After eight days of runway shows, New York Fashion Week is finally over. And while models were strutting on the runway we were taking mental notes, forecasting the fashion trends for the spring. Stripes, metallic’s, and 90′s sporty references are at the top of our list. Check out the top 10 New York Fashion Week trends.
90′s Fashion Flashback
Designer’s like Alexander Wang and Kate and Laura Mulleavy for Rodarte were inspired by the 90′s fashion scene. Get ready for 90′s sporty references in the spring.
Whether it was sheer layering or a sheer insert Marc Jacobs and Monique Lhuillier showed us why sheer detailing will be a spring trend.
Thanks to designers like Tracy Reese and Vivienne Tam baring your midriff is here to stay. After becoming a wardrobe staple this past summer, get ready to see crop tops again.
White on White
Will all white ever get old? I don’t think so and neither do Prabal Gurung and Lubov and Max Azria for BCBG.
Black and White
I couldn’t be happier that my favorite color combination will get another season to shine. Black and white is chic and classic. Next spring, you’ll get your chance to add more to your wardrobe thanks to Carmen Marc Valvo and Christian Siriano .
Beach inspired motifs will be a hit for the spring, just ask Peter Som and Tom Mora for J.Crew.
Zac Posen and Georgina Chapman for Marchesa used dramatic ruffles to make a huge statement on the runway. Let’s hope the ruffles are toned down before hitting the racks..
Horizontal and vertical stripes also made a bold statement this spring. While stripes are bold, Christian Siriano and Badgley Mischka played it safe with a classic color palette .
After a few days into NYFW, I was sure metallics would be trending for the Spring and I’m not disappointed one bit. The metallics Joseph Altuzarra and Diane von Furstenberg sent down the runway are chic, not cheesy.
P.S. Bermuda Shorts
Because I really couldn’t narrow it down to 10, I had to add one more. Bermuda shorts made it down the runway in just about every show. These shorts were popular a few years ago and it appears they’ll be back for the spring.
