5 Trends from NYC Fashion Week: Fall 2015

NYC Fashion Week just kicked off, but it’s never too early to start trend forecasting!

I scanned looks from the hottest designers to debut (thus far) and found five amazing pieces everyone will be wearing come Fall 2015.

Don’t wait for the herd to catch on; jump on these trends now!

1. Tome: Vinyl

Plastic is about to be everything. Models sporting shiny, vinyl miniskirts dazzled onlookers at Tome’s Fall 2015 Fashion Show. Once reserved for cheap flooring and records (RIP), vinyl looks sleek and futuristic paired with leather or lightweight knitwear.

2. Alexander Wang: Silver Buttons

Delicate, glittering silver accents made a striking contrast to Alexander Wang’s black-on-black Fall 2015 Collection. Silver is already making a massive comeback in jewelry, but the rows of silver buttons Wang added to tough biker chic jackets made is clear that silver is the new it embellishment.

3. Rag & Bone: Lacy Camisoles

In the early 2000s, I had an entire drawer of lacy camisole tops that I paired with everything and anything. Rag & Bone brought that middle school staple back to life at Fall 2015 fashion week. Worn over lengthy, gauzy t-shirts and paired with pencil skirts, the silky lace camisoles felt simultaneously fresh and classic. If you’re not ready for the cami version, Rag & Bone also showed a delightful slip dress with similar lace accents.

4. Rodarte: Asymmetrical Leather Minis

Leather + Asymmetry = Razor Sharp Edge. The dynamic duo at Rodarte dazzled the fashion world yet again at New York Fashion Week: 2015. Inspired by avian migration, or  “leaving the city to a more pastoral place,” as Laura Mulleavy put it, the collection conveyed whimsy and strength. Party girls and fashionistas across the globe will delight in the feisty sex appeal of an asymmetrical leather miniskirt.

5. Thom Browne: Netted Veils

thomThom Browne’s mafia-inspired Fall 2015 Collection was a magnificently melancholy triumph for the young designer. Each outfit demonstrated the power of mixing textures while remaining true to the show’s story arc. I was smitten with the ebony netted veils that subtly shielded the models faces. Bold? Yes. But trend setting means taking risks, and veils add nostalgic romance to any outfit.

Michelle Obama Inaugural Fashion

 

 

 

Michelle Obama kicked off the day of President Obama’s second inauguration in style! She wore a custom-fitted Thom Browne checkered coat and dress with a beautiful beaded belt and Reed Krakoff shoes. When asked about his designs for the first lady, Browne said, “I wanted her to feel good in it and to feel comfortable, strong, feminine and beautiful.” Browne is mainly known for his tailored suiting and menswear clothing, and you can see the menswear inspired details in her coat! Mrs. Obama has become a true style icon, and her immense respect for those in the fashion community has made many designers today household names!

Jason Wu Sketch of Dress

 

When it comes to making brilliant and daring fashion choices, Michelle Obama always knocks it out of the park and manages to exceed all of our high expectations! She looked like royalty in this ruby red Jason Wu creation with Jimmy Choo heels and a Kimberly McDonald ring. This is the second time that Michelle Obama has worn Jason Wu for the inauguration, and we love how his designs fit and flatter our First Lady (and like we always say, why fix what’s not broken?) The style of this dress is also very flattering, and the halter-style cut beautifully showcases Mrs. Obama’s sculpted arms. Mrs. Obama was also sporting a fabulous new ‘do, and we love her bangs and youthful haircut. It is incredible how one hairstyle can truly make or break an outfit, and we think Mrs. Obama’s new look completely flatters her personality and also worked well with her gown. It is important to remember how the power of one haircut can greatly influence your overall look and style!
