The 5 Coolest Trends We’re Copying from New York Fashion Week

Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone, and in its wake, we're left to enjoy the glitz and glamour vicariously through countless Instagram posts of our favorite runway shows. And of course, we're gleaning style advice from all of them. Below, we analyzed this February's Fall 2019 shows into wearable trends—and detailed exactly how you can get the look for yourself now.

TREND: MONOCHROME

That’s right—we’re dressing head to toe in one color this season. At Sally LaPointe, models strutted down the runway in series of totally single-shade looks, from black and white to bolder lavender and red to the soft pistachio color shown below. Anna Sui pulled off a similar style, dressing models in a variety of monochromatic looks, complete with matching wigs, though her ensembles featured more pattern and texture than shown at LaPointe. To try the look for yourself, we recommend starting with a neutral palette or a soft pastel, like the blues featured here.

TREND: RAINBOW BRIGHTS

Despite that these February shows dictate looks for fall, designers didn’t stray away from palettes typically used in spring and summer. From Carolina Herrera to Prabal Gurung, rainbow colors abounded, and tie-dyed garments even made an appearance at the latter. Embrace the bold with the pieces below.

TREND: BALLOON SLEEVES

Extravagant details were everywhere this season, but our favorite was the plethora of poofy balloon sleeves (seen at Rodarte and Zimmerman), which add a dose of fun and whimsy to any outfit. Try the trend for yourself with the blouses and dress we picked here.

TREND: SATIN SLIPS

Though satin slip dresses and skirts aren’t a groundbreaking new fixture on the runways, they were staples in several designers’ shows this season, including Sies Marjan and Jonathan Simkhai. This is one of the most wearable trends in our opinion, so get on board with the buys below. Hint: layer the dress over a turtleneck to get you through the cold months.

TREND: BELTED SUITING

While loose, oversized styles dominated the runways the past few years, this season saw an uptick in cinched, belted numbers that better define the body (see examples from Tibi and Taoray Wang below). Go for a longer-line blazer or jacket, and then belt it in the middle of the waist to pull off the style.
