best of FW17 fashion week

Fashion month is half over, and while I'm always a little behind on the shows, I like to take the time to fully catch up and save all of my favorite looks to reference next season. Years back I was big into show-going and running around the city, but nowadays with the conveniences of social media it's much easier to watch my Instagram feed update, and take in the collections from a more digital glance. 

I've rounded up my top favorite ready-to-wear looks (emphasis on wearable) from New York and London thus far. It's hard to pick just one look per collection from newcomers like Khaite, Brock Collection and Trademark (though, now only focusing on accessories), who continue to leave me wanting more. 

To sum up my mood palette for FW17, think grown-up (yet grounded) sophisticate, more cherished basics (and less essentials), understated neutrals like 'vanilla' and 'tobacco,' and anything but basic 9-to-5 tailored separates. And can we talk about those serious, exaggerated side-parts? I'm on board right now.
