DKNY's Fall 2010 collection captures several of the trends that seem to be popping up all over New York Fashion Week: pleated skirts, a hint of glimmer, and totally Clueless inspired ensembles for the modern day Cher Horowitz.

DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

I can't keep up with newsboy caps. They were in a few years ago, but then out again, yeah? Well, now I think they're back in again, which is fine by me, because I'm a fan of anything remotely Newsies related.

I love the touch of shimmer in this. This is how you do subtle glimmer. Take notes, Ke$ha!

Camel and black have been everywhere on the runways, which isn't entirely surprising, considering that these are Fall collections.

Burgundy and this particular shade of blue seem to be quite popular, as well.


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

I swear, nearly every collection I've seen so far has "Cher Horowitz Wuz Here" written all over it.

Silver is still very big, as well.


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

I love this! This collection seems quite wearable off the runway.

Bows seem to be big this season as well, though they're simple and streamlined, and blend into an outfit, rather than being a centerpiece.

Schoolgirl-inspired pleated skirts seem to be all the rage as well. How do you guys feel about this? Is there a way to pull them off without looking like you're in a Britney Spears circa 1998 costume?


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

Again, SO Cher Horowitz!

Love the blue-brown combo. Also worth noting: socks where leggings used to be. Have we turned a corner?


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

I'm guessing this collection may bore some people, but I love the clean, simple, wearable look of it all. She's captured the 90s revival but spun it in a way that looks forward rather than backwards, which is great.

How do you guys feel about the shoes?


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

Adorable, no?

Not sure about the tie around the neck, but I love the color on the bag.

This will totally be on Gossip Girl next season.

I said something similar last night, but there is totally a high-fashion Contempo Casuals vibe to fashion week this year, isn't there?


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

Mix 'n' match.

"There's just something about a girl in a hat...it's just so...Vogue."

More pattern mixing—also very Cher. Cher is everywhere!


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

This is less Cher, more Blair, yeah?

Layering appears to be on-trend, as well. Not only are designers mixing patterns, but they're mixing lengths and fabrics as well. Metallics and camel? Sure! Leather and chiffon? Why not?


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

I'm not sure how much of the leather and fur we're seeing on the runways is real (I'm guessing quite a bit), but both are very popular this season, which I'm sure will not go over well with PETA.

"So okay, I don't want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don't get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair - ew - and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we're expected to swoon? I don't think so."


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

There's a lot going on here, but somehow it all comes together.


DKNY: Patterns And Platforms And Pleats, Oh My!

The designer herself looks pleased...

And I'm sure, somewhere out there, Cher Horowitz is already making a shopping list.
