Elizabeth and James

This modern, Southwest-inspired sweater is already the season’s must-have style. I am definitely putting this sweater on my shopping list! The oversized, relaxed fit is perfect for the season, and I love how Maria has added some sex appeal to the cozy knit with leather shorts and thigh-high boots. Her mini YSL bag adds just the right hit of gold to the look.

Another day at PFW, another awesome outfit! Lana’s edgy, sport-inspired number is uber-trendy. Not only does she have a modern moto, but she’s also sporting a nostalgic sweatshirt and leather shorts. Heavy boots, a bold choker and chain-strap bag add some metallic edge to the look.

Rola is cute as can be! I love a good layered look, and Rola is masterfully mixing some of the season’s hottest trends. Textural coats are a major theme this winter, and her addition of a floral moto jacket underneath is so clever. Rola said she tries to get in the springtime spirit, even if it’s still snowing out. I, for one, appreciate her efforts to remind us of warmer days ahead!

Miroslava Duma is in the top 5 of the most in-demand street style stars. If she attends a show, you can bet every photographer in the vicinity will run her down for a shot. Considering the craziness that surrounds her, she’s remarkably composed and gracious.

Miro has impeccable, cutting-edge taste and she changes her look for every show, so it’s always an exciting surprise to see what she comes up with next.

Blogger buds Lainy (Haute Inhabit) and Camille (Camille Over the Rainbow) are Fashion Week perfection.  Their upscale, casual-chic style is on point for an afternoon show and for the season.

Both lace and macrame-like wovens are on the rise for autumn, and these two ladies show us how to transition the trend. Lainy is a returning style star to our blog, and I’m quite certain we’ll be checking in with Camille again as well!

Shoppers are frequently flabbergasted over how far ahead the fashion world plans: “Shorts for sale in February??” But when it comes to Fashion Week, looking at fall collections in the dead of winter feels pretty good. It’s all sweaters, coats and boots—just what the doctor ordered. Last night, Elizabeth and James brought the cozy and then some with its fall/winter 2013 presentation on the rooftop of the Hôtel Americano. Unveiled in tandem with the brand’s handbag launch, the collection featured plush pullovers made of feather yarn, faux shearling coats and the world’s cutest oversized polka-dot sweater. At this rate, winter can stay all year.

The lovely Parisa is back on the blog once more! Parisa is a designer and loves the creative craziness of the fashion week tents. While her fave part of Fashion Week is meeting up with old friends, she said the shows have been inspiring.

Her crisp, white ensemble is simply chic, and her printed skinnies add trendy interest. Of course, you can’t go wrong with a bold, bright lip!

Triple threat! These three beautiful ladies (check out Jacey from last year) work for E! Entertainment, have killer style, and run successful blogs (Damsel in Dior & Catalina Su). Even though it was a million degrees in NYC today, this trio kept cool and chic. Their prints and metallic accents are spot on for the season.
