NY Fall Fashion Week 2013
New York Fall Fashion Week has come to a close, but the fashionable looks will soon be making its way to magazines, department stores, and this fall, the streets. Style debuted in all forms at the Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Week. The heavy snow conditions didn’t stop fashion elites and celebrities from lining the hottest runways of fashion week. From Marc Jacobs to Alexander Wang, the runway produced a ton of show stopping looks we have to look forward to this fall. Goodbye was the pastel colors of spring; fall fashion trends included leather, plaid, and over-sized jackets and sweaters. Black and white seemed to be the color of choice on popular runways like Herve Leger and Carolina Herrera. Tough looks in the form of military wear and leather will keep you warm this year, as seen on the runways of DKNY and Prabal Gurung.
With all the dark colored fabrics used on the fall runway, the jewelry and accessory trends seemed to be pops of color in the form of metallics and prints. Dark colored dangle earrings and bib necklaces were seen on the models at the J. Crew show. Less is definitely more this fall with a lot of designers opting for simple studs and subtle bracelets and necklaces too. We’ll help you prepare for fall 2013 with faux jewelry items that will boost your look this year!
