NYFW Recap

by Linoya


New York Fashion Week came to an end, and as I followed all of my favorite designers I recognized a pattern of the most stand-out trends that are going to be with us in the next Spring/Summer seasons. The featured designers are so beyond inspiring, and they are the real trend-setters of the fashion industry. So without further ado, here are the most featured trends of NYFW of S/S 2017! 

Satin Fabrics

Silk and satin came in all forms and colors this season. Whether the luxurious fabric was paired with chunky knits or with lace, it always looked good no matter what! 

Lace-up is Here to Stay

We are all big fans of the beyond amazing invention that is called lace-up. I personally love lace-up pieces because they upgrade your entire look and make the most casual outfit stand out! This season designers made a stamp that it is going to be with us for much longer, luckily for us! 

Asymmetrical pieces 

One thing I spotted both in street style and on the runway is asymmetrical pieces. We are at a stage of experimenting in fashion--we want to break the conventional rules and always stand out, so what's a better way to do it than wearing a stunning asymmetrical top or skirt?! 

Pleated, Pleated, Pleated

Let me tell you something, pleated was seen ALL OVER NYFW this season. Every single designer, no exceptions, incorporated a pleated something in their collection! I am personally a big fan of pleated and flowy items, they create such a good contrast and upgrade any outfit!  

Flowy Fabrics

This is probably one of my favorite trends that I've seen on the runway this season. Flowy fabrics and silhouettes are everything if you're asking me, I just can't get enough of it! Flowy pants, flowy skirts, dresses, shirts, you can find then all in my closet! I especially love that the whole bell-sleeve trend is really making a statement this season and the unconventional longer sleeves. Let me stand out! Love it! 

Metallic

If there's anything I'm obsessed with it's silver, gold, rose gold, GLITTER, and anything in between. I couldn't be happier about the fact that metallic fabrics are actually becoming a thing. Some may say alien, I say chic. 

Lace

Lace, oh, lace... What else is new??? Lace was on the runway non-stop this season, and with good reason. Women who embrace themselves to the fullest should not be afraid to show a bit more skin, and I think lace is super sexy and flattering! Love it!

See-through and Tulle

Ballerina-style tulle is literally a street style trend now. Speaking of flowy, there is nothing that catches the wind better than a thin layer of tulle! Speaking of sexy, by the way! See-throughs are gorgeous when worn subtly. I loved seeing all the unique designs on the runways, and you can easily find them in all fast-fashion stores by now!  

Velvet

Last and not least, and probably one of the biggest stars of fashion week. Velvet is apparently one of the favorite fabrics of the season! I like it, but I just like it if you know what I mean... I'm not too crazy for it. I remember last year I went to Zara and found these awesome velvet ankle boots. About one month later, they were still there... Extremely rare case in fast fashion! If those same boots were there today, they would be fought over by some fashionista girls who want to have the latest trend, and they want it first! What I'm trying to say is, you wouldn't find me in a velvet dress, but you sure will find me in leather boots! I'm already eyeing Stuart Weizeman's velvet over the knee boots which are to die for!!!
