Aussie-import Zimmermann may be made (almost) exclusively for model bodies, but that won't stop me from dreaming of this sheer plaid dress and lace-up boot combo. — Tyler McCall

I'm very pleased that Club Monaco's fall 2016 collection — the first that the retailer has shown on the NYFW schedule — is "see now, buy now," as I plan on scooping up this two-piece tasseled look before I head to Paris for the shows. It's transitional and adorable. —Alyssa Vingan Klein

Tanya Taylor

This is definitely my favorite Tanya Taylor collection yet, and so many looks were standouts thanks to the impressive and delightful amounts of ruffles, tassels, fringe, embroidery and sequins. I love the way the abstract flowers wrap around this dress. —Chantal Fernandez

It was nearly impossible to pick a favorite from Tanya Taylor's sweet, colorful offering. But this look appealed to me on every level, from cool blue palette, to the short hemline, to the fun, embellished slides. —Dhani Mau

Jason Wu

Perhaps I am biased because Julia Nobis is one of my favorite models, but watching this acid yellow gown — with its sporty halter neck and side cut-outs — float down the runway was the highlight of the colorful, floral-heavy show for me. —Alyssa Vingan Klein

The countdown is on until one of Jason Wu's lovely muses wears this nude gown, completely covered with neon flower appliqués, on the red carpet. (Team Fashionista's placing its bets that Diane Kruger will get first dibs.) —Alyssa Vingan Klein

Frame continues to build out its non-denim offerings through sleek suits, classic shirts and soft dresses, but my favorite look from its spring collection is a pair of white denim overalls. Not only are they striped (!), but the top is actually separate from the pants. The styling options boggle my mind. —Chantal Fernandez

Monse

Wow, the Monse show was my favorite so far. Each look built on each other, in both in silhouette and material, culminating in dense, striped, sequined separates at the finale that I can't wait to see on red carpets. This skirt was my top pick because of the mustard yellow hue and the way it moved on the runway. —Chantal Fernandez

In addition to just making for a cool runway moment, these twins best embodied the Monse girl, who Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia very successfully solidified during this show... and who I kinda want to be. —Dhani Mau

Picking just one look was tricky — like Chantal, Monse has been my favorite show so far — but I kept coming back to this belted top and sequined short combo. It should be no surprise that I have a certain penchant for glittery things (see: ankle boots, etc.), but it's rare to see metallics so well done in this shade of orange. The drapey, asymmetrical blouse is easily the most recognizable signature of the Monse girl. —Maura Brannigan

Misha Collection

I loved this collection, but this look specifically — maybe because it seemed almost like a costume, giving me hardcore Patrick Bateman/"American Psycho" vibes. Those leather gloves! That bright, vibrant shade of red! You like Huey Lewis and the News? —Maura Brannigan

Cushnie et Ochs

There's nothing better than a good jumpsuit in my eyes, and this tawny-colored one-piece got the job done. I loved the deep neckline and asymmetrical shoulder straps, and the silk pant legs looked almost regal as they came down the runway. I'd kill to wear this on a red carpet sometime, should that opportunity ever present itself. (LOL.) —Maura Brannigan

Baja East

While I'll always be a fan of camo print, I love Baja East's new take on the motif for spring. The designer duo collaborated with Illumination Entertainment, using the film "Minions" as inspiration — specifically a scene when the yellow characters are covered in palm leaves. I also like the idea of creating pinstripe pieces in a dark green, which makes the pattern come off a little less corporate than what you'd normally see in black or dark blue. —Maria Bobila

Area

Designers Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk always manage to take simple silhouettes and add their own cool spin to it, like this long button-down dress with a spotty print. I wouldn't be surprised if I saw a number of city girls sporting this look next spring. Plus, the bright blue eyeshadow is such a fun touch. —Maria Bobila

Area RS17 0015.jpg

I've seen a number of all-silver looks during NYFW, but this short croc-embossed version — a freakum' dress, if you will is one of my favorites so far. I love it paired with clear lucite jewelry, which you can "see now, buy now," and again, the fun bright blue eyeshadow. —Maria Bobila

Novis

Novis always has some of the best art-inspired prints and color combinations of New York Fashion Week. I love the vintage-inspired silhouette of this dress; I'd wear it in a heartbeat. —Dhani
