Find out more about the common points in the biggest collections in order to start organizing your fall looks before the new creations hit stores. Here are the biggest NY Fashion Week fall 2014 trends.
Plaids and Tartans
If you love plaids, you’re in luck, they’re a major trend for next fall. From tartans to buffalo checks, they’re the essential look for the autumn, whether they’re on coats, bottoms or jumpers.
Plaids dominated the runway in collections from Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone, Badgley Mischka and Thakoon. Other stunning checkered looks were spotted in the Preen and Creatures of Comfort collections.
Pink and Other Bright Colors
One of the biggest NY Fashion Week Fall 2014 trends is the perfect cure for winter blues. Pink has been a major trend for this spring and it’s moving on to the fall as well. You can also go for other vivid shades, including citrons and fuschsias.
The most colorful collections on the runway features coats and other pieces from designers like Prabal Gurung, Monique Lhuillier, Altuzarra and Alexander Wang.
Even though mini skirts have often made appearances in fall/winter collections, showing less skin is the way to go this year. If you’re into asymentrical hemlines, you’re truly lucky that you’ll be rocking your best midis this fall.
Midis came in all styles on the runway at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, in collections by designers like Rebecca Minkoff, Tory Burch and Victoria Beckham.
Overalls and Robe Coats
In the same vein of less skin is more, overalls are finally coming back on the runway, along with robe coats. One of the biggest NY Fashion Week fall 2014 trends is the modern version of overalls. Seen on the runway in collections by Jill Stuart, Adam Selman and Frame Denim, they’re sleek and sexy.
For inspiration when it comes to robe coats, the designers who rocked the trends the best include Richard Chai and Altuzarra.
Cashmere knits may be extremely sophisticated, but you don’t have to spend too much to get the look this fall.
From ponchos to turtlenecks and even dresses, Tommy Hilfiger, The Row and Rebecca Taylor showcased this trend the best on the runway.
Real fur is never fashionable, but faux fur trims and accents are one of the biggest NY Fashion Week fall 2014 trends. BCBG Max Azria, Adeam, Phillip Lim, and Nicolas K showed off stunning pieces with fur detailing, from coats to clutches.
From natural shades of shearling to bright colors for accent collars, there’s no limit to creativity in color when it comes to this fall’s trends.
Menswear Inspired Jackets and Pants
Pieces with heavy menswear influence have stood out on the runway. From jumpsuits and pants to coats and jackets with masculine lines, designers have showed their interest in adding a menswear twist to the fall/winter 2014 collections.
Leading the pack, Rag & Bone and Jason Wu have featured the most striking designs for fall with a touch of menswear.
The biggest thing in footwear among the NY Fashion Week Fall 2014 trends, mules are getting a modern facelift with exquisite details and edgy lines.
The backless footwear fits best with the furry accents trends, but they’re also showed up on the runway in other incarnations, including pointed toes and higher heels, in collections from Mara Hoffman, Alexander Wang and more.
Western influences have showed up in many high-end collections, including Chanel, but cowgirl hats seem like the easiest trend to rock this fall.
Featured in collections by Cushnie et Ochs, Dion Lee and Tibi, cowgirl hats are truly trendy in black.
When it comes to styling and beauty, gold seems to be emerging as the major player among many other fresh NY Fashion Week fall 2014 trends.
Featured in runway shows by Tadashi Shoji, Mara Hoffman and many more, gold works best in small details, from nails to braided hair with golden accents.
