Fashion Week Recap: Fall/Winter 2012 Trends To Come

February 19, 2012

 

 

With the Fall 2012 New York collections wrapping up last week, there are tons of great trends coming our way.  Here’s a trend rundown of what I spotted on the runway:

  • Skirt silhouettes were either pencil or full pleated, many were knee-length.
  • Dresses were sheath shaped.
  • Pants were  straight-leg.  Some were cropped or cargo style.
  • There was tons of leather – jackets, skirts, tops, pants, dresses and coats.
  • Brights are not going to be as big as they have been for the last few seasons.  For Fall 2012 the runways featured blue, plum, burgundy, loads of black, some red, and winter white.
  • A lot of garments were made of chiffon fabrics which included sheer paneling in various spots.
  • Coats were double-breasted and belted giving a military feel.
  • Suit jackets were also belted, or had a peplum shape.
  • A small amount of color blocked looks appeared on the runway.
  • Floral and plaid prints were also spotted.
