Fashion: 7 Trends to Try from Fall ’16 New York Fashion Week

Whether you’re a passionate fashion follower or just a casual fan, you probably know that yet another New York Fashion Week recently came to a close. With both up-and-coming and seasoned designers showing off their Fall ’16 collections, the runways were packed full of gorgeous models and glamorous clothes—so many, in fact, that it may have been tough to keep up with all the new trends seen at this year’s shows. That’s why we did it for you, narrowing down 7 trends you can pull off in real life starting right now. (P.S. You might just find a few of them in your next Style Edit.)

In the Style Department

Trend No. 1: Floral prints & appliques

Seen on the runway at: Christian Siriano, Delpozo, Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera

The trend: Super-feminine pieces decked out with budding prints and 3-D florals that add tons of texture and excitement to your everyday look.

How to wear it: Start small with applique detailing on a shirt or dress collar, or go full out with a style covered in pretty blooms. Keep accessories to a minimum—appliqués and bold prints add enough intrigue on their own.

Trend No. 2: Statement (Faux) Fur

Seen on the runway at: Altuzarra, J. Mendel, Ohne Titel

The trend: Classic brown, black, and gray may still be an essential, but this season, designers weren’t afraid to be adventurous with bold prints and bright colors in the fur department.

How to wear it: There’s no wrong way: Start small with a fur-trimmed coat in a vibrant hue, or pair a patterned faux-fur vest with skinnies and heeled boots.

Trend No. 3: Shoulder Cutouts

Seen on the runway at: Bibhu Mohapatra, Emilia Wickstead, Proenza Schouler

The trend: Skin-baring details that show off a surprisingly sultry part of your body in a still-chic way.

How to wear it: This style may be best for off-duty outifts—unless you’re covering up with a blazer or cardi at the office—but is practically made for date night. Try it on a top with skinny jeans and heels, or in the form of a dress (just stay away from super-short hemlines to keep it sophisticated).

Trend No. 4: Liquid-Silver Metallics

Seen on the runway at: Cushnie et Ochs, Narciso Rodriguez, Opening Ceremony

The trend: Edgy, alluring pieces drenched in a super-shiny, fluid shade of silver.

How to wear it: Try the it-color on a flowing piece like a midi skirt or slip dress, keeping it grounded with accessories in a neutral shade like black.

Trend No. 5: Super-Delicate Lace

Seen on the runway at: Rachel Zoe, Reem Acra, Jason Wu

The trend: Fine, ultra-sheer fabrics that deliver lots of romance and just the right amount of sex appeal.

How to wear it: Pair a silk button-down with a lace-overlay skirt for work, or dress up a pair of your favorite jeans and wide-leg pants with a lace-trimmed blouse.

Trend No. 6: Voluminous sleeves

Seen on the runway at: Jenny Packham, Lela Rose, Zimmermann

The trend: Sleek is out and billowing is in—think bell sleeves, ruffles, and peasant blouse detailing—with just one rule: the bigger, the better.

How to wear it: Stay sleek and slim on the bottom to balance out roomy detailing up top, and keep the rest of your look minimal (because sleeves this big are sure to make a statement).

Trend No. 7: Suede

Seen on the runway at: Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch

The trend: The classic ’70s fabric is back and looking better than ever, showing up in rich hues and sultry silhouettes on the fall runways.

How to wear it: Boots and heels are always a smart place to start, while suede midi skirts will be a huge hit this year (pair one with a white button-down and lace-up heels for an office-friendly look)
