As exciting as Fashion Week always is, it's a little bit of a cruel joke. I mean, I'm all for getting a full-on preview of every dress, shoe, and trend I'll be lusting after in the future, but to have to wait basically a YEAR to have any hope of actually getting my hands on it?? What a tease. If you're anything like us, you feel this, too, and for you, dear MTV Style readers, we have a happy little post-New York Fashion Week treat: FOUR Fall 2012 outfits that you can replicate right now!

Mara Hoffman's fall collection was an amalgamation of ethnic and frontier influences, and thanks to the geometric Aztec prints and intarsia knits on racks right now, you can cobble together this ensemble right now. All you'll need is a graphic printed tee like this long-sleeved one from American Eagle, some vibrant pleated peg-leg trousers, a geometric cardigan, black ankle booties, a floppy felt hat, and a chunky gold necklace. Voila! Your very own expedited runway look!

Just as we were cooling off from the bondage meets Americana frenzy of the Spring 2012 Adidas Originals x Jeremy Scott collection, we received exclusive images from the fall 2012 line, and we audibly gasped when we peeped each piece for the first time. The classic Jeremy Scott teddy sneakers are back (!!!), but this time covered in a groovy flower print and a lime green sole. Rory Rockmore, our resident Jeremy Scott expert, gave us the lowdown and said these shoes will ALSO be available in children's sizes. "It's like a little bit of every cuddly JS shoe teddy you've ever loved, wrapped up with a bow on it." According to Mr. Rockmore, Lil Wayne was the first person to ever sport these sneaks almost exactly a year ago (time is FLYING) in the traditional brown-and-white colorway. Then we spotted them again in black and white when Jeremy first released images of his Adidas Originals collab last summer. Whew, these shoes have seen so many permutations, we can hardly keep up. But there's moooree!
