How amazing does Spanish actress Laetitia Casta look in this bold noonday sun? She practically radiates grace and glamour. I love vintage, and this fifties-inspired look is beyond beautiful.

The full, patterned skirt is a must-have this fall, and burgundy is going to be the must-wear color, so Laetitia is right on point. Her simple pastel blouse is an understated complement to the statement skirt and heels.

I’ve never been much of a fan of ruffles, but Jessica has converted me. Her cascading one-shouldered blouse is heavenly and her loose, wavy hair is an excellent complement. Jessica’s pairing of an extremely feminine top with tailored menswear trousers is an unexpectedly lovely case of “opposites attract.” The all-black palette keeps this look clean and evokes modern elegance.

No question about it: Margaret Zhang is one of my favorite Fashion Week girls! This blogger (Shine by Three) dresses with a confidence and deftness that belies her years. Still a student, she also manages a successful blog in Australia.

I adore suiting on women, and Margaret’s black and white look is pitch-perfect. I love the contrast, the sleek cut and the relaxed draping of her blouse and blazer. A cool leather backpack is an unexpected but totally clever touch.

Cosmopolitan magazine’s illustrious Fashion Market Editor, Shiona Turini, was gracious enough to let me do a mini photo shoot with her today. It was blazing hot, but she was a trooper! Shiona’s style is pure NYC femme. White is still one of the most popular colors of the year, but I like that Shiona added a little flavor to her look with a sleek snakeskin pencil skirt. But, I have to admit, my real obsession is that gorgeous patchwork Dior purse!

Well, hello, fringed shorts! I am so into this quirky look. There are so many interesting little details, but the all-black palette keeps things from getting too out of hand. I’ve spotted that metallic eye clutch all over New York and I’m starting to get a little obsessed. Retro patches are an emerging theme and Giselly’s cropped sweatshirt has some super-cute tattoo-inspired hearts on her sleeve. Those heavy-duty chain boots are yet another statement piece. Way to pull it all together!

As I’ve mentioned a hundred times before, I am totally enamored with all things jumpsuit-related. Heidi’s striped one-piece has hypnotized me with its amazingness! The wide-leg cut is right on trend for the season, and I love how the fitted bodice keeps things balanced. By pairing this summery statement piece with a tailored navy blazer, Heidi has created a fantastic transitional ensemble to take her into fall.

I am so envious of Danielle’s leather overalls! I have been coveting this style, but never had the guts to go for it. Now that I’ve seen how cool Danielle Bernstein (Weworewhat) makes this statement piece look, I think I’m ready to give it a try.

Danielle somehow makes what could be an over-the-top, edgy piece look urban chic and effortless. I love that she is rocking the white sneaker trend with her all-black ensemble. Well played, Miss Bernstein!

I know I’ve already raved about stripes a dozen times, but they’re just the most versatile pattern ever! Nausheen’s bold, body-con pencil skirt and knotted silk blouse combo is yet another excellent example of casual urban femme.

As a stylist, Nausheen Shah is always thinking ahead, but keeps her roots in the classics. I wish I could have Nausheen style my outfits everyday!

Trend Recap: New Model Army

The military goes soft! Another trend that we have seen growing in importance throughout the week is a hybrid take on all things military and safari. Luxe fabrics in olive and khaki are key, and they are combined with utility details and relaxed silhouettes for the ultimate in laid-back chic. At ease!
