Fashion Week is where the industry’s best dressed come together to express their personal style and help us fashion enthusiast with the latest trends. Whether that be colors, silhouettes, patterns or fabrics, we are forever grateful and inspired by the amazing fashion being worn during the weeks of runway shows. During New York Fashion Week, we snapped a few-okay maybe a ton-of photos and have compiled a quick and easy guide to this year’s fall fashion trends.
- WHITE HEAD TO TOE
This had to be the most prominent trend seen at NYFW and we have to say, we are loving it. Often it was worn in multiple textures and fabric weights to add dimension and add break up an otherwise monotone look.
For fall, we recommend choosing white pieces that come in heavier weights to add a little bulk to an outfit and make it more winter appropriate. We’ve all heard to rumor, “You can’t wear white after labor day” but we say nonsense! White on white is going to be HUGE this season so don’t let the old rumor mill stop you from making a statement.
- DUSTY PASTELS
This has been mentioned in previous posts, but again, we cannot enforce it enough. NYFW was full of dusty pastel pieces, from outerwear, to skirts, dresses, and even accessories. The most popular use this fall will be in oversized coats and capes and the delicate hues balance out the masculine silhouette of structured outerwear.
This fall, we suggests choosing pastel pieces with lots of texture. This way, we steer clear of the soft silky fabrics of spring and summer and transition into the colder months of fall and spring. Heavy knit sweaters, fuzzy wool coats, and massive woven scarfs should be go-tos for everyone’s fall wardrobe.
- BLACK AND WHITE
From solid colors to eclectic mixed patterns, the black and white trend was everywhere at fashion week. It was a huge trend this past summer and it’s definitely sticking around for fall and winter. What’s so great at this trend though is that it’s actually the easiest look to pull off. At NYFW sometimes the best-dressed attendees wore nothing more than a white button up and pair of black slacks.
For the colder months we suggests heavy layering with black and white pieces. Add a pattern into the mix to ground the outfit and make it pop and then accessorize with black and white shoes, hats, bags, and jewelry. It’s impossible to go wrong so have fun with it!
