What's Trending At New York Fashion Week



What's Trending At New York Fashion Week

I'm obsessed with New York and London Fashion Weeks. OBBBBBSESSED. As a past runway model, I love the backstage madness and excitement. Because it truly is madness behind the curtain. I love the hair and makeup, the preparations, and of course, the actual fashion shows were all ridiculously divine this show. So, here is what's trending for Spring 2016 according to the runways.

Trend 1. All Victorian Everything
Think ruffles, puffy sleeves, high-collar necklines, loads of flowers, lots of Victorian-era influences with some cheeky, edgy twists.

Trend 2. Off-The-Shoulder
Think gentle off-the-shoulder tops and dresses, with little ruffles, bows and lots of gorgeous, bronzed shoulder blades. This silhouette is everything and everywhere. LOVE.

Trend 3. The White Shirt Re-Invented
The basic white shirt is not so basic and received the designer makeover, with cut-out collars, rolled up cuffs, buttonless styles, ruffles (again!!) and white-on-white going strong.

Trend 4. The Flat Loafer
Comfortable, relaxed, slip-on shoes are still trending and are all-the go for Spring 2016. Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham and Tommy Hilfiger all revealed that the flat loafer give every outfit the perfect effortless, relaxed vibe. Surf shoes are a must next Spring.

Trend 5. Spanish Influences
Think swishy, sexy midi skirts with revealing slits that show long bronzed legs. Sheer blouses with billowing sleeves. Bold red hues will be strong for Spring 2016 with some flamingo influences.

Trend 6. Pleats
Think day dresses, pencil skirts and overcoats with small, tight, knife pleats. It's all about these tiny details that make the biggest difference.

Trend 7. Paperbag Waists
3.1 Phillip Lim, Public School, Tome and Tibi all revealed gorgeous skirts and pants with drawstring paperbag waists on their runways. The joy of this trend is that it creates an amazing hour-glass figure with long lean legs to follow. In love.

Trend 8. Netting
Sheer mesh paneling and netting were really strong trends on the runways this year, whether the paneling is along the sleeves, waist or neckline.

Trend 9. Marled Knits
Layered knits are still on trend for Spring 2016. Think long marled-knit cardigan coats that are belted over mini skirts, cropped knitted tops with flirty midi skirts and knitted mini-dresses from the runways of Michael Kors, Jason Wu and BCBG.

Trend 10. Lingerie
Think lacy white, silver-grey and black camisole tops, pastel-hued slip dresses with little spaghetti straps and flirty lingerie-inspired midi skirts from Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang and Givenchy. This trend was a fave among the fashion editors of the magazine world.

Trend 11. Fringed Benefits
Fringe has been trending for a few seasons now, and after seeing this boho trend everywhere on the runways of Diane Von Furstenberg, Boss, Anna Sui, Derek Lam and Prabal Gurung, it's here to stay. Still a winner.

Trend 12. Lightweight Denim
Think denim belted shirt dresses, lightweight denim mini and midi skirts with slits that reveal long bronzed legs, patchwork distressed jeans, and of course the denim jacket draped over the shoulders.

Trend 13. The Half-Moon Bag
Watch out bucket bags, there's a new shape in town. Victoria Beckham and Michael Kors have revealed that tghe half-moon bag is about to take the fashion world by storm.

Trend 14. Orange
This colour is AMAZING and goes with any complexion. Dion Lee, Adam Selman and Altuzarra all proved that it's the perfect Spring shade from bright neon oranges to soft sorbet corals.

Trend 15. Plaid
Gingham has been going strong, but Spring 2016 will be all about over-sized plaid print. Thank supersized plaid-printed skinny pants, mini-skirts and little cropped bolero jackets.

Don't forget to check out my New York, London, Paris and Milan runway fashion shows. There is a lot of gorgeousness to come.

Love, Elle xo
