New York Fashion Week 2014: 5 top trends that rocked the runway

When it comes to fashion, the tried-and-tested styles of the past always work. And that is exactly what designers during the recently concluded New York Fashion Week showcased. Of course, a few features were added to make the look more modern.

Here’s a sample of the trends you will see come spring:

  • Pastels everywhere – The runway features colors such as pale pink, powder blue, sunshine yellow and citrine. Other designers opted for a base of muted hues then added warmer tones. Perhaps as a homage to Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014, Radiant Orchid, purple was a major feature during the eight days of Fashion Week – in different shades in fact.

  • Homage to nature – References to the outdoors were aplenty, especially when it came to the prints. Florals and leafy designs were highlights on darker fabrics.
  • Bare your shoulders – Whether it be dresses or tops, come spring, sexy will mean leaving one shoulder exposed.
  • Gingham is back – Throwbacks are in, and one of the designs to leap across timeline is gingham. It’s very retro and it was present in many major shows. Colors ranged from the always sophisticated black and white to sweet-looking pastels.
  • The longer the better – Hemlines at this September’s New York Fashion Week skewed longer – grazing the knee or sweeping the floor. However, this doesn’t mean the designs didn’t come with features that changed up the look. Sheer fabrics were used and some designs had slits that ran up to the thighs.

September’s New York Fashion Week was a showcase by some of the top names in the fashion industry of what styles would be like come spring 2015. And in true nature to fashion, designers proved that some old styles never seem to die.
