What we love about the New York Fashion Week is how each of the designers who participates in the event sometimes end up with similarities. They still have their signature touches, however they couldn’t seem to escape the similar air of the next season’s offerings. Here are some of Fabcrush favorites from the event. First up: bold fresh colors from DKNY.
Still in the bold colors mood, Project Runway alum, Christian Siriano offers some freshness in the formal lineup.
Tommy Hillfiger also came up with some fresh colors in its resort collection.
In the formal front, along with Christian Siriano, Zac Posen offers some really elegant structured dresses in calmer color tones.
Among the blocks of bold colors, Charlotte Ronson presented prints on her collection. Symetrical lines and patterns adorn the collection and we LOVE them.
Which collection will be filling your wardrobe next season?

Some of us don’t look that great in bikinis, and that’s a fact we have to deal with every time summer comes. However there’s a true misconception about one-piece bathing suits. While often perceived as ‘not hot enough’, one-pieces can actually be sexier than the typical bikini. The secret is: you’ll have to know which one is right for you. Fabcrush editors are all about sexy one piece this summer with this basic fashion principle in mind: sometimes, too much skin revealed is just not as sexy as creating curiosity. So take a look at our picks for the summer’s hottest one-piece swimsuits:
Norma Kamali Bill One Piece in Red, $385
MIKOH Swimwear Lucas One Piece in Turquoise, $185
Juicy Couture Miss Softee Bandeau One Piece in Black, $164

There’s a reason why summer is around, and one reason we love is that we get to strut our stuff on the beach. And you know, by ‘our stuff’ we don’t just mean our bodies, we mean the whole package. Before you head to the seasides, check the summer sale they’re having over at ShopBop. Today we found some really amazing stuff and that includes this edgy poncho from Brochu Walker, which could be a great cover-up for your bikini.
Brochu Walker Angled Poncho, was $285, now $142.50
And what to wear underneath? Opt for a bright-colored string bikini. Like this one:
Milly Fiji String Bikini Top, was $88, now $26.40
Other options for cover ups are loose t-shirts and shorts. But why go for boring tees if you can have edgy ones? Check this three-strap back tee from KAIN Label.
KAIN Label 3-Strap Back Tee, was $97, now $48.50
Add a touch of high fashion to your beachwear. Something blue and cheerful, perhaps?
Marc by Marc Jacobs Willis Knit Shorts, was $138, now $69.00

The detachable strap on the bandeau of this Karima Bikini means that you won’t suffer from tan lines, but you can still grab a little extra security when you dive into the waves! Available in a cool “black grape” color, this bikini offers minimal coverage for pool party (or honeymoon) fun. It’s just begging for a sexy, asymmetrical cover-up to be tossed on over.
Swimwear is getting more and more glam every year! If you don’t mind a little bit of embellishment on your bikini, try on the Melissa Odabash Sharita Bikini. It comes in a gorgeous shade of green but the real treat is the stone detailing on the strap of the halter top. Enjoy the bandeau style top with a ring, and string bikini bottoms as well.
(Jantzen Bandeau Maillot, $84.95)
This retro-styled suit is a beautiful little confection that totally intrigues. You don’t need to be wearing a string bikini to attract the fellas along the seashore. Uber-traditional Jantzen swimwear is back with their traditional styles, slightly vamped up for 2008. A slightly open back allows for just a subtle peek of skin. Low-hip coverage and a feisty lower neckline. Super-sexy and darling!
Isn’t this bikini just to die for? I found it over at YumDrop and am absolutely, positively obsessed. A heart ring adorns your cleavage with a bandeau-styled halter top in Parisian red, white, and red. The bottoms are equally as cute, with the heart rings located smack dab on each hip and contrasting nicely with the bulk of the briefs. Wear your starlet shades with these ones!
This swimsuit has such a cool vintage feel in ruched cherry red. Talk about enhancing your curves with just a subtle touch! We love the fitted waistline and cool long-line feel that will make your torso look miles long! Despite its slightly modest view in front, you’ll be able to show some skin with a large peek-a-boo keyhole section in the back. A wrap bust lifts your bustline despite the fact that you’re wearing a strapless suit.

Swimsuit season is almost here, but as most of us know, beach fashion isn’t just about the suit. A cute cover is pretty much a necessity when you’re out of the water. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite cover ups in different styles and at prices that are good for all of our budgets. Keep reading to see what we’ve picked out!

The only thing hotter than a teeny, weenie triangle bikini is a tiny rouched bikini. These swimsuits leave only a tiny bit more to the imagination with their halter style tops that are rouched straight down the bust. Two great choices are the Cable Twist Halter Bikini from Letarte Swimwear ($) and the polka dotted Victoria’s Secret Adjustable Triangle Bikini (top $15; bottoms $16). Both are navy with those cute little ties at the hips. And they’re still sexy as ever, without the fear of a wardrobe malfunction.
This Salt Swimwear Sienna Sexy One Piece Swimsuit proves that the one-piece is here to stay. This gold one-piece with ruffles races up your sides with a clean look and a cooler feel. A super slim strap runs across your back, while the one-piece in a solid sparkle is fantastic. A small flash of belly skin is the icing on the cake for this beautiful swimsuit find.
