NYFW 2018: Key Trends
posted by Urvi Mehta
New York Fashion Week has come to an end. I saw Prabal Gurung and Christian Cowan’s shows and volunteered as a brand ambassador with The Daily Front Row. I had a blast because I witnessed street style, celebrity style and all the effort that goes into making fashion week a success. From my observations, I put together a guide of key trends that were everywhere at NYFW, go ahead and jump on the bandwagon!
For the guys:
Athleisure is the mother of all trends for Spring 2018. Every designer is molding their ideas into comfort-driven clothing: track pants, hoodies and minimal, classy sneakers.
This season, more is more. I saw color blocking, loud prints and graphic patterns in bold colors in designer’s collections across the board. If you’re not someone that can pull off multiple trends in one outfit, take inspiration by wearing a colorful jacket or bag.
My favorite spring trend from NYFW are ‘technical jackets’. They look like they came straight out of a sci-fi movie. 2018 is all about big hoodies, parkas and rain jackets in metallic colors and of course, technical fabrics.
For the Girls:
Girls, going subtle is clearly last season. This season is all about bright, pops of color. The two colors that seem to be favorites, on the runway and off – fuchsia pink and orange. Yes, you read that right! I saw various combinations and versions but everyone seems to be adding pink to their wardrobe and it looks oh so gorgeous!
For outerwear, big fur coats (faux-fur please!) have become the go-to statement making trend. If the fur is colored, even better. Cheetah print has also made a huge comeback and I’m not joking when I say every fourth person that walked past was sporting something in the cheetah print. Another print that is really popular is plaid - so much sophistication and effortless class.
I always keep the best for the last and I think the biggest and the most amazing trend that I’m definitely embracing is The Suit. Yes, women are opting for the two-piece suit look in either tracksuit style or the classic tailored style and I have honestly fallen hard for this one. If there’s one trend to try out, make it this one!
