New York Fashion Week came to a close last Thursday, and to say that it was an exciting season would be the understatement of the year. I've always preferred the spring shows probably because I grew up in a climate that rarely went lower than 80 degrees year-round and I'd much rather wear a light summery dress than an oversized sweater any day. But this season might have converted me into an autumn. Many of the designers showed an array of colors from all sections of the rainbow while others chose to focus on all the fabulous shades of grey and black that exist. Here I chose my top dozen looks from the season, with a complete list of the lineup after the jump. Overall though, I think the designers showed a continuation of truly wearable, flattering separates along with the injection of unique, special pieces to update even the most basic of wardrobes. File as next autumn.
