New York Fashion Week is done! From the squiggly stripes at Marc by Marc Jacobs to the flat sandals at Suno, we saw a lot of items we love during the week. 

Instead of waiting six months for our favorites items to hit stores, though, we're getting in on the spring '14 action now with the best songs, movies, beauty items, and clothing inspired by our favorite collections from the week. Consider a way to have springtime fun at fall temperatures. Plus, we'll take about any excuse to watch Clueless or listen to The Beatles we can get!

Check out our picks to get inspired from our favorite shows and tweet us your top NYFW picks. 

Duuuuude, I would literally wear every single item sent down the surf-inspired Tommy Hilfiger spring '14 runway. Neoprene jackets? Yes please. Wetsuit-aping leather pants? Definitely. Brightly colored, beach-inspired mules? I'll take them in both colors. Surfing USA, indeed. -- REBECCA WILLA DAVIS
Wear: MGSM Colorblocked Top
Listen to: "Locals Only" by Surf Punks
Watch: Blue Crush
Beautify with: Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray

The spring collection from MJ is just was the raddest, randomest assortment of trends and references smushed together with a Victorian punk Frat party vibe. It's like un-fashionable fashion... I am in love. -- STEFF YOTKA
Wear: Red Valentino Sequin and Lace Dress
Listen to: "The Queen is Dead" by The Smiths
Watch: The Fifth Element
Beautify with: Nars Larger Than Life Eyeliner in "Abbey Road"

DKNY was my most fun show of Fashion Week, hands down. It was the perfect mashup of old-meets-new, spanning the '90s spectrum (logos, overalls, and anoraks) while simultaneously keeping things sporty and fresh. The fact that Rita Ora ran down the runway and high-fived the front row was only the icing on an already-sweet cake.  -- LIZA DARWIN
Wear: DKNY for Opening Ceremony
Listen to: "How We Do (Party)" by Rita Ora
Watch: The Babysitters Club
Beautify with: Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids Lipcolor in "Electric Orange" and "Neon Red"

This show was like the Beatles go to India with a preppy twist. Though I'd circle the globe for that Utopia jersey, the space-dye sweaters, gauzy pants, and beaded chokers should all give you good vibes come spring. -- RWD
Wear: Silence + Noise Space-Dye Sweater
Listen to: "Tomorrow Never Knows" by The Beatles
Watch: Wonderwall
Beautify with: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in "Electric Grandma"

Dear Helmut Lang, why are you so perfect? Proving that the '90s don't necessarily have to be all about grunge or even slinky slipdresses, designers Nicole and Michael Colovos riffed on the decade the Helmut way. They took the "less is more" motto to heart with minimalist separates (boxy shell tanks, wispy dresses, and yep, tons of leather) in a color palette of mostly black and white. Crisp, cohesive, and totally cool. -- LD
Wear: Zara Vest
Listen to: "Northern Lights" by Kate Boy

Watch: Basic Instinct
Beautify with: Ellis Faas Lip Gloss in "Sheer Berry"

I am addicted to wearing white T-shirts under tanks and dresses, and this Theyskens' Theory show just opened my eyes to a whole new world of '90s-inspired layering potential. Short dresses over long dresses!? Sheer pants over shorts!? Genius! -- SY
Wear: Topshop Two-Piece Cami Top
Listen to: "Fake Plastic Trees" by Radiohead
Watch: Clueless
Beautify with: MAC Pro-Longwear Paint Pot in "Let's Skate"
