NYFW 2013- Favorites

Can you feel it in the air? Hear the high pitch screams of fashionistas everywhere? That's right, it's Ready-To-Wear Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week and designers did not disappoint. From multiple textures layered together to unexpected color choices, NYFW has blown our minds once again. I'll start with the usual, black everything (of course), wool coats, structured pants and fur was seen on almost every runway. But it was the unusual that really had me thinking outside of my comfort zone. This year Michael Kors mixed up his collection with cobalt blues, neon pops of color and camouflage. Tory Burch brought grandma chic with soft whites and delicate beading. BCBG Max Azria featured moody florals in deep, dark colors. Betsey Johnson stuck to what she knows best with bright pinks, yellows and blues for fun workout gear. No matter who you stopped in to see, every designers brought their A game and left you wanting more. I almost get a little emotional knowing that NYFW will be over tomorrow, until I remember we still have Lodon, Milan and Paris after.

Michael Kors brought so many fabulous elements to his collection. This first look is so business chic until she turned around the top was backless. It gave the outfit a little bit of unexpected sexiness I didn't know I wanted.

A cobalt blue, high-low, sweetheart strapless dress? Yes please. I have no idea where I would wear this, but I would think of some occasion because it's just so cute.


I love how Vera Wang used minimal make-up with dark plum lipstick on all the models. It gives the sweet florally outfits a little goth side and I for one am obsessed. I also love the mix and match prints and color choices she used. There were a couple of outfits with this gorgeous vibrant purple that I could not get over.

I love, love, love this creamy fabric with giant beadwork that Tory Burch featured. The collar and trim on both of these garments is so girly and pretty, I could wear it over and over again. The skirt is another piece with gorgeous detail on the bottom. I also love that she kept everything else black to give it more drama.

Then out walked this dress from Tory that is so babydoll chic, I fell in love all over again. I love the soft pink color with gold accents. The collar on this dress alone is to die for.

Alice + Olivia is by far, hands down my favorite collection. There are almost no words for how beautiful every piece is. Not only did they bring florals in amazing colors, but they used unexpected textures together perfectly. I love the quilted leather and tulle ballerina skirt combo in the second picture. Every single outfit was better than the next and the finale did not let me down. These high neck, open back, lace and feather dresses are so perfect in every way I can not stop staring at them. Especially with the bold red lip they used in every shot.

Now that you have my favorites it's time to tell me yours. Did any shows not live up to their name? Was there one that blew you away? You can look at all the collections here and then leave your thoughts below.
