New York Fashion Week has come and gone, and we are left with so many new trends to try. The runway, highlighting future fall collections gives us inspiration and time to plan while the street style showed us the latest and hottest trends. Check out the highlights from the most fashionable week of the season.
1. All Natural
This trend appeared last season, but we saw it really find its way at NYFW. Nature-inspired looks were everywhere from the leaf motifs at to mineral jewelry. We saw rough and crystalline-looking earrings at Proenza Schouler. Agate-inspired earrings shapes were worn at the Oscar de la Renta show. Although not technically a jewelry piece, at Calvin Klein we saw agate accents on several of his outfits. This CK trend can be easily achieved through an agate pendant necklace. Leaves, minerals and flowers were about at NYFW, perfect for the spring season.
2. Charming Chokers
While chokers have been experiencing a revival period for the past three fashion seasons, this Feb. we saw some development of the trend. Designers added a bit of embellishment and flair to the pieces to take the accessory to the level of a unique, statement piece. Tommy Hilfiger added embroidered details while Oscar de la Renta chose the chain links to take his pieces up a notch. Ralph Laurent opted to add some color with red gems. Finally, Calvin Klein added a silver heart pendant.
3. Colorful Gemstones
The colorful gemstone jewelry was impossible to miss and a lot had a decidedly baroque feel to the look. The pieces were large over the top and came in an array of colors just in time for spring. Ralph Lauren and Marchesa did not hold back on the jewelry, and most pieces were heavy on the gemstones. Ralph Lauren used large and colorful hues of blue, pink, purple, red and green. Marchesa used far more neutral shades, but did feature greens and blues for color. Finally, Oscar de la Renta made his statement earrings match the bright tones of dress for a cheery monochrome look.
4. Dainty Details
At Rag and Bone and Tommy Hilfiger, patterns and textures were front and center, but that didn’t mean that accessories would be forgotten. At Rag and Bone, simple pearl details complimented monochrome patterns and dark looks. At Tommy Hilfiger models wore dainty drop earrings and beaded brooches with flowing dresses and structured stripes.
5. Double Time
In the past, the accessory battle was statement earrings versus statement necklaces, but this season we sense a draw. At Tommy Hilfiger we saw the choker combined with pearl drop earrings. At Opening Ceremony we saw the futuristic styles of their collar necklaces and drop earrings paired together. At Marchesa, we saw the opulent gemstone statement necklaces and earrings. Finally at Zimmerman, we saw monochrome collar and chain necklaces layered and paired with oversized hoop earrings.
