The Absolute Best Looks to Walk the Runways of New York Fashion Week
Let's face it: there's a lot coming and going down the runway over the course of a day during New York Fashion Week. Each show alone is packed with pretty designs and looks good enough to (almost!) make us want to skip Spring and go straight to Fall 2014. After the first day's crash course in cozy outerwear and layering at Coach, BCBG Max Azria, and Marissa Webb; day two's transportive eveningwear from Jason Wu and Cushnie et Ochs; and day three's shockers, day four continued to bring the gold (literally, in some instances, as was the case with Diane von Furstenberg). And just when we thought day five was Fashion Week's biggest yet, Tuesday's shows brought the real drama with unexpected influences like Weimar-era cabarets in Berlin at J.Crew, medieval armor at Tory Burch, and (most literally) Rodarte's Star Wars prints. Whether they were fighting against or pushing along the trends, day seven was a fitting way to (nearly) wrap up the week with shows like Proenza Schouler, Reed Krakoff, and Michael Kors moving the conversation along. To sum up Fashion Week, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, J. Mendel, and Marc Jacobs closed the show schedule with strong collections that took moments we had been seeing throughout the eight days and gave them their boldest takes yet. Here are the most memorable looks that we'll have on our minds all this week and beyond.
