We've all experienced the fussy New York weather. You know, those days when it's too cold to sport a skirt but the thought of wearing a coat give us hot flashes. Thankfully, designers like Jeffrey Monteiro understand both the art of layering and the New York climate, both of which can be pretty difficult to master (trust us, we're still working on it!). We got the first peek at his his fall '10 lookbook, where the Aussie turned New Yorker pairs ribbed tights with perfectly tailored blazers and short-sleeved silk tops for a look that's sweetly sophisticated yet fully functional—feminine and soft with just the right amount of tough. He's even included some cozy leg (and arm) warmers for those days you want to show off your fuzzy white vest without looking like a bulky abominable snowman.
