After seven days of trench coats, shades of beige and khaki, and carefully tailored looks, we've never seen so many unique designs look so similar. The devil was in the details on Day 7. Here are some highlights:

· Bill Blass had a teensy obsession with see-through knits and mesh-over-tanks-and-dresses, but kept the rest of the looks conservative. The orange dress made us feel a little dirty. [Fashionologie]

· The gold ain't just on the logo buttons any more for Tory Burch. There was an abundance of orange (does anyone look good in orange, really?) and other metallic shenannigans. [StyleList]

· Michael Kors took neutrals to a new level, with earth tones, earth-friendly fabrics and earthy textures. [All the Rage]

· Nanette Lepore's white eyelet and floral prints were to be expected, although the abundance of white started to look a little bland. [WWD]

· General Idea was incredibly preppy, except for the puffy-paint explosion trash bag with a matching tote. [GQ]

· The swimwear at Gottex looked painful in the ladybit area, and the black sequined number reminded us that if we like it then we should put a ring on it. [HuffPo]

· Milly's pretty preppy prints had us seeing red and feeling green with envy, but what really caught our eye was the amazing technicolor dream coat (with matching bag). []

· Anna Sui made sure to wear some flowers in her hair when she went to New York. The khaki, the feathers, the hair wreaths and the flowing bohemian looks made us long for an acoustic guitar and an open field. [The Cut]

· Phillip Lim mixed khaki with a little baby blue and black to create an elegant but not really stand-out collection. Although we loved the resurgence of polka dots. [WWD]

· Mackage showcased neutral-colored, open-front jackets with exaggerated, rounded shoulders. This show was one of the few where we noticed short skirts and studs. [Zimbio]

· We see London, we see France, we see Proenza Schouler's underpants! The designers played with sheer fabrics and textures and showed off a lingerie collab with Jean Yu. [Fashionologie]
