Fashion Week

The problem with the fashion calendar is that, because of internal industry processes of production, it is centered on delayed gratification. In a schedule that can confuse even the most seasoned industry veteran—just ask any editor—the clothes that are being shown throughout February and some of March will not enter stores until early fall. That said, the ideas behind the ensembles are ripe for the picking.

We've perused countless collections to select our most innovative yet wearable ensembles that we believe are easily recreated with items you currently own (or can own after a quick shipping period). Whether that's a refreshing dress-over-jeans combo à la Molly Goddard or an interesting play on proportions from Jil Sander, designers from New York to Paris have provided expert styling tips that can be implemented into our wardrobes as we speak.

We’ll be the first to go on record and say the pairing of dresses over pants is coming back and we are here for it. Take a cue from Molly Goddard, and tone down an uber-feminine silhouette with relaxed, cuffed denim.

Sweater Dress + Teddy Coat + Belt

A perfect ensemble for the last dredges of chilly weather, this look is nothing if not plush. Leather accessories lend a bit of structure to not one, but two layers of cozy fabric—a teddy coat and a sweater dress.

The preppy look seems to have cemented itself as a trend with staying power. We love Maria Grazia Chiuri’s take at Dior that adds a hint of an equestrian spin with a pair of knee-high black leather boots.

Dries Van Noten has shown us once again that the key to a great outfit is contrast. Here, he has paired a structured blazer with a feminine silky camisole and a deconstructed denim skirt—genius!

Lean into menswear with this innovative look from Tod’s by reaching for the classics: a crisp oversize button-down and a pair of black wide-leg trousers. The simple gold cuff adds the perfect touch of modern femininity.

While the concept of this ensemble is nothing revolutionary, the mix of texture, color, and pattern is. Jason Wu has shown us how to subtly mix prints, layering a floral blouse beneath a striped sweater.

Nina Leather Boots

Bodysuit + Full Skirt + Chunky Necklace

Jil Sander

Interesting outfits always have a solid mix of proportions, just like the one in question from Jil Sander. We love the way the full skirt complements the slim-fit bodysuit. Finish it all off with the ultimate wardrobe staple: a chelsea boot.
