See Now, Buy Now – 3 Hot Trends from NYFW

One of my favorite parts of September is New York Fashion Week.  Yes, it is technically still Summer, but it’s time to start prepping for Spring. Hey, planning ahead never hurt anyone!

Check out three of my favorite new trends that covered Manhattan’s runways last week:

STRIPES
Stripes are timeless and are in no way a new trend, but the simple and classic pattern was seen in a vast variety of NYFW shows this season.  From traditional horizontal and vertical design to diagonal and clashing lines, stripes of all colors were seen creating body movement and shape in even the most shapeless women!

RUFFLES
Ruffles on ruffles on ruffles.  The dainty detailing of the past is taking an edgier and yet still flirtatious turn into the future.  From one simple ruffle to layers of them, this Spring will be the time to mix up your wardrobe from the waist down.

DECONSTRUCTED SHIRTING
Time to move your classic button-down shirts to the back of the closet.  The timeless top has received an upgrade, perhaps more shocking than the headphone jack-less iPhone 7!  From one-shoulder shirtdresses, to wrap styles, crop tops, and shirts sliced with cutouts, the new for spring button-downs are mismatched and asymmetrical.
