For Your Next Soirée:
Florence Strapless Metallic Gown by Bronx and Banco
Sequins and metallics were a common theme across runway collections. While sequins made their debut in cocktail dresses, blazers, and even turtlenecks, we can’t get enough of this Florence strapless metallic gown by Bronx and Banco. The floor-length dress features an a-line silhouette, a strapless sweetheart neckline, and boning in the bodice.

For Casual Comfort:
SNIDEL Pleated Frills Sleeve Knit Pullover
Sheer dresses, skirts, and sleeves were amongst some of the season’s standout pieces at Fashion Week. While designers like Christian Siriano embraced sexier looks with sheer off-the-shoulder sleeves, this Pleated Frills Sleeve Knit Pullover by Snidel is perfect for more casual everyday wear. Transition your wardrobe from winter to spring with this sweater in light grey.

For Making a Statement:
Cobalt Off-The-Shoulder Draped Sleeve Mini Dress by Christian Siriano
Bright monochrome suits, blouses, and skirt sets made a statement on Fashion Week runways. If colorful, tailored pieces are the bold entrance you’ve been looking for, look no further than the Cobalt Off-The-Shoulder Draped Sleeve Mini Dress by Christian Siriano. We love the drama of the ruffle sleeves and the use of premium fabrics including Silk Faille and Wool Blend. This piece is made-to-order in New York City.
Following his studies in London under Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen, Christian Siriano launched his eponymous collection in 2008. From fantasy evening gowns and cocktail dresses to tailored sportswear, and intricately detailed shoes and accessories, Christian Siriano is known for whimsical and show-stopping design.
For Day to Night:
‘Tullius’ skirt by Altuzarra
Another Fashion Week trend that took runways by storm is the maxi skirt. Add an edge to your look with the ‘Tullius’ skirt by Altuzarra crafted in a sweeping midi silhouette from vegan leather with sharp pleats at the high-rise waist. Complete with adjustable buttons on the front, undo a button or two when day turns to night.
