Recreate the Best Looks from the New York Fashion Week Spring ’19 Shows
It’s an understatement to say that we were inspired by the New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 shows — in fact, we were so inspired that we couldn’t wait until spring to start trying out the new trends. To get a head start on what everyone will be wearing next year, we scoured stores for current pieces that captured the essence of the collections we loved. Below, the best of last week’s runway fashion, plus the looks you can buy today.

This behind-the-scenes shot from Anna Sui’s wanderlust-themed spring collection has us wanting to pile on prints and layers galore. Sui’s escapist influence was expressed through sporty jackets, sneakers, fanny packs, bucket hats, and dresses, all done up in transcendental jewel-toned brocade weaves that dressed up the casual styles. Try the look yourself by pairing a luxe jacquard (like the ruffled Topshop blouse below) with unassuming accessories (like this perfect-for-fall corduroy bucket hat from Urban Outfitters).
We’re reaching for patchwork and pantsuits after checking out Zimmerman’s ‘70s-inspired collection. These looks embodied the paisleys, scallops, Western details, and quintessential mustard color of the decade, complete with lots of belts and button details that remind us of the era. Find the style in stores now with this Farrow jumpsuit (the details are spot-on!) and this cut-out cotton crop-top from Miguelina.

We’re eager to start flaunting the luxurious Americana classics presented at Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary show, including timeless denim, trousers, plaid shirts, and colorful knits. Recreate the cool multi-layered look shown in the third slide of this Instagram post by pairing checkered trousers with colorful turtlenecks, sweaters, and lots of jackets—apparently, one is not enough. Sounds about right for late fall in NYC!

Tibi’s spring show was all about boxy silhouettes and pastels, with lots of workwear looks that would be perfect for the office. While we might skip out on the suit-plus-flip-flops ensemble that creative director Amy Smilovic sent down the runway more than once, we’re all for sporting the outfit shown in this post. Simply combine the below Eileen Fisher silk tank dress with the white Mango ankle booties, throw a matching sweatshirt on top, and you’re good to go.
At Rodarte, modeled oozed daydreams and whimsy. Think tulle, ruffles, tiny polka dots, flowers in hair, and oh yeah—more tulle. The fit-for-a-princess show is easy to take inspiration from, as long as we’re able to tone it down a bit. Check out the dotted Reformation top and demure pink Lee Mathews dress below for ideas to get you in the spirit.
MARYAM NASSIR ZADEH
No one does cool like Maryam Nassir Zadeh. For this collection, she merged her New York self with her vacation self, styling plenty of swimsuits with street clothes to achieve the full effect. The collection also showed off bright colors, playful accessories, and funky bike shorts, as seen in this capture. If you’re not comfortable donning the spandex outside of the gym just yet, channel the ruffles and bright bralettes instead.
The desert-inspired Coach 1941 show reveled in prairie skirts, Western-looking denim, and lots of fringe. We love the detail shot below that emphasizes the contrast of heavy and light—the delicate floral skirt unexpectedly complementing the chunky sweater. Try the pairing on your own with this sweet ruffled dress and distressed knit, both from H&M.
Romantic frocks and artisanal accessories that emphasized true craft were the strong points of Ulla Johnson’s collection. With unique prints and ethereal silhouettes, Johnson created a show that was both bold and beautiful. Channel the same vibe with a satin dress and colorful straw bag like the ones below.

Carolina Herrera mastered the art of print-mixing with her spring show. Between the plaids, polka dots, and bounties of florals—nearly all in rainbow brights—the collection contained something for everyone. Her weightless flowered dresses and skirts screamed springtime, but you can start mixing prints now to hold you over until then. This Anthropologie skirt will do the trick, and if it doesn’t, proceed to the tiny florals with these J. Crew earrings instead.
