With New York Fashion Week wrapping up and Milan Fashion Week in full swing, there are some awesome trends that you can take from runway to everyday this season.
A bold red is always in style because it always makes a statement, but this fashion week took things to another level. With Max Mara, Proenza Schouler and Oscar de la Renta leading the way, the runway was a sea of red this season. Wearing a luxe red velvet dress or even a pair of simple red pumps is guaranteed to boost your confidence levels five times over. Looking to amp things up even more? Drape yourself from head to toe in different shades of red – from crimson to garnet – to really turn heads when walking into a room.
Alexander Wang proved on the runway that a little androgyny never hurt anyone. Go on and dig into your Grandpa’s closet for an old jacket and rock those shoulder pads with a pair of classy high-heeled booties. However, be aware of proportions. Even though you might be wearing your grandpa’s blazer, you don’t want to look like a kid playing dressing up. Loose on top means either short or tight on bottom.
Many people hear the words “fishnet tights” and immediately shy away, but with designers like Jeremy Scott and Jason Wu pairing their clothes with these scandalous tights, fishnets are becoming the next big thing for all those “It Girls” out there. Pair your tights with a girlish dress or bright psychedelic hues to create the perfect balance between sweet and sexy.
Whatever you believe in, whomever you support, politically charged call-to-action slogans are the way to go this season. Designers like Prabal Gurung and Public School used their clothes to speak their minds on the runways. T-shirts bearing the phrase “Nevertheless, she persisted” and red ball caps with the phrase “Make America New York” stitched on the front were just a few of the protest pieces from the runway. Whether it’s DIY or store bought, fashion has the power to make a difference. Be a part of the change.
