If I ever find myself a) having successfully completed a decade of Pilates, and b) needing to make a red carpet appearance, I'll absolutely try and get my hands on this look first. I love how the crinkled silk gives the semi-formal suit an informal feel, while the bra top gives it a definite edge. —Maura Brannigan

This dress was one of the very first pieces to come down the runway, and it left a lasting impression on me through all of Sunday and even into Monday. The combination of crushed velvet and silken pleats worked incredibly (and perhaps, unexpectedly) well together, and the bra-inspired bodice gave the otherwise feminine the piece a sporty touch. —Maura Brannigan

The models, whom Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein heckled as they walked along the stage, looked great; but I honestly thought Carrie looked the best — and the most normal — in this black dress and boots. —Dhani Mau

J.Crew

Because a girl's gotta get herself a trusty, well-cut Canadian tuxedo, plain and simple. Just ask Justin Trudeau. —Maura Brannigan

I couldn't resist throwing this look in here, too, if only because it's a subtle variation of one of my personal favorite combinations: Hawaiian shirts, cropped jeans and loafers. How Gucci did it — as in, Alessandro Michele-inspired — was to add a pair of geeky white socks, which gives the whole thing a bit more seasonal staying power. —Maura Brannigan

Here's a Perfect Summer Dress from Timo Weiland's latest offering. A dress I really could have used last week. —Dhani Mau

Hood by Air

Leave it to Hood by Air's Shayne Oliver to give two decidedly preppy staples — the polo knit and pleated skirt — some edge while still being wearable. I'm hoping to see those steel-toe boots by Frye make a few street style roundups next year, too. —Maria Bobila

Hood by Air's Pitti Uomo appearance in 2015 is still rubbing off on the brand, as Oliver and his team continue to focus on tailoring. Though I loved their renditions of the classic white button-down (emblazoned with signature HBA text), the show's final look, a jumpsuit with full-length zippers, was my favorite. —Maria Bobila

Sies Marjan

Sies Marjan's sophomore collection was a standout this week for its colors — which I'm going to call approachable neons — and its modern takes on familiar silhouettes, like this chic slip dress in the best shade of pink. —Dhani Mau

I was also obsessed with this iridescent, wraparound top, which reminded me of sand art. It was so pretty as the light hit it, and ties in the back in a very chic way. —Dhani Mau

Tome

The entire collection was truly fantastic, but this modern, harlequin-style checkered print was a personal favorite. I loved the way this tiered shirt popped against the dark green/blue fluid silky skirt. — Chantal Fernandez

Tome's spring collection was beautiful enough on its own, but the casting took it to a completely different level. I loved the beautiful layering, like this knit over a silky ruffled top. —Tyler McCall

Pyer Moss

While I do love the "Please speak only to my attorney" shirt designer Kerby Jean-Raymond wore at the Pyer Moss show, this pair of paper-bag waist-ish pants stood out to me because they look both sharp and cozy at the same time. I love the combination of solid panels and stripes with the grey tapered waist. —Chantal Fernandez

Prabal Gurung

Here was another pink moment that I swooned over like the millennial that I am. The soft color is perfect for such a powerful dress. —Dhani Mau

Tracy Reese

Where do you even begin to talk about Tracy Reese's beautiful show? The casting (including "SNL"'s Sasheer Zamata) was truly diverse, and the setting was lovely. But of course, the reason we came was the clothes, and from poppy pinks and reds to plenty of killer prints, there was something in here for just about everyone. —Tyler McCall

Jenny Packham

Obviously, Jenny Packham knows her way around an incredibly pretty, princess (or Duchess)-ready red carpet gown. But when this floaty day dress came down the runway, I had instant visions of a road trip to Mexico, with the top down and Fleetwood Mac blasting — much more realistic for my own, non-Duchess life. —Tyler McCall
