While we are getting ready to change into our favorite fall sweaters, New York is spicing things showing off what will be hot this upcoming Spring and Summer during New York Fashion week Sep. 5 through Sep. 12.
Transparent, bright colors and florals will be the way to go Spring 2014.
As shown in day five of NYFW flats and sandals will be the hot styles for footwear.
Celebrities attending left and right not only because of all the freebies they get, but also to get a glimpse on what they will be wearing this upcoming spring.
Stars such as Jessica Alba, Kanye West, Anna Sophia, Audrey Kitchings, Dita Von Teese, the Beckhams, Taylor Momsen and many more were spotted enjoying the show.
As college students, you might not have the money to spend on the same designer clothes these stars have, but that does not mean you have to settle for a less stylish attire.
Fashion week is perfect for inspiration.
Find your favorite looks and let them be your pointers on to what you will be looking for at your favorite affordable retailers.
Some retailers such as Forever 21, Mod Cloth, H&M, PacSun, Tilly’s, Papaya, Target, and Charlotte Russe are notorious for their affordable items, which resemble those seen on the runway.
While some collections were complex, Victoria Beckham’s collection screamed simplicity.
Simplicity is what made it fabulous and unique; still maintaining the sophisticated style with that youthful edge Mrs. Beckham is famous for.
Beckham’s signature looks resemble those of Alexander Wang, but it is not to be confused with Alexander Wang’s design.
While both had incredible designs Wang had a more playful look while Beckham’s was more sophisticated.
At the other end of the spiral there was Betsey Johnson who showed of the punk and spunky side of fashion.
This collection was pure bubblegum glitz, being that the models walked the runway with glorious pink hair and everything was a fierce pastel pink.
Remember being fashionable does not equal a hungry wallet.
Be smart with your purchases to have enough money to go out and show off your style.
