If there’s such a thing as “Guerrilla Glam,” Jill Stuart has found it. Her looks for day -- minis that combine draped wool and camouflage-print silk, massive military coats with studded leather utility belts, a tomato overcoat with Hummer-size hood -- will leave you cozy, contained, protected. Sweet moments pop up for evening, with swaddled-fabric minis in iridescent purple or electric blue; a silk number in a lip-smack print; or one with roses dappled over an abstract design.

This may be Stuart’s most wearable collection in years -- as long as you’re willing to wear those high-heeled, over-the-knee boots, which looked both warm -- and hot.
