Boots and sweaters for now, sure. But the designers at New York Fashion Week had their eye on the next season, and wait ‘til you see what you’re going to be wearing in 2017. We put trend-spotter Sheridan Gregory, creator of the popular style blog, blueeyedfinch.com, in the middle of the action. Her Top Six Picks are here…
Florals popped up all over the runway, especially at the Rebecca Minkoff show, where they were playfully mixed with edgy prints. With everything focused on fall right now, it was so refreshing to see all those whimsical, pretty floral patterns,” reports Sheridan.
It’s not uncommon to see racks and racks of seersucker and lace in the warmer months, but you’re going to love the chiffon choices in every imaginable shape—dresses, tops, skirts, and more. According to Sheridan, these delicate pieces are light and airy, and often paired—no surprise here–with florals.
“Every single show I attended had models with gorgeously “messy” hair,” raves Sheridan of the natural ‘dos that came down the runways. The looks, which ranged from Boho braids to piece-y buns, were surprisingly flawless, though. (Translation: undone hair that’s thoughtfully and methodically styled/pulled apart/tousled to look carefree.) Best product to make that happen? Joico’s Hair Shake…perfect for adding texture and a casual finish.
In a nod to classic, retro style, our fashion-meister spied plenty of “clashing” prints on fashion-show attendees. Think: intense chevron stripes in green, fuchsia, and black… sunshine-yellow sundresses…and royal-blue pants strewn with 70’s-style stars.
Patterns and prints mixed with abandon called to mind Gypsy style…free-flowing fashion that was feminine, easy to wear, and—spoiler alert—available right now. “Rebecca Minkoff’s ‘see now, buy now’ feature to her collection was very interesting and effective. I definitely came across a few pieces that I wanted to purchase right off the runway.”
Pops of bold shadow paired with nude lips (to keep the look balanced) was a crowd favorite for spring; especially at the Tadashi Shoji fashion show, where beauty reigned supreme. Best part, says Sheridan? “This makeup look is completely wearable for everyday life!”
