Style: New York Fashion Week Highlights AW15

New York, New York! Our pick of the bunch from the big apple's fashion week

It was a good week, but there's no denying it – the fashion set have all gone a bit doolally for the 70's this season. If you're not prepared to blindly wade into over-sized shades, gaudy piping and kick-flares, here's you're guide to the best of the New York shows this Autumn-Winter.

Tommy Hilfiger celebrated their 30th birthday in style this year, with a tour-de-force collection of American sportswear classics in delicious autumnal shades and rich textures of leather, fur and alpaca.

Key piece: your very own American football jersey worn ever-so-nonchalantly. Or for a subtler take, how about a varsity striped scarf?

Carolina Herrera was one of the most outright stunning shows I've ever witnessed, a sea of cool, enchanting blues swathed the models as they glided down the catwalk. The designer has done it justice to her inspiration of water, and the mesmerising patterns it creates. Simply beautiful.

Key piece: a simply cut shift in cool blue tones for never-fail class this AW.

Zac Posen did what New York does best with look after look of timeless elegance sent down the catwalk. A vision in red and jewel tones, this was a lesson to us all in evening-wear chic. Subtle cut-out detailing and gentle nods to the current 70's revival kept this collection relevant.

Key piece: a demure, floor-sweeping, red-carpet-worthy red dress for that big do you've got coming up.

Marc by Marc Jacobs, in the safe hands of new girls Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley, showed a bold, punchy collection that stood out amongst the raft of 70's flares and assorted nostalgia this season. The MBMJ girl has something to say, and she's not afraid to say it. p.s. we love the William Morris florals.

Key piece: a black, studded beret, worn in a revolutionary manner.

What the stylish American woman would do without Ralph Lauren, I don't know. But she can rest easy this Autumn-Winter as the super-brand has provided her with yet another infinitely wearable collection in every shade of taupe. Lines are long, trousers hinting at flared, fringing both harks back to Native Americans leathers and 70's styling, and a stetson is the accessory of choice.

 Key piece: a wrap around shawl in any shade of taupe to see you through the chilly US Winter.

We'll be back with our low-down on London Fashion Week very soon!
