Black was the biggest color for fall. To keep things interesting, take note of how designers played with fabrics. Mixing leather, sheer, and shine makes a head-to-toe black outfit anything but boring. Since I’m a fan of color, I particularly liked how Calvin Klein added a subtle pop of pink with lipstick to brighten the jet black trend.

Just about every suit was shown on the New York runways: cropped pant suits, 70s-inspired 3-piece suits, dressy skirt suits and sporty skirt suits. Translation? Basically any type of suit works for 2013. The great part about investing in a suit is you can wear the pieces as separates. The minute I saw Christian Siriano’s metallic number, I instantly wanted to pair the blazer with skinny jeans.

A snow storm decided to hit fashion week on Day 2. I brightened up the day with vivid colorblocking. The brights were right in line with Kate Spade’s colorful Fall 2013 presentation. From the prints to the bow purses and gold capped shoes, I was obsessed with everything!
After a few meetings, it was time to brave Nemo and step out to Nicole Miller, who showed a darker side with her tomboy inspired collection. There was one blazer with leather sleeves I’d kill for!
