New York Fashion Week is just getting over and we have selected the top fashion looks from our favorite shows! Discover what new styles we’re spotting for Spring Summer 2019 to get your fashion fix!
As far as I’m concerned, I love to not only watch them, but also go over all the designers’ Instagram pages to see makeup, accessories, backstage scenes and I zoom into the looks to spot any and all new styles, forecast new trends. After all, obsession is what makes me a trend spotter!
So that’s why I want to already start sharing my first thoughts and findings with you! Let’s dive right in…
Top Fashion Looks from New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2019
First off, let me start by saying that New York Fashion Week has been a body positive one so far. We saw loads of plus sized models, curvy ones and of course, there was racial diversity too, although lots more is still needed!
This yellow ruffle dress is a Sex and the City-esque summer dream. So, what better way to start our looks than this one?
Looks like Spring Summer 2019 will be a season of unabashed feminine touches – ruffles, flowy fabrics, high-low hems and soft pastels.
Of course, seeing some shirting and suiting is mandatory if you’re viewing Tibi’s collections! This season’s fresh combos? Try some rule breakers – like flip-flops with a suit, or your boyfriend’s lapel jacket over a floral dress! And let’s take the shirt cuffs as high as your elbows while we’re at it!
This collection has been the most well received so far at NYFW SS19. Head scarves were spotted in more than this collection. Plus, I’m adding lingerie-inspired dresses to the other feminine elements I mentioned above.
Watch out for statement necklaces ’cause they’re getting long enough to touch your belly button! And denim shorts that look like men’s underwear aren’t so cool, but I wouldn’t mind me some biker gloves!
None of Jeremy Scott’s last few collections have been disappointing. Although we can call it signature style, but identifiable designs do run the risk of seeming repetitive. So I have noticed, just saying! Anyway, in his Spring Summer 2019 fashion show at New York Fashion Week, I loved the stone-studded clear plexi. We saw what he calls ‘Crystal Clear’ style both in thigh high boots, jacket and a skirt. Plus, the models had lips to match!
Prints on prints is Prabal Gurung’s forte! And the second look I loved was a plain crop tee on Gigi Hadid with a high-low flouncy skirt. The Hadids siblings, Gigi with Anwar and Bella Hadid, all made an appearance in this show.
Prints, off-the-shoulders, high slits, high-low dresses – let’s combine all the latest street wear trends to get our new collection for New York Fashion Week! But we certainly do enjoy the rope print here!
The sequin camo print dress is my favorite from Nicole Miller Spring Summer 2019 collection. Camo has been popular all of 2018 and even got into gym-wear! So far, ithas been reserved for daywear. But adding sequins is a fresh take to bring the camouflage pattern into nightclub-wear.
Cushnie et Ochs
Color blocking is very back. Cushnie’s Spring Summer 2019 collection was big on basics – swimsuits, high-waist pants, crop tops and button-ups.
Floral mosaic patterns and party shimmer – Tadashi Shoji’s collection was for the fashionable party girl. And sheer panels and capes are still very trendy!
Lots of ethereal tulle and sheer fabrics were all over Spring Summer 2019 collections. This one with an illusion neckline looks like our new brunch-to-cocktail-party dress!
I loved two looks in particular here. The first is a mini dress with all-over floral applique which is not even the shortest dress in Mischka’s SS19 collection! The second is classy and very modern princess. Coat dresses are something we already saw as a big dress trend in Fall 2018-19 collections.
This gown is so interesting – Disney princess-ey. It’s like a cross between Jasmine and Cinderella. Well, I’m sure we’ll see it on one celebrity or the other on red carpet this year! Celeste color is fresh and would make a great addition to our spring wardrobes!
Oversized tops, dresses, jackets and even suits are some of the items I’ve been spotting throughout NYFW Spring Summer 2019. This one in burgundy is paired with a matching mini leather skirt. So, I’m glad my mini leather skirt isn’t going out of fashion anytime soon!
