6555e03f640dd826ecbcefa987665d3c-550x624Fashion Week in New York City is often a pilgrimage for A-lister celebrities, models, designers and journalists (as well as a few lucky common folk spectators) to view the newest and trendiest styles that have hit the runways. Media attention is usually spotlighted on which celebrities were in attendance, what were they were wearing and who were they were with, but the Spring Creek Sun will be getting straight to the core of this materialistic show—what the future of fashion holds for us. (If you have a social media account such as, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, you can catch some of the top trends following the hashtag #NYCFW.)

Top Fashion Trends From #NYCFW

Trench Coats: Fall is here, and so are trench coats, boots and leather. Designer Calvin Klein showcased a très chic satin trench coat, with skin tight leather pants and high heel black leather boots. Although you may feel like a crossover of Catwoman and a detective, the outfit is great for both formal and informal occasions, and is sure to keep you warm during fall’s brisk weather.

Sequence: Who said the 80s style was so passé? Sequence is back, and maybe not as overused as in the 80s, but it’s definitely taking the runways by storm. Both J. Mendel and Ralph Lauren featured sleek, low-cut floor length gowns that will be sure to impress during a night out.

It’s all about the length: One of the most common styles shown during NYCFW was floor length outfits. From tweed coats, reminiscent of the 40s with fur cuffs and collars (I’m sure there are faux fur versions available for animal lovers) or even dark, straight leg skirts with satin and lace designs like Thomas Browne’s black dresses. Although the outfits appear to be straight out of a Tim Burton movie, they do shine a whole new light on the idea of a LBD (little black dress).

Pantsuits: Pair your favorite fall colors with a professional, stylish pantsuit. Many of the designers, like Honor, featured 70s-like pantsuits, which are high-waisted with wide leg cuts. Honor’s collection showcases violet, satin pants with a matching sheer, long-sleeved top— a combination that is sure to make heads turn at the office.
