New York Fashion Week: New Trends

This year’s fashion week seemed more popular than compared to the years before. There was so much hype and excitement in the air that it caused NYC to get plagued with a bomb threat! But that didn’t stop the shows from going on.

There were a few styles that caught my eye this season.

1. Seafoam! I started to obsess over this color this summer and there was a reason why. This year’s Spring/Summer shows oozed seafoam shades. Whether it was a seafoam accent, print, or used as a contrast it was somehow worked into the garments of many designers such as Rachel Comey, Diane von Furstenberg, Richard Chai and many more.

2. High-waisted shorts another one of my summer obsession brought to the catwalk. Silk, printed, spandex or solid shorts are something that you all will see alot of next summer.

3. Peplum tops- didn’t see this coming. Peplum is a short gathered, flared, or pleated fabric attached to the end of a womans garments: dresses, tops, jackets, etc. A great influence from the 40s.

Those are my top 3 trend watches for Spring/Summer ’12. What do you think? Would you be sporting any of these looks next summer?
