fall trends from New York Fashion Week
Well, tartelettes, that’s a wrap: New York Fashion Week is officially over. The last makeup cases and sewing kits were packed up at Lincoln Center last night… but, for us, the fun is only getting started.
Now we get to play dress-up! We’ve checked out our favorite shows and pulled a few trends that will be inspiring our fall wardrobes.
who wears the pants?
After a few seasons of watching ethereal dress after ethereal dress traipse down the runway, it was a pleasure to see a more moody and structured silhouette return for fall 2012. Gorgeous, tailored trousers were everywhere, such as this fifties-inspired pair from J.Crew.
When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing we love more then a ridiculously oversized sweater. If you’re like us, you’re in luck: fall 2012 brings tons of chunky and loose-knit jumpers, like this one from Michael Kors.

the dark side
The overall sentiment in the design world seems to have shifted from soft and girly to dark and moody. From the abundance of dark colors – wine and black being the most common – to the more structured silhouettes, the clothes this fashion week seemed more brooding and complex and, therefore, more interesting, like this look from Yigal Azrouel.
