What to wear now? Look at the New York Fashion Week Fall 2016 runway to tweak your chic

New York Fashion Week Fall 2016- How To Incorporate The Top Five Trends Into Your Wardrobe Now

There are a couple of ways to look at Fashion Week. You could go crazy wild with a total shift of silhouettes or you could find familiar shapes tweaked into something fresh yet not quite a dramatic shift from what you may already own.

I like the latter.

Because it proves that fashion isn’t a one season wonder and that you can morph, adapt, and renew pieces that you already own. Just add a few new ingredients and you’re good to go.  I’ll pass it to Naveed to tell you how…


The Top Five Trends from New York Fashion Week to consider right now for an instant update to many of your go-to looks.

Judging by the amount of variety on the runways around NYC, it appears as though everyone ignored Pantone’s color of the year – an ambiguous pale pink. And that’s fine by us as what was on hand boasted a sense of individuality not often seen.

What’s more is that designers seemed to be just as confused as us by both unpredictable weather and clothes hitting shops far too soon come the new season. Often, looks had a year-round, versatile wearability that’s certain to ensure you get the most for your buck.

Make it yours: From blown up plaids to Prince of Whales checks, winter’s classic print was made modern with updated silhouettes, and clever placements. Whether you go bold or go demure, keep the shape modern with asymmetry and interesting shapes.

Bell Sleeves-

Make it yours: While many a label has been offering pumped up, leg of mutton sleeves and the hard to wear ilk, the playful allure of a standby bell sleeve had us thinking about how placing volume in unexpected areas can be pure fun. Go as wide as you want, just be sure to look for neutrals as a print or groovy hue will take you all the way back to 1974.

White Out Winter-

Make it yours: Go clean and ditch that ‘no white after labour day’ clause as winter whites help you stand out amidst cold weather blacks & grays. The trick here is to look for textures and textiles that will stand up to the season’s chilly climates. If it looks warm – you’ll never look out of place.

Sculptural separates-

Make it yours: Often asymmetrical and billowing, sculptural separates made a case for individual style while keeping the eye focused on the unexpected. We say go for it, just be sure that a fold, a hit of volume, or a sash here & there work with your body. Otherwise, you’ll be wearing something on trend that will set your body way back.

Make it yours: You might have worn them before, say 20 years ago?!? But, dare we say, culottes make sense for now as they keep you looking leaner & longer, look great with high boots & layers, and help you stand out from the sea of skinny jean zombies. What’s to lose?
