Fall’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is one of the largest fashion events of the season bringing in thousands of designers, bloggers, media professionals and fashionistas from all over not only the country, but also the world. While all eyes are on the runway for what trends will be in style for the season, some of the designs can be over-the-top for everyday wear.
Here are ways that you can take some of this season’s runway trends and translate them into everyday street style:
Fringe was big on the runway this fall, seen in designer collections including DVF, Tory Burch, Altuzarra, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs. The tip for fringe is to not go overboard. While models on the runway may sport an all fringe dress with a fringe purse, fringe can be incorporated in small ways by picking one item like a shoe or a sweater that has fringe.
Designers like BCBG, Tibi and 3.1 Philip Lim all featured oversized trousers with a synched waist. This is an easy trend to incorporate into the everyday wardrobe. While Skinny pants may not be completely out of style, the bootleg/bellbottom style is definitely back in. Perhaps you have an old pair that is still living in your closet, pull them out and put them back to work. Synch the waist with a belt and stick to a solid color while pairing with a more tailored top. Keeping the top a tailored fit pairs well with the oversized style pant and won’t compete.
Lingerie During the Day
This look was seen on the runway for Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang, Givenchy, Tibi and Victoria Beckham. This trend can be intimidating, but consider layering when incorporating this trend into your street wardrobe. A silk and lace spaghetti strap would pair well with a pencil skirt and jacket for the office.
Ruffles may bring to mind images of Victorian portraits, but this season, designers like Derek Lam, Jason Woo, Oscar De La Renta, 3.1 Philip Lim and Tibi were rocking this style on the runway. Ruffles can easily become overwhelming so incorporating this style in small ways can create a more appropriate everyday look while still being on trend. Think pencil skirt with a layer or two of ruffles versus a five-layer ruffle collar or giant 80’s style ruffle sleeves.
