Fall 2016 New York Fashion Week Recap

This is my favorite way to review the NY + London Fashion Week runways:20160221_175332-01

For this post I’m going to share some of my stand out Runway vs. Vintage looks and share 7 major trends that are all over the runways this season. Since I am still compiling my favorite collections + specific looks seen on some of the runways (SO many great ones to pick) – I will share those at a later time. See all the shows here + pick your faves!RUNWAY versus VINTAGE
I always see looks on the RUNWAY that are totally VINTAGE throwbacks! I wanted to highlight a few specific looks that tie back to exclusive pieces that are in the PrettyProperQuaint vintage ETSY Shop.

The Vintage Black Lord + Taylor Coat (middle), similar on the Oscar de la Renta + 3.1 Phillip Lim runways:

The Vintage Levi’s High-Waisted Grey Crop Pants (middle + right), similar on the Mulberry runway:

The Vintage Bonwit Teller Sport Jacket (left) and the Vintage KORET Career Sweater/Blazer (right), similar on the Marissa Webb runway:

7 MAJOR trends:
Although designers have their own look and feel to each collection, I highlighted 7 major trends that I noticed that came up in most of the runway presentations. These trends are sure to be directly runway-to-streetstyle for the Fall season!
