Fashion month is one of our favorite times of year (after summer, that is!). Not only do we get a sneak peak of all those to-die-for pieces to come, but there鈥檚 also plenty of outfit inspo聽thanks to the crowd of fashion insiders strutting their stuff on some of the globe鈥檚 most stylish city streets. New York kicked off a month-long sartorial extravaganza with its fair share of chic ensembles. From hard-as-nails accessories to bold prints and sporty separates, here are just a handful of the many looks that caught our attention this past week.


1. @alealimay: Over the last few seasons, we鈥檝e seen fashion-set getups become a whole lot more laid back. And while we always look forward to those over-the-top ensembles (the wackier the better, in our opinion), we鈥檙e digging this more off-duty聽approach. Aleali鈥榮 rad聽athletic outfit proves that sometimes less really is more. (via @alealimay)


2. @candicelake: It might be September, but that doesn鈥檛 mean we鈥檙e ready to let go of the bright colors and easy, breezy silhouettes associated with summer. It looks like Candice Lake isn鈥檛 either. She hit the Big Apple streets in vibrant wide-leg trousers 鈥 a must for fall 鈥 and a simple off-the-shoulder top, totally nailing that pre-fall style. (via @candicelake)


3. @peaceloveshea: Coordinating with your fellow blogger bestie is most definitely a thing come fashion week. Peace Love Shea鈥檚 Shea Marie and fashion partner in crime Caroline Vreeland聽put a whole new twist on the idea with friendship bracelet-inspired moto jackets. Saying we鈥檙e a little obsessed would be an understatement. (via @peaceloveshea)


4. @jxxsy: No fashion week is complete without a few mismatched patterns,聽and this season definitely didn鈥檛 disappoint. Vintage aficionado Natalie Joos of Tales of Endearment聽wowed us with an eye-catching stripe and checkered combo. (via @jxxsy)


5. @margaret_zhang: Photographer, blogger聽and law student聽Margaret Zhang took three of fall鈥檚 biggest trends 鈥 Victorian tops, suede everything and wide-leg trousers 鈥 and combined them into one crazy-awesome outfit. Unexpected and ahead-of-the-curve, this is one look we鈥檙e dying to try. (via @margaret_zhang)


6. @susiebubble: With bright, bold and totally unique聽getups like these, it鈥檚 no wonder Susie Lau聽of the blog Style Bubble is one of our favorite fashion-week bloggers. A geometric print and faux fur topper give this classic A-line dress a modern feel, while metallic pointed-toe loafers inject a slight androgynous edge. (via @susiebubble)


7. @chroniclesofher_: Monochromatic was 脿 la mode among the street-style crowd this season, with all-white ensembles being a particular favorite. Chronicles of Her blogger Carmen Hamilton聽embraced a more fall-inspired shade of navy blue, while dressing up a classic midi skirt and sweater ensemble with a few tough-girl add-ons like a Lucite, chain-accented collar and patent platform loafers.
