NYFW Trends That I'm Loving

Fashion Month has begun and New York Fashion Week has kicked it off in style. There's something about the Concrete Jungle that I'm drawn to. I'm dying to go to NYC (hopefully someday soon, ideally around a fashion week or Christmas). So until then, I'm living through the fashion displayed during the last week. There's new trends that I'm loving and am already trying to mimic with what's currently in my wardrobe. I thought I'd round up my favourite styles and trends, fresh from the catwalks, to let you know the direction of my wardrobe now.


Neutrals Will Never Die
The colour palette of my soul is currently neutrals and nudes. All I want to wear right now is clean colours, with a splash of something extra. But NYFW has continued to show me that you can never have enough nudes.

Wide Leg Trousers + Slip Dresses
Oh Jonathan Simkhai, it's like you read my mind. I was already styling dresses over jeans, but over trousers was my next move. Simkhai has gone ahead and pioneered wide leg checkered trousers with slinky slip dresses, I'm overjoyed.

This probably has to be my favourite thing at the moment. Tailoring is back and is appropriate for any time, any occasion. Obviously, this is not new to the fashion world but it's the new tailored styles that are pouring out. Oversized mens style suits, blazers galore, laidback tailoring - you name it, I love it.

I kid you not, I was thinking about chain detailing the day before the Tom Ford show. Back in 2012, when I was a little 15 year old, I did a personal project in high school and I focused on ethical fashion. One of my pieces in my little collection was a chain strap tank top (black with a gold chain, white with a silver). Honestly they were one of my favourites and I was talking to Mum about remaking them (maybe selling them, we'll see). Then bam, Tom Ford came out with these chain detailed dresses and I'm in awe. Chain detailing adds an edge to feminine pieces, especially chunky ones like this. I plan to add this style back into my wardrobe immediately. (IC: Alessandro Lucioni via Vogue)

Rust & Must or Bust
Any Brits out there will remember the age old Orange phone network add; "The Future Is Bright, The Future Is Orange?" Yeah, well that's true for AW19. Ulla Johnson's collection was filled with rust orange, paired with deep blues and neutrals, whilst Staud, Adeam and Noon by Noor featured the Mustard Yellow that's about the sweep the fashion world (I plan to talk about this more in the future because apparently my best friend predicted this by wearing mustard since last year.) The rust orange and mustard yellow shades are kind of understated and I feel they are quite a good transitional colours from spring to summer to autumn. When I think of Spring Summer, it takes me to the terracotta orange tones and sunshine strong yellows of the Mediterranean and then for Autumn, it's all about the pumpkins and orange and deep yellow toned leaves. These are more versatile colours than you think, yet add the edge that your outfits sometimes need.

The Grass Is Greener
Green is popping up quite a lot and I'm enjoying it. The subtle hints of the colour to the full display, a little bit of green will give your outfits a lift. Sage green is a shade that wasn't so common but is slowly seeping into the trend talks. So note to self - add a touch of green here and there like it's the new red.

Calf Length Slouch Boots
This has already taken off as a trend but it'll be thriving come AW19. They are being paired with everything - mini to maxi dresses, trouser tucked and whatever else you can think of. I really like the style and designers are going for bold colours or effects too. So maybe it's time to invest in a pair? (IC: Filippo Fior via Vogue, for both)

Ralph Lauren
Ralph, you've stolen my heart. The sailor inspired collection shown at Ralph's Coffee with major wide legs, flowing skirts and sparkle was just resonated with me. Taylor Hill's all white ensemble, Bella Hadid in that stunning gold dress, the golden cape finale - oh I just, no words. (Images via Vogue)


I don't even need to say anything because I love every single collection and cannot wait until I spoil myself with a Zimmermann piece one day. (IC: Fillipo Fior via Vogue)


Johnathan Simkhai
Again, loved it. The slip dresses with wide leg trousers are the thing that caught me the most (but I've already spoken about that). These are the other looks that I just love:


I've probably missed certain trends (not the highlighter/neon one, I can't do it and I'm not sorry) and even some shows because there's so many to wrap my head around. These are just the ones that caught my eye on Instagram or on If there's other designers you've seen in the past week that are making you lust for new pieces, let me know! I'd love to broaden my spectrum. 

Happy NYFW! Next up, London and I cannot wait to see what rolls out for AW19.

Lots of love,
