NYFW Day 1 Recap

Whether you’re front row, or behind a computer screen with a live stream (like myself), the vibrancy and excitement from NYFW is being felt by all. If you haven’t been present for the action, here’s the shows I caught and what you may have missed.

Nicholas K started the day with his signature neutral palette. Chic sunglasses, hooded tunics and multi-strapped heels were found on the runway this morning. It was as if we were on a chic safari in downtown New York (because that’s totally possible, right?).

BCBGMaxAzria kept us going with a wardrobe inspired by the 70’s. Dropped v-necklines, effortlessly flowing fabric and delicate pastels were among the most popular details.

Tadashi Shoji gave us an elegant display of a venetian dream. Pastels and lace flowed on the softest looks, delicately contrasting sparkling evening gowns. I’m predicting many of these looks on next year’s red carpets. We’ll see…

Desigual spiced things up with a fun, vibrant collection. Models were adorned in mixed prints, bold colors and flower crowns – and smiles! Imagine that. This was definitely the happiest show of the day, and not just because we had veteran supermodel Adriana Lima winking at us.

As far as trend-spotting, we’re clearly in for a spring and summer with a strong bohemian vibe, which I love. Mixed prints are here to stay, the accessories are playful and the beauty is very natural. Almost all the shows went for a “no makeup” makeup look. Also spotted were fabulous wavy blowouts and textured braids.

Pieces to consider adding to your wardrobe based on these trends: bold colored and/or printed cropped pants (preferably in a lightweight material); button down blouses with a plunging neckline; shift dresses; color blocked t-strap heels; neutral toned eyeshadows, nail polishes and lipsticks (as well as pops of color – think coral, cobalt and peony); wide-legged pants; long beaded necklaces as well as those made with gems and minerals. Consider visiting a vintage and/or thrift shop for affordable takes on next season’s trends!
