Before the official onset of spring and warmer weather, here are the five fashion week-inspired looks that we’re trying right now. Which one is your favorite?

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.
One of my favorite things to do at the end of fashion week is to thoroughly scan every show to round up the top looks.

Here are fives runway looks that I’m dreaming of and a few tips on how you can rock the style at home.
