New York Fashion Week - AW16 Trend Round-Up

New York, how we love you. After a long fashion drought you come along every February and September and shake things up nicely for us. The temperatures over the last week may have been cold, but that was no deterrent for the fash-pack who loyally went from show to show taking in the new season's offerings and filling our Instagram feeds with visual delights.

Keep scrolling for our favourite trends that will be coming your way after bikini season...


Is this colour trend perhaps a nod to Oscar season? Who knows, all we know is that this feels like a celebration of the ability to be a fabulous woman and wear a fabulous dress. The collections are for Autumn Winter, the time of dark nights and Christmas parties, so our thanks go out to Jenny Packham, Saint Laurent and Diane von Furstenberg for solving our wardrobe crisis early. Gold, sequins and glitter, what more could a woman want?


For Autumn Winter 2016 it looks like we will all be customising our clothing, as the fashion houses have challenged the preconception of flowers being limited only to Spring/Summer and instead have adorned various pieces in their collections with applique style sewing and bead-work to create some exquisite floral displays. This adds a luxe third dimension to what you are wearing as well as implying couture - pass us the needle and thread, we better get started!
Seen on catwalks including; Michael Kors, Caroline Herrera and Marchesa.


Many say that their schooldays were the best days of their lives, so why not pay homage - especially if it's the vogue thing to do. Fitted blazers, giant pussy-bows and crisp shirts were seen strutting down many a catwalk this past week, but our favourites have to be the classic Ralph Lauren, gothic twist from Marc Jacobs and country inspired set from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Looks like we'll be needing to book a weekend in the Cotswold's or invest in some geek-chic glasses to show this look off at it's best.


Fashion is all about being fun a breaking the boundaries, so who an earth would want to keep things symmetrical and sensible? This season it's definitely not Diane von Furstenberg, BCBG Max Azria or Boss, as they were all seen presenting classic cuts, bold shapes, neutral colour blocking - however all showcased a modern and interesting twist with striking asymmetry factored into the design.
