From big statement coats to the newest iteration—stoles in varying lengths and patterns—fur joins ranks with '70s styling as one of the most prevalent trends at NYFW. We saw gorgeous versions of the look at Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera and Prabal Gurung.
The majority of the shows this season referenced the '70s in one way or another—whether it was with classic silhouettes from the time, with a palette of brown and other earthy tones, with fringe or with flared pants. We spotted the trend at BCBG Max Azria,Diane von Furstenberg and Karen Walker, among others.
. Not-Your-Average Tights
We often think of them as boring, necessary winter wear but designers had fun with tights this year, infusing them with pattern and shine. We spotted stylish hosiery on the runways at Tommy Hilfiger, Rodarte and Proenza Schouler.
This always-popular fall pattern made another strong appearance at Fashion Week this year. We saw plaids in varying shades at Costello Tagliapietra, Saunder and Coach.
A surprising color choice on the fall runways was pink. From sherbet to blush and mauve, we saw pink tones at Zimmermann,Tome and Cushnie et Ochs.
Fringe continued to have a presence on runways after making a big splash last September at the spring shows. We spotted it at Zero + Maria Cornejo,Marchesa and Adeam, among others.
Orange is a traditional fall color but this season's shows saw it in varying shades from melon to tangerine. Naeem Khan, Prabal Gurung and Jenny Packham all sent the hue down their runways.Feathers
In addition to fringe, feathers were a popular, luxe addition to the styles on the runway. We saw them at Lela Rose, Marchesa and Prabal Gurung .
Urban gothic themes dominated the Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Rodebje runways with leather, huge platform shoes and edgy silhouettes.
Balancing out the gothic feeling on some runways was over-the-top glamour on others. We saw sparkling sequins, 3D embellishments and lots of glitter at several shows, including Altuzarra, Monique Lhuillier and Delpozo.
Edwardian Era Touches
Lace accents, high collars and cinched waists harkened back to the dominant styles of the Belle Époque era. We saw these looks atMonique Lhuillier, Reem Acra and Cynthia Rowley.
