My 10 Favorite Looks From Spring’s New York Fashion Week

17 Sep

With over 100 designer collections, it was hard for me to narrow down my favorites. But here they are. Let me know what you think!

 

This dress from Oscar De La Renta. Do I need to say more? The color is just perfection and you will definitely make an entrance with the graceful high-low hem. Now all you need is a cocktail.

This Alice + Olivia look just proves you can wear denim with the most precious of things. Take this mint leather a-line skirt. This is ladylike meets L.A. casual.

Varsity looks certainly do not look like they are taking a seat on the bleachers any time soon, at least according to Marc by Marc Jacobs. I certainly wouldn't wear these two together but this jacket is an easy daytime essential.

I may have played with Jem dolls too much as a kid but I find something refreshingly girly about these shorts from Custo Barcelona. They can even be a clever replacement for a party dress. Just add a pretty camisole.

This look from Tory Burch reminds me of the book "Valley of the Dolls." Now all you need is sex kitten hair and you can easily switch out the heels for a pair of Tory's amazing flats.

Joie and practically every other fashion designer embraced the bare midriff trend for the season. I like the Joie look because it just gives a glimpse of skin without trying too hard.

Ironically, I am showing a skirt here, which I love because it somehow grazes over imperfections (kind of like Vaseline over a camera lens).

I'm a sucker for a great short and Kate Spade showed a few. This metallic one will make your tan look glorious.
