Although winter hasn’t officially ended yet, the fashion world has already moved on to Fall/Winter 17. Every show and presentation I attended last week was completely different, but there were some common details that will define the trends of F/W 17.
Just like this winter, the metallic trend is continuing all through next fall & winter. Although there were a few golden and colorful tones spotted here and there, silver was dominating. From RTA’s silver pantsuit (see here), to silver pleated skirt at the Katy Xiomara show and black and silver Oscar De La Renta black & silver dress, silver tones were the focus.
Another big trend I observed at the NYFW Fall/Winter 17 is sheer fabrics. These romantic, feminine fabrics made an appearance in almost every show, mostly contrasting against a rather thick fabric pairing.
For those who loved dramatic sleeves this season, rejoice! Because this trend is stretching over to the next season. Dramatic sleeves were all over the runways. From puffy to exaggerated sleeves, Fall/winter ’17 promises no boring sleeves!
No More Velvet!
Yes, you read that right… Velvet was nowhere to be seen this NYFW. While it was fun wearing those velvet booties this winter, you’re better off donating them at the end of this season.
This was my fashion trends forecast for the upcoming fall and winter. Personally, I’m excited for the continuation of metallics all through next season. What’s your favorite trend you spotted this NYFW?
