Unfortunately, New York Fashion Week has come to a close but we at Couture Collegiate are so excited to try out all the new trends that hit the runway. J. Mendel, Calvin Klein, Marchesa and many other designers premiered their new Fall/Winter lines.
Even though spring is hopefully approaching soon, we are looking ahead to the trends we will get to try this coming fall. Crochet and knit tops, solid colors and 90’s necklines were just some of the new trends that were featured.
Obviously, as college students we can’t afford the runway fashions because of our budget. But there are ways to adapt what we see at NYFW and make it our own, and isn’t that the entire point of fashion? So we’re going to do our best in guiding you to be the most stylish girl on your campus!
Even though every designer’s line is different, there are several fashion staples that overlap. Some of the staples this year included, layering of sweaters, thigh high boots, high necklines and the colors black and white. Not only are these styles new but they won’t fade over time and you will be able to transition them to the following fall.
Designers like BCBG Max Azria and Vera Wang frequented the colors black and white. Black and white is easy to find in trendy clothing stores everywhere, as well as being timeless pieces instead of just-on-trend prints. Online stores like Brandy Melville are great for finding cheaper clothes and the majority of their clothing comes in black and white!
The designs for DKNY and BCBG had heavy layering with knits, but what shocked us was the use of thigh high boots on several different models. Not only did BCBG use the tall boots but designers Rebecca Taylor and Alice + Olivia did as well.
Thigh high boots are great with skinny jeans, skirts and even leggings. They can pull an entire look together.
The final trend that we felt was appropriate for all you fashionistas to pay attention to is the use of the Bohemian trend. All though Bohemian is not a new style, not many people venture out of their comfort zone to try it. This fall is your time to try something new! Designer Rebecca Minkoff’s line had several different ways to pull off Bohemian as well as Rebecca Taylor’s line.
