New York Fashion Week started off the month-long run of shows dictating what we’ll be wearing this winter, and from what we’ve seen, there’s a continuation of certain trends that have been given an innovative spin. Here are our five key takeaways from the shows, and how to wear these trends:
1. Skirts over trousers
This season sees layering your bottoms with skirts over trousers, and it’s an excellent way to refresh pieces you already have. Plus, the drop in temperature means a little extra warmth will go a long way.
Collina Strada did the look in tropical, holiday-esque prints, with long skirts with splits to show off loose cargo trousers. Button up shirts add a crisp touch, while studded belts and fingerless gloves bring the look back firmly to teen-angst territory.
Maryam Nassir Zadeh went for a highly sophisticated take on the Y2K style, with a leather miniskirt over baggy sheer trousers. Paired with a chic brown long-sleeved top, minimal make-up and no visible accessories, the chilli-red skirt takes centre stage.
