Most of fashion week consists of running to and from shows, ogling over gorgeous designs, and critiquing the validity of [insert semi-well known designer here]'s collection. If we're going to be honest, it's a total tease. Yes, editors get a first look at next season's designs so that we can start planning shoots and features (hence the initial purpose of the week-long event), but one can't actually shop the collection—which is painful if you see something you fall in love with. Luckily, though, there are now fast-fashion brands to help you recreate the look, stat. Plus, plenty of the styles are simple re-workings of classic wardrobe staples that you might already own.
