In case you missed Part One, go ahead and catch up here. Part Two will be covering the second half of NYFW that lasted from 9/11 – 9/15. From Victoria Beckham to Marchesa, from lazy girl chic to ball gowns and from leather to tulle, we’ve got you covered girl.
SAS: I wasn’t crazy about Posh’s line this season (way too much velvet for my personal taste) but I did really enjoy this slouchy lazy girl look. Long live the lazy girl.
KJS: Okay, yes, SAS is right – there was a whole lotta velvet in this line. But honestly, I didn’t have a huge problem with the velvet (although I didn’t like much of the line.) #tbt to when I was 8 and had a crushed velvet dress in this exact color.
SAS: ERIN FETHERSTON SERVED GLITTER GODDESS REALNESS. Also can we have a moment of silence to worship that glitter jumpsuit please and thank you.
KJS: I imagine this is what a modern-day Greek goddess’s wardrobe would look like.
KJS: I’m usually not a huge fan of J. Crew and the stuffy/preppy feel they sometimes can have, but this collection made me so happy. They took their signature prep and added some fun with pom-poms, bright colors, and fun layering ideas that mix casual with classy.
SAS: Between Kaitlin and I, I think we have half the Packham collection as favorites. But I mean just LOOK AT THESE GOWNS. Jenny is a known favorite of actual princess Kate Middleton and it’s no surprise why. The soft shapes that accentuate the waist are super flattering and the detailing is flawless.
KJS: I’m not sorry about choosing a million of these dresses as my favorites. I would literally wear the whole collection every day and feel like a boss bitch (but still a princess) while doing it. Kate Middleton, wanna pass me your Jenny Packham hand-me-downs?
SAS: Jewel tones are back yet again. These dresses are all delicate, soft and lacking a ton of structure which I am loving. Look 33 has to be my favorite purely for that dress looking like it fell straight out of the night sky.
KJS: Is that the galaxy on dress 33?
SAS: Carolina Herrera never fails to disappoint with her gowns. Always dramatic, always gorgeous. My favorites in this collection were shockingly the darker toned gowns, my HG being Look 36. Have you ever seen a more perfect LBD? I think not.
KJS: Both of these LBDs are perfection. And look 5?! That metallic skirt?! I cannot.
SAS: Oscar de la Renta is a LEGEND. Every collection brings something fresh and new to the table and this is no exception. The first few looks could easily be seen as casual modern bridal looks while the rest of the collection contains insanely beautiful dresses. Fringe, embroidery, metallics, volume; this one has it all.
KJS: Oscar de la Renta is definitely a LEGEND (in all caps, because there is no other way to say it.) I love the entire collection, but I really love look 32 because it screams Gatsby. There were a few flapper-inspired dresses in this line and I’m living for all of them. I’ll forever be pretending I’m living in the roaring 20s.
SAS: I see Pantone colors of the yeeeeear. I live and die for the blush pink tone in Look 19. Gimmie.
KJS: I follow Zac Posen on Instagram (go check him out), so I’ve been watching his getting-ready-for-NYFW process for a while and I’m in love with him. I want him to be my BFF. I’d wear his dresses every day and worship the ground he walks on.
SAS: Tory Burch went with a lot of bright colors (as per usual) but this orange is my absolute favorite. Look 32 is the definition of a house dress and I LOVE IT. Also the patterned blazer in Look 36 is incredible.
KJS: This high-low top with the beading is everything. I wish I could show you a video of it while it moves, because it’s really magical looking.
KJS: THOSE SLEEVES ON THE RED DRESS. That little sweetheart neckline and structured sleeve is just electric. The whole dress is electric.
SAS: Look 13 looks straight out of a Stevie Nicks music video and I NEED IT. Also loving the deep yet bright red of Look 20 and all of the different textures that are playing around in Look 29.
KJS: I am obsessed with every piece in this collection. Especially Looks 2 and 4 with their sparkle embellishments and dreamy fabrics. Every gown here is fit for a princess thanks to the embroidery and soft color palette. I’m obviously a big fan of the chiffon trend that filled this entire fashion week.
SAS: OH GOD DO I LOVE MONIQUE LHUILLIER. The beading, the sparkle, the tulle, it’s all a dream. My favorite favorites would have to be both Looks 20 and 23 because of the metal beading around the neck and shoulders. It gives weight to both gowns and lets them be both feminine and bad ass.
SAS: Reem Acra is another Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, Jenny Packman-ish line (can you tell I have a type?) and this season delivered. The high low cut of Look 23 makes me want to go dancing and the blush tone of 30 is STUNNING.
KJS: ALRIGHT ACRA, I see you. I didn’t know much about Reem Acra before this season, but I fell in love. The gowns are similar to Monique Lhuillier but with a bit more edge. Sold.
SAS: I wasn’t a fan of this line much and mostly pulled this look for the hair and makeup which I was OBSESSED WITH. I love red/terracotta/pinky eyes and Anna Sui’s models nailed it.
KJS: I’ve been waiting for the ankle socks and heels look to be in. TA-DA, it’s here!
KJS: Just looking at this collection makes me cry. Honestly, tears in my eyes as we speak. These gowns are classically pretty, full of pastel pinks, iridescent shimmers, and femininity. I feel like Blair Waldorf would wear look 11 (with possibly some gloves or something). And anything Blair Waldorf would wear, I will wear. #WWBWD
SAS: It has been a running joke for a few years now that when I die I don’t want anyone to spend money on my funeral, I want all the money to go to buying a Marchesa gown to be buried in so I can arrive in the afterlife looking like a goddess. Every single season Marchesa leaves me breathless and just like seasons before, I couldn’t pick just one favorite. This line is all about the technicolor iridescent rainbow theme which feels so fresh and new compared to the other lines. You’ve got tulle, you’ve got volume, you’ve got embroidery and you’ve got CAPES I mean what more can you ask for?
That wraps up NYFW SS17! We’ll see you back here next week for our next recap from across the pond in London.
