Since New York Fashion Week has come to an end it’s time to reflect on all of the new trends that will fill our closets come next season. While various current trends are carrying over to Spring 2015 such as crop tops and all-white ensembles, there are plenty of new trends to look forward to as well.
1. Culottes – This wide-leg cropped style was all over the runways this season. The casual style was seen with crop tops or shirts tucked in. The best part about these versatile bottoms is that you can basically wear them with any type of footwear! Seen at: Nanette Lepore, Rebecca Taylor and Mara Hoffman.
2. Shirting – This menswear-inspired trend took off last season and is staying strong with crisp shirting appearing in many shows underneath dresses or classicly paired with trousers or skirts. Seen at: Thakoon, Michael Kors and The Row.
3. Cold Shoulder – Many designers are letting skin show this season, giving attention to bare shoulders. Off-the-shoulder tops were HUGE on the runway and it gives us a break from the constant display of midriff skin! Seen at: Christian Siriano, Tibi and Jenny Packham
More Spring 2015 trends to come! What are some of your favorites?
Kicking off #NYFW in the only way they know how, the designers at BCBG Max Azria set the tone (muted-tone, that is) for this ever-so-stylish week. Combining pastels and whites with flowing, breezy dresses and subtle pops of painterly patterns, BCBG was all about the femininity of Spring dressing. Dresses were loose except for some belts that were tied in an almost kimono-belt way. Skirts and culottes were also oversize, light and flowing while tops had a geometric criss-cross cut at the neck. The gorgeous subdued neutral (white/cream and blush) moto-jackets brought out the extent of any masculinity to the collection. Loving all of these pieces was super difficult for many BCBG fans since this collection was already available to shop via the brand’s Instagram! So cool! See some of my favorite looks below.
As I am sitting here sipping my pumpkin coffee (yes, hot coffee and yes, I’m sweating), I’m dreaming about bright orange and red leaves falling to the ground and cool, crisp air just cold enough to see my breath. I’m also dreaming about that magical time of year where big warm scarves and sweaters accompany jeans and boots of all heights. September, October and November – well, really fall in general is my favorite season of year. The fashion, the cooler temps and the beverages all make for the coziest months of the year. Mind you right now it’s in the 90’s and all of those layers are giving me a bit of anxiety but it’s all about painting the picture, right? Right! So, I thought I’d share a little fall outfit inspo to get us all ready for when those coat-needing, chilly days arrive. Enjoy!
