Trends from New York Fashion Week 2016

New york fashion week 2016

New York Fashion Week usually forecasts the biggest trends which will be adopted by the masses in the near future. A multitude of refined fabrics are used in the creation of these exquisite pieces. Fashion enthusiasts like me, live for fashion weeks to see the collections from the most talented and creative designers. This time the collections involved recurrent elements from the spring 2016 shows. Most designers presented fall collections that were more spring- like in nature.

Here are the 5 trends which were more appealing to me:

  1. Off-the-shoulder

Similar to the Spring 2016 trends, naked shoulder is still in the limelight in the fall collections. Bare shoulders and collarbones seem to be the sexiest zone for this season. It could be seen in the collections of the following designers: Ji oh, Brandon Maxwell, Monse, Carolina Herrera, Lela Rose and Jason Wu, among others.

  1. Velvet

This extra soft and classy fabric definitely stole the show at New York Fashion Week. The designers added a touch of remarkable creativity using the luxe fabric and also by showcasing it in different colors with tones ranging from blush pink to olive green. Velvet, particularly, caught the eyes at Philip Lim’s fall collection, Ralph Lauren, Derek Lam, Tanya Taylor, Rachel Zoe among others.

  1. Furs

Can we think of fall collections without fur? Both faux fur and real were seen on the runways. Brought forward by various designers, the designs were breathtaking with dazzling colors, bringing them to life. There is nothing classier than fur! It was seen in the Michael Kors collection, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Rodarte and Anna Sui.

  1. Extra-long sleeves

Extra-long sleeve is the new trend of this season. Designers such as Sies Marjan, Michael kors, Ji Oh, Marc Jacobs and few others showcased it on the runways. We could not spare this one as they are really striking to the eyes, though it might not be to the taste of everyone.

  1. Turtlenecks under dresses

This is one of my favorites as I absolutely love turtlenecks. They are currently very trendy and seem that they will be here to stay for a while. I must say that wearing it on a dress looks definitely cool as seen at New York Fashion Week. It was appreciated in the following designer’s shows: Tory Burch. Karen Walker and Tome among others.
