3 Unexpected Trends From Fashion Week I’ll Wear Now


3 Unexpected Trends From Fashion Week I’ll Wear Now

I get so excited about new trends every time I attend Fashion Week. Although all the pieces will not be readily accessible until the next season, I always like to draw inspirations from the runway and incorporate them into my wardrobe this season.

Low-rise Pants

NYFW just did a major throwback to the early 2000s with these low-rise pants. Designers like Phillip Lim, Ryan Roche and Dion Lee resurrected this old trend, not exactly in a way as how we remembered low-rise pants, but with a new relaxed approach – loose-fitted and wide-legged. All props to these amazing designers that made low-rise pants look modern and chic. I can totally see myself wearing a slightly over-sized sweater with these low-rise pants. If you worry about low rise might compromise your height, throw on a pair of pumps or heeled boots and Voila! 

I found these neutral toned low-rise pants to be very similar to the runway pieces. It is always a good idea to start with the classic colors and fit because they are versatile and easy to style with.

Double Sweater

It takes not one, but two sweaters to up your winter/fall layering game, according to these designers. The Tibi  lue triple cardigan/sweater look was one of the most memorable looks from the show for me. This is such a fun and doable trend that I want to try right now. There are multiple ways you can go about styling the second sweater: You can either do it like Tibi and tie the second sweater around the neck, or you can hide the sleeves by rotating the sweater sideways to recreate the looks by Deveaux and Eudon Choi  Or, you can take Theory’s idea and tie it around the waist.

To wear this trend, I recommend getting two of the same sweaters within your budget or getting one that’s the same color as something you already own. Here are some sweaters to start out with:

Mango Chunky Knit Sweater  // H&M Fine Knit Sweater  // Halogen Snap Front Cardigan

Wide Belts 

I couldn’t help but notice a lot of statement buckle belts this NYFW, whether on Oscar De La Renta’s dreamy feathery gown or on the perfectly tailored suits by Tibi and JW Anderson. These wide belts make your outfit extra sharp with an accentuated waistline and give you a little bit of help with your power stance. A statement buckle belt can also be quite a conversational piece to accessorize a simple outfit to make it more complete and thoughtful.

I can’t wait to wear the red Dior buckle belt I wore with this Self Portrait skirt more often. 

These wide belts can definitely help you make a statement with your #OOTDs.
