In case you missed New York Fashion Week, we’re here to provide you with some must-haves that you can steal directly from the runway.

 

Sheer

Top designers from NYFW such as Marc Jacobs, Prabal Gurung, and Tadashi Shoji made it very clear that they supported the Free the Nipple Movement. The daring clothing these designers debuted made everyone’s head turn. Fashion icons such as Kendall Jenner rocks sheer on the reg, but she had everyone talking after wearing a bold, transparent top by Marc Jacobs. Regardless of whether you choose to free the nipple this spring or not, sheer can still be a look that you purchase for your spring wardrobe. Throw on a bralette underneath if you choose but you do you.

Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are a fabulous trend because one no longer has to spend hours trying to piece together the perfect outfit.

Fun Colors

Pantone recently released their Fashion Color Trend Report for spring 2018, and although we never get tired of wearing black on black, we are ecstatic to see the bold colors this spring. The team at the Pantone Color Institute analyzed the runways and compiled the twelve most popular colors that designers used during New York Fashion week. The four colors that were most prevalent to us were Meadowlark, Cherry Tomato, Little Boy Blue, and Blooming Dahlia.

Meadowlark 13-0646

Christian Siriano used many bright colors in his spring 2018 collection, meadowlark being one of them. This bright yellow color allows one to express their inner confidence.

Cherry Tomato 17-1563

Red, orange, and red-orange (such as Cherry Tomato) were all over the runways of NYFW this year. Marc Jacobs’ collection this year gained a lot of attention due to his vibrant color choices and the many “it girls” that strutted down the runway repping his brand. Cherry Tomato is one of the tropical colors that he used which is shown below. Feel alive this spring with this attention drawing color.

Little Boy Blue 16-4132

Despite the misleading name, blue is a color that everyone can slay in.

Blooming Dahlia 15-1520

Show your sensitive and sweet side this spring by wearing Blooming Dahlia. Tadashi Shoji incorporated this blush-like color into many of his pieces during NYFW including the dress below.

 

Trench Coats

Isn’t it devastating when you worked so hard to pull together the perfect outfit and are forced to cover it up due to the weather? Thankfully, trench coats were seen all over New York Fashion week: now your jacket can only add to your outfit.

Athleisure

To no one’s surprise, wearing activewear as streetwear will continue to be a trend in 2018. To be completely honest, we hope that this trend never fades away.  Timeless, classic brands such as adidas and Champion will continue to run the streets, and Puma collaborated with one of Hollywood’s hottest, Rihanna. Rihanna debuted her new line of athleisure wear at New York Fashion Week, and we cannot stop talking about it. Who knew athleisure could be so sexy?
