. Maxis, too, were out in abundance, from Marc Jacobs' '70s-inspired flowing halter dresses to Jil Sander's minimalist to-the-floor dressing. With a little bit of style planning, like embracing the plain white tee and committing to wearing heels, you can pull off a polished new look this season.
