Cargo styling, like five-pocket jeans a motorcycle jacket, can be endlessly reinterpreted and still retain its timeless identity.  For next season, the military or utility-derived inspiration is there, but fabrics are softer and colors are gentler. Newness comes in gathers, channel elastic, drawstrings, subtly contrasting fabrics, rib-knit trims, cutouts and layered effects. Accessories lose any aggressive edge as well, with squashy constructions for handbags and footwear.

Saturated shades of yellow hit the runway for next fall. Shades range from goldenrod to ochre to greenish olive-oil tones and are used for everything from casual utility styles to soft dresses. The sunny colors look right in solids or as grounds for prints; the season’s cozy plaids get a nice uplift from yellow too. Designers work sulfurous shades in tonal ensembles or accent with black for maximum pop.
