We've seen the collections, picked up the trends, and now it's time to decide just what we'll be wearing from the runways. There were major themes — layering, minimalism, and modern tribal among them — but how do those big ideas apply to you? We've sifted through all the looks, and here are our top 15 most chic and wearable trends coming from New York Fashion Week.
The longer-hemline trend is staying put for now, but if demure isn't your thing, follow Kate Bosworth's lead. The actress offers a new way to rock the trend by pairing a cropped leather tank with her knee-length black skirt. All you need to re-create the look is a black leather top — tee, tank, or cropped, as long as it's leather — and some killer heels. While your skirt will be saying lady, your upper half will be screaming badass! Click to shop the look.
We absolutely love the look and feel of Winter vests. They're a supremely functional layering piece that can be paired with everything from long dresses to jeans and sweaters, plus they work in Spring and Fall, too. On the Fall 2010 runway, Winter vests were styled so fashionably, they defined the outfit, and between shearling, faux fur, real fur, leather, and puffers, there are more than a few ways to wear the look. That said, we've helped narrow it down with 15 of our favorites; now it's up to you to get one and style it out your way.
You've already chosen your favorite online shopping destination and footwear designer, and now it's time to vote on the trend that took the fashion world by storm this year. Longer hemlines brought the ladylike look into the forefront, camel made a comeback, leopard-print was spotted everywhere, we looked rocker-chic in luxe leather, and military-inspired pieces had us standing at attention. So which trend took over your closet? Cast your vote now!

Leather tops have become a hot ticket item this season thanks to Phoebe Philo at Celine, Jenni Kayne, Derek Lam, and Jason Wu. Try the look out with neutral hues and bold accessories for a minimal vibe, or take it up a notch with leather leggings and moto boots. Either way, our slick picks — ranging from a faux leather wrap vest to a simple caramel-hued tee — from Maje, MM Couture, and Urban Outfitters — will help you get there.

I'm admittedly a little leather obsessed this season, but obviously with good reason. Behold Alice + Olivia's Juliana Velvet and Leather Dress ($440) screaming Fall flirt and city sophisticate all at once. I could rationalize the price, promising to wear it religiously till Spring, but really, it's no use. The only thing left to do is to find a worthy, less-pricey alternative.
