New York Fashion Week Trend Report

It’s that time of the year again, fashion season kicked off with New York Fashion Week, giving us an idea of the trends we’ll be wearing soon.The city that never sleeps is even more awake during this crazy time with fashionistas flocking to the runways and celebrities fighting over front row seats. While there is a lot of hustle and bustle, in the end it all comes down to the fashion shows.

With London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Week to follow, New York’s designers are the first ones to show the fashion obsessed how they are supposed to dress in about 6 months time. Curious? I spotted the following trends:

1. Sheer skirts

Showing some skin without looking “cheap” can be quite tough, but the easy solution is sheer fabric. Jason Wu, Diane von Furstenberg, and Derek Lam show how it’s done with dresses that cover and reveal just enough.

2. Bright red

The Fall collections are usually rather full of neutral tones and lots of black, but this season there was a popping colour on almost every runway. Bright Red will be a must have, especially when it comes to coats.

3. Buckle up

The body part that we want to accentuate next season is definitely the waist. Belts around the models’ waists in all sizes and shapes served as the it-accessory at Opening Ceremony and Jason Wu, making even the most androgynous look a little bit more feminine.

4. Turquoise

Yes, it’s a tricky colour to pull off, but according to Derek Lam, DKNY, and Zoe Jordan, Turquoise is the new Black. Pair it with Whites for a crisp, beachy look or make a bold statement by pairing Turquoise with Browns and Reds.
