So this time around I decided to break my NYFW coverage into two separate blog posts; one for a Runway Report (what trends I saw, looks I loved from each collection, what you should try working into your wardrobe now)— and another separate post for what I wore to fashion week, where I ate and stayed/ tips etc!
Wih that said, here goes Part 1!
Show 1: Taoray Wang
Collection summary: Lots of perfectly tailored suiting, with strong shoulders and cinched waists giving a chic nod to the 80s.
Colors: Navy, pink, grey
Get the look: pinstripes, midiskirts, double breasted blazers, puff shoulders, corsets and cool belts
Show 2: Son Jung Wan
Collection summary: Details, details, details; more is more, lots of incredible patterns, textures and layers that Son Jung Wan is known for. Sheer fabrics, pastels, and iridescent materials really stood out.
Colors: Aqua, checker, yellow, pastels, iridescents
Get the Look: try out sheer skirts over minis or shorts or pants, layer colors and textures, shorts with blazers
Show 3: Yuna Yang
Collection summary: super feminine, light and airy, Yuna Yang’s theme this season was “Freedom”— and the pieces def lived up this idea.
Colors: white, cream, lace pastels
Get the Look: more ruffles, midiskirts with shirts tucked in, off the shoulder looks still going strong
Show 4: Nonie
Collection Summary: Lots of fluid, slinky satin looks, combined with sheer pieces— extremely wearable, somewhat minimalist, and impeccably constructed
Colors, white, black, fuchsia, red
Get the Look: silky or satiny wrap dresses, plunging necklines, sheer pieces layered over pants
Show 5: Ruby Fang
Collection Summary: mostly evening wear, Ruby Fang’s attention to detail with a slight Asian flare make her pieces true standouts that any woman would love to wear for a schmancy occasion… this green suit was my absolute fave, in addition to these sheer sparkly dresses
Colors: Black, cream, mint, red, gold
Get the Look: Again, longer sheer pieces layered over shorter and more substantial ones ruled; get yourself a slim fitting, cropped suit immediately!
Show 6: Veronica Beard
Collection Summary: So much print mixing inspo, bright and happy patterns for suiting, more midi skirts with shirts tucked in— an overall tropical safai vacation gone very chic.
Colors: Yellow, tropical floral, metallic sequins for day, pinks, gingham and checkered pieces
Get the Look: if you didn’t get the patterned/ textures midi skirt with a contrasting shirt tucked in memo by now, consider this your wake up call! Also, if you’re a shorts person like me, try high waisted or paper bag shorts with patterned crop tops and blazers!
Show 7: Sally Lapointe
Collection Summary: Ah, Sally Lapointe— my fave of all faves for her mix of aspirational looks that are still very wearable- she just gets how the fashion forward New York girl wants to dress. This collection, as per usual, blew me away— mixing textures like cozy sweaters and vinyl/patent leather, lots more sheer pieces layered in interesting ways, shorts in varying lengths paired with cool jackets and the chicest iridescent plaid you ever did see.
Colors: monochromatic looks dominated the runway in colors like fuchsia (take note for spring) , nude, navy, peach and plaid
Get the Look: pair unexpected textures- think soft and hard together- patent and fuzzy, sheer and thickly constructed pieces. And more fitted midi skirts with sweaters or course.
…and that’s a wrap on this fashion week! Stay tuned for Part 2- my shoppable looks from NYFW, where I stayed, ate, and tips for going if you’re interested!
