Fashion Forecast: Are you a Lady or a Tramp?

This Winter, there is a distinct grunge front coming in from the west, as trusty favourites Alexander Wang and new players like U (Universal Clothing) continue to deliver their unique take on utilitarian sportswear: perfect for that laid-back, just got out of bed and threw this on, but still look super hot vibe.

At the same time, however, a more haughty, ladylike mist is also descending upon fashion's consciousness: think Mad Men, full skirts and a celebration of the female form all around, complete with immaculate grooming, naturally.

So which fashion category will you fall into? Can you straddle both camps at once or is that like asking if you really can be a whore in the bedroom and a lady in the parlour?
