A mixed layering of useful articles and a play with cut and shapes made a bold move on the runways of New York this past fashion week.

Walking a fine line between hard-blown edge and a bit of peekaboo, these looks maintain their rough-and-tough sex appeal while serving many a possibility in the necessary wardrobe of the turning of a chilled to mild season. I personally love the thought of the showing of a little something sexy from underneath a warmer layer. 
My top picks in the utilitarian draw: Rag & Bone, Alexander Wang, Diesel Black Gold, Doo.Ri, Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Jeremy Laing, Kimberly Ovitz, Malandrino, Max Azria, Nicholas K and Rodarte.
