New York Fashion Week took place during Feb. 11- Feb. 18, and had its unforgettable moments one show after another! Now that the Fall 2016 show has unfortunately ended, it’s time to take notice of the trends that have been checked and noted as the new you once Fall arrives!
As many designers showed off their runways looks, a lot of inspiration took place. It went from from the New York City girl, to futuristic cowgirl, to social expressions being vocalized and even goth was imitated, which spoke a lot on a new generational approach! It’s great, yet almost brilliant how style forecasters can reach the designers new inspirational desires to such a “T” that these designers like Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors have a very similar relation on what’s to come this Fall!
There were endless levels of furs that will be found practically on every outerwear item, oversized looks catered to the street wear phenomena, sequins, printed tights, mini skirts and lots and lots of prints, leathers, and velvet was heavily found!
This wasn’t the end to the wave if you thought, because I’ve gathered the top 5 trends that were eye balled the most as your next go to item!
Starting with: 1. High-neck wear and embellished chokers: There was more than enough high-neck dresses, sweatshirts and outerwear that will keep your look relaxed and cozy to be prepared for the wintry season sooner than you may usually would! It’s been found on designer capsule collections of Michael Kors, Alexander Wang, and Public School! Chokers on the other hand, may have made it’s mark for the millennials during Spring 2015, so even though it’s still trending, they’ve now evolved into thicker and more embellished accessory pieces! Designers like Rihanna’s, Puma x Fenty collection involved chokers actually hugging the model’s neck, while Lulu Frost had crystalized chokers, and Alexander Wang added some metal material into his collection!
2. Thick socks (with heels!): Last year, you may have noticed a lot of thin printed and laced crew socks that definitely made a unique statement towards your shoe game. Now the socks are a lot thicker and may come in solid colors to tone down your footwear accessory. Models were seen rocking open-toe heels, and boots with subtle socks that add a lot of confidence to walk out in the public with Spring shoes in the Fall. Designers like Phillip Lim, Tommy Hilfiger and VFiles brought that to the forefront!
3. Excessive sleeves: There’s no exaggeration, other than in the clothes when describing this next Fall trend. Almost every designer seemed as though they’ve embedded this style of choice into their collections like Marc Jacobs, Hood By Air and Delpozo! The extra layer of fabric was represented on models as the new streetwear, laid back attire. The sweatshirts and tops are nearly dragging on the floor, which proves that the new generation’s fashionista carries more confidence rather than being well-dressed in a suit and tie.
4. Mauve pink: It’s being seen on Spring 2016 capsule collections, and has now transferred to the Fall/Winter wardrobe. Pastel pink (a.k.a, mauve) was noticed on multiple collections and was even paired up with some shades of yellow, giving an exceptional contrast to add to any edgy style! Designers like, Alexander Wang, VFiles, Marchesa, Marissa Webb, Coach, Tory Burch and Dollops were giving life through that specific color hue!
5. Chic plaid: Plaid has been trending for many seasons during fashion week, but what’s different about plaid this Fall, is that it’s way more clean cut and not as bold (adding muted colors). Plaids were found on dresses and long blazers too for this Fall season. Designers like Victoria Beckham, Rag & Bone, Calvin Klein and Jason Wu embodied plaid into their collections making it sexy, chic and edgy all at once!
