10 Trends That Emerged During NYFW


I wanted to do something different for you all to see today! It has been a while since I have done a post like this so I wanted to switch it up for you all to see. I have more content coming for you all to see. Now enough jibber-jabber and lets get into this post shall we.

Super Stripes!

Bold, Bright, and brilliantly textured, spring's stripes trend are a jolt of energy in a sea of classic Bretons. And while they came in all shades of the rainbow this season, the favorites were those that featured graphic primary colors anchored down with some polished black (naturally, Rosie Assoulin's sequin shirtless was another standout of the week.)

Garden Party

I know, I know, isn't it just groundbreaking. Florals for spring? But in all seriousness, the season's florals felt fresh in their unabashed femininity, blooming up and down long, tiered skirts, ruffled jumpsuits, and voluminous sleeves.

Bra Tops

For those with ample confidence (and not ample cleavage) there will be endless opportunities next spring to take the crop top trend to its logical conclusion and skip the "top" part all together. Lingerie-like pieces were paired with evening skirts, cropped jeans, slinky suits, and more at shows as varied as Alexander Wang, Tory Burch, and Oscar de la Renta. 

Luckily, we still have a little time to start working on our abs in preparation! Lol

Shades of Blue

One of the easiest colors to wear was also one of the most popular across the board this season-which should come as some relief to those who need a break from black and white but aren't quite ready to heed designer's calls for orange as a new neutral. From the palest sea-foam to the richest cerulean, blue are a tune everyone can sing.

Bad Girls' Club

More-is-more maximalism plus a DGAF attitude is shaping up to be the quickest ticket to the cool kids' table this spring. This references may have been wide and varied- glam rock and rave culture at Marc Jacob's, rock-ability rebels at Coach, louche tropical vibes at Baja East - but ultimately, the same young, wild, and free spirit ran through some of the best shows of the week.

Updated Oxfords

The classic striped button-down has been turned on its head (sometimes quite literally) this season, with designers adding flounces, slashing shoulders, and super-sizing the silhouette, stripping it of any stale, corporate connotations in the process. It's a look that pays homage to tradition, but shows you're not too concerned with playing by the rules.


Is it just me or is the future looking especially bright!? Designers dipped their toes back into fluorescent waters for spring, both for day and for night. While the high-wattage look may seem like a lot IRL, DKNY's neutral-colored layers and athleisure vibe suggested a wearable way to try out the trend at home.


Frills were HUGE at NYFW, both in terms of proportions (some looked capable of swallowing models whole) and in terms in popularity (you'd be harder pressed to find a show that didn't feature a little bit of flounce). The styles we're most eager to get a hold of, were those that balanced the femininity with a little sleekness or ease- think asymmetrical dresses, one-shoulder tops, and voluminous skirts styled as effortlessly as a pair of jeans.

All Tied Up

Laces: no longer just for your sneakers. Thanks to this season's runways, there will be plenty of creative ways to strap up for spring, both subtle (Kaelen's spliced shirts and suede dresses) and in-your-face (Alexander Wang's bare, belted waists'; Mill's criss-cross arm ties).

Cool Khaki

"Beige" stopped being a synonym for "boring" the second Kim Kardashian slithered into Band-aid-colored bodycon, and this spring, neutral hues will be especially widespread. At Dion Lee, the timeless trench silhouette got treansformed into tailored, slit-shoulder jackets and belted skirt-pants, while at Ulla Johnson and Creatures of the Wind, khaki's sometimes-utilitarian feel was nixed by nipped waists and femme ruffles.
