I came across this mail order catalog from Bergdorf Goodman when cleaning my office the other day. While I could do without the big shoulders, I love all of these looks, which say "classic and elegant" to me. Let's look ahead to fall, shall we?

Right: Calvin Klein cashmere chesterfield coat with velvet collar worn over his black wool jersey turtleneck and pants. Black alligator belt by Barry Kieselstein-Cord.
Left: Louis Dell'Olio for Anne Knein handknit black wool sweater over a wool broadcloth skirt.

Tomorrow I'll share some more casual looks from the same catalog.
