From February 9th-16th, New York Fashion Week rocked the fashion world when all of the top designers debuted their Fall 2012 collections on the runways at Lincoln Center. Now that it’s over, it’s time to find out how you can get your hands on all of these hot new trends!
Fall 2012 is decidedly all about textures and furs, as well as menswear-inspired pieces with boxy fits. The designers displayed mostly neutral colors this year in tones of black, gray, navy blue, brown, beige, and ivory, but there were some pops of color too, especially lots of oranges and colorblocking.
One of the biggest comebacks for this season is accessories. From hats to belts to gloves, your fall 2012 look won’t be complete without some of these trendy items:
Hats were everywhere at New York Fashion Week. Not just on the runways, but in the crowds as well, both designers and celebrities have fully embraced the headwear trend. Marc Jacobs and Micheal Kors both went the furry route and debuted some warm, over-the-top fur hats. Ralph Lauren and Betsey Johnson went retro chic opting for newsboy, Gatsby, and bowler hats. Fedora hats were all the rage again this year, as displayed by Donna Karen and Ruffian . Wool hats were one of the classic trends that any fall 2012 look wouldn’t be complete without. Nicole Miller finished off her couture styles with a floppy wool stetson hat. Wide-brimmed wool hats looked smashing when combined with dresses by Rachel Roy.
Thick belts, thin belts, plastic belts, leather belts, pretty much all belts were hot this year at Fashion Week. You’ll definitely want to get a new belt to polish off your outfit to look fresh this fall, just make sure the belt is interesting and makes a statement. Jenny Packham added thin belts to her gowns, which is a great way to add some edge to your evening wear. Leather and rhinestone belts are especially on trend for fall. Rag & Bone cinched dark belts over blanket coats for a sexy hipster look.
It’s all about leather gloves for the fall/winter 2012 fashion season. Diane Von Furstenberg paired neutral, long-sleeve leather gloves with a sleeveless dress for an urban, yet feminine look. Jason Wu also debuted long leather gloves, with his trendsetting studded black leather elbow-length gloves. To really stay ahead of the trend curve, take a cue from Sally LaPointe and opt for short brown leather gloves for a delicately modern look.
