I'm always excited to see a Fall/Winter collection that incorporates colors that are associated more to spring—blush pinks, nudes, and oranges—and Kaelen never disappoints. What's more, she even uses lighter, silkier fabrics and pairs them flawlessly with heavier textiles and furs, creating an airy, light aesthetic for the drearier months. This Fall/Winter 2015 New York Fashion Week, designer Kaelen Haworth brought her unusual silhouettes, cool geometric patterns, and chic separates back to the table.

What truly stands out to me about Kaelen's pieces is her mix of structured tailoring with fun details. For example, her camel duster and fringe skirt combination or baby blue button up dress with one shoulder cut-out. If I were ever to choose a wardrobe for work, this would be it.

Her ability to mix patterns and textures together allow for a quirky aesthetic that still looks sophisticated and cohesive. Who would have thought you could mix stripes, a flower print, and a quilted jacket? We loved her color blocked coats, matching separates, and even her furry leotard and matching long robe, though it's probably best to keep that look outside of the office.

Oh, and don't even get me started with the stripes. The gorgeous print in blush pink and black were found throughout her collection, from skirts to boxy dresses. And the pink and orange creamsicle stripe combo made for the chicest ice cream man look ever.

Haworth, a Parsons graduate and Canadian native, has really come to find a silhouette that's appropriate for seven-day-dressing, from brunch on a Sunday to a business meeting to post-work cocktails. As Haworth told Style.com, "I wanted everything to have a purpose. There's nothing that's a real basic-basic."
