The fall 2018 Fashion Weeks are not even over yet, but we do already have tons of new seasonal trends to look forward to. While waiting for London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Weeks, we can already check all the fall 2018 fashion trends from New York Fashion Week, which left us with unexpected surprises (like an haute couture Marc Jacobs show, and a slightly less minimalist Victoria Beckham collection), and even exceptional beauty trends to experiment with already.
As for the overall NYFW fall 2018 aesthetics, just keep one motto in mind: the Eighties are back!
#1. Fall Suits Everywhere
Suits have always been one of NYFW’s trademarks, as the Big Apple gets often associated with business, and hard-working people. For the fall 2018 fashion trends, New York’s hottest creative directors have chosen to give suits an even fancier name, opting for innovative styles, figures, and materials.
Often used as a metaphor to celebrate women in the workforce, the New York Fashion Week fall 2018 trends include a plethora of different suits, among which the ultimate one is the oversized, checked jacket paired with a pencil skirt. Since suits are always a staple and somehow, sometimes, one may need one, we recommend investing in a good, haute couture-esque one for the fall season to come!
#2. NYFW Fall 1980
All the fall 2018 fashion trends from New York Fashion Week could be summed up in one specific fashion decade – the Eighties. Bold, unapologetically bright, and structured, the Eighties fashions were translated to their 2018 counterparts in tons of micro trends, which included everything from big shoulders to eccentric glittery fabrics.
As we all know, the Eighties had many souls, and anyone will easily find her fashion soulmate just in time for the colder months, whether it’s with a more high-end Marc Jacobs-inspired outfit or a more whimsical Tom Ford-approved ensemble.
#3. NYFW Falling for Animal Prints
Animal prints were literally falling down New York’s sky during this NYFW. Animal prints were so unapologetically all over the place, even unsuspected creative directors decided to use them, leaving us pleasantly speechless.
Although all things animal patterned are often regarded as tacky, the majority of these fall 2018 fashion trends from NYFW included pretty tailored animal-patterned garments, the outcomes of which were generally subtle and even quite elegant.
If you are one of those people who can’t have a clear opinion on animal prints but feel like trying them on at least once in a lifetime, well, that’s the right time to do it!
#4. Statement Hosiery
Is there anything more Eighties-approved than statement hosiery (yes, a picture of Madonna in a pair of statement hosiery)! Solid-colored and often neon-toned, statement hosiery is one of the literally most visible fall 2018 fashion trends from New York Fashion Week. We already cannot wait to combine our new pink, red, blue, or yellow stockings with a T-shirt dress, and an oversized coat.
#5. Fall 2018 Leggings!
It is only a small step from solid-colored hosiery to printed leggings, especially if you need something to interrupt your ton-sur-ton outfit. Comfy and easy to wear, leggings can easily turn to it-items when combined with tuxedos and pointy-toe high heels, especially during the day. As with suits, we recommend investing in a good pair of edgy designer leggings to wear at the fanciest nights out with friends.
#6. NYFW Checks Inspired
Eighties-inspired items aside, there is a pattern on everyone’s lips – tartan. Utilized to embellish everything from standard jackets to signature pencil trousers, checks will be (well, already are) in any label’s collection, whether in the form of head-to-toe tartan outfits or just minimalist accessories. Tartan lovers, that’s your moment! You can shamelessly stock up on tartan fashions and show them off all year long!
#7. Falling In Love With High Waisted Skirts
Along with tuxedos, there’s another specific garment that stole the spotlight – high-waisted long skirts. Although many critics are already pointing out who copied whom, high-waisted long skirts are one of the hottest fall 2018 fashion trends from New York Fashion Week.
Extremely soigné and urban at the same time, such skirts are meant to help us play with contrasting patterns for sure, as they easily go hand in hand with statement, sporty T-shirts, and pointy-toe stilettos.
#8. A Magenta NYFW
Each Fashion Week season has a must-have color, and for this particular season, it seems like we already have a winner. Magenta (although mauve was extensively used as well) appears to be this fall 2018 NYFW’s must-have color, with many designers embracing it to create an audacious monochrome magenta outfit.
Rich and vibrant, it is also the perfect color for accessories, and we bet our future Instagram feed will be filled with magenta-dipped fall 2018 shoes, it-bags, and makeup looks (which is something we are not complaining about, at all!).
#9. NYFW Fall 2018 Beauty
With some of the fashion industry’s most renowned makeup brands coming from the USA, beauty trends are always the core of NYFW.
This fall 2018 season was no less creative, with some of the best fall 2018 beauty trends perfectly reflecting the fashion moods of the runway collections. Bright eyeliners, and lipsticks, creative nail art, side bangs, wet hairstyles, and (drumroll) claw clips were everywhere on the runways, complementing each outfit with the right amount of fierceness and exclusivity we all look forward to when it comes to NYFW.
