New York Fashion Week has officially kicked off Fashion Month, giving us our first look at what’s to come in Fall 2019. Some styles are cropping back up with a fresh coat of paint, such as more sophisticated print mixing and color blocking, while other styles were much fresher. Let’s take a look at the most popular styles from New York Fashion Week Fall 2019.
Designers fashioned formalwear with function this season, showing jumpers ready for jumping! Chromat went for workout wear with a lovely marine blue spandex and mesh ensemble, while Jeremy Scott’s jumpsuit made headlines, or, was made of headlines, rather. Nili Lotan and Rebecca Taylor both rival the suit with elegant jumpers, and Rag & Bone’s utility jumper looks perfect for gardening or heading to a workout.

(Color Me Surprised) Fiery Red
Fiery Red, otherwise known as Please-For-the-Love-of-all-that-is-Fashion-stop-wearing-this-Red, will burn for eternity, apparently. This color will not go away and was everywhere on the runway (and the red carpet). Area shows a stunning tracksuit in rich red with bedazzled trim, and Brock Collection shows a Victorian style midi dress. Red Valentino lives true to the name with a fiery red fur coat, while Self-Portrait’s lovely red dress was dainty and daring. Alice + Olivia took on two trends, utilizing fiery red sequins for a disco-esque ensemble.

Designers were feeling the love this season, with frills and ruffles reminiscent of a more romantic era. Brock Collection featured a lovely corseted cardigan and a ruffled black dress, while Red Valentino’s ballerina-inspired line featured a ruffled collar and ruffled skirt over a leotard. Tory Burch’s stunning bell-sleeve blouse featured a Victorian-esque collar, and Ulla Johnson pairs romantic ruffles with geometric print. Rebecca Taylor utilized romantic ruffles throughout her line, but the artful ruffle along the collar really speaks to this trend, taking something as powerful as the business suit and adding a delicate touch.

Spring In the Winter
Last season, it was a total trend to show collections at any time other than fashion week (Alexander Wang, most notably, showed months later, although he’s back this year…), but this season designers simply switched their seasons with spring style prints and colors in the fall. Brock Collection utilized a stunning skirt suit in pastel pink, while Kate Spade utilized lilac. Self-Portrait showed a bright gamboge, and Victor Glemand showed a striped pastel ensemble. Lela Rose hosted her own little dog show and showed a lovely dress that featured spring florals, paired with the cutest dog ever to walk the runway.
Spring into Winter with these fabrics:
Structured silhouettes showed up this season, but they were anything but rigid. Area featured structured sleeves, while Christian Siriano paired structured sleeves with a structured peplum. Khaite utilized velvet to make some structured sleeves, which takes talent and artistry, and Self-Portrait showed one structured sleeve paired with a bare shoulder. Anna Sui utilized a bubble skirt to add structure to fit-and-flare dress with grace!
