NYFW

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.

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!

I was weaving my way through the mayhem after the Rodarte show and stumbled upon our very own Olivia Kim! Olivia is an inspiration, both in life and in fashion. I love her keen and creative eye and her willingness to experiment with fashion. Today’s look is a unique mix of casual menswear and formal femininity. I would never have imagined a pairing such as this, but I can’t stop thinking about it now. Thanks for the challenge, Olivia!

Mixing classic silhouettes with modern textures is a great way to update a look. The full skirt is one of the season’s hottest trends, and Sana’s leather version is perfect for fall. Her graphic-print crop top is a contemporary pairing, while her pink clutch and d’Orsay stilettos harken back to the ’50s. This modern city lady looks absolutely lovely!

This fashion legend needs no introduction. Nina Garcia, Marie Claire’s creative director, is a legend in her own right. Her understated style is a perfect match for the season’s trends.

I love her expertly tailored, menswear-inspired blazer and modern choker necklace. Floor-skimming denim is just beginning to emerge and, of course, Nina shows us how it’s done!

Jessica Minkoff, Marie Claire’s senior market editor, has ridiculously awesome style. Every time I run into her, I am guaranteed future outfit inspiration. Today’s look has some serious city edge. Denim is still a major theme at Fashion Week, and I love Jessica’s distressed set. Her moto jacket and moto-inspired handbag are the perfect complements to rough-and-tumble denim. I can’t wait to see what she wears tomorrow!

I’m pretty sure Lise could wear a burlap sack and make it look like a million bucks. That said, this stunning lady went quite a few steps beyond burlap and wowed with a super trendy style.

Gingham is such a major print this year—and the bigger and bolder the pattern, the better! Her patchwork denim jacket is the perfect urban-casual pairing, while her white crop top lets the statement pieces shine. I can’t wait to try out this look when I get home from Fashion Week!

I love all of these amazing monochromatic ensembles we’re seeing this Fashion Week. Bridgit’s chic look is pretty much perfection in cream. Her conceptual sweater vest adds a touch of texture, as does her luxe snakeskin clutch. Aviators are a classic and work seamlessly with this clean, contemporary outfit. And that little pop of color on Bridgit’s platform heels peeking out—genius!

Well, look who it is: Seattle’s own Julia Dudko! Although she’s still a student at the University of Washington, Julia has managed to build quite the following for her personal style blog, Society Grl. She says she loves fashion and, of course, shopping at Nordstrom!

Julia’s Lincoln Center look is all about subtle drama. I love this draped sleeveless dress. It’s the perfect cut, the perfect length and the perfect relaxed fit—the trifecta of perfection! Julia’s modern mules are a must have this season, too. See you back in Seattle, Julia!
