Top trends from New York Fashion Week for fall 2020

Vibrant colors and textures defined New York Fashion Week runways for the autumn/winter 2020 season. Spring 2020 NYFW, which wrapped in mid-February with a performance showcase by Marc Jacobs, herald bright hues, retro-inspired fringe and even hot takes on former fashion outcast, the fanny pack. Here are some of the hottest trends from the Big Apple’s catwalks.

True Colors

All black grunge glam made a statement on the 2020 NYFW runways with designers, such as 2 Madison Avenue and Nadine By Nadia unabashingly dressing models in head-to-toe obsidian. But the bigger trend bucks dark hues in flavor of vibrant colors. Think: turquoise, bright pink, soft yellow, neon blue, lime green and highlighter orange.

Shine On

You may need to put on your shades. Slick materials, metallic threads and 3M reflectives made the runways of NYFW extra shiny this season. The luminous materials catch the light after at particularly gray winter. Designer Bingyao Cheng doubled up on trends with a multi-colored reflective trench while designer Manishi opted for a slick shine in neutral.

Fanny Pack Frenzy

Before you roll your eyes, these are not your neon vinyl fanny pack from the ’80s and ’90s. This season,fanny packs were in traditional silhouettes made from repurposed material mini-canteens and jumbo sized bags. Like it or not, experts say this trend is here in a big way.

On The Fringe

Go ahead and give it a twirl. A little sassy-meets-retro equals a fun fashion trend. Nothing gives you more movement than a fringe moment. There is no one way to rock the look. Designers showcased various lengths and colors so it’s easy to own your take on the style.

Puffer Power

Maybe Jerry Seinfeld was onto something? 2020 NYFW designers seem to have caught on to the puffed up look. Nothing’s warmer and cozier than a puffer jacket in the winter, and designers reimagined the traditional puffer and brought us not only puffer jackets, but gowns, scarves and, yes, puffed up sleeves.

Something Blue

Each December, when the colorphiles at the Pantone Color Institute announce a Color of the Year, people listen. The instantly-influential dictates everything from home decor to fashion. In 2020, classic blue is the Color of the Year, and there was no shortage of the calming hue on the runways.
