3.Arcade Fire Chic

3/21

"The partially shaved head look -- Win Butler from Arcade Fire even has it -- was a huge trend at this year's Fashion Week, with both men and women," says Pastula. "With the juxtaposition of a feminine dress and leather rocker jacket, this is an interesting twist on the punk look."

4.Back in Black

4/21

"Though there's a lot going on with her look, she has it all under control -- the black leather shorts paired with tights and ankle boots is hot right now."

5.Swede Surrender

5/21

"It's a total Scandinavia look, which is really hot right now. The high-waisted belt, angular cuts, strong shoulders, and leather arms suggests she's interested in design and art."

6.Retro Rocker

6/21

"With the porkpie top hat and tank top, it's like he's channeling Pete Doherty circa 2002," says Pastula. "And that's not a bad thing at all."

7.Hipster Cool

7/21

"This is more of a hipster look with the worn-in Converse sneakers, horn-rimmed glasses, and suit vest," says Pastula. "She gives off a good vibe, like she has an esoteric knowledge of fashion and music."

8.Best of Both Worlds

8/21

"The combination of the a Chanel purse and a cheap, hippie-esque t-shirt is a great example of how to mix high fashion with items from the vintage bargain bin."

9.'Tie'-ing It Together

9/21

"Wearing a tie with shorts is difficult to pull off -- especially with commando boots. In theory this outfit is a disaster, but in execution it works. The blues and greys -- from his socks to shorts to shirt -- really hold this together."

10.Topping It Off

10/21

"Beards are still a popular trend, especially moving into the fall. He has a relaxed look with a buttoned-down collar and he's wearing the three major colors for this fall: black, grey, and beige. That hat really ties this look together."

11.Easy Does It

11/21

"It seems like a complicated look, but it's actually quite basic," says Pastula of the outfit on The City's Olivia Palermo. "She throws on a patterned cardigan for some color and pairs ankle boots with a leather backpack. It's easy; it's hot."

12.Board Certified

12/21

"Using a skateboard as a fashion accessory is genius. And look at that Band Aid! But can she do a kick flip in those heels?"

13.Military Precision

13/21

"The military-inspired look is still a major trend," says Pastula. "The worn-in vintage boots and the camouflage pants are always a stylish pairing."

14.Fresh Crop

14/21

"The short-cropped, leather bomber jacket with the slouching, baggy pants, and the shaved hair 'do give her an edgy style."

15.Naked Ambition

15/21

"You gotta love the side boob, right? Flesh is always in fashion!"

16.Cool Customer

16/21

"I love that this guy has the confidence to rock red pants with a scarf," says Pastula. "The white t-shirt balances out his look."

17.Pearly Whites

17/21

"That military-inspired green jacket and festive top just feels right with her million-dollar smile. Work it, girl!"

18.Layered Look

18/21

"The fleece jacket allows for a lot of movement, and he's obviously taking his photography seriously," says Pastula. "You can never go wrong with black -- and this dude has it in layers."

19.A Touch of Whimsy

19/21

"You have to appreciate that permed 'fro, which goes well with her whimsical look of an adventurous backpack and youthful flower-print dress, which accents her long legs," says Pastula. "It's stylish yet functional. And that's really what Fashion Week is all about."

20.Risk and Reward

20/21

"The eye shoots straight to her fishnet stockings, but she's covered up on top. That balance allows her to pull of this risky look."

21.Trail Blazer

21/21

"Kanye West was everywhere during Fashion Week," says Pastula. "The pink blazer with the sleeves pushed up is a cool look, and the black rose pin contrasts the white pants and shirt. Leave it to Kanye to wear white after Labor Day!"
