All of us swoon over the outfits from Fashion Week, but very few of us actually have the courage to try them out. Either they seem too unconventional for the everyday, or we just don't have the time to find the right piece of clothing! As legendary photographer Bill Cunningham said, “Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.”  So, with this in mind, we took inspiration from NYFW Fall 2017 trends to round up our top list of apparel and accessories that you can find right here in Qatar!

Who said fall can’t be frilly and fun? Fringes were all over New York Fashion Week’s Fall 2017 collections. Designers like Marchesa, Christian Siriano, and Michael Kors incorporated fringes into their Fall ’17  runway shows, and we loved it!

Are pantsuits still avant-garde? They are for every girl who is her own boss. Did you know Coco Chanel was the pioneer behind pantsuits for women? You can look effortlessly chic, yet perfectly put together at the same time. Designers at The Row and Oscar De La Renta stuck to classic, crisp pantsuits, whereas Phillip Lim and Jason Wu played around with more voluminous versions!
