New York Fashion Week Recap

I know we are in the midst of the frenzy that is fall fashion, but you know, we fashion-types are always looking at what’s ahead, what’s next.. What’s ahead is actually what’s already happened. Designers are still having a love affair with the 90’s. This season, they’ve decided to bring in the 70’s to create a threesome of relaxed, soft silhouettes.

There was the sophistication of the minimalist 90’s mixed with some of the great 70’s elements like flouncy, tiered skirts, low-slung belts, and peasant blouses.Kors3 Kors4

The color palette was minimalist 90’s at it’s best. Primarily black and white with pops of red, and sometimes blue. Beige also made up a good percentage of the palette, while some designers offered up icy pastels, as well.

We were treated to boxy, cropped tops and jackets. The midi skirt is still having a moment, but the car-wash skirt (think multiple strips of fabric swaying to and fro) is a new addition.  The skinny jean is a distant memory, with pants still enjoying loose and cropped cuts. Floral prints are back but in a more modern way.
