New York Fashion Week wrapped up last week with designers showcasing their autumn/winter 2016 collections. Being the frigid month of February, guests were covered in layers of clothing to beat the NYC snow; making the choice of footwear a difficult decision. Along with fur and textured layers, pops of colors and patterns were thrown into the mix in several designer’s collections. We found runway inspired garments in Montclair’s trendy boutiques.
Vivienne Tam’s runway featured layers of prints in both bright colored and neutral palettes. This asymmetrical decorative patterned knit cardigan from Valley Girl is great for layering. Made from polyester, the piece features a draped neckline and is a great effortless piece to throw on. Wear it with a white t-shirt and jeans for a casual look.

The collection by Demoo Parkchoonmoo was all about cozy and oversized textured layers in neural shades. We found this sleeveless knitted turtleneck by M Rena from That Little Black Dress. Made from cotton and polyester, the top features a high-low hem with slits on both side seams. Wear it with a grey knit vest and a pair of culottes.

Diane Von Furstenberg is known for her iconic printed dresses and her collection featured all things DVF. The floral maxi dress by For The Love of Lemons from Wakefield & York is romantic and whimsical.

Marc Jacob’s collection was all about over the top dark gothic inspired garments. We found this 100% silk blouse by Hoss Intropia at Le Willow 83.
