Too many collections too much to look at? Here are our picks for the top runway fashion from NYFW Spring Summer 2016 ready-to-wear shows!
Hey hottie! NYFW Women’s F/W 2016 is less than a month away and I thought why not take a look back at the last New York Fashion Week. I’ve already reviewed some of the designers’ collections so you can go check those out at Fashion Week. But today, I just wanted to put it all together and make a list of the best looks and the latest runway fashion from NYFW SS16 RTW shows. Plus it’s going to be Spring soon so some runway ideas may come in handy!
So here we go!
Best of Runway Fashion from NYFW Spring Summer 2016 RTW
Just one image doesn’t do justice to Prabal Gurung’s lovely artsy collection that paid homage to the Nepal earthquakes. Saffrons, reds and pale yellows were the mood at the show with floaty lightweight fabrics and comfortable yet sexy silhouettes. Check out all the looks and review at 8 Things We Loved about Prabal Gurung Spring 2016 at NYFW.
With 70s makeup and hair inspired by Diane von Furstenberg herself, this fashion show created headlines everywhere. Gorgeously feminine with mixed prints, hair accessories and comfy, trendy clothes, this collection celebrated woman’s sensuality. And it will certainly make us try the aquamarine eyeshadow look this Sping! Plus this outfit on Karlie Kloss was featured in Runway Inspired Outfits: Runway to Real Life| Style Ideas.
Rebecca Minkoff had street-style, easy-to-wear pieces in her collection that can be mixed and matched effortlessly. Not for when you want to make a statement, but for when you just want to look chic and stylish, effortlessly.
Tommy Hilfiger collection was sexy on steroids, with Bella and Gigi Hadid both donning sexy swimwear. It’s hard to pick a favorite outfit, but this here crochet crop top with stripe pants was great! Check out the rest of the looks at Gigi Hadid in Cute but Daring Bikini: Tommy Hilfiger New York Fashion Week SS 2016.
Burgundy is my favorite color this season. In fact, I’m thinking of writing a whole article about that. But here’s a capris and sequin top outfit I just loved:
Thigh-grazing slits on skirts are ruling the fashion circuit right now, and Altuzarra made a great case for them.
Nicole Miller SS16 RTW collection is for when you don’t wanna look like a “good-girl”! It’s edgy and badass, not in a wannabe way, but in a fun, stylish way!
Love the above calligraphy inspired top outfit. Also featured in our Runway Inspired Outfits post:
Monique Lhuillier made use of bright contrasting colors, at times clashing – to create classy yet bold pieces. Blacks, hot pinks and bright emerald greens were used with sheers and silks in the silhouettes, and rich blue eyelids.
This dress was also featured in our Runway to Real Life outfit ideas article:
This statement dress by Project Runway is what Carrie Bradshaw’s dreams are made of.
If classy and sexy is not your thing, here’s my choice of an androgynous, chic outfit from Public School.
Keeping in line with the signature Hervé Léger styles, the SS16 collection was familiar, but here are two statement pieces I picked – a one-shoulder mini-dress and a peplum-suit – memorable and bold and very Hervé Léger.
So those were my favorite looks from the New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collections. Which out of these did you like the best? Lemme know below! 🙂
