This is one of the first seasons in a while that I've been actively watching + recapping all of the fashion week shows, and man does it feel good. Since I couldn't be there in person I have been checking style.com's feed religiously, following all my fashionista friends on instagram, and pinning all of my favorite fashion week looks.
One of my favorite things to my favorite things to do is spot the trends that I see cutting through among all of the shows. I love being able to find the common thread that's woven throughout the designers' collections and later in the season- show how to make those trends work for your own personal style.
I promise a few more recaps to come- but wanted to highlight a few of the early trends I saw emerging at NYFW- fire engine red, surfer girl style, pale pink, matchy matchy & keyhole cutouts.
I am obsessed with this bold, bright red hue- it screams for attention and oozes glamour.
Loving this sophisticated take on surfer girl- encompassing silky, colorful hawaiian prints, wetsuit neoprene materials & surfboard stripe details & touristy tees with "aloha" & hang loose hands.
This pale pink shade is super feminine, but doesn't read little girl because the color is used in bold silhouettes- body con strapless dresses, oversized peplums & tulip skirts, or embellished.
Whether a cutout keyhole or cris-cross straps on the front of a dress- tiny hints of exposed skin are in (lots of exposed skin in crop top form are also trending- but I'll save that for another post ;). A dress doesn't have to be obscenely short or have a plunging neckline to be a little bit seductive!
Matching pieces are majorly trending for SS14, whether it's matching your crop top to your jacket or bottoms or having a modern take on a suit with coordinating jacket + shorts. The key is to pick two patterned pieces that coordinate to avoid looking like you're going into the office.
Which trends are you seeing on the runways so far, or which is your favorite?
