7 Trends from New York Fashion Week That You Can Wear Right This Second
Forget the runways. We take to the streets to find our biggest fashion inspiration. And spoiler alert: This year is all about color (and maximalism in general). We've got that and six other mega trends you can adopt today.
Bold, Primary Colors
The meticulously curated, minimalist aesthetic of 2016 is taking the backseat, ladies. For 2017, you'll see many more vibrant hues and a general sense of joie de vivre. Try it, simply, in a striking sweater atop jeans.
We'll let you infer where this boss-lady trend came from. And this season especially, suits have been crawling all over fashion week. Again, look for them in bright colors and unexpected patterns. Then dress them down with a t-shirt or turtleneck.
Part of this wave of maximalism also includes the resurgence of labels and logos. And the easiest way to make a brand-loyal statement is through a simple tee. Bonus points if it's vintage.
Graphic Floral Motifs
"Florals for spring? Groundbreaking." (Our favorite line of all time.) But this year, floral patterns are getting bigger and bolder, and often showing just a single bloom. Look for it on everything from sweaters to handbags.
Patches and Pins
We've definitely told you about this trend before. And it's showing no signs of stopping. Gather your favorite decals and get crafty.
Hallelujah! Heels are no longer the end-all-be-all accessory to a fashion-forward outfit. More and more we're seeing ladies pair their dainty skirts with utilitarian boots. And we'd suggest you hop on the comfort train, too.
Yes, we've chatted about mini bags ad naseum. And they're definitely a major player for 2017. But when you actually need to cart stuff around, consider a compact bag. Something that's small and structured but not absolutely microscopic.
