NYFW Trends to Know: Fall/Winter 2016 Edition

See a trend, pick it up, then all day you’ll have good luck

02.24.16

In the age of personal style and the Internet, trends don’t hold the same weight they used to. (But who does after high school, am I right?) When anything goes — and it does — trend spotting is more about pattern recognition than anything else.

So why do it? Because you need something concrete to report back to your Aunt Agatha, who will, mark my word, ask you what’s trending for Fall/Winter 2016 the next time you see her.

Feel free to tell her about…

Pleats to Tick-Off Your Cantankerous Tailor

Pleats to Tick-Off Your Cantankerous Tailor

Raise the window blinds, gear up your accordion and step inside the box: pleats aren’t just for the plaid school skirt anymore.

As seen at Adam Lippes, Creatures of the Wind, Delpozo, Dion Lee, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Ralph Lauren, Sally LaPointe, Suno, Trademark, Vivienne Tam, and hello: Resort ’16 Gucci.

Mini Skirts (by Way of Punks, Preps and Sailors)

Mini Skirts (by Way of Punks, Preps and Sailors)

Capital A’s rendered in lower-case will make blazers less stuffy, tights less strict and combat boots just a bit more peaceful.

As seen at Alexander Wang, Cushnie et Ochs, Giulietta, Jason Wu, Jeremy Scott, Michael Kors, Monse, Sophie Theallet, Tommy Hilfiger, Tory Burch, Zimmermann

Ruffles for the Frill of It (But It’s Not As Excessive as It Seems)

Cheap Frills -- Where Excess Fabric Explodes for Free

Excess fabric gets taken to the extreme, but it appears in smaller iterations, too — instead of piping on a jacket, for example, or on the tippy top of a collar.

As seen at BCBG, CG, Creatures of Comfort, Christian Siriano, Cushnie et Ochs, Derek Lam, Edun, Jill Stuart, Karen Walker, Rodarte, Rosie Assoulin, Sies MarjanSuno, Trademark, and Vivienne Tam

Slit Pants à la Abba, Flared at the Seams

NYFW-2016-Trend-Report-Pant-Slits-Man-Repeller

Get ready for a “back in my day” from your mom or an “I could have done that with the scissors in my toolbox” from your dad. Let them have this moment. You get to have these pants.

As seen at Cushnie et Ochs, Monse, Prabal Gurung and Rodebjer

Neck Huggers (Which Sounds So Much Friendlier than “Chokers”)

Neck Huggers (Which Sounds So Much Friendlier than "Chokers")

It’s the Victorian/90’s trend that still feels new — just don’t let it get too literal. An anorak will shake it up. So will a Granny Smith cardigan or any pairing that adds some paradox.

As seen at Adam Selman, Alexander Wang, Creatures of the Wind, Dion Lee, Diane von Furstenberg, Jill Stuart, Jonathan Simkhai, Katie Ermilio, Marchesa, Monse, Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone, Ralph Lauren, Reem Acra, Rodarte, Rodebjer, Rosie Assoulin, Tommy Hilfiger, Zimmermann

Cliché, Yes, But Let’s Dub this Trend “The Cold Shoulders

Cliché, Yes, But Let's Dub this Trend "The Cold Shoulders"

As seen at Adam Selman, Carolina Herrera, CG, Cushnie et Ochs, Delpozo, Dion Lee, Jonathan Simkhai, Marc Jacobs, Naeem Khan, Prabal Guring, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Rodebjer, Rosetta Getty, Rosie Assoulin, Sophie Theallet, Tibi, Tome, Yigal Azrouël, Zac Posen, Zimmermann

Almond Milk, Soy Milk, Half & Half or Whole

Almond Milk, Soy Milk, Half & Half or Whole

Even if you take your coffee black, creamers are the only way you’ll want to do monochrome.

As seen at BCBG, Derek Lam, Jonathan Simkhai, Opening Ceremony, Prabal Gurung, Sally LaPointe, Tibi, Trademark

Fur Collars, Shearling Shrugs and the Versatile Stole

Pardon Me, PETA: Fur Collars, Shearling Shrugs and the Versatile Stole

It’s like a seat belt for your walking clothes.

As seen at Brock Collection, Diane von Furstenberg, Jason Wu, Jonathan Simkhai, Katie Ermilio, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Monse, Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung, Sally LaPointe, Sies Marjan, Sophie Theallet, Suno, Tome, Veronica Beard

Off the Shoulder Still Going Strong (and Great for Wintry Sun Baths)

Just in case you didn’t get sick of it this summer. (I didn’t, either.)

As seen at BCBG, Brock Collection, Christian Siriano, Jason Wu, Jeremy Scott, Marchesa, Monse, Opening Ceremony, Tibi and Yigal Azrouël

Stretchy Sparkle Tops, Formerly of Limited Too

Stretchy Sparkle Tops, Formerly of Limited Too

As seem at 3.1 Phillip Lim, BCBG, Delpozo, Dion Lee, Jeremy Scott, Jill Stuart, Karen Walker, Marc Jacobs, Opening Ceremony, Sies Marjan, Tibi, Vivienne Tam, Zimmermann

Trash Bags and Latex for the OG Domin-matrix, Keanu

Trash Bags and Latex for the OG Domin-matrix, Keanu

With this trend, baby-powder will be your best friend. (But don’t let the Saint Mark’s shiny stuff scare you. Like the neck hugger, pair it with what you’d normally wear and remember the mantra that millennials hate: don’t be too literal.)

As seen in a variety of colors at Adam Selman, DKNY, Marc Jacobs, Monse, Rosie Assoulin, Tome and Trademark

Track & Field Star or Not, Zipper Necks Are a Must

Track & Field Star or Not, Zipper Necks Are a Must

Chas Tenenbaum liked it so he went and put a ring on it.

As seen at Derek Lam, Edun, 3.1 Phillip Lim

And in Honor of the Late David Bowie, a Sartorial Tribute to Ziggy Stardust

And in Unofficial Honor of the Late David Bowie, a Sartorial Tribute to Ziggy Stardust

Metallic: the electric neutral that’s great for everything except blending in.

As seen at Adam Selman, Brock Collection, Creatures of Comfort, Giulietta, Jeremy Scott, Jill Stuart, Monse, Marc Jacobs, Opening Ceremony, Oscar de la Renta, Rosie Assoulin, Sophie Theallet, Suno, Tibi, Tory Burch, Zimmermann

…And if you don’t feel like explaining all of that to your Aunt Agatha, you can always just print this out and hand it over. See you in Milan.

      i m sorry, but i just saw this skirt you commented on another post 15 days ago and i find it quite annoying of you, advertising so shamelessly in the comments section.

      • Nicki

        Hi Alicia,
        We are a small start up and we’re just trying to get the word out there. ManRepeller has an amazing audience that we adore and we want them to see the amazing small designers we carry. I hope that you support small local businesses as they are a huge part of community development. xx

        • Alicia Carolina Meichtry

          i do support small local businesses, in my country, but that has nothing to do with the comment i made earlier. The fact that you may be a small bussiness and sell amazing small designers can t hide that you are making yourself a profit from those sells. I like the comment section of this site, i find it is a place for sharing and interchanging, but you are not commenting with your products once in a while when something reallly goes with the topic, but instead you go constantly trying the post to match the clothes you are selling. That is advertising, and is a paid service. I wish you the best of the lucks in your start up, but what you are doing feels like cheating and you may have better results with different attitudes.
