The Most Coveted Fall and Winter Trends From NYFW

With New York Fashion Week (NYFW) drawing to a close, the eyes of buyers, celebrities, and other elite invitees have been on New York’s runways to see what to expect in stores this upcoming fall and winter.

This week the catwalks were a whirlwind of trends; from edgy monochrome looks to glitzy 70s inspired pieces.

And  even though fall is still months away, we took the liberty of rounding up the most notable trends you can expect to see in stores six months from now.


Nineties Revival 
It looks like the 90s are still making a comeback. Slip dresses were a catwalk favourite from designers Alexander Wang and Narciso Rodriguez to Victoria Beckham and The Row. Pair a slip dress with an edgy leather jacket and a pair of black heeled ankle boots and you got yourself a runway approved look for the fall.

Oversized Clothing
While oversized and baggy clothing came across as grungy before, many designers made it clear that bigger can be better. Throughout NYFW, designers revealed that oversized pants, jackets, sleeves, and blouses would be a staple in your fall wardrobe. We think this oversized Calvin Klein jacket with the faux fur collar is stunning and is the perfect example of how to wear this trend without going overboard.

Perhaps we’ve all been spending too much time on our cellphones, as emoji-like symbols and phrases were staples in many designers collections. From patches to bold cartoons, both Libertine and Alexander Wang were no strangers to this attention getting trend. We love that it can add some pizzaz to an otherwise simple outfit.

New York fashion is always full of attitude, so it was no surprise to see collections from Victoria Beckham, Vera Wang, and Rihanna’s FENTY collaboration with Puma to be filled with sleek black and white pieces. This trend focuses on the power of simplicity, but when the colours are combined correctly, the end results are really compelling.

Bold Prints
One trend that always returns is bold statement prints on fitted pieces. It’s a trend we’re happy to see back as a few bold pieces can easily be paired with toned down jackets and accessories. We love this long bohemian statement dress by Nicole Miller.

Textured Knits 
Knits are always a staple item for fall, but designers gave knitted pieces a much needed update this year. Instead of sticking to safe neutrals, designers got creative and added their own flair to the classic piece. Jeremy Scott’s knits looked more like a work of art, while Tommy Hilfiger’s knits had more of an airy and whimsical vibe. We love this burgundy fringe Altuzarra ensemble, the knit popping against the monochrome pencil skirt.

70s Glam
Diane Von Furstenberg shared her epic 70s-inspired collection, which proved that disco isn’t dead. The collection was full of jumpsuits, glitter, and bright colours – the perfect statement items to brighten up a gloomy fall day.
