NYFW 2016: The Best Looks

posted in: Fashion, Looks | 0

Trends come, go, and come back again. See what stood out at this spring’s fashion week in New York City.

A Belted Waist

Structure is always flattering, and cinching the waist creates a feminine, shapely silhouette. This trend isn’t exactly new, but it’s different from yesteryear.  Right now we’re seeing more simple, monochromatic belting that blends seamlessly into the look.

Where We Saw it: Michael Kors, 3.1 Phillip Lim, The Row

Feelin’ Groovy

Fashion repeats itself, and the 70s are back. After years of skinny jeans we’re finally seeing more shape in high-waisted flares. Crochet, fringe, and suede are also having a serious moment.

Where We Saw it: Tommy Hilfiger, Derek Lam, Karen Walker

Pantone’s Colors of the Year

Perhaps 2016 will be there year of indulgence because Pantone has picked not one- but two- colors of the year. According to Pantone, “Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”

Where We Saw it: Cristian Siriano, Rebecca Minkoff, Mara Hoffman

Skin is In

“Strong not skinny” seems to be very in vogue, which means crop-tops and cutouts are here to stay. Let’s be honest: if you’ve worked that hard on your killer abs and toned arms, you’ll want to show it all off. Pair your crop top with a high-waist and lady-like shape to avoid looking like Sport Spice. Unless, of course, that’s what you’re going for.

Where We Saw it: DKNY, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Prabal Gurung

Tropical Punch

Spring flowers are so passé. This year, slip into something more exciting like banana leaves and palm trees. We’re always longing for a tropical getaway, and this may just be the next best thing.

Where We Saw it: Rag & Bone, Tory Burch, Yigal Azrouël

White Out

I’m all about a monochromatic look, and I’m definitely seeing a pattern here. While darker colors (read: black) are definitely more flattering, there’s something so crisp and fresh about white from head to toe.

Where We Saw it: Alexander Wang, BCBG Max Azria, Zac Posen
