Öhlin/D's spring 2017 presentation was set up in a dreamy garden, perfect for the pretty pastels and ivy-draped clothes that already have me dreaming of next summer. I took so many photos of this particular outfit I'm worried that I freaked out the model. —Tyler McCall

While I love pastels for spring, sometimes you want something with a little more bite. The zigzag metallic detail on this Charles Youssef dress provides just that. — Tyler McCall

No one does chic, office-ready tailoring quite like Marissa Webb, but this floaty, barely-pink trench would go way beyond your four cubicle walls. —Tyler McCall

Creatures of the Wind

I was immediately drawn to this look because of the proportions. The retro, mock-neck track jacket and floor-sweeping khaki coat — worn with cropped jeans that fell just-so over some python booties — made for a slim, chic silhouette that I'd really like to copy. —Alyssa Vingan Klein

There's nothing better than an easy silk dress for spring, and this one was made all the more interesting thanks to a black lace insert detail at the neckline and around the back. —Alyssa Vingan Klein

I love the neckline of this dress by Moderne, La Garonne's in-house line (which is also available in boutiques around the world). Plus, it's one of those rare pieces that works easily in both casual and dressy scenarios. —Dhani Mau

Adam Selman

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist Adam Selman has built a solid following among editors, celebrities and downtown tastemakers on account of his cheeky, retro-leaning designs, as well as his penchant for upping the sex appeal. While this ballet pink pleated skirt and orange camisole with a delicate criss-cross back does appear to be sweet, the top is printed with, well, porn. It's a combo that only Selman could pull off. —Alyssa Vingan Klein

Get ready to see all of the cool kids (including Selman super-fan, Rihanna) wearing this sexy, long-sleeved Summer Fever tee come spring. The sparkly pink miniskirt that completed the look was equally covetable, in my opinion. —Alyssa Vingan Klein

Thakoon

The pointy shoe styles at Thakoon were my favorite element of the show, but this plaid dress (or separates) is one of those throw-on-and-go classics. I love how the skirt almost looks like a shirt wrapped around the waist, but in a very feminine way. —Chantal Fernandez

This whole collection had a relaxed elegance that was super-appealing, but this dress, in two color options, was my favorite. I love how it was styled (by Danielle Nachmani) in two different ways for the show, particularly when paired with classic Adidas Gazelles. —Dhani Mau

Creatures of Comfort

Someone at the show remarked that was a variation of "Gucci green," and while I can't disagree, this silk situation also has that certain tinge of uniqueness that makes Creatures of Comfort so special. (i.e., there's a cape, you guys! A cape!) —Maura Brannigan

I noted on Twitter that this look reminded me of a country club Cool Teen™ whose otherwise faultless ensemble came somewhat undone after one too many mojitos. I should also note now that this is my dream look. What does that say about me? —Maura Brannigan

Designer Jérôme LaMaar is all about taking his South Bronx roots and adding a heavy dosage of "glam and luxe" to it. I think this army jacket embodies exactly that. While designers usually go the grunge route or keep this jacket simply fit and tailored, LaMaar lets his talents in embroidery and beading shine, which you can clearly see in this close-up shot. —Maria Bobila

Nomia

Inspired by rock climbing, designer Yara Flinn successfully stuck to Nomia's core aesthetic that her customers know and love. My favorite interpretation is this pair of slightly flared trousers with snaps that you would normally see on a pair of tearaway athletic pants. —Maria Bobila
