NYFW: Trend forecast

We wanted to share some of the upcoming trends we think will come out of NYFW. 

#1. Sporty Chic: The runway was full of different designs that incorporated athletic pieces with feminine silhouettes. We saw sporty separates such as mesh T-shirts and cropped pants, as well as loose fitting tops and jackets that had a very relaxed feel to them.

#2. Flower Power: As to be expected for Spring, designers sent down the runway a parade of different patterns and textures of floral prints. However, it wasn't just the usual pretty floral patterns that we're used to seeing. We loved how Cynthia Rowley used this print in a way that had an almost mysterious feel to it by distorting the floral designs.

#3. Pretty Peplums: We LOVE a good, structured peplum. So we were super excited to see all the different versions of this fun detail throughout NYFW. Wether it was flowy, patterned, textured, or rigid, the peplum was definitely a notable trend that will for sure take the fashion world by storm.

#4. Futuristic: Not only were trends of the future strutting down the runways, you could literally see the futuristic elements in some of the pieces. From shiny, metallic fabrics to structured silhouettes, a handful of designers chose to predict the future with their cutting edge designs.
