#WMCFW: Canadian Street Fashion/Winter Coats

quilted_leather_jacket_trenchSnapping lots of pics at World Mastercard Fashion Week gives some serious insight into what’s in store for winter 2014…  So what’s on everyone’s winter shopping list?  Coats!  Contrasting, quilted leather sleeves, exposed zippers on sleeve cuffs and motorcycle inspired styling were all on the Mastercard Menu this week.  And lets not forget scarves – furry collars did double duty as stylish neck warmers and infinity scarves are still a Canadian winter must-have!
