New York Fashion Week is well underway with only two days left of shows, but already some major spring trends have emerged. I was fortunate enough to attend my first show ever (yay!!) at Skylight Clarkson Square on Sunday morning to see Francesca Liberatore on behalf of Halfstack magazine, read my show review HERE. The show was amazing; full of muted colors, classic plaid, and sheer lace embellishments – just some of the amazing, upcoming spring trends.
Fashion week brings out the best street style looks so I was inspired to channel my favorite trends into a look of my own. For spring I am still loving the pink and blue Pantone colors from a few years back, you know the classic millennial pink and blue? Since more subtle colors are in, excluding the bright pink that popped up on some runways, the pale blue and pink are still on trend.
By far my favorite trend this season is the use of sheer fabrics and lace, seen already by Oscar de la Renta, Anna Sui, and Jonathan Simkhai to name a few. When I found this powder blue dress with sheer lace detailing, I fell in love. The main fabric of the dress was a nice, soft velvet that juxtaposed the delicate lace.
Since I chose such a light color for the dress I decided to do all of my accessories in black to match the vibe in NYC more (trust me, black is the staple of all NYC closets). I decided to invest in a new pair of black boots, and this pointed toe, lace up pair is perfect to walk in with only a slight heel. They are more versatile than I expected and can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I added a basic black purse with a silver chain and a black suede jacket to complete the look. Although it is still warm in the city, I wanted to have a more fall appropriate outfit which is why I added the black jacket. With the current end of summer / beginning of fall weather it is best to dress in layers as the temperature changes drastically throughout the day.
