Altuzarra

When describing what I loved about the rich, detailed Altuzarra show to my Fashionista colleagues, the following came out of my mouth: "Imagine if Blair Waldorf got really into BMX." The juxtaposition of super-luxe materials, prim silhouettes and modern elements (like biker pants and long leather gloves with racing stripes) really did it for me, and this purple velvet embroidered party dress paired with lace-up combat boots is my dream evening ensemble. —Alyssa Vingan Klein

Altuzarra's finale dresses are always a New York Fashion Week highlight, and the Fall 2017 series was no exception. This one closed the show, and with its stunning scarlet hue, sparkling floral embroidery and pearls lining both the collar and hem, I truly couldn't look away. —Alyssa Vingan Klein

Diane von Furstenberg

Jonathan Saunders continues to knock things out of the park at DvF. For Fall 2017, he played with electric colors, from cerulean blues and hot pinks to hothouse yellows and traffic cone oranges, but it never felt overwhelming thanks to the luxe fabrics and the rich textures. The chubby faux furs are bound to be sellouts come fall. —Tyler McCall

Elizabeth Kennedy

We've been following Elizabeth Kennedy's design career since she made her New York Fashion Week debut last February, and her presentations — stocked with beautiful, impeccable eveningwear — have been a NYFW highlight ever since. While the birds-of-paradise gowns were a sight to be seen, it was this sleek, sexy tuxedo (complete with a bird pin at the sternum) that left me wanting it wear it every dang day. —Maura Brannigan

Gypsy Sport

This marked my first time at a Gypsy Sport show, and it was as vibrant and dynamic as I expected, coming complete with live drummers and a rainy day soundtrack. I was into this color scheme and tie-dye combo, plus the shin-high socks. There's lots going on, but the look was all the better for it. —Maura Brannigan

If designer Rio Uribe offered see-now, buy-now with his fall 2017 collection, the leather coat and side-striped pants would instantly be snapped up by yours truly, especially since the day of his show welcomed a wintery mix of weather. —Maria Bobila

J.Crew

If there's one element of J.Crew's presentations (and lookbooks and catalogs and Instagram imagery) that I most admire, it's the styling. And what's cooler than this oversize suit with the Converse and baseball cap? (I'm always down for the sneaks, but let's switch up the Yankees logo to a Cubs one, shall we?) —Maura Brannigan

Jenny Packham

Brit designer and red carpet favorite Jenny Packham took inspiration from "the idiosyncrasies and clichés" of British identity for fall 2017. Or, what I like to think — thanks to my NYFW commute binge of political podcasts (#PodSaveAmerica) — a sartorial deep dive into BREXIT with references to the colonial days of the Raj, Carnaby Street mod, "The Crown" (including a T-shirt emblazoned with Queen Elizabeth II's fave canine, a Corgi), Malcolm McLaren punk, lots of Kate Middleton-bait and a fair amount of tartan. So what's the word on the second Scottish referendum? —Fawnia Soo Hoo

Prabal Gurung

Prabal Gurung's politically minded collection was wonderful for so many reasons, but his gorgeous designs were still at the center. I've never seen anyone work with fur the way he does, and this patchwork coat looked so soft I want to sleep in it. —Tyler McCall

Sies Marjan

We've been quick to fawn over Sies Marjan since designer Sander Lak presented the label's first-ever show at New York Fashion Week last February. It's landed itself a spot in our favorite collections for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017, and with this Fall 2017 masterpiece, I certainly see the trend continuing. The color palette was dreamy and subdued, like tufts of cotton candy; this multidimensional look was such a muted mint green, it was almost closer to cream. Almost. —Maura Brannigan

How good, right?! This layered pink situation was one of the brightest looks of the lineup, and it lit up the runway as it came down. Even if you don't enjoy pink as much as I might, you have to see the universal apparel of this particular pink. —Maura Brannigan

Vaquera

Vaquera sent a host of wacky looks down the runway, from what was essentially an oversize Tiffany & Co. bag worn as a backless dress to a chef's costume with exaggerated proportions. This silk pajama and pearl chain combo, however, felt both funky and actually wearable in a way I dig. —Whitney Bauck

Victoria Beckham

Despite being rather covered up, everything about this Victoria Beckham collection felt so sexy to me. I particularly loved this knit dress: The paneling was so flattering, and the full-length leather gloves and boots took things to a whole new level. —Tyler McCall

Public School

I've been seeing this gray plaid pattern so much during New York Fashion Week, but mostly in the form of workwear-inspired pieces, like boxy blazers and tailored trousers. This pleated midi skirt from Public School feels more modern and wearable, and I love how it's paired with a layered hoodie. —Maria Bobila

Misbhv

Business on the outside, party on the inside. The slouchy, pleated Misbhv coat is already on my fall wardrobe wish list and the turtleneck, shiny skirt and thigh-high boots combo is my dream rave outfit. Weekend come soon please. —Maria Bobila

Sandy Liang

I have yet to find a jumpsuit that I really would wear on the reg but Sandy Liang's rendition in a sturdy dark denim has finally convinced me. Plus, I love how she's applied her signature furry accents to sporty outerwear this time around. —Maria Bobila
