Season after season, New York Fashion Week comes at us as a week-long glimmering parade of ready-to-wear and, frankly, what-we're-more-than-ready-to-wear. Fashion! It's just too good! But of course, all that sartorial goodness had to come from somewhere. And us being the true journalists we are, we set out to find out what inspired this season's roster of fashion designers. From an image snapped from an Uber to a daydream of a '70s beach vacation, scroll through to see what inspired designers and their upcoming spring/summer 2018 collections (and ICYMI, see what inspired designers last season, too).
With fall just around the corner, we can’t help but to gear up for the chilly weather and incoming onslaught of covetable fashion trend after fashion trend after fashion trend—especially now with New York Fashion Week in full swing, too. But, you know, all that shopping can really put a damper on a girl (and her wallet). So this is where we come in: Below, we’ve rounded up five major trends for this upcoming season and some steal and splurge options so you can shop them just the way you like it. Maybe you’re looking to save this season, or maybe you’re feeling those #treatyoself vibes (after all, Mercury is still in retrograde). Whichever the M.O., we’re sure you’ll find something worth adding to cart, below.
Super moms, this one goes out to you. No, it’s not Mother's Day. What it is, however, is back-to-school season—and we can’t possibly thank you enough. From getting the kids up, dressed, fed, and onto the bus by 7 a.m. to helping them out with that big social studies project to having genuine interest in those PTA meetings and everything in between—moms, how do you do it? If we had to guess, we’d call it maternal instinct or just general badassery (but those are just one and the same, am I right?). Whatever your fuel may be, we’re proud of you and are totally here to help up your super mom game. VIDEO: 6 Investment Pieces Every Woman Should Own [brightcove:5542560482001 player_1] Ahead, you’ll find five fashion essentials every super mom should own—aka must-haves that are as functional as they are chic. From actually comfortable flats to the one outfit-making accessory for rushed mornings, shop our picks below and get ready to ace this back-to-school season.

Hello. Yes. T. Swift is back (insert Titanic gif of old Rose saying, “It’s been 84 years…” here). Following an Internet-breaking social media blackout (and then, three days later, cryptic snake video after snake videoafter snake video), the Swizzle has returned with an NBD announcement: She's dropping a new single tomorrow! And also, in chiller news, she has a NEW ALBUM COMING OUT IN NOVEMBER, OMG. (But really though, it’s chill.) Of course, all of this couldn’t have happened without a complete brand overhaul. Aside from the glitchy snake videos, Taylor also posted a long awaited selfie drenched in punk-rock vibes. Mind you—this isn’t Glam Punk Taylor Swift circa Met Gala 2016 (aka Jenny Humphrey in Season 3 of Gossip Girl). No. This is lighter. Breezier, if you will. Taylor sits nice and pretty in her latest ‘gram, wearing a distressed sweater and just a simple chain choker necklace, which has us thinking: Is this the new wave of punk? A pared-down, no-fuss, clean rock aesthetic? RELATED: 100 Reasons Why Taylor Swift Is a Street Style Pro Suddenly we’re seeing plaid skorts and alternative knit sweaters, high-shine jewelry and boy-borrowed trousers, velvet reds and lots of polished snakeskin and snake motifs (obvi). If you’re seeing that, too, well we’re here to indulge you. Scroll through to shop key pieces inspired by this new look and make way for #LitePunkTSwift2k17.
Fine. Call it a “shopping addiction,” or, “the innate inability to say no.” We love to shop, we’re really great shoppers, and we’ll never, ever stop shopping (sorry, bank accounts). As InStyle editors, it’s our job to bring you the best of the best in fashion, beauty, home, etc., and that requires us to keep tabs on the ever-evolving market. So, just call our frequent shopping habits “research,” thank you very much. Every month, we’re rounding up what we bought (and swear by) the previous month so that you can get in on the goodies, too. From affordable, luxe-looking flats to a game-changing skincare must-have, here are 21 items we’re proud to have purchased this past July.
