Lucky Number 7: Get These FW Runway Looks Before they Hit Stores

September 25, 2016

Fashion Week is almost over, but your shopping journey is just beginning! We’ve rounded up 7 of our favorite trends from New York, London and Milan fashion weeks. Best of all, you won’t have to wait until next year to buy them. Thanks to Kristin of Living in Color Print, she’s sourced the best street styles from across the globe, now available on Grabr.

White on White

White might be a “no-no” color for most New Yorkers but this Fashion Week proved different. White Shirt Dresses were everywhere, each seemingly more comfortable than the last. Loose-fitting yet feminine, these shirt dresses are perfect work-wear, whether heading to the office or freelancing from home. Plus, it’s easy to dress white shirts up or down depending on the occasion.

Kristin decided to take creative license with this one, opting for a Unisex 1926 Signature Crew Neck Sweatshirt that is more weather appropriate for winter.

Embellished Straps

Say goodbye to your little black clutch, or at the very least, toss it to the back of your closet. As bold and beautiful as clothing is, sometimes it’s the accessories that really complete the look. We saw handbags of every shape and color, which added an element of surprise at just about every show. From far away, you’ll notice the colors first but a closer look reveals softer design elements.

For Kristin’s collection, she opted for a Handmade Ornate Box Crossbody that speaks to next year’s trends and also fits into London’s multi-cultural street style.

The Statement Choker

Yes, chokers are making a comeback! From Coach to Proenza Schouler, statement chokers made their presence known, even when paired with dangle earrings and fierce makeup. In the case of Thom Browne, a white choker was painted on one of the models to complete her look. Then there was Rag and Bone, whose metal choker only went about 3-quarters of the way around the neck.

After spotting a few chokers in New York City like this Tassel Choker Necklace, Kristen sourced two different styles (available in gold + silver).

Yellow, and lots of it!

Did you know that there’s a psychology of colors? As in certain colors make you feel things. By the looks of it, yellow is definitely a mood booster. The many shades of yellow began gracing the runway in New York, with top designers like Tibi, Sies Marjan, Thakoon and Alexander Wang leading the pack. So, regardless of your skin tone, there’s a yellow hue in your near future.

Kristin went with a fun One-Size Bananas T-Shirt that will instantly brighten your day. London isn’t all rain, all the time. It can be bright as bananas!

Pretty in Pink

Yellow wasn’t the only bold color dominating the runways; pink had quite the showing, too. Pink is always a popular color come London Fashion Week and this season was no exception. Bubblegum pink as well as lighter and darker tones were everywhere, from floor length dresses and floral skirts to larger-than-life hats and detailed embroidery. Pink has never looked this pretty!

Shortly after hitting the London streets, Kristin noticed this trend everywhere she looked. These Oversized Drop Earrings are nothing short of genius.

Midnight Blue Velvet

Love it or hate it, velvet made a major comeback this season, especially Midnight blue velvet. A few designers, like Prada, Ralph Lauren and Vanessa Seward, really nailed this look. While this color isn’t solely a spring/summer color (in fact, it’s great year-round), it did work to balance out some of the more brightly-colored garments. Plus, it matches the night!

When it came time to select Milan’s best street style looks, Kristin chose this Velvet Embroidered Patchwork Bomber Jacket (below) and a multi-purpose tie.

Metal Details

Metal is one trend that never goes out of style but that doesn’t mean you can’t innovate a standard look. It’s interesting to see how designers incorporate the material into his or her work; sometimes it’s in the form of belts or necklaces while other times, metal accents are harder to spot. For Coach, metal fit right into their “rock and roll” collection: prairie dresses, leather jackets, the works.

There’s a bit of metal throughout Kristin’s collection but our personal favorite is this Metal Bar Choker. For $10, you can rock this NYC style in your hometown.
