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.
TOMMY HILFIGERDuuuuude, 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 DAVISWear: MGSM Colorblocked Top
Listen to: “Locals Only” by Surf Punks
Watch: Blue CrushBeautify with: Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray
MARC JACOBSThe 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 YOTKAWear: Red Valentino Sequin and Lace Dress
Listen to: “The Queen is Dead” by The Smiths
Watch: The Fifth ElementBeautify with: Nars Larger Than Life Eyeliner in “Abbey Road”
DKNYDKNY 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 DARWINWear: DKNY for Opening Ceremony
Listen to: “How We Do (Party)” by Rita OraWatch: The Babysitters ClubBeautify with: Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids Lipcolor in “Electric Orange” and “Neon Red”KAREN WALKERThis 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. -- RWDWear: Silence + Noise Space-Dye Sweater
Listen to: “Tomorrow Never Knows” by The BeatlesWatch: WonderwallBeautify with: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in “Electric Grandma”HELMUT LANGDear 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. -- LDWear: Zara Vest
Listen to: “Northern Lights” by Kate BoyWatch: Basic InstinctBeautify with: Ellis Faas Lip Gloss in “Sheer Berry”THEYSKENS’ THEORYI 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! -- SYWear: Topshop Two-Piece Cami Top
Listen to: “Fake Plastic Trees” by RadioheadWatch: CluelessBeautify with: MAC Pro-Longwear Paint Pot in “Let’s Skate”
