Gorgeous clothes, tons of festivities, star sightings city-wide — what’s not to love about Fashion Week? Well, the prices, for one thing. We might fall madly in love with a dress right off the runway, but we’d be mad to shell out $3,000 for it, no? That’s why we’ve taken to the Internet in search of our favorite catwalk trends on a waaaaaay more reasonable budget.
Good news! Both stripes and a black and white color palette will still be on trend next spring, if this look from Whit’s S/S 2014 collection is any indication. Chances are you can get this look from pieces you already have in your closet — or you can snag it with one or all of these pieces for under $75 each. Get the deets after the jump! Keep reading »
Oh, New York Fashion Week. I do love all of the out-of-the-box, cutting-edge styles, but I’m fairly confident … wait … yep, I have both of these outfits. They’re hanging on the back of my bathroom door next to my loofah and soap-on-a-rope.

Up first: Rachel Comey, who created a collection exuding her signature downtown cool vibe.

New York Fashion Week is underway, and it seems that people are feeling a bit … lukewarm about it. Hey, the times are changing, and so is the face of one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. With up-to-the-minute news (and clothes) available on the Internet at every turn, is New York Fashion Week losing its relevance? Could it be on its way to a demise, or at least a very heavy change of pace? And would that necessarily be a bad thing?
Fashion Week, which has made its home at Lincoln Center these past few years, has been a staple of the industry for decades. In the last several years, the fashion world has been forced to accommodate the addition of the likes of twitter, tumblr, street style blogs, and instant online shopping to the action. While the internet can be a huge advantage to the industry, the exclusive air of seeing NYFW shows in person is losing some of its cachet.
