As New York Fashion Week comes to an end, it’s time to talk about the trends that will take over Fall/Winter 2016. Metallics were all over the runways this season from Opening Ceremony with liquid palazzo pants to Suno with maxi, pleated metallics floating across the catwalk. Of course we are all attracted to shiny things, but wearing all metallics can be an eyesore. That’s why this trend is perfect as a statement piece. It can be worn with neutrals, which helps balance out the metallic look. Oh, I can not wait to rock this look on a night out come fall!
Graphic tights were another staple piece on the runway at New York Fashion Week. Alexander Wang sporting the models with tights that read ‘Girls’ or ‘Strict’ written above the knee. It’s a cute quirk to slip through as you sit down or get up in a dress or mini skirt. Tanya Taylor also showcased graphic tights in which the designs on the tights wore correlated throughout the entire outfit. So if you’re someone who is into matching your entire outfit, this is a look for you.
A new trend that I am excited about is a new color pairing combo. Meaning yellow’s combined with a rose quartz shade, featured in the Ulla Johnson presentation. This concept is also shown in Marissa Webb’s show with a mustard dress as the base, overlaid with a sheer, ruffled number. It’s extremely refreshing, especially for fall, which is commonly known for darker tones.
Overall, I was pleasantly impressed with the collections this season and I can’t wait to start putting some of these trends together come fall.
