We only have two more days of New York Fashion Week left — tear. But let's focus on the positive; let's let our fashionable endorphins go wild with today's top 10 looks. They're impeccably chic, slightly '70s-inspired, fresh, and so waiting to be worn. I'm talking about hot pink pants, luxe fur details, chic lace sleeves, and ethnic prints. Michael Kors, Christian Cota, Yigal Azrouel, and Oscar de la Renta are just some of the designers who wowed us on day seven. Click through to see their looks.
Nine a.m. was an early wake-up call for Yigal Azrouel's Fall 2011 showing, but those who made it were given a instant jolt of energy thanks to the designer's cool and colorful menswear inspired collection. The line was all about "celebrating the strength and power of artistic femininity," which Azrouel expertly exemplified through wool cropped boy pants, oversize knit "tail" tops, pleated bib blouses, and covetable coats. Bright splashes of color — we especially loved the bright mandarin orange and cobalt blue — were tempered with neutral hues giving us just the right amount of pop for Fall. There were also details, like tuxedo stripes, leather trim, and cute custom bow-ties, which furthered the boyish theme. The outwear was also a force to be reckoned with: classic herringbone coats, leather and fur jackets, and streamlined oversize blazer toppers will be chic and cozy options come next Fall. To see our video of the full runway, check out FabSugarTV.
- Trends: Menswear, tuxedo stripes, bright color.
- Colors: Jade green, mandarin orange, salmon, cobalt, gray.
- Key Looks: Cobalt pants and oversize tweed coat, mandarin orange pieces.
- Accessories: Bow-ties, skinny belts, thin headbands, suede wedge boots.
- Who Would Wear It: Boyish cuties like Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth, and Thandie Newton.
After an amazing three decades in fashion, Michael Kors knows a thing or two about what women want when it comes to their wardrobes. At his Fall 2011 show, we went behind the scenes with the iconic designer who shared his favorite pieces from the recent collection – all which strike the perfect, signature balance between sexy and comfortable. Kors went on to describe how this season was inspired by all his favorite looks from decades past including 70s decadence, 80s athleticsim, and the simplicity of the ‘90s. Watch our video to get the full inside scoop, and don’t forget to check out the full runway here on FabSugarTV.

Marios Schwab's third collection for Halston was a direct reference to the '70s. "The Halston girl is a temptress," said Schwab, who referenced Lauren Hutton's character in American Gigolo as his inspiration. The presentation, which took place last night at Cedar Lake, had models set up on pedestals wearing an array of gowns and dresses fitting for a glamorous party at Studio 54. Fluid Grecian-inspired chiffon gowns, pleated and draped cocktail dresses, and even sequined glow-in-the-dark creations — the lights dimmed down every 10 minutes to show off the display — were all present and dipped in warm and cool neutral hues. However, it was Schwab's daywear selection that really stood out amongst the crowd, most notably, a knotted shirtdress made in supple brown leather. Schwab has to head back to London to present his namesake collection, but not before indulging in a "a couple of cocktails" to celebrate the Halston collection. And what exactly will he be drinking to toast the night? "I like the mixed berry kind," said Schwab.
- Trends: '70s glamour.
- Colors: White, melon green, olive, and brown.
- Key Looks: Knotted brown leather shirtdress.
- Accessories: Drop-front booties, paneled sandals.
- Who Would Wear It: The ultimate Studio 54 gal.
Bold, ethnic-inspired prints that meld seamlessly with refined silhouettes and tailored sheath dresses — it's how Oscar de la Renta sees the world this Fall. A meeting of striking patterns and patchwork on full-length coats and shorter jackets, then Oscar's laydylike pieces and showstoppers — a tweed skirt suit, a metallic pencil, and later, the awards show-worthy gowns. Nearly every look gets a dose of Fall fur in a cozy snood or hat, adding luxury to the sophisticated looks. Through the streamlined silhouettes, the classic construction, there's the assurance that these Oscar pieces — like any of the designer's collections — won't lose their luxe after time; you could see yourself in that same metallic tweed coat running about town now, then years from now. See the Fall runway collection on FabSugarTV.
Style icon Olivia Palermo looked gorgeous at the Fall 2011 Tibi runway show in NYC. Her standout pieces were her beaded top and gradient skirt — both by Tibi — which looked great paired with the fur vest and Mango belt. Red nails and leopard booties finished it all off. Shop it all here.
