We’re only halfway through fashion week, but we
thought we’d start recapping some of the big trends we’ve been seeing
over and over again:
few other trends we’re seeing popping up are shearling, tie-neck and
tie-waist garments, and sweaterdresses. Bows, cardigans, bermudas,
trenchcoats, cropped styles, and waist emphasis all continue from
Voluminous Sleeves: Sometimes it’s just a puff at the shoulder, but we’ve also seen some leg of mutton sleeves out there.
Twinkle, Diane Von Furstenberg, Alice Roi, Doo Ri, Three As Four
Bubble Skirts: Cute skirts with gathered fabric
at the bottom. They look nice on models, but not as good on short
people like me.
Badgley Mischka, Doo Ri, Twinkle, United Bamboo
And for accessories…
Long (up to elbow-length!) gloves: You too can look like you’re going to the opera when you’re actually just going to the mall!
Lacoste, Nicole Miller, Diane Von Furstenberg, Badgley Mischka, Alice Roi, Doo Ri
Leggings and Tights: Good for layering, but watch what you put over them. Oh and let’s not do the 1980s again. Please?
Rachel Comey, Twinkle, Yigal Azrouel
"Handmade" knitted scarves: As Dino would say, "just like grandma used to make."
Tomer, John Bartlett, Twinkle.
