When the snowstorm put its icy damper on New York Fashion Week, our first thought was: well now what do we wear? And while the photos show, snow is no match for our favorite street-style fixtures, the lesson learned here is actually quite useful as we finish out the last of the cold months. Herein find the looks worn during the height of Nemo that proved both slick in outfit appeal and in functionality. We're skipping the open-toed sandals, the impractical minidress statements, and anything else that looks great, but won't work for our wintry real-life purposes. Click through and get inspired on how to look chic — even if and when you're dressing for really bad weather.
Naomi Watts and Eva Longoria were both in a pantsuit kind of mood at a Condé Nast Traveler event in Beverly Hills, CA. But each star put her own unique spin on the menswear-inspired look. Naomi kept it tough in black leather pants, a black boyfriend blazer, and a white silky top, finishing the look with classic black pointy, low-heeled pumps. For her suited-up evening, Eva blended a boyish cut with a girlie pink hue and then completed her Boss ensemble with a contrast-collar Monika Chiang blouse, black piped Casadei pumps, and a black patent envelope clutch. Whether you identify with just one of these celeb-approved suits or both, shop our editors' picks below to get the look for yourself.
Congrats, Rita Korkounian!
Everyone else, submit your looks, and we just might feature you on POPSUGAR Fashion!
Marc Jacobs has come to be known as the ultimate showman in NYC fashion, and Fall 2013 upheld his reputation to a T. The capacity crowd entered to a glowing yellow orb at the end of the circular runway — notable for providing sepia light that rendered the chic showgoers in sepia-tinged black and white (so much for those wild colors for the street-style photographers!). The models did a full, brisk lap around the runway to start the show, all under the sepia light. After the last model exited the runway, the lighting shifted and the models came back out to be seen for the lovely, soft color palette that Jacobs picked for the season — soft moss green, pale mauve, camel, greiges. The line was filled with the very wearable — cable-knit sweaters, double-breasted coats, shirtdresses — to the very unwearable — see the model in just hot pants and gloves. Evening was particularly strong with bias-cut gowns with open backs mixed in with liquid metallic gowns that are begging to be flown out to Hollywood to the Oscars. The designer, clad in pajamas for his finale walk, created a thrilling presentation and a collection that we'll be thrilled to see in stores.
Although we love taking in the latest runway trends and spotting which famous faces are sitting front row, we are most intrigued by what happens after the shows are over. From Sarah Jessica Parker to Zoe Saldana to Chrissy Teigen to Leigh Lezark, we've spotted a slew of fashionable stars working hard, and playing harder at some of the most exclusive and well-dressed soirees. As New York Fashion Week wraps today, join us in taking a look back at the most fabulous moments captured outside the tents and after hours.

Brooklyn Decker dared to bare her midriff in a trendy crop top at Gillette's Valentine's Day event in NYC today. The actress— and former swimsuit model — got festive for the romantic holiday in a soft-pink high-waisted skirt, black d'orsay pumps, and a Jennifer Fisher vertebrae cuff but then added a bold finish with a black high-neck, sleeveless crop top by Sally LaPointe. So, take a good look at Brooklyn's black-and-pink Valentine's Day ensemble, and then tell us: is it too much skin or just right for Valentine's Day?
All the quintessential style building blocks were present at Calvin Klein's Fall '13 collection: minimalist silhouettes, impeccable tailoring, and a classic palette. But this time around, designer Francisco Costa turned up the textural intrigue tenfold, thanks to a whole lot of leather, bold geometric shapes (those belts!), and slick PVC detailing. And to top it all off, the outerwear was, in a word, gorgeous. We have a feeling front-row attendee Jessica Chastain, who has been spotted all over NYC in an amazing coat wardrobe (maybe the best ever), has her eye on a few. Take a look at the Calvin Klein Fall '13 collection now.
Isabel Marant may have launched a sneaker-wedge revolution, but Nike is taking the pumped-up look to new heights with its limited release of the Dunk Sky Hi City Pack, priced at $225 each. Inspired by five stylish metropolises from around the world — including New York, Milan, and Tokyo — you get the classic old-school streetwear silhouette of a Dunk high-top with all the luxe details of each city's iconic "personality" attached.The New York style, at far left, features a metallic reptilian-print upper with black pony-hair panels and a patent leather Swoosh logo — a tribute to the New Yorker's signature all-black getup. Meanwhile, the London style boasts vibrant red plaid and green patent leather; the Milan iteration pays homage to its leather-crafting and luggage-making heritage with a crocodile-embossed upper; the Paris style looks to its romantic urban roots with a pale tweed-and-leather combo; and the Tokyo reveals itself as a city (or in this case, a shoe) driven by high shine and an insatiable desire for high tech via gorgeous iridescent accents.
Last night at the Gents launch party at the Gramercy Park Hotel, Zoe Saldana looked impeccably chic in a sporty black lace top, proving that sweatshirts aren't solely for lounging at home. The actress then completed her all-black ensemble with cropped trousers and cutout booties. Zoe's latest look inspired us to go on the hunt for equally stylish lace sweatshirts that we can incorporate into our daytime and nighttime outfits. Shop our picks below, but first, check out some ideas on how to dress your lace sweatshirt up.
- Pick a lace sweatshirt in a dark hue (black, navy, dark gray) to help give off a dressier vibe.
- To fancy up a light-colored lace sweatshirt, we recommend pairing it with leather pants or fancy trousers.
- You can sport your sweatshirt with your favorite denim (boyfriend, skinny, wide-leg), then kick things up with fancy heels and sparkly baubles.
- An easy way to punch up your lace sweatshirt is to match it up with a pair of colored jeans.
