New York Fashion Week has officially ended as of yesterday, but the visions of uniquely contemporary designs will forever remain in our minds as we dream of what we will be wearing this fall/winter 2015. After all the shows are over and the runways have cleared, now is the time to really pinpoint which trends will truly make it to our closets, going from runway to reality.
On the runways, jewel tones defined the color concepts consistently among all the designers as well as lots of blacks, whites, and grays. We saw fur trapper hats and wide brim fedoras on models wearing ladylike silhouettes at Ralph Lauren, dark and ethereal palettes with a goth like exterior at Marc Jacobs, and most remarkably were the classic feminine prints & patterns on beautifully tailored blouses and dresses at Oscar de la Renta (taken over by creative director Peter Copping due to Oscar’s recent unexpected passing). In my opinion, Mr. de la Renta would have been proud.
Other key pieces to note were the crocodile skin kimono wrapped jacket at The Row, collegiate style varsity sweaters paired with mink skirts at Tommy Hilfiger, leather turtlenecks at Alexander Wang, and crop tops over crisp button down shirts at Thakoon.
Trends to try were elegant furs (in assorted hats, scarves, and thrown over shoulders), oversized sweaters and coats, lots of leather (cropped pants and tops), parkas worn with sequined dresses, combat boots with mini skirts, and socks with platform sandals and heels.
Below are my top looks from some of my personal favorite designers:
