New York Fashion Week Recap

Now that New York Fashion Week is over I figured I'd do a quick recap on the trends seen throughout the runway. We still have many other fashion weeks to go, like London and Paris, but we'll see what the American designers were envisioning.

To begin. FUR. It seemed as if almost every single designer had fur in the their collection in one way or another.

Michael Kors
Marc Jacobs
Oscar de la Renta

Metallics were also another big trend this season, resurfaced from a few seasons ago. Some people take metallics too far but I think these designers did them just right. Take notes :)

Rachel Roy
Jason Wu
Alice + Olivia

There wasn't that much color on the runway as well. Many designers used monotone colors such as nude and black.

Victoria Beckham

3.1 Phillip Lim

One trend I loved and can't wait to partake in (yes, I'm lame) is thigh/knee high socks. A lot of designers teamed up their collections with these socks either by themselves with open toed or closed toe shoes or underneath boots.

Jill Stuart
Charlotte Ronson
Alexander Wang

Lastly, there were a lot of military inspired pieces from different designers. I like the trend and the new interpretations on it.
