That's a wrap! New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 has come to a close, brimming with a whole new set of trends to look forward to next season (cut-outs, stripes, bermuda shorts, harnesses and relaxed silhouettes, to name a few). Here are highlights from some of this week's best shows:
Stylist Rachel Zoe's empire is ever expanding (hair salon...who saw that coming?), so it's little surprise that she's sticking to her winning formula. Her style has always been laid-back boho chic with a 60s/70s touch and this season fit the bill with mod dresses, loose pantsuits, flowing floor length maxi dresses (a particularly memorable pleated white one was worn with an adorable mini fanny pack), caftans, and lots of jumpers. Flowing looks aside, there were also a number fitted pieces this season; namely slender trousers, cropped jackets, and mini dresses. Bermuda shorts, a popular Spring 2013 style, also made their way out in a variety of color iterations.
It was all about streamlined silhouettes, graphic stripes, and bold shades this season at Michael Kors' minimally embellished Spring 2013 show. Black and primary colors dominated the sleek and sophisticated lineup, though it did include some risqué looks like a striped long sleeve top worn with a front zipper skirt that had its zipper almost completely unzipped, for example. Belted coats, color blocked trousers with a front pleat, skirt suits, and cut-out black gowns made for particularly alluring looks.
OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Delicate daywear (namely dresses and skirt suits) embellished with leather macramé, ruffles, bows, and pleats shown in slender silhouettes dominated Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2013 lineup. With sixty looks there was a wide variety when it came to colors and patterns, but for the most part, de la Renta kept things upbeat with brights and pastels.
