As much as fantasy rules the runways during New York fashion week (hello Marchesa) if you peel away the layers of D-R-A-M-A there’s often a few very wearable (translation: work-to-weekend) pieces thrown into the mix. And we’re not just talking bags, though accessories tend to be the bread and butter of ready-to-wear brands. At the end of the day, or rather the start of it, women want to go into their closets and pull out something cool, classic and chic. A simple silhouette; an easy-to-digest colour palette; pieces with serious day-to-night endurance. There will always be a time and place for a knock-your-socks-off frock but most days we crave fashion that says me, only better. Here are 5 ways to wake up your wardrobe for Fall 2013.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2012 backstage beauty: One show, two (or more!) beauty looks was the trend at Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Anna Sui and more
Remember when makeup artist Francois Nars created 65 different looks for the Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 show? Well, that didn’t happen this time around at New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 but some designers did decide to deviate from a uniform beauty statement, creating a few different looks for one show. Here’s our rundown of the best double takes from backstage:
Though Guido Palau gave every girl at Alexander Wang a tight, low ponytail, the accessory that ran down the centre part differed—a glow-in-the-dark adhesive strip on blondes and a black one for brunettes. The fair-haired set also had a different experience in the makeup chair: Diane Kendal bleached brows and created luminous skin, while their dark-haired counterparts had strong brows and matte skin.
In today’s exclusive video preview, Joe Fresh beauty director Simone Otis takes on another of fall’s biggest beauty trends: the brightly hued eye focus. As seen on runways at Anna Sui, 3.1 Phillip Lim and the like, the bright pop is likely all you need to make a bold statement. And now for the lessons!
