Along with the fabulous Fall '12 outerwear we've been seeing, there's another emerging trend that's high up on our "coveted style" list. Luckily, this one doesn't require us to wait to emulate its ultra-cool proportions. We're talking about the leather opera-length glove-and-dress look, of course. As seen at Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Rachel Zoe, Carolina Herrera, Rag & Bone, and Yigal Azrouël, this ladylike pairing strikes up a nuanced and nostalgic feel with all the right attention to stylish detail. Simply put, designers have injected their Fall '12 collections with a totally refreshed spin on a retro classic look. It's a quick Spring styling coup — just accent flirtier floral print dresses with long Winter gloves, or take notes straight from the runway on how to pull of this easy, elegant dressing matchup in darker color combos.
