Day one New York Fashion Week fall 2019 recap

Noon by Noor fall 2019 NYFW runway

The first day of New York Fashion Week, I attended three amazing shows. Noon by Noor was filled with the perfect items we all need in our closet this fall 2019 season. The color palette was neutral, and also reflected the current fall 2019 color trends. My next show on day one, was Laurence & Chico. They are a really fun designer brand filled with playful designs, and avant-garde fashion. They have the fun items we all need to add to our closets when we need to amp our personal style. I finished the day at Badgley Mischka, which was a beautiful collection of party and evening attire. The fall line will round out our fall event season wardrobe quite nicely.

Day one was really all we need to make our closets complete!

Without further ado, here are my favorite looks from each collection, why I loved them, and why they would compliment your style this fall.

Noon by Noor was one of my favorite shows this season. Everything on the runway would be perfect in my closet-and yours! These are a few examples of the fabulous choices for fall 2019 on the Noon by Noor runway. I loved the white dress which would make a fabulous swimsuit cover-up for a fall or winter getaway somewhere warm. There were several black go-to looks on the Noon by Noor fall 2019 runway. I loved the stripe pieces which added dimension to the all-black ensembles. This camel poncho is nothing short of fabulous. I love the black details, and the drape is luxurious, flattering, and downright chic. You can see more of the fall 2019 runway collection by Noon by Noor online at their website, NoonByNoor.com.

My apologies for the photos-I was using a new camera for the first time at fashion week and, well, I tried!

I did better with my new camera at this show! Can you spot Miss Jay sitting front row in the second photo? Love!

Laurence & Chico really put on a fabulous show for fall 2019 at New York Fashion Week. The music evoked a club vibe, and the models put on a theatrical show as they pranced down the runway. It was so much fun! I fell in love with many of the jackets and coats, as well as the vintage vibe. The runway show theme took us to “Thai Thai Land.” There was a vintage vibe, and although the collection was playful, it did offer many structured looks which can easily be brought from the runway to the street. I can see myself wearing that brown tweed set pictured above, as well as that fabulous blue and pearl white coat. Love!

OK, my pictures did not come out very good. I did get one good photo of a model from the back. I loved the details on her gown, and how the dress offered a print on the bottom, with classic black on top. The final walk from Badgley Mischka’s fall 2019 New York Fashion Week runway show was full of red dresses. If you need a red dress this fall, Badgley Mischka is your go-to designer! There were so many fabulous red dresses! I wish my photos came out better!

I fell in love with all the sparkling fabrics on the runway, and the chic, classic lines of the collection. The dresses were timeless. Badgley Mischka really created a fall 2019 collection for New York Fashion Week which can withstand the test of time, and stay in a woman’s closet for many years to come. This is an investment collection. I fell in love!

You can view the entire collection online at BadgleyMischka.com.

What do you think of the new fall 2019 collection from New York Fashion Week so far? Are you as excited for fall as I am?!

Thanks for stopping by-and stay tuned for continuing coverage from NYFW!

Color trends for fall 2019 from New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week fall 2019 is underway! We are slightly more than half-way through the week as I write this. The fall/winter 2019/20 runways are offering us new trends to look forward to in the next cold weather season. Of course, we are still trying to finish THIS cold weather season! I think everyone around the country can agree-we have had quite the cold weather season this year! Brrr!

Speaking of fashion trends, my favorite trends to follow are color trends. When you know the color trends of an upcoming season ahead of time, it helps you to shop your closet for that season, and see which colors you need to add to your wardrobe in order to create the perfect fall color palette. Love that!

Pantone has released their top twelve colors used by designers for their fall 2019 collections in New York. In addition to the top twelve colors, the top four neutral colors are pushing the envelope as being classified as, shall we say, “neutrals.”

Brown is the new black, and orange tones are the new shades of pink. This upcoming fall 2019 season, look for a 1970’s color palette on modern silhouettes. Designers took inspiration from the 1940’s, through to the new millennium, while using a brown/orange/red/white/blue mix of colors in medium-dark hues for the fall season.

Basic black, which is just as chic as ever, was all over the runway. But, alternate neutral hues such as vanilla, light grey, and deep navy, competed with everyone’s go-to wardrobe color (a-hem, black); adding a fresh breath of color into our fall closets. Winter white is a thing! Hope you weren’t still clinging to that silly “can’t wear white after labor day” thing.

Trends for spring 2019 from New York Fashion Week

What would I do without my crew? If you have been following along, you know I had to suddenly cancel my trip to New York Fashion Week due to a medical emergency. I was planning on traveling to New York with three of my fabulous blogger buddies; Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun, Laura from Have-Need-Want, and Kali from In Spades Blog. Unfortunately my plans fell through due to my health.

After my emergency room visit I kept my friends in the loop until I knew for certain if I would miss fashion week. It was clear after a couple of days there was no way I could travel to New York, so my friends flew into action and covered different shows for me so that I could still get photos and also know what was actually on the runway; and how the fabrics looked in person. This is why I go to fashion week, there is only so much you can decipher from a photograph. Seeing the fabrics in person, and watching them flow down the runway, helps craft the vibe of a collection and an entire season.

With a little help from my friends this season, I was able to forecast a few fabulous trends for the spring 2019 season, and be able to share them with you! I apologize for not having my usual full coverage, and the street style posts I promised, but I will be back in New York next February and will ensure full coverage of the shows and the streets!

Spring 2019 is proving to be a re-birth of sorts. We are seeing designers favor happier silhouettes and brighter hues. There is an earthy vibe combined with a free-spirited 1980s party vibe. The power suit is back with a vengeance, and our minds are instantly taken back to images of the 1980s when women wore a power suit with power pumps, and big hair. While the power suit was dominant on Wall Street in the 1980s, in 2019, look for it morphing into more of a dinner look, evening look, and anytime you want to flex your power look.

Bright colors dominated the runways, in sharp contrast to the softer hues we have been seeing in past seasons. Blush or “Millenial Pink” has been replaced with a more vivid shade of pink, while neutrals have softened and lightened up. You can read my full post on the spring 2019 color trends here. Of course, my favorite color of the season is blue.

Sparkle and shine like it’s Studio 54 time! The late 1970s and early 1980s party vibe appeared once again on the runways for spring 2019. Designers loved any type of fabric with a sheen to it. They used everything from clear plastic to sequins to metallic threads to create pieces which catch the light, and shine bright. You can sparkle and shine at any time during the day, so wear your sequins to brunch and shimmering skirt to lunch; it’s time to shine!

Ball and chain got you down? It could be because you saw an awful lot of prison stripes on the runways for spring 2019! Perhaps appearing to be locked up is the new trend. This spring 2019, look for bold, black and white stripes alone, or mixed with other stripes and/or prints. Be bold, and wear your stripes proudly; just don’t let the cops see you or they’ll take you back 😉

Trench coats are a classic piece many of us have stuffed in the back of our closet. They started to emerge as more than a classic piece last year, and for spring 2019, the classic trench has taken on new life. When the weather warms up early next year, look to invest in one statement making trench. You can rock this trend with a lightweight, avant-garde trench coat to top off your spring looks, or wear one as a dress! Either way, the trench could be your most important investment next spring.

Well, that is only five trends from the runways which stood out to me during New York Fashion Week this season. As store buyers decide what will sell, and what won’t sell, we will get a better snapshot of what’s to come in spring 2019! What do you think of these five trends? Which ones will you wear and which ones will you skip?

Thanks for stopping by!
