New York Fashion Week Spring 2013

Top Trends from NYFW 

New York Fashion Week has come and gone, and now we're left to sift through the many, many different trends we saw on the Spring 2013 runways and decipher which are the most influential for the coming season. All the fashion shows presented lots of fresh trends that have real potential to last - sporty references, sheer layering, powerful prints, bold stripes, awesome denim and leather are just some of the trends we spotted on the runways from American designers like Jason Wu, Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors and Proenza Schouler. Additionally, there were a plethora of chic black and white color combinations,'90s-inspired oversized silhouettes, and metallic sheens (we all love a little shine, right?). Here are our favorite NYFW trends.

Denim Trends

Summer to Fall

Time to edit our wardrobes from Summer to Fall with our favorite fashion staple. We obviously love our blue jeans just as much as the next fashionista, but sometimes they can look, how shall we say, underwhelming. If you too find yourself bored of your baby blues, then let us reassure you of a few new options. After what has felt like an eternity of rehashing the same denim trends over and over....and over, we seem to finally be enjoying a revival of creative jean-ious (sorry, couldn't help it).

Seriously, though, new washes, treatments, and cuts are making this year the most exciting one since the 80's (except this time around, everything is a whole lot prettier). No longer do you only have a choice between distressed and dark denim in the shops - now, the decisions look more like floral, paint-splattered, high-waisted, tapered even metallic.

And since fall 2012 will be no different, and we've complied the five styles we see flying off the shelves first. Here's to being as daring with your jeans as you are with the rest of you wardrobe - now, let's get to shopping!

Coated Denim - with a wet, waxy finish, coated denim is a slick way to get the "leather" look without sacrificing any vegan values or your wallet. And, don't let the texture fool you....they're surprisingly stretchy plus super comfortable!

Fall Florals & Prints - in darker colors, bigger prints, and more wallpaper-like patterns, fall's dark florals feel a lot more grown-up than their pastel-hued spring cousins.

Tapered and Baggy - this fit is the modern update to the boyfriend jean. Cropped and roomy but not frumpy, these pants are meant to be worn with this season's pumps, flats and ankle boots. These jeans are great because they are so versatile.

Polka Dot Jeans - coming in a variety of sizes, colors, and patterns, the polka-dot jean will save your wardrobe just as many times as summer's polka dot dresses did for you.

Side Panel Jeans - with a tuxedo-pant like stripe down the side or racing stripes, side-panel jeans elongate the legs and instantly jazz up an outfit (our favorite) absolutely love, love, love!

Whatever denim you decide on, you will be investing in a fashion staple. Denim can be worn both dressy and casual. These denim trends came straight from the runway. We love denim, a great trend to wear to New York Fashion Week which starts today!


See you @ New York Fashion Week!!!
