From February 9th to the 16th, models clad in this season’s hottest trends studded the runways at New York Fashion Week. Though it only lasts 8 days, NYFW is instrumental in the world of fashion. New beauty trends pop up, and of course, A-listers sit front row to watch it all unfold. Here is a recap of most popular looks at NYFW.
Voluminous sweater and shirt sleeves were a NYFW favorite. Some brands like Brock and Calvin Klein inflated the shoulders. Meanwhile on neighboring runways, designers like Rosie Assoulin and Alexander Wang added some oomph around the wrists.
Who knew your grandmother’s curtains could look so chic! Designers Derek Lam and Altuzarra favored dusty, muted florals for their Spring ’17 collections, while Tory Burch and Adam Lippes prefered bold and bright.
Marigold is predicted to be the color of Spring 2017. For winter, it’s that sunny yellow color but in soft, lush fabrics. Models at Calvin Klein rocked yellow fur coats lined with plastic. The Marc Jacobs collection revolved around yellow velvet staples and fuzzy cardigans.
Both Proenza Schouler and Mara Hoffman displayed single sleeved shifts in their spring collections: one sleeve to keep you warm, the other to keep you cool. This asymmetrical style is both edgy and stylish.
An equestrian reference at Tory Burch is anything but surprising, but what about ones at Altuzarra or Alexander Wang? Both collections featured classic blazers, riding pants, and boots in a new light; pops of color, leather accents, and good-girl gingham put a swank spin on the standard styles.
Pink Suits and Trenches
The millennial generation’s official color meets the “must have items in every young professionals wardrobe.” The bubblegum suits at Oscar De La Renta and 3.1 Phillip Lim go hand in hand with the blush hued trenches at Adam Lippes and Tome.
Sequins and Crystals
The Adam Selman and Jonathan Simkhai collections featured this shiny new style via subtle crystal trimming. On the other hand, designer Sally LaPointe preferred the human disco ball look with fishscale sequined slips and skirts.
The Pyper Moss, Dion Lee, and Marc Jacobs collections brought back the 1980s fad of full sweatsuits. Sweatsuits in all different silhouettes, colors, and textures stole the runway this season
