Fashion Week is like a party for your eyes, with inspiration coming from every direction. The street! The catwalk! Your Instagram feed! This is your daily do-now takeout, highlighting the coolest styling trick destined to work its way into your wardrobe.

Now, a plain white T-shirt, jeans and boots aren't going to give you a fast track to the front row – even if said jeans are the loose, ankle-grazing girlfriend style everyone's lusting after right now. But as big-time fashion blogger and photographer, Hanneli Mustaparta knows (spotted here at the Karen Walker show at New York Fashion Week), an oversized, patterned bomber jacket is an instant upgrade for blah basics. Handy tip if ever there was one. Thanks, Hanneli!
