NYFW Trend Recap
For me, there’s nothing better than getting inspiration from NYFW. To be honest, even though it’s about predicting fashion about six months ahead, I love nothing more than taking cues from the runway and beginning to incorporate the trends I love most into my wardrobe.
I wasn’t able to attend NYFW this year as I was prepping for my wedding (stay tuned for more wedding posts soon), but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t following the shows via social media and the web.
Read on for my NYFW trend recap.
Back to the 80s
Everyone loves a good throwback moment, right? I was absolutely obsessed with the ‘80s themed pieces on the runway this NYFW. With everything from super-oversized (and electric-hued) outwear courtesy of Marc Jacobs to sexy little dresses by Isabel Marant, there were serious eighties vibes going on.

While I’m not typically a fan of glitz and glitter, I couldn’t get enough of the high-shine looks on the runways of some of my favorite designers. Leave it to Balmain to take things to entirely new levels with heavy paillettes and sparkling sequins. I especially loved how certain designers added shiny details to translucent dresses, giving them versatility to style over LBDs, bodysuits, and lacy underpinnings.

I’ve been a fan of crochet details since before I can remember, so naturally, I gravitated towards this trend as it popped up on the runways. I love how designers like Ulla Johnson, Jonathan Simkhai and Carolina Herrera incorporated this trend into dresses, rompers, tops, and even pants. And rather than going all out, some of the details were subtle enough for every day wear.

As the cooler weather quickly approaches, most people are reaching for the classic darker hues. And even as a LA native, I tend to stick with more neutral shades. That said, I was in love with the neon looks that stood out to me on the runways. From Louis Vuitton to Prada, designers were reaching for vibrant shades that were surprisingly wearable.

For spring 2019, bright and bold marigold is going to be huge. And it was pretty obvious on the runways, popping up in pieces by Self-Portrait, Karen Walker, Oscar de la Renta, and so much more. According to Pantone, this uplifting shade stimulates feelings of joy and good cheer (and what’s not to love about that?).

I typically tend to gravitate towards more off-duty looks, which is why I was surprised when I wanted everything from Jason Wu’s newest collection. His ultra-luxurious looks were incredibly feminine and delicate – think slipdresses, lace accents, low necklines, and tiered silhouettes. Every look was delicate and dreamy, but totally wearable. I’m planning to pair them with sneakers for day and heels for night. The ultimate in versatility.
A killer power suit is an essential in every working girls’ wardrobe. This season, sleek suits popped up in high-shine satins and silks, making them a little less structured and a whole lot cooler. Tom Ford and Cinq à Sept tapped into this trend just right.
