New York Fashion Week has officially drawn to a close thus beginning the long wait between first seeing next season’s covetable looks and finally calling them your own. To help pass the time—and give you something to look forward to—W has teamed up with Moda Operandi to bring you the top fall 2022 looks from some of New York’s top designers. Since its launch in 2010, Moda Operandi’s virtual trunk shows have provided shoppers with exclusive access to designers’ collections straight off the runway. Instead of paying the full price upfront, you pay a deposit with the remaining balance due once the item is available and ready to ship directly to your door. Here, Team W shares their selects of what to nab now before it’s everywhere come fall. Check back here again next week when more of your favorites like Gabriela Hearst, Oscar de la Renta, and Michael Kors hit the Moda trunk show circuit.

We only include products that have been independently selected by W’s editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.

In a collection of mostly earth tones, I was particularly drawn to this red dress on the beautiful Majesty Amare. Designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough give this classic jersey shirt dress a twist with deconstructed arms and looped hem. It is one of those pieces that I'm always drawn to because it makes you feel simultaneously dressed up and effortlessly cool. —Nora Milch, Fashion Director

My favorite look from Peter Do's show is this simple and sharp skirt suit. It's masculine, sexy, and a little bit ‘90s, a combination I can't get enough of. —Christina Holevas, Senior Accessories and Jewelry Editor

I was drawn to all the shearling collars and layered skirts at the Altuzarra show. I particularly liked this look because each piece fit perfectly in my wardrobe either together or as separates. —Allia Alliata di Montereale, Senior Style Editor

If an evening gown were a coat, it would be this. Hoping it transforms me into Karlie Kloss upon wearing as well. —Jenna Wojciechowski, Senior Fashion Market Editor


Hanna Tveite

Khaite designer Cate Holstein knows how to make her customer feel cool. For this collection, the designer featured signature house classics like beautiful dresses and chic outwear, but with an edge. For me, the standout look has to be this sexy off-the-shoulder, '50s inspired tea-length dress. For any black-tie event in my future, you can find me in this number. —Laura Jackson, Fashion Market Editor

Gabriela Hearst

I love the flattering neckline and long sleeves of this Gabriela Hearst top. The pairing with these loose straight-leg black trousers gives it an elegant finish. —Allia Alliata di Montereale, Senior Style Editor

This combination of a bandeau and maxi skirt feels simultaneously sexy and chic. It's the perfect outfit for the most stylish and confident party guest. —Christina Holevas, Senior Accessories and Jewelry Editor

Anything that is a slight ode to the 90s I want immediately. This pop of color feels really bold yet chic aka the perfect standout combination. —Tori López, Fashion Assistant

Ulla Johnson

While romantic florals and puffed sleeves come to mind when thinking of Ulla Johnson, I was immediately drawn to this animal print coat when it walked down the runway at the New York Public Library. An edgier take on the brands speciality, this piece of outerwear is special in its own right nonetheless. ——Laura Jackson, Fashion Market Editor

Michael Kors

This look gives me all the disco fever! A glamorous faux fur coat worn over a sparkly skin-tight dress is the antithesis of loungewear dressing and I can't wait to try this on myself. —Laura Jackson, Fashion Market Editor

This green mini dress with an extravagant sleeve detail that doubles as a glove and has a train to match is a true standout moment. Coupled with an off-the-shoulder cut, we can see that skin is in for the fall 2022 season. —Amir La Sure, Accessories Assistant
