New York Fashion Week proves that come February, everyone is eager to inject some spring into their wardrobes—even if the weather is not exactly cooperative. Street stylers didn’t let chilly temperatures dampen their color moods, braving the cold in brightly colored coats, puffers and power suits. Primary hues and crisp, white booties continue to dominate the city streets and have us looking to warmer seasons ahead.

It may still be winter (for just a couple more weeks!) but our favorite bloggers and Insta-stars serve as our springtime muses. Ahead, a collection of our favorite looks, plus links to shop similar styles.

Pep Gay’s Glamorous, Gilded Ladies at Tadashi Shoji | Baskstage Beauty

In his latest collection, Tadashi Shoji proves that power is synonymous with glamour and sexiness. His Fall 2018 runway embodied a fiercely feminine energy—each look that strutted down the catwalk, dramatic and deeply unapologetic.

To complement the strength of Tadashi’s collection, makeup artist Pep Gay was tasked with creating a beauty look that would continue the luxurious narrative of tulle gowns and sequined suits. Gay answered the call with a mesmerizing wash of gold on the eyes using MAC Cosmetics, harkening the elegance of the red carpet, where we can easily imagine Tadashi’s designs gracing the silhouettes of Hollywood A-listers. Just-bitten berry lips finished the look, creating truly beautiful makeup that does not compete with the fashions, but makes them shine. Ahead, we break down the look, so you can recreate it step by step.

Spring has officially sprung in New York City according to the fashion pack’s brightly colored outfits and hiked hemlines. Primary colors replace the usual head-to-toe neutrals and red continues to dominate as the current It color. But there is another standout hue on the horizon: canary yellow, as seen in brilliant knitwear, fluttering floral skirts, trousers and more. When the weather is so-so, street stylers bring their own sunshine.

Let these springy styles inspire you for the season ahead.

Rain showers didn’t wash away the style in the streets of New York this Fashion Week. Chic slickers and Perspex CHANEL hats were the preferred weather-appropriate attire for show attendees, with black brollies dotting the sidewalks. When the sun came out, so did the shades and the spring collections—layered under furry statement coats made necessary by February’s chill.

Winter may still be here, but these fashion folks have mastered transitional dressing. See how they do it during NYFW, come rain or shine.

Fashion Week Interviews Men’s Fashion

CFDA CEO Steven Kolb on the Decentralization of New York Fashion Week: Men’s

Before we dive into New York Fashion Week: Men’s—America’s showcase for the future of men’s fashion—we like to pregame with Steven Kolb, CEO of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), which organizes the event. Kolb helps us get the lay of the land. We appreciate him for that, because while the biannual bustle of runway shows and presentations in Manhattan is always inspiring, it’s a lot to take in.

In advance of this season during which designers will show their 2018 fall and winter collections, we talked about how NYFW:M currently exists in a state of flux. Men’s and women’s designers are showing during the same time period (men’s February 5-8, women’s February 8-16). That’s new. But what does it mean? And what does it mean when Kolb says NYFW:M has become “decentralized”?

We also spoke about the evolution of Fashion Week as a spectacle on social media (versus its old purpose as a marketplace for our buyers), and why the CFDA has lately found itself promoting not just fashion designers showing in New York—but New York City itself.

New York Fashion Week SS 2018 Marc Jacobs Fashion Week Style

Fashion Bytes: Marc Jacobs Wraps It Up at New York Fashion Week

Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at New York Fashion Week Spring 2018.

The brand: Marc Jacobs

The history: When Marc Jacobs launched in the mid-’80s, the label was famous for giant sweaters that cool downtown girls wore like dresses, with tights and boots. By the ’90s, Kate Moss and Gisele were walking in Marc Jacobs fashion shows, and the brand’s oversized fuzzy coats and slinky color-block separates helped define the decade’s aesthetic. Today, Marc Jacobs is known for its witty, gritty, independent approach to luxury, as well as its popular scents like Daisy and Decadence. In 2014, it became the first luxury brand to cast its advertising campaign via hashtag (#castmemarc).
