NYFW is over, which means that it’s time for a recap! This fall, styles are staying classic and elegant while still continuing to pay homage to the 70s – but tastefully so! More Charlie girl, less that 70s show. Silhouettes are streamlined, skirts are longer. I’m predicting knee length pencil skirts a la Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde making a comeback. Colors are rich and deep – a progression away from the neutrals of last fall. Look for deep jewel tones and invest in some good navy and black pieces – staples for the season! Also, red made appearances on runways throughout the city – a perfect accent to the preppy plaids and tartans seen. Finally, polished detailing like rich leathers and gold hardware completed the elegance of NYFW.
