Fashion Week in NY is upon us — and not a moment too soon. So what will the celebs be wearing? And better yet, will you look like a star?

You will if you wear some of the trends. So take out those sky high stilettos, buy yourself a new print dress, or pull on some latex — and make sure you stand out!

Fashion Week is all about setting yourself apart from the crowd, whether it’s layering thin pin tees, turning your ball gown into an everyday affair or wearing a fabulous pair of peep toe booties.

Attitude and confidence, above all, is what you need whether you’re flaunting distressed denim or a bag that pops. So stop and check out some of these trends, incorporate them into your wardrobe, walk with a purpose and soon you’ll be a fashion star!

We know Victoria Beckham‘s the master of sharp shoulders, but when Kim Kardashian wore her structured white jacket with a belt to the Y-3 show back in February, we all let out a collective gasp. There was something so innovative, yet refined about the whole piece about the fitted piece with the pointy shoulders and we knew Kim was kicking off a big trend in a big way. Since then Mary-Kate Olsen, Rihanna, and Kate Moss have all pieced together, whether in fitted, crisp trousers or the architectural look and you should too, at upcoming Fashion Week!

Balmain does it best for a price! Balmain Peak Shoulder Leather Jacket $13,395

Black, white, silver and metallics says futuristic space age like no other and celebs are stepping out in a sequined shorts, sharp shoulders, oversize shades and detailed patent coats. During NY’s last Fashion Week for Spring Brittany Snow stepped out at Alexander McQueen in a funky art deco one sleeve dress that said futuristic to me in it’s colors, while Claire Danes chose a silver cap sleeve dress in silver for Zac Posen. Futuristic doesn’t have to mean overboard — although you could wear Star Trek shades like Paris Hilton and still be a star. We’d rather wear white sharp shoulders like Beyonce or shiny latex leggings like Lauren Conrad. Statement making but still just right.

American Apparel’s shiny bodysuit works well with a paired down high waist black skirt. Shiny Halter Bodysuit $30

Neon is back and better then ever, but dressing in brights doesn’t always mean all over color like socialite Tinsley Mortimer at Baby Phat’s runway back in February. Still, besides the bright green dangly hoops or the neon pink and blue Kate Spade bag, (it may not be enough if you really want to draw a crowd) you could always try one of Herve Leger‘s award winning neon bandage skirts in pink like Amanda Bynes or Michelle Monaghan‘s great technicolor Peter Som dress.
