Two’s company but three’s a crowd but when it comes to fashion!
Maybe in the case of lovers, three can be a crowd, but in the fashion industry threes are a key element in creating a trend. Fashion trends are constantly evolving and developing, which is why we aren’t still running around wearing a bunch of leaves (thankfully).
Fashion trends nowadays are established on the catwalk and with the help of social media, the more we see a certain trend on the runway means the chances of it transforming itself into a trend. At this year’s New York Fashion Week, we saw some styles that kept repeating themselves from different designers. We still can’t predict whether they will stick but the chances you will be seeing these trends again are very probable.
Keep scrolling to see some of the hottest trends of the New York Fashion Week 2020 that didn’t just pop up once or twice but more than three times, proving that three’s NOT a crowd.
Veil Me Pretty
There was a prominent bridal theme at this year’s fashion show, especially by taking a romantic veil out of the wedding scene and combining it with our everyday street wear. We adored how Christopher John Rogers played up his striking fuchsia gown with a pale pink veil. The designer, Tory Brock added a touch of mystery to his vintage dress suit with a tulle veil. However, Carolina Herrera wasn’t as adventurous to step away from the wedding gown theme with laced veil.
A bouquet of flowers
Subtle floral prints that resemble a wearable piece of work of art. These delicate floral portraits are a huge improvement on the tacky bohemian maxi dresses from the last few years. Carolina Herrera’s black and white rose envisioned a snow princess. Tory Burch created a dress suitable for a fairytale. Adam Lippes created a dress that visualizes a Japanese garden that we want to order now!
What woman doesn’t want to make a statement? Well, this year it will be possible with a billowy cape that flows behind you as you walk into a room. Brandon Maxwell, along with designers Carolina Herrera and Jason Wu want to empower you this year by transforming you into a caped crusader.
Get your Glitz on
Last year was all about bland beige neutrals and this year about sequins, glamour and a heavy dose of glimmer. Tom Ford and Brandon Maxwell want to bring back the era of glam and dance with their shimmering styles this year.
Finally, that stuffy blazer is going to be replaced with something a little more carefree and less tailored. It appears that our beloved bohemian look is making a comeback with ponchos this year. The poncho made more than three appearances at this year’s New York Fashion Week but our favorites were by Gabriela Hearst, Zimmermann and Longchamp.
Dazzling white gowns
Bridal designers are finally stepping away from stuffy designs that nobody feels comfortable wearing. Brandon Maxwell created a masterpiece with his off the shoulders gown with a bandeau top and cape. Tom Ford gave us a more risqué style that resembles an ethereal angelic appearance. Khaite’s design was our overall favorite.
