I never thought of myself as much of a “statement skirt” kind of girl, but Maiko has converted me! Her peek-a-boo number is hot, hot, hot! And her oversized, cropped sweatshirt is such an intriguing juxtaposition. Add some classic pearls and stilettos to the mix, and you have one awesome outfit. J’adore!

The fashion world’s motto this season is “casual, comfortable and cool.” Rebecca sums up this ethos quite nicely!

She said she can’t live without her moto jacket (you and me both, Rebecca!), and it’s the perfect way to add a little tough texture to this laid-back look. Slip-on sneakers and mid-length shorts are big trends at the moment, as is black-and-white contrast. My fave bit, however? Her French sailor stripes!

I really wanted to make a marine pun, but I’ll restrain myself and just say that I adore this modern take on the nautical stripe. Laura’s graphic shift pairs perfectly with her wool bomber and her sleek clutch. Her heels (which are amazing, by the way!) add some mixed print contrast, and a bold lip is the cherry on top. Well done, Laura!

The phrase “urban warrior” gets bandied around quite a bit in the fashion world as many of the industry’s edgier brands tend toward a gritty, industrial look. But last night in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard, Alexander Wang showed what might be the definitive take on city survivalism. Models stormed the runway wearing thick sweaters, oversized utility coats, leather dickies and shield-like boots. Jolts of bright color kept the collection optimistic and lively, in addition to playful laser-cut paisley jackets and zig-zag dresses.

We’re eagerly awaiting Alexander Wang’s spring 2014 collection for Balenciaga, debuting next Thursday at Paris Fashion Week. He turned to the brand’s roots for fall, creating clean, supremely elegant pieces in a crisp palette of black and white.

The scene outside the Christopher Kane show was beyond chaotic. Between the construction, traffic and security people running everywhere, it was nearly impossible to get a shot in. Luckily, this lovely lady was game to hop into the street with me.

I adore this look, from head to toe, with its edgy prep and sporty mod vibes. The leather details, the zipper, the sheer elements and the creeper-inspired shoes all add up to my perfect outfit.

Bev’s modern lady look is pitch-perfect with the season. Her oversized gingham mohair sweater is beyond covetable and is well paired with a simple full skirt.

Londoners love creative footwear, and Bev’s blocked heels are modern and quirky chic. Add in a simple white clutch and you’ve got yourself a winning look!

Lookbooks are one of the best parts of the resort season, which kicked off earlier this month. It’s fun to see the different models and settings the designers choose, like Joan Smalls on a rainy city street for Givenchy or Hanne Gaby Odiele against stark white walls for Theyskens’ Theory. We’ve culled a few of our favorite shots from the new collections below.

While I love a good denim and leather combination, it’s Thea’s snake-print tux jacket that pulled me in. Thea says it’s her new go-to garment and that she’s been pairing it with everything she can. There’s something quite modern and cosmopolitan about Thea’s look, but the casual elements keep things fun and youthful.

Lian has a sleek, updated Mod look going on. The windowpane print is a clear winner this week, and I love the retro, mock-neck fit of Lian’s top. Her sharp camel coat gives the look a little vintage flair, while her accessories keep things cutting edge. Her bright red lip is the perfect color complement to a modern, neutral palette.
