One of the things I love most about Fashion Week (here and overseas) is the major wardrobe inspiration it provides. I’ve often walked away with many an idea for an outfit or trend to watch out for and it’s great for breaking myself out of a wardrobe rut. New York Fashion Week as per usual has been an eventful few days from models fainting at the Yeezy show to Gigi Hadid’s collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger but without a doubt it always comes back to the fashion and these are six looks I particularly loved…
Victoria Beckham: Pleating
Victoria Beckham has for the last few seasons been the go-to for a sexy wiggle dress but this season her show seemed to take on a more relaxed vibe. There was even some green crushed velvet thrown into the mix! What I loved most from her show however were the pleated skirts. I can imagine this working back with either a crisp white shirt or a cami for a work function or cocktails with the girls.
Ruffles will without a doubt be a major trend to watch out for but this gorgeous floral look from Altuzzara has me wanting to adopt a bit of frill into my wardrobe. Prepare to see ruffles on everything from dresses to shirts.
Proenza Schouler: Crossover detailing
Proenza Schouler’s show incorporated a lot of crossover detailing which added a great point of interest on most of the looks it sent down the runway. I loved this look as it seems to be an evolution of the current off the shoulder trend but with a little more structure.
Red Valentino: Scallop detailing
I’ve always found scallop detailing quite adorable and they seem to have made a comeback in swimwear but this look from Red Valentino’s presentation shows that they’ll be infiltrating a garment near you. I love the sheer detailing, too.
Alexander Wang: Deconstructed shirting
Alexander Wang’s shows are usually quite boundary-pushing and this take on traditional shirting really took the conservative office wardrobe staple into edgier territory. I love a pinstripe shirt but when its reincarnated into something with a slightly more deconstructed feel it all of a sudden feels a lot more modern and fresh.
Jason Wu: Cold shoulder
I’m always on the look out for dresses I can wear to the races or big events so this look by Jason Wu really stuck with me. I loved the shoulder cut out detail topped with ruffled trim. In a navy, this dress ventures into more classic dressing territory but its finishing touches still help to maintain its slight romantic meets sexy feel.
