Between Cardi and Nicki’s brawl, Kendall and Anwar Hadid’s potential romance, and the drool-worthy outfits on the streets of NYC, New York Fashion Week is clearly in full swing. Equally as important to the designer threads coming down the runway are the outfits worn by the celebrity fashion icons sitting front row at all of the shows. Whereas the runway shows give us insight on the upcoming trends for spring, it’s the celebrity street style that clues us in on what the trends are as we head into the current fall season. These are the trends we’ve seen on celebs so far this fashion week, and where you can purchase pieces from these trends for a lot less.
1. ’70s Chic
Supes groovy, the ‘70s trend has ruled celeb street style this NYFW. Kendall Jenner stunned at Longchamp in a gorgeous lace-up purple suede dress, giving us straight Daphne from Scooby Doo vibes. (And no “ruh-roh”, I was all about it.) KJ sat next to fellow supermodel Kate Moss, who also embraced the ‘70s trend with an effortlessly cool fringe jacket. Of course, Paris Jackson got a little too costume-y with the trend, wearing ‘70s flare jeans and a tied-up crop top. But I mean, she is the daughter of Michael Jackson…so like, if anyone’s going to do it, it’s her. Touché, Paris. You can wear this trend for fall without looking like an extra on That ‘70s Show by working in suede pieces, high-waisted bell bottoms, and A-line silhouettes into your current fall wardrobe.
Ever since Kylie wore that fire all-white suit dress to the VMAs, suit dresses have been on everyone’s radar. Kendall Jenner wore a satin blazer dress to Russel James’ Angel book launch party this past week, while Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore a maxi version to the Ralph Lauren show. Suit dresses are an easy fall outfit that automatically looks stylish and chic. This fall, try a suit dress with heels for a dressed-up look, or wear it with sneakers for a more casual and edgy fashion blogger look.
Probably the biggest trend we’ve seen so far amongst celebs this fashion week is feminine sheer fabrics. Celebs have been wearing them in subtle ways and, well, not so subtle ways. Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner both went the not-so-subtle route, wearing head-to-toe sheer bodysuits to NYFW parties. Other celebs, like Olivia Palermo at Ralph Lauren, wore sheer fabrics in a less obvious, more girly, and classy way. Whether you love attention and want to go sheer bodysuit, or want to look more effortless with just a touch of sheer, you’re guaranteed to be on trend for fall by mixing sheer into this season’s wardrobe.
The monochromatic look has been vvv in this summer, but fall puts a small twist on the trend, going in a more tonal direction rather than full-blown monochromatic. This means, you want to create a fall outfit that mixes shades of the same color, rather than just completely wearing the same shade head-to-toe. Barbara Palvin, the model famous right now for dating “Cody” of the beloved Disney series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, wore the perfect tonal outfit to the Boss show. Tons of other celebs also embraced the trend, like Adriana Lima at Tom Ford and Kelly Rowland at Opening Ceremony. For those not brave enough to take on the full monochromatic trend, the tonal trend is def your less risky alternative (plus more currently stylish).
Besides the sheer trend, the other huge trend we’ve seen a lot of so far this NYFW is the popularity of the midi-maxi dress. This dress length, which is longer than the traditional midi but not floor grazing like a maxi, has been worn by almost every A-lister at fashion week so far. They’ve been a go-to for Priyanka Chopra, so obviously you should be doing it too. Anyways, the midi-maxi dress is the perfect dress for fall, and works great paired with all of your fall boots and jackets!
Those are just a few of the trends we’ve seen from the celebs so far at NYFW and, with still a few days left, fingers crossed we’ll get some more celebrity feuds (line through) trends before it ends!
