New York Fashion Week is here again (Sept. 4-11), along with all the Instagram selfies and front row snaps that come along with the fashion industry's biggest month of the year. We decided to do our style homework this season by going straight to the top — fashion editors — for wardrobe inspiration:
Christene Barberich started more than just a website when she launched Refinery29, she began what’s referred to as the "cool girls’ club". This fair skinned, red-haired, lady-boss likes to pair neutral trench coats with her wild prints.

Calvin Klein Petite Belted Trench Coat, $99.98, macys.com
Carine Roitfeld, editor of the still new-ish publication CR Fashion Book, defies age and fleeting trends by sticking to pencil skirts. We love that she opts for classic basics that can be worn over again, making them realistic and always sophisticated.

7th Avenue Suiting Collection Pencil Skirt, $46.95, nyandcompany.com
The leader of the pack, Anna Wintour, isn’t just regularly sporting her bangin’ trademark bob and square sunnies. Ms. Wintour is also usually seen wearing a fitted cropped blazed or resting it on her Kanye-loving shoulders.

Slim Curve Blazer, $90, topshop.com
The down to earth and photographer-friendly Eva Chen of Lucky Magazine is more than Anna Wintour’s bestie. She’s flipped the publication’s image around and brought with it a following of fashion-forward shoppers. Eva often sports a cropped onesie but we found a few longer versions we think might be easier to pull off when paired with a little jacket.

Who can forget the bloggers! Man Repeller blogger Leandra Medine is regularly spotted in sailor stripe cotton boatneck tops paired with boyfriend jeans or flowy trousers, and always, gravity defying heels.
