    It's back to basics in this spring '12 lookbook from Won Hundred, and, with oversized blazers, leggings under dresses, and too-cool sunnies (to wear at night, obvi), it's back to the '80s too — but in the chicest possible way.

    Designed to emphasize the wearers' strength and simplicity, Won Hundred's new collection focuses on raw form instead of extraneous detailing. Trench silhouettes, thin and floaty transparent materials, and gracefully wrapped lines meant to recall the movement of contemporary dancers, make up a line of silhouettes we'd happily prance around in. We're into the off-the-shoulder styling and the punches of vibrant blue mixed in with the luxe grays for seasonal wardrobe richness we'd rock from office to evening. A killer red coat adds a pop of color and delicate tanks (on a model who's slept-in side bun is a look we've been trying to achieve since...forever) lend a delicate touch. Flip through the looks and tell us what you think of the line — totally tubular or a bit too understated?
