NYFW Fashion News
Bright lights. Big city. S/S trends. After a semi-NYFW slump of mixed messages and brands jumping ship, NYFW dazzled this year for its SS19 preview. Unlike last year’s NYFW scene which felt like a revival mashup of trends, this year actually breathed new life into the runway. From off duty model looks, to celeb FROW contenders, the NYFW trends that strut down the runway this season are super closet-worthy.
The reason I love these trends is because they’re not subtle. Designers got bold this year and decided to make the runway anything but typical (boring). From diversity to inclusivity (pregnant models anyone!!), this year was on show and so were the designs. The 5 standout NYFW trends that caught my eye (and no doubt will catch my wallet) are sure to make their way into your fav influencers styled looks, hunny.
These ain’t your cousin’s Earl’s cowboy boots. These are Park Avenue, ready to strut cowboy boots, à la Zimmermann et al. From Shay Mitchell to Aimee Song, these boots were made for walkin and that’s just what they’ll do… one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over… the city because at $1600/pair I’m gonna need to show them off to get my ROI.
Inspired by hometowns and countries from around the world, this year really played with bright, bold colour. From Prabal Gurung‘s Asian inspiration (Nepal, Tokyo, Mumbai) to Cushnie‘s playful take on Jamaica’s colourful soul (with her first solo show), this year’s runway felt like a beautiful vivid dream of fun hues.
Construction workers rejoice! Utility inspo has taken another turn on the runways and streets of nyc. Spotted in designer boiler suits, models and celebs alike were sporting this look in between shows and at after hour parties.
Queen Ri said let there be caging, and we all said, OKKKK. Her SavagexFenty NYFW show showed up and showed out… just ask sir Marc Jacobs. Victoria Secret better make note, because Rihanna did not come to play. Her super sexy lingerie caging and body positive show made all the heads turn. And we are here. for. it.
Who needs a boho bag when all you really need in life is a purse to carry your rosé in? Gone are the Mary Poppins, carry the world in your bag days. We’re now entering a time of single-purpose purses. Small pill box purses have already made their debut… we’re now having a moment with iconic see-through, carry your most important item, purses. Naturally, I love.
Feasting or Fasting?
We are definitely feasting babes! From comfy, casual sexiness (boiler suits) to revamped cowboy boots and inspired colours, this year had all the needed elements to make my heart happy and my wallet quiver in fear at all the things it’ll be buying. It’s time to shake up your daily wear and add some fun into the mix with these 5 NYFW trends that your closet is already begging for! Feast up my fashion fiends, S/S 19 is arriving in style.
