New York Fashion Week FW17 Trends To Try Now
For the past week we’ve been on runway lockdown as the Fall 2017 collections kicked off in New York. First off, kudos to each and every designer for pulling through in that blistering snowstorm. Not that any weather has really stopped a fashion week before but still, bravo. Anyways, taking our eyes off the weather channel and onto the runways, we’ve gathered some seriously amazing trends that we’re getting our hands on right now.
Why wait another six months? From western style vibes to ruffles on ruffles to belted outerwear, we’re taking them for a test drive. Think of this as a time to dip your toes in the trend water, experiment, and decide which ones you’ll be rocking full force in the Fall. Below are seven we’re most excited about and know you will be too.
The ruffle definitely isn’t dying and we’re totally ok with that. In fact it’s just getting bigger. We saw a lot of solo statement ruffles on the runways: bold tees from Apiece Apart, kick ruffle trousers from Rosie Assoulin. We’re saying, go with it. Try this rad Collina Strada denim ruffle top. (There’s also matching pants!)
Cinched waists took over the runways as coats and jackets were belted tight. 3.1 Philip Lim featured chain belts over big puffer jackets, Ryan Roche belted luxe fur coats, and Whit had thick leather belts over sweater coats. So close up your coat with that favorite belt of yours to get the look just like this R/H Studio Karla Coat.
Buh-bye matte finish. Jackets with a shine took on a strong presence once again, especially patent leather and plastic-y fabrics. Raf Simon’s debut collection for Calvin Klein featured plastic raincoats while Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s models rocked a shiny black patent jacket. Step into the shiny world with this perfect JH. Zane twiggy coat. Bonus: it has amazing statement sleeves.
Western-inspired looks strutted down the runways in forms of leather vests, big belt buckles, cowboy boots tucked into denim jeans and boiler suits like this Luisa et La Luna button-down jumpsuit. We love this modern silhouette with traditional details like the subtle western stitching and belted waist.
Beautiful floor length dresses such as Ulla Johnson’s satin number and Creatures of Comfort’s velvet piece, swept down the runways making all of our dress goals rise higher. Step into this this unreal Ryan Roche crochet dress to fulfil those goals and straight up feel like royalty.
Two words: power suit. Designers went heavy on suiting this season and it was glorious. From slouchy silhouettes to bold prints to the classic structured fit, there was about everything under the sun. All white was also a hit like this Maison Kitsune double breasted suit. It’s official, suits are totally out of office cool.
A good red will never go out of style, but this season designers took this bold hue to a higher, hotter level. Jason Wu, Derek Lam, Ryan Roche and Altuzarra were among the many that used red in full pieces and all over looks bringing about an undeniable powerful presence. Give this power color a try in this Kye ‘70s jumpsuit.
