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.

sparkle on!
Sparkles littered the runways this year, as designers sprinkled them on everything from coats to gowns. This fully-glittered dress from Theysken’s Theory stopped us in our tracks.

suit up

Menswear continues to be a strong fall trend. Strong-shouldered, suiting-inspired coats and full-on pantsuits appeared in shows everywhere; the Ralph Lauren collection was dominated by them.

gettin’ chunky

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.

Make an outerwear statement

Many a designer sent statement coats down the runway this fashion week – a practical counter-balance for all those sheer tops! We adored this kaleidoscopic version by Rodarte.

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.

pic of the day: a living legend on 5th avenue

One of the perks of living in NYC? You never know who you’re going to run into. Early this morning, Jenna, tarte’s creative marketing manager bumped in creative great Simon Doonan on 5th Ave. In her own words:

“So sleepy this morning… but awake enough to notice Barneys New York‘s Creative Extraordinaire Simon Doonan walking down 5th Avenue next to me… which is why I had to grab him (with force) for a photo op. Ha! The best part? He was oh-so-genuinely-nice and what’s nicer than being nice AND having amazing style? They go hand in hand.”
