NYFW runway review
So the 70’s are back and at it, and with massive squared off cinched waists over a denim dress (alert: denim) and some flat boots, Band of Outsiders created the ultimate cool. M Missoni had some mod, floral leg action on display, and the print-mixing and bold colors rocked out the decade to a T. Then there’s Red Valentino, because leopard over leopard is
basically genius, and throwing some florals in the mix just completes everything from A to Z.
Tailored attire is always in demand and on display. But define tailored, and there comes the excitement. There’s the beige Rag & Bone tucked in look, with a versatile cropped jacket that works for all occasions. Jason Wu brings cool, loose vibes to the forefront with an oversized bow, cropped pants and the ultimate coat. And finally, J.Crew, which redefined the meaning of tailored, bringing a new kind of woman who wears the pants to the spotlight.
There’s no such thing as too much fur. In a world where more is more, Prabal Gurung shows us just what that means. Turtleneck? Check. Mixing layers and textures, done. Pastel hues always resurface, and this Tibi outfit kind of makes us want to roll around in a field of lavender. Thakoon summoned rich color palette with some overlapping to make an exciting statement with a clear presence.
Okay, the wild card. Cushnie et Ochs for that top silhouette, which is practucally redefining the crop top. Jenny Packham piles it on proving the more out there you can get, the better. Who needs to dress under the radar anyway? And than the sporty addition via Tommy Hilfiger, which brings this style back with a feminine twist.
Lastly, two textures that we can’t ever get enough of–all things sheer and lacy. Vera Wang showed a contrast depicting buttoned up and revealing for a grand finale of chic. Rodarte was a bare-all in white lace, with a delicate silhouette that we wouldn’t mind pairing with gladiator flats come nicer weather. And of course Oscar de la Renta, who masters all the right things in all the right places, like this black dress, which shows just the right amount.
