NYFW Day 7 Recap

Fashion week is winding down.  Today is the last day of shows.  This past week has been full of inspiration and fashion overload.  I am really excited about the trends and looks for Fall.  I know we are about to jump into spring, but now you have an idea of what to shop for next season.  Wednesdays shows were filled with big names.  Some of these designers have been around since before I was born, and their clothes are still as chic and gorgeous as ever. 

If you don't own a coat in this rich orange color for fall, you are truly missing out. It is the perfect compliment to darks and neutrals.  I love how Yigal Azroual uses color and mixes them together to create this rich and dreamy palette. 

Nannette Lepore's Fall collection is a mix of black, light blues, and soft neutrals. The looks were very feminine and romantic.  Almost fairy tale like in the way they were made. 

Derek Lam had another collection in fashion week for the fall.  He has collaborated with Ebay for a super chic collection.  The dresses were two silhouettes; A long seventies style maxi dress, and a short boxier style dress. You can now own a Derek Lam design for a fraction of what his label costs.  Some of the designs will be available in May. 

I can't even begin to describe all the amazing details, clothes, and designs that graced the runway at Michael Kors yesterday. I could have put every look on this post as my favorite, but I just chose some of my ultimate favorites.He is so ridiculously talented! The colors were mostly neutral and black, but they were far from drab and boring!!! Literally every look was something I could see myself or friends wearing.  And I am DYING over this black dress with the super high slit.  It's amazing how a designer can turn a black dress into an absolute show stopping knock out piece.


Tulle, Tulle, and more Tulle was the trend at Marchesa's Fall collection.  There wasn't a design that didn't have tulle on it somewhere. From dainty, feminine designs, to dark edgy frocks, these ladies go all out when it comes to design. 

Oscar de la Renta is the fashion show of ALL fashion shows.  And his Fall collection is as luxurious and gorgeous as ever! There was an underlying russian feel to his first set of designs.  With fur hats, coats, and vests, you will stay super cozy next fall.  His eveningwear was just as extravagant. From the mosaic-like column dress, to the black ruffle and fur gown, Oscar really knows what works for women.  He is a mastermind when it comes to design, and his clothes are an excellent example of that.

If you are into native american patterns and prints, then the fall collection from Proenza Schouler will have you drooling.  The inspiration for this collection came from a trip to Santa Fe.  They were so inspired by the beauty of that area, that they came back to their studio and designed their own patterns for this collection.  This style isn't for everyone, but you can mix a little of it somewhere in your wardrobe.  Maybe a scarf, jewlery, or bag would be more your style. Although I am LOVING the pants in the first photo!

Lots of Lace, layering, leopard, leather, and length were trends seen on the runway of Elie Tahari's fall collection.  Tahari is known for his office-esque attire, but this collection has some nightlife looks as well.  There was also lot's of drama with prints and fabrics, as well as sleek monochromatic styles. 
Velvet was the fabric of choice for Michelle Smith's Milly fall collection. From gaucho pants, trousers, dresses and blazers, this collection emits warm chic.  I also love the shorter pleated skirt.  Ladies, I am telling you, a pleated skirt needs to be in your closet next fall. It is so versitile and classic.
