Elizabeth and James

White continues to be one of the most popular colors in fashion. Alise’s whites are clean, crisp and sporty. Her grey neoprene coat furthers the modern sportswear theme. A bright yellow bag and red lip infuse the look with a pop of color.

Subtlety can often stand out during Fashion Week’s more hectic shows. I love Julia’s minimalist urban-cool vibe. She has a few quirky touches (hello, lip clutch!) that keep things interesting. Lace-up stilettos are my newest obsession, and this low-heeled style looks stunning and actually wearable.

I cannot handle how cute Roberta looks in these retro overalls. These slim denim flares are perfect for the ’70s revival trend and work well with tall wooden platforms. Nautical stripes and leopard are always excellent mixed-print partners. The structured bag and sleek hat are modern and cool additions to this retro look.

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!
