Another New York Fashion Week has come again! With it, we have a slew of new trends to play with and garner inspirationfrom. As always, I can never wait until these trends are in production to start finding ways to take the runway into my everyday looks. Read on to learn and shop my three favorite trends from NYFW S/S 2024:
I have always thought sparkles should be considered a neutral and I’m so glad the NYFW runways agree! The always-glamorous Carolina Herrera made a case for pairing tailored pieces with sequins. Your party-ready pieces don’t have to wait for nighttime anymore. Play with contrasting textures, like chunky sweaters with sparkly bottoms, or go for a slightly more subtle version of the trend by elevating your everyday underpinnings with hints of glitz.
Big Belt Energy
Belts have never been “out” in my opinion. Take cues from Michael Kors and Sergio Hudson by opting for statement beltswith architectural hardware and wider bands. Adding a belt is the easiest way to make an old dress new again, as it totally changes the silhouette of an outfit! To style with belts the runway way, go for a monochromatic ensemble.
Ever since the 2023 Met Gala paid homage to Karl Lagerfeld on the first Monday in May, big and beautiful rosettes have been everywhere. While some designers continued to give these flowers the red-carpet treatment, Ulla Johnson and Paloma Spain took a quieter approach. The best part about this trend is how easy (and cost-friendly!) it is to try – if you don’t want to own a petal-powered garment quite yet, consider adding a brooch to an everyday look. One of New York’s best-kept secrets is M&S Schmalberg in the Garment District, which has been specializing in custom fabric flowers since 1916. The best news? If you can’t make the trek, they now sell on Etsy!
