The ongoing New York Fashion Week reinforces more popular styles than bringing in newUpdated: Sep 12, 2013 15:09 IST
Some trends have been around for a while now, and if designers participating in New York Fashion Week (on till September 12) are to be believed, they are going to be around for a bit longer.
While Zac Posen had some magnificent ruffles and 3.1 Philip Lim showed a fresh take on futuristic dressing, there was plenty of neon clothing, thigh-high slits and ombre gowns. Baring one’s midriff still remains a rage though, thankfully, we saw ways of doing so other than the favourite crop top.
Sheer accents too were all over the place — in necklines, as skirts over trousers, and underneath exquisite embroidery. Here’s a round-up.
Neon is still on
Arguably the biggest proponent of electric yellows and blues was Kate Spade, with everything from tops and dresses to bags, shoes and visors in neon. The label Honor didn’t go crazy with it, but we loved this top (inset) at their show.
Sporty does it
Sportswear with a luxe vibe is very much in. Victoria Beckham led the team with glamorous tennis dresses while Tommy Hilfiger had zippered dresses and swimsuits. Kenneth Cole had pantsuits with a street vibe and even Y-3 showed sporty silhouettes.
This trend just refuses to fade. Every second designer had sheer in some form — Lacoste with daring dresses for the skinny, Carolina Herrera with tulle skirts over printed trousers, Jason Wu with sheer panels in his dresses and the likes of KaufmanFranco and BCBG Max Azria also endorsing it strongly.
Crop tops have been a rage for a couple of seasons now. Fashionistas may be getting bored of them, but other ways to bare their midriffs are finally here. We loved Derek Lam’s drop waist skirt and the sheer-opaque combinations at 3.1 Philip Lim.
