Here is the roundup of day 3 of New York Fashion Week, fall 2013. There were A LOT of shows, and in true fashionista style, the gloomy Nemo weather outside didn’t phase anyone. Bravo to everyone who braved the elements and sat through the shows!
Lacoste’s 80th anniversary show showcased, as Megan put it, pops of “very typical Lacoste” colors. Think sporty pieces with pops of blue, orange, and green.
Stuart’s victorian style show highlighted a lot of gothic black lace and high collars. High hemlines and plenty of cutouts were also prevalent.
The day before his big Target colab release, Gurung put on a brilliant show featuring a lot of structure. Plenty of olive and fur gave way to a cool military feel.
Taylor moved away from her signature florals and brights in favor of darker colors and grown up pieces.
Hoffman once again wowed with her signature tribal-meets-techno prints. Every look was like a little party walking down the runway!
Band of Outsiders
Band of Outsiders stays unique with untidy pieces in navy and pink.
One of the most anticipated shows of the Fall, Wang (aka the new creative director of Balenciaga) stayed true to himself with typical sporty-chic pieces.
Tibi showed comfy knits mixed with plenty of leather and vibrant colors.
Tailored jackets and big buttons were the staples of the fall collection, bring a very adult vibe to everything that came down the runway.

Hello all! I know we haven’t been on top of our NYFW postings, but here is a quick roundup of my favorites from the shows on Day 2 (Friday the 8th)
Rag & Bone
Once again, neutrals were the color of choice at the show. Structured jackets, updated houndstooth, and pops of color made many appearances on the runway.
Miller’s menswear inspired collection included a lot of updated basics and “cool girl” hats. Graphic prints and the “color of the hour” black was also showcased.
Ronson credited her “English heritage” for the inspiration behind the fall 2013 collection. It shows, with buttoned up pieces in neutral colors.
Suno, known for bold prints and popping colors, also seemed to stick to black in their collection. They still delivered with fun patterns in classic shapes.

Okay, I know we haven’t posted an official round up of yesterday’s shows yet, but we just need to take a second and talk about Rebecca Minkoff’s show. Megan and I were watching the rerun of the show this morning and I only have one word…OBSESSED. They had Wild Cub playing. Not just Wild Cub, but my personal favorite Wild Cub song, Thunder Clatter. DOES IT GET COOLER? OH YEAH, IT DOES! The looks themselves were among the greatest things I have seen. Puffly sleeves, awesome back cutouts, an amazing futuristic houndstooth print on skinny pants…and this is even without talking about the to die for coats and bags. Huge round of applause to Rebecca Minkoff for making me want literally EVERYTHING in this collection.

NYFW kicked off yesterday with a slew of high fashion and designer shows. Those of us who are not so lucky to be there, however, can still join in on the fun with “live streaming” shows and plenty of runway look photos. Today, we have the pleasure of being able to watch Jason Wu (1 PM EST), Rebecca Minkoff (3 PM EST), Rag & Bone (A favorite of Megan, 5 PM EST) and Nicole Miller (6 PM EST) from the comfort of our own homes thanks to Mercedes-Benz and Style.com. From the first shows I’ve seen, I’m predicting red as fall’s big color, mixed with a palette of classic neutrals in clean shapes. The boho and military looks also seem to be showcased once again. I’m giving a recap of my favorites from yesterday’s shows and some style tricks I’m hoping to try. Stay tuned for complete Fashion Week coverage (via my couch)!!

BCBG Max Azria
A favorite of every girl I know for prom, BCBG showed their ready-to-wear collection Thursday, showcasing chunky knits and an overall boho-cool vibe with an overall neutral palette.
Creatures of Comfort
Generally described as “quirky”, Creatures of Comfort showcased their first NYFW show on Wednesday with an art-inspired collection.
The year-old brand showcased their boho-military line pre-fashion week on Wednesday.
The company known and loved for their denim returned this fall with another ready-to-wear collection. Think streamlined cuts done in a New-York-cool way.
The brand formerly known for their terrycloth or velour sweatsuits is back with a grown up ready to wear collection, and it’s a biggie. Clocking in at 45 looks, it features everything that I want in my closet.
10 Crosby Derek Lam
The collection proves to be the brand’s most mature, mixing clean silhouettes with a neutral palette.
The designer credits most of his inspiration to time spent in Russia. The influence shines through with Orthodox Priest inspired jackets and classic peasant dresses.
This collection features magical dresses in fun shades all paired with the cool-girl staple, black tights. The floor length gown looks like something I’ll be coveting come prom time…
