First half of NYFW

New York Fashion Week is here!

Keeping up with all the shows seems to be a 24 hour job, whether you’re following them via the Instagram or Snapchat of your favorite blogger, continuously refreshing Fashionista, or even attending the shows yourself!

Fall/Winter will be all about those rich tones and fabrics. I noticed a lot of deep colors, specifically blues, black, fuchsias, and reds. I read one color described as “merlot” which I thought was accurate, so add merlot to the color palette as well. However just as these rich colors were popping up, so were a spectrum of nudes. A variety of nudes in your closet will be necessary as a nice contrast to those classic fall colors.
In addition these colors were presented on sturdy fabrics like velvet, leather, and suede. Fur accents were making an appearance as well, most notably on sleeves and collars. Many attendees were wearing full fur coats, mimicking the runway trend with one sleeve off the shoulder.

As far as beauty goes there was glitter everywhere. Big stamp of approval from me on this, sparkles are not just for the holiday season anymore people!! Trendy glitter tears appeared, along with a ton of silvery eye makeup. Metallic makeup in contrast to those rich colors and fabrics is going to be a go-to look. The coolest beauty look I saw was definitely Opening Ceremony’s glitter contour, which made #3 in Vogue’s article “10 Beauty Trends That Blew Up at New York Fashion Shows This Weekend”.
