There were some incredibly beautiful pieces in the collection, but the thing I was most drawn to was the burgundy skirt pictured on the left — it's a perfect color for fall and it looked very easy to wear. – Gemma Kim

I would not consider myself to be a bad girl, but every so often I like to dress like one. This oversized denim coat, lined with bubblegum pink and black shearling, is kind of cutesy but it still has an edge, which is very "on-brand" for me. — Alyssa Vingan Klein

Even the strongest fur opponents have to admit this looks like the warmest, coziest item of clothing ever made, right? OK, they probably won't. But I love that this coat has a hood. — Dhani Mau

I'm always here for some Southwestern inspiration, and this fringed sweater at Altuzarra is the sort of piece I'd happily wear for years — and through all seasons. The black and white snood is also extra appealing in the midst of this Polar Vortex. — Alyssa Vingan Klein

Baja East

The designer duo's show notes referenced a three-day stint at the legendary Berlin nightclub Berghain, and if I were to spend 72 hours in a techno-infused stupor, this would be my look of choice (comfort is key). The galactic-like motif, inspired by American artist Ross Bleckner, gives this silk set an extra layer of cool. — Maria Bobila

Hey, Lenny Kravitz, this scarf (blanket? adult swaddle?) is calling your name. The fuzzy shower slides, a collaboration with Fila, are an added touch to Baja East's dedication to the cozy life. — Maria Bobila

Christian Siriano

I'm hoping to see this floral appliqué jumpsuit — with or without lining — on on one of Siriano's red carpet starlets at some point. The finely woven marigold florals incorporate the inspiration from the "Art of Yarn" exhibit by artist Sheila Hicks and the sultry V-neck and pants silhouette bring a touch of David Bowie's sexy androgynous style, per the show notes and the finale walk to the late singer's "Let's Dance." — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Collina Strada

Collina Strada designer Hillary Taymour told me she made these shoes for her presentation by compromising with her stylist. Taymour wanted slippers and the stylist wanted cowboy boots. The result is weird and magical and really contributed to the otherworldly vibe she had going on throughout the presentation. — Chantal Fernandez

Dion Lee

It's kind of hard to tell in this picture, but this Dion Lee skirt has this fantastic shower curtain-like effect in the front thanks to two circular metal pieces from which fabric is gathered. It was strange but fantastic and brought a lot of movement to the look. — Chantal Fernandez 

Hervé Léger

Those iconic bandage dresses aren't really my thing, and not just because I care too much about my own comfort to ever wear shapewear. I appreciated that — in the name of rock 'n' roll — Max Azria incorporated looser silhouettes and a tougher element for fall, including this flared geometric textured jacquard dress layered between opaque leggings and a grommet-detailed puffy coat. I also appreciated how he counterbalanced the above and the signature body-squeezing, boob-boosting silhouettes with a lace-up creeper wedge boot that's a refreshing departure from the expected strappy platform stiletto. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Jill Stuart's fall '16 collection definitely brought Hedi Slimane's '90s glam-grunge vibe and Alessandro Michele's '70s references to mind — including this Lurex vest, gold lamé blouse and denim-blue suede kick flares. But whatever, it's all girlie fun — at a more accessible price point — that we expect from Jill Stuart. Or maybe bad girlie fun considering the show notes, which referenced rebel songs from various decades – from Duran Duran's '80s-era "Girls on Film" to early 'aughts fave Blink 182's "Another Girl, Another Planet." — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Kaelen

If there's one thing Kaelen Haworth is good at, it's making women feel like our best, most powerful, feminine selves. This pleated maxi dress would be fabulous in its metallic sheen, but if you look closely, it's decorated with spindly leafy prints. Dress it up or down, this piece could definitely become my new go-to. — Maura Brannigan

Paul Andrew

These sandals were inspired by Turkish tulips. I stared at them for a long time, not only because they were beautiful, but because they are constructed in a way that the petal pieces appear to be delicately perched, but are, in fact, very securely sewn on there. — Chantal Fernandez 

Phelan

Generally, I think performances detract from runway shows, but surprisingly, I really liked what Phelan did at La MaMa with the Vim Vigor Dance Theater Company performers. While the dancers were performing on three ramps, the models walked out slowly and intentionally, which was actually very helpful because I had time to appreciate the clothes. The knitwear pieces really stood out among others, which is not at all surprising given Amanda Phelan's former occupation as knitwear designer at Alexander Wang. And this knit top, paired with a gold accordion-like skirt, really caught my eye. — Gemma Kim

You can't tell from this photo, but this silver top caught the light and sparkled the whole time the model walked on the runway. Obviously, I loved that. The look feels very familiar, but I still want it. — Gemma Kim

Pyer Moss

Kerby Jean-Raymond, the designer behind up-and-coming label Pyer Moss, isn't afraid to mix politics with fashion. His spring 2016 show delivered an address on police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement — for which the designer lost his venue and a buyer. For fall 2016, he collaborated with R&B singer Erykah Badu on the styling of the show. Models, both men and women, wore padded outerwear resembling the interior of an insane asylum cell, some affixed with silver bands. Sweatshirts that read like the warning label of a prescription drug ("Call your doctor at once if you have any mood or behavior changes / confusion / anxiety," etc.). and wool stationmaster's adorned with bright pins reading various drug names, like "Zoloft" and "Oxy." The pieces delivered a powerful statement while still having a great deal of commercial appeal, like this long blue duster coat. — Lauren Indvik

I really loved the outerwear at Pyer Moss, but this unhooked pair of overalls really appealed to me because it looks sharp and cozy. I also like the apron affect. — Chantal Fernandez 

Ryan Roche

Ryan Roche's all-knitwear collection, inspired by late '80s photographs by Arthur Elgort, was full of things I wanted to be swathed in. I particularly loved this white-on-white look, with the sweater's interesting neckline and the skirt's alluring side slits. — Dhani Mau

Self-Portrait

If you thought Self-Portrait had exhausted all the many ways one could employ lace, you were sorely mistaken. I loved the Gothic quality of the coloring paired with the femininity of the material. This piece was a real winner, and I expect to see it on many a red carpet and/or late-night TV interview slot soon enough. — Maura Brannigan

Suno

It's not often that you can wear a metallic printed floral dress, but thanks to the high neck knit, this glamorous dress actually felt functional (I'm serious!) and modern. I feel slightly bad that I'm talking about this look when there were a lot of other incredibly detailed pieces that were much more subtle, but this dress stole my heart.  — Gemma Kim
