3.Marc by Marc Jacobs

"These shades of orange and red are already trends for the upcoming spring season. It's a practical design -- I always hear women complaining about dresses that have no sleeves."

4.Marc by Marc Jacobs

"Marc Jacobs was once fired by Perry Ellis for producing a grunge inspired collection -- and he still unites music and fashion in a functional way," says Pastula. "This is a great example of how to wear sneakers with a casual suit. Comfortable and stylish."

5.Diesel

The detailing work on the dress -- the leaf-like layers -- is an intricate yet comfortable style," says Pastula. "It creates a flowing feel and falls nicely on her leg. Add the leather jacket for a great nighttime outfit."

"This immediately makes me think of a music festival, like Coachella. The graphic on the leather shirt, paired with the fun scarf, fringed purse, and leather sandals gives her a '60s bohemian look."

7.Y-3, Adidas by Yohji Yamamoto

"Y-3 infuses sport into high fashion, and you can see that there's a lot of movement in her dress," says Pastula. "The cropped leather bomber jacket sexes up her style."

8.Phillip Lim

"There comes a time when we all need to wear a black suit, and you always want one that's stylish and not to stuffy," says Pastula. "Never be afraid to wear a black shirt underneath. There's a bit of ankle showing, too, which adds to his leisurely look."

9.John Varvatos

9/12

"It's John Varvatos' 10th anniversary as a designer, and he's a huge music fans and always draws inspiration from his musical tastes. This skinny tie and sleek tailoring invokes rock'n'roll fashion. It's like an early-1960s Mick Jagger look."

10.DKNY

"A staple in every woman's closet is the little black dress," says Pastula. "Donna Karan is known for the use of blacks, and this interpretation is completely contemporary with its deep neckline and mid-sleeves."

11.L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani

11/12

"When I think of Gwen I imagine her SoCal skater-girl look, which showed off her midriff. This is a really fun outfit, inspired by that era."

It's not often a designer models her own looks on the runway, but, hey, it's Gwen Stefani and she can pull it off," says Pastula. "Here, we see some African-inspired prints and it takes a strong personality like Gwen's to pair these two very different items together."
