New York Fashion Week Through the Eyes of DC Bloggers

One trend they all agree on: Fringe is here to stay.

Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week wraps up tomorrow, which means that for the past week, Washington has been devoid of many of its faithful style bloggers. Shop Around caught up with a few of those who made the trip up to a frigid, snowy New York to get their take on trends and collections they’re loving.

“My favorite looks for the cooler months are always a black/gray/white palette that play with texture. This was seen a lot in different shows: Rebecca Minkoff, Noon by Noor, Lacoste, Mark and Estel, Banana (their first Fashion Week presentation ever). Fringe is also coming back in a big way. Rebecca Minkoff played with it extremely well in her fall/winter 2015 collection, and I can’t wait to get my hands on one of her camel suede fringe jackets!”

“I loved Nicholas K—it speaks to my edgy side with lots of leather detailing and moody colors. Faux fur is back in a big way for fall and winter 2015. This has been a favorite of mine for the past few seasons, but now we’re seeing different colors, textures, and patterns incorporated into it as well. Think the 1960s and ’70s, which seemed to inspire many of the collections. You can also expect to see lots of black and white with pops of deep pinks, purples, and reds.”

“We saw a ton of the minimalist trend on the runways, which we are huge fans of. We also saw tons of fur jackets and stoles, pieces with ’70s vibes, Victorian blouses, and over-the-knee boots. It looks like fringe is sticking around for at least one more season, as it pretty much showed up in every show. Metallic bomber jackets were huge, and monochromatic ensembles were popular yet again.”

“During a freezing Fashion Week, designers like Tadashi Shoji and Alice + Olivia brought some excitement and royal opulence to the tents.”
