SUMMARIZING THE RESULTS, held at New York Fashion Week. This article contains eleven trends that we will adapt to our wardrobe throughout this year. However, nothing prevents you from starting to do this right now.

In the next season, designers propose adding a new accessory to the wardrobe - false collars. Including we are talking about modern counterparts of the cutter, only less lush and complex. Examples of discreet models were shown by Brock Collection and Tory Burch - on the catwalk they were combined with jackets and simple sweaters. Others thought of school collars or extravagant feather boas that can be worn with classic suits or pajama suits. Examples are Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Sies Marjan.
Tie-dye garments hit the runways a couple of seasons ago. Designers loved the idea of custom clothing, although - let's be honest - such "unique" models have long been ubiquitous. All this does not prevent things from looking cool, especially since each brand interprets the pattern in its own way. At Maryam Nassir Zadeh, it appeared on tights and even a down jacket, at Collina Strada - on T-shirts and sweatshirts, and Area was completely painted in a tie-dye skirt with flounces and a top with rhinestones. Kim Shui offered form-fitting dresses, while Prabal Gurung offered sweaters. We feel this is not the end.
One of the most enduring trends. Although slip dresses get more sophisticated every season, they still look great with mules and oversized cardigans. Brands, meanwhile, are offering new combinations. For example, Collina Strada showed a model made of materials of different textures, which was complemented by massive sneakers. Jonathan Simkhai suggested wearing classic silk dresses over the finest turtlenecks or wide trousers, and Sies Marjan agreed with him. And Michael Kors Collection took on the style of the 20s by adding feathers to the slip dress.
Black and white text
A new version of the classic combination of black and white colors: reminds of the popular strip, but looks much more interesting. So, Jeremy Scott dedicated a whole collection to print from text, complementing it with black and white hairstyles of models in the manner of Cruella De Ville. Longchamp presented b / w jackets and trousers - on the catwalk they were combined with things in "animal" prints. Area and Rodarte have even more examples of a fresh pattern.
Knitted total bows
You want to dress up in everything warm and cozy all year round: you cannot count on the mercy of the weather. Designers understand this and offer to pay attention next fall to plain combinations of long skirts, sweaters and even shorts, complementing them with shawls, gloves and leggings. The color scheme can be any, and yet the favorite shades of the week are beige and gray. Examples include Self-Portrait, Brock Collection, Gabriela Hearst, Michael Kors Collection, and Oscar de la Renta.
Clothes with decorative holes, slits and a scorched edge appear on the catwalks often, but this Fashion Week deliberately unkempt details were literally everywhere. For example, Proenza Schouler got a bold layered look thanks to the slit sweater, the cut hem of the Kim Shui dress imitated fringe, and the Eckhaus Latta sweater with transverse holes was suggested to be worn directly on the naked body. You can follow the example of Zadig & Voltaire by wearing a transparent top with rhinestones or mesh under a simple sweater with holes.
Things on one shoulder
This trend seems to have moved into the category of timeless classics like plaid and stripe. It doesn't matter which era the designers turn to - dresses and blouses with one shoulder can be found in every second collection. At 3.1, Phillip Lim, for example, presented laconic one-sleeve tops that are easy to imagine in your everyday wardrobe. The same goes for Eckhaus Latta, which featured a cozy, single-strap terry mini dress. But Self-Portrait and Oscar de la Renta have got classic jumpsuits, tops and dresses with ruffles that open the shoulders.
If you are tired of classic jackets and blazers, choose a model with an asymmetrical cut or sewn from different materials - such were shown by Jonathan Simkhai, Calvin Luo and Proenza Schouler. They diversify the office wardrobe and harmoniously fit into the everyday. Remember the main thing: any conditionally "unusual" clothing can become boring in the same way as the basic one.
The general nostalgia for the 90s continues, and designers are again turning to grunge. A harbinger of the return of this style was the reissued collection of Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis, which the designer created in 1992. At the last New York Fashion Week, they presented stretched black sweatshirts, oversized jackets worn over a hoodie, striped jeans painted like a spray can, jackets made of worn denim, chunky boots and much more. There are also torn clothes and models with a tie-dye print. Examples can be found in Collina Strada, Eckhaus Latta, John Elliott, R13 and others.
Utility has been trying to capture the world's catwalks for several seasons in a row. Huge pockets, detachable parts, secret compartments - all this should be in comfortable and versatile clothes, in which it is not scary to go for a walk or in the mountains. But since many fashionistas do live in the city, useful details are shifting from sportswear to casual wear. Bulky pockets, for example, can be seen on jackets, trousers, skirts and, of course, jackets in the collections of Adeam, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Eckhaus Latta, John Elliott, Palm Angels.
Strass and chains in your hair
Jewelry and large hairpins with rhinestones - a tribute to the eighties or zero - appeared last season. The past New York Fashion Week confirms: soon they will be absolutely everywhere. The most impressive show with an abundance of rhinestones came from Area: multi-colored stones were woven into the hair of the models as if it was a whole wig, not a decoration. At The Blonds show, one could see both hats made of chains and an unusual manicure, which used long strips of rhinestones. And real balaclavas made of crystals were in the final bows at the shows of Christian Cowan and Christian Siriano - in the latter one could also see chains woven into the models' hair.
