5 Wearable Fashion Week Trends (Yes, Really!)
The space-age outfits strolling down New York Fashion Week runways are incredible to watch, but if you’re like us, you’d never conceive of actually wearing them. (Even super-fit, super-fashionable celebrities don’t end up wearing a lot of them!) But as anyone who saw Meryl Streep chew out Anne Hathaway’s sweater in The Devil Wears Prada will recall, the colors, patterns, and shapes from these high-end ensembles do end up trickling down to the wider market– and soon enough, you’ll be seeing certain combos on the shelves at your favorite stores. To give you a head start on the biggest new looks, we’ve chosen five unquestionably fashion-forward trends from NYFW, along with eminently wearable pieces from thredUP that make the look work on a budget.
1. Fall neutrals: BCBG Max Azria, Creatures of the Wine, Josie Natori, and Nicholas K breathed new life into neutrals this season, using unexpected quilting, lace, leather, and color blocking to give a boost to classic black, gray, cream, and camel. This black Express cocktail dress or this super-soft gray New York & Company dress rely on all-over ruching to put a new spin on timeless shades.Check out all our thredUP fall neutrals picks.
2. Vibrant red: There’s nothing hotter than a rich, brilliant red, and the shows for Kye, Josie Natori, Tome, and Mark and Estel were filled with candy-apple shades for the fall. Pair this bright red Luli motorcycle-style jacket with dark denim or this sleek red BR cocktail dress with black tights to make a memorable style statement.
