#1: Shapes and Volumes
From bright blue heart-shaped gowns to shoulder pads and floaty ballroom dresses, fabric took many different forms on the runway.
This classic Dorothy style finally hit the catwalk. Funky collars and scarves also made an appearance alongside these colorful stripes. (My personal favorite: an all-pink ensemble including dangly earrings and high socks. Paris Hilton vibes!)
#3: Green Wave
Every hue from lime to olive to jade made waves through NYFW. Bright outfits gleamed with lighter shades of green, while deeper army greens created a dark, sulky look.
It’s hard to take your eyes off these statement headpieces, comprised of tulle, fishnet, or silk. Whether they trail down the back or cover the face, these wedding-style bonnets stood out against transparent skirts and heavily patterned gowns.
Not all heroes wear capes… but these ones do. Some designers went for a spooky Gothic vampire look, while others went for a more sleek and modern style. Now all we need is a gala invitation!
