NYFW, Day One

Day one of the FW 2015 collections has come and gone, giving us a somewhat of an indication of some of the things that are coming up trend-wise in the next year. While I'm not actually in New York for Fashion Week, I set up shop at my desk yesterday and had the live feed consistently going throughout the day, taking breaks to attempt to get homework done (it was a lost cause after the BCBG Max Azria show).

Common themes that I noticed throughout all of the shows that I watched were turtlenecks (can you hear me rejoicing all the way from Ohio?), pastels (mostly lilac), relaxed fits, leather details, Culotte pants, and a whole lot of layering.

Bear with me, as I have a ton of my favorite looks from the collections thus far.

Look 29 from Coach

I love the sheer, printed overlay on top of the simple black mini skirt. The neutral toned top doesn't hurt either, especially with the geographic elements on the sleeves.

Look 34 from Tome
The risqué slit is what transforms this simple dress into a killer LBD for fall. The floating turtleneck doesn't hurt either ;-)

Look 29 from Creates of Comfort
This takes "sweater dress" to the next level. The draping around the waist is incredible.

Look 8 from Sachin & Babi
Probably the simplest of my favorite looks thus far, but there's just something about a well fitting graphic sweater and pair of deep teal pants that gets me.

Look 11 from ZAC Zac Posen

I am a lover of all things oversized, and this tent like dress/tunic is calling my name with its colors and generally boxiness.

Look 21 from See by Chloé

The layered look with the long sleeved shirt underneath is so reflective of middle school, yet I was planning what to wear over my black turtleneck whilst gazing lovingly at this photo...

Look 25 from See by Chloé
Other than the fact that the color of this playsuit is a gorgeous blush shade and the perforation pattern is a perfect way to carry on spring and summer into the fall months. I especially love the fringy hems of the shorts. It gives the delicate outfit a bit more edge.

Look 2 from Rebecca Taylor
I saw the color of this coat and praised hallelujah for its existence. I am all sorts of heart eyes over this color right now. Pastels are in again! Or at least, I'm declaring that they are at this moment.

Top row: Looks 10, 15, and 30 from Honor
Bottom row: Looks 17, 19, and 33 from Honor
The overall wilderness theme, with the background and the motif of animals in the patterns on the clothes, was such a cute incorporation. The pops of colors throughout the collection were fab as well, using reds and fuchsias to stand out against the whites and neutral patterns.

Top row: Looks 4, 8, and 9 from Tadashi Shoji
Bottom row: Looks 20, 28, and 37 from Tadashi Shoji

Tadashi Shoji's show yesterday was quite possibly the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed, and I've heard Zayn's solos from "Moments" and "You & I" live so that's definitely saying something. Such an ethereal and flowy collection, featuring a lot of fringe, jewels, and any sort of accents that had good movement (soft tulle, feathers, chiffon). All of the models wore thick gold glitter eyeliner that was the perfect touch for the show.

Top row: Looks 2, 9, and 13 from BCBG Max Azria
Bottom row: Looks 20, 24, and 29 from BCBG Max Azria
BCBG Max Azria was on another earthy, bohemian level, and still managed to incorporate all of the best parts about fall. One of my notes for this show was "TURTLENECKS!!!!" so I made sure to showcase some of my favorite turtlenecks. I would sail the seven seas for the coat in look #13. 

Does this format work? Is there anything that you'd like to see more/less of? Let me know!
