Fashion Week Spring 2012 Recap

19 Sep

So NYC Fashion week for spring 2012 is officially over… Kleenex anyone? 

There are some main ideas that came out of the fashion filled week with over 300 shows. Here are some highlights that stood out to me that should be considered in the upcoming months…hard to think that spring will be here before we know it! 🙂

1) Ponytails-  were EVERYWHERE. Low to high. Forget fixing your hair in the morning, instead opt to pull it back and get creative.


2) Peplum- Many fabrics were silky and flowy with  a lot of movement however there was much structure especially in the form of peplum. Helllllooooo 80’s, you are obviously here to stay.

3) T-shirt gowns- Long and casual was the way to go with this classic and simple style.

4) Lower hemlines-  The lower hemline is sticking around for quite a while. Pleats are a forward style for this trend.

5) Crazy Color and Fun Floral- Color blocking is everywhere. The brighter the better. Even neon made a statement on the runways. Floral is also still here, but less romantic and going for a more graphic/ artistic look and moving from dreses to everywhere else, including pants.

6) The perfect pant- The skinny pant is not going anywhere but slouchy is also an alternative to the “suck it in” style… for those “water weight” days.
