NYFW Day 7: Favorite Looks

nyfw day 7

Elizabeth and James: Elizabeth and James does casual chic so well. This look is just perfect from the turtle neck to the cozy and comfy oversized sweater. Makes me want to curl up by the fire with a good book and some hot cocoa.

Nanette Lepore: To me this look is a perfect work outfit. The light color combined with the fun print of the top paired with the structured demure silhouette makes it both fashionable and professional!!

Boss: I love this dress because even though its such a simple silhouette, its a piece that makes you look twice. The beading, the structure, the fabric is all beautiful and quite sexy as well. The perfect dress for a night out with your love.

Bibhu Mohapatra: This dress is flawless. The color is like warm caramel, and I love the structure of the dress, from the peek-a-boo shoulders, to the structured bust, and the way the dress falls makes it elegant but sexy at the same time. Absolutely breathtaking!!

Marchesa: I always say that I should have been born in the ’20s so when I saw this collection, I was in LOVE. It was so hard for me to pick my favorite look, but this is definitely a fave because of the combination of the glittery and flirty top with gorgeously tailored wide-leg pants. Love!!

Michael Kors: I am in love with this look because it’s so fresh but it has great throwback elements from ’20s fringe to the prim Peter Pan collar. Love it!

NYFW Day 6: Favorite Looks

Oscar De La Renta: This is Peter Copping’s first true collect for Oscar and he served Mr. De La Renta’s memory well. The collection had so many beautiful red-carpet worthy gowns but this little number stood out to me because even though it simple, the subtle lace cap sleeves elevate the dress and makes it a piece to remember.

Tory Burch: I really enjoyed Tory Burch’s collection because I think she is mastering the art of evolution while maintaining the essence of your brand. Tory Burch has always been about preppy, lady-like elegance. This collection maintains that but adds in a bit of fun and flair with its boho, ’70s feel. This dress in particular stood out to me because of its silhouette coupled with the gorgeous embellishments. Love it!

Badgley Mischka: Another collection where there is no doubt that we will see some of these pieces on the Oscars red carpet come Sunday. This dress in particular is my favorite mostly because it takes an element that can usually be harsh, metallic, and makes it soft, feminine and gorgeous.

Pedro Del Hierro: This is what I want to look like on a cold, rainy day when I’m walking into work. From the gorgeous, structure of the coat to the classic button-down shirt and the beautifully tailored pants, everything about this outfit is on point.

Naeem Khan: I love lace. Always have, always will. And this look takes lace, which can usually be very girlish and dainty and toughens it up a bit and makes it edgy and sassy, proving that if done right lace can be right for any occasion.

J. Crew: I want this sweater right now, because it looks so incredibly comfortable and cozy. I, also, love this look because it pairs something that its normally super casual, an oversized knit sweater, with pieces that are little bit more dressed up: a short shirt dress, a sparkly clutch and fun heels. Definite outfit inspiration come fall!!

NYFW Day 5: Favorite Looks

Zac Posen: When I saw this dress, I think I might have audibly gasped. The color is gorgeous, the halter neckline is beautifully done, and the structure of the dress is perfect!!

Tommy Hilfiger: This collection is so spot on with its athletic inspired theme. I particularly loved this dress because it combines athletic elements with chic elements beautifully!

Reem Acra: I love embroidery but it has to be done right so that it looks chic and fresh. Reem Acra hit the nail on the head with this gorgeous red number.

3.1 Phillip Lim: This dress is great because I love how it combines the sportswear element of a shirt dress with the elegance of a gown and a silky fabric. Gorgeous!

The Row: There’s nothing I love more than a cozy sweater with comfy pants. What makes that combo better is when it looks trendy and fashionable!!

Milly: I love this look because it’s a fresh take on current trendy elements. This is definitely a look I would love to rock on a fun night out.

NYFW Day 3: Favorite Looks

Lyn Devon: I love this look because of the great color of the coat. Sometimes a girl needs a little pop of pumpkin in her fall wardrobe.

Lacoste: I chose this dress as a favorite look because of the ease of the dress combined with the classic Lacoste prints and a Peter Pan collar. Beautiful dress!

Hervé Léger: Hervé Léger has been doing a good job of creating collections that maintain the essence of its brand, sexy dresses, but are also fresh and new. I love the print on this dress and combined with the of-the-moment bomber jacket, it’s a beautiful look!!

Christian Siriano: There is nothing I love more than a feminine, ladylike look. Combining that silhouette with the jewel-tone colors and rich fabrics, this look is gorgeous.

Mara Hoffman: This collection is also taking inspiration from the ’70s boho look and she did it perfectly. The flow of this dress combined with the knee-high, suede boots is so chic and beautiful!

Adam Lippes: This coat is pure perfection because of how elegant and classic it is. This is what I call an investment piece because it is timeless and will forever make you chic!

Ahhh September. A new season, with the promise of leaves changing color, winds becoming crisper, and the prelude to the holiday season. But, the best part about September? Fashion Week!! Or, rather Fashion Month, New York, London, Milan, and Paris each getting a week for the designers in their respective towns to showcase the collections they have been working on for months.
