One of my favorite times of year is upon us – NYFW! Ever since I can remember, I have combed the runway section of Vogue.com to sort through each collection/show every season. I find my favorites, take notes, and try to apply what I see into my wardrobe when I can. 

Below are my three favorite shows this year. Not only did I put up my favorite looks, I also found ways for our readers to shop them along with a few dupes.

Okay so I have to admit, I did not know about this designer until I combed through the Vogue Runway shows, but I instantly fell in love. First off, I love the way the show was inclusive of all sizes, ages, and ethnicities. That is a serious plus for me. But what really drew me to this collection was the way it is effortlessly cool. You can wear any piece with a simple flat or boot and look stunning without having to try. 

After I discovered Eckhaus Latta, I quickly googled and it turns out his pieces are somewhat affordable (Inner scream YAAASS!). Also, this collection was one of Vogue’s highest rated for NYFW. Love love everything and apparently so does Anna Wintour. 

Below are a few affordable pieces I found from his previous collections. 




Anna Sui has always been a 16th&B favorite. Each season she creates the most romantic pieces a girl can dream of. Last season was all about velvet while this time around it is all about sheer fabrics and floral prints. Effortlessly tying in layers such as kimonos and jackets with flowing dresses is what sets her apart each year.

Below, I have found some of my favorite pieces from her NYFW Fall 2017 collection and a couple dupes for her current NYFW Spring 2018 collection.  



With uniform-like pieces that can be worn day to night, this chic and simplistic collection is one of the Row’s best so far. This line is very simple, classic, and screams norm-core at its finest. 

Who knew monochromatic looks could be so stunning? If you are not familiar with the Row, it is the fashion label created by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. It is versatile and primarily seen as day wear. It also is insanely expensive. However, do not fear! Below I found my favorite Row pieces along with plenty of very affordable dupes.
