It's the second day of New York Fashion Week, and we're hitting up all the fashion shows and events and hand-picking the most beautiful and truly awesome things we see. Mother nature has thrown us a curve ball, as winter storm Nemo blasts through New York City, but fashion stops for no one! Behold, Friday's highlights:
Monika Chiang Fall 2013
1. Banana clips at Monika Chiang
We love this punky spin on a ponytail, and we're delighted to report that they're insanely easy to construct. Just apply some dry shampoo and pomade to your hair for grip and texture, and slide in an '80s-style banana clip, available for really cheap at most drugstores. So cute!
Russian fashion writer Miroslava Duma brightened our day
2. A colorful coat outside Jason Wu
Snow, sleet, and wild winds forced typically chic editors to wear sweatshirts, parkas, wellies, and yes, even Uggs. But as we were walking into the Jason Wu show we spotted a cheery colorblocked coat and cozy matching beanie that just made us smile. A closer look revealed the woman to be 27-year old Miroslava Duma, a freelance writer and former editor for Harper's Bazaar Russia who has become quite the international "It" girl. (Check out her blog, Buro 24/7.) Amongst a sea of boring black winter weather gear it's easy to understand why.
Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2012
3. This yellow dress at Rebecca Minkoff
We're seeing an abnormal amount of color on the fall runways so far, and we like it! There has been lots of rusty reds, burnt orange, burgundy, and cobalt, but this bright yellow mini dress just spoke to us. It's so basic, and nearly seamless, and the silhouette and length are just right. Think it's nothing special? Wait till the model turns around on the runway...
