Hear that? It’s the sound of a legion of editors and bloggers stuffing shoes into designer luggage and tucking eye cream into carry-on bags. That’s right: It’s time for New York Fashion Week again. The shows begin February 10; let’s prepare by way of review. (Of course, since spring collections are arriving every day now, you can also review and prepare by shopping!)

HERE’S WHAT WE WERE ALL TALKING ABOUT LAST SEASON

{ 0 comments }

If a single piece of clothing could signify this moment in time—could represent early 2016 and the current winter-into-spring era—it would be the bomber jacket. It works equally well for men and women, and as a cardigan-like layer or true protection against the elements.

Just about every designer showed some variation of this timeless staple during the last round of Fashion Weeks, so now that all those want-worthy spring styles are showing up in our stores, we’ve only seen the beginning of bombermania.

Starting with the richly ornate and totally cozy olive-green Chloé number above, we selected our top nine iterations of this must-have-right-now topper.

Carolina Herrera envisioned spring fashion through rose-colored glasses, with a dreamy yet intricately constructed collection. The Frick Museum was the perfect Beaux-Arts backdrop for Herrera’s urbane mix of soft colors and structured, gridlike surfaces held together by sheer strips of fabric. The end result: minimal, elegant looks befitting modern uptown girls.

Carolina Herrera is available in selected stores at our Designer Eveningwear boutiques.

Madeline Poole is one of the nail world’s ultimate cool girls, so cool-girl outfitter Phillip Lim brought her in to handle an important detail of his 10th anniversary runway event.

Maya Lin is one of the art world’s most architecturally and environmentally aware sculptors, so she was Lim’s choice for designing the set for a conceptual, purposeful collection titled Stop and Smell the Flowers.

As a way of going both micro and macro, we got the scoop on Poole’s fun, trend-riffing contributions as well as insight on Lin and Lim’s earth-centered collaboration, which benefits the What Is Missing? Foundation and Perfect Earth Project.

Celine Aagaard is living up to her blog’s name, Hippie Hippie Milkshake. This all-white look has retro undertones, thanks to lace, flares and fringe. The palette and cool styling modernize the ’70s aesthetic. The Breton-style cap is the new It hat of the season, and it looks great with Celine’s style.

Now this is an outfit I can see myself in. I think I’ve finally found the perfect pair of culottes, thanks to Anna. These military-inspired culottes get an A+, especially when paired with tall suede boots and an oversized sweater. The turtleneck has been ever-present this season, making me glad I invested in a few basics earlier this year! A mini bag adds a hit of color and pattern to this minimalist-chic look.

I can always count on Sofie Valkiers to have an impeccable ensemble. It can be tough to incorporate new trends into your wardrobe without compromising your personal style, but Sofie manages with aplomb. Her kimono-inspired chambray robe is a stunning statement piece. A bright turtleneck adds a bit of Sofie’s trademark color, while the touches of white throughout keep things clean and modern.

Pandora is one of my favorite Londoners. She has a unique individual style that fits her perfectly. Today’s retro look works so well with the ’60s and ’70s themes we’ve been watching on the runway. Cropped flares with the It boot of the season keep the vintage vibe alive.

New York Fashion Week: February 16

Highlights from yesterday’s shows, including Alice + Olivia’s luxurious take on ‘70s chic, an ode to grunge and proportion play from 3.1 Phillip Lim, a soft focus on rag & bone‘s urban tomboy, a menswear mash-up at Veronica Beard and Donna Karan New York exploring the heights of the nighttime Manhattan skyline.

These two look très cool and perfectly minimal. They’re hitting so many trends right on the money: sweatshirts, baby blue, tall boots, loose shorts. I am dying for cooler temperatures so I can break out all my turtleneck sweaters and oversized sweatshirts. The luminous Parisian sun, along with tortoise sunnies and chic bags, is the perfect complement.
