Trendy Thursday: NYFW Recap

Happy Valentine’s Day, Le Chic fans! Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York comes to a close today with Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. We’ve kept track of some of our favorite looks throughout the week on our NYFW Pinterest board. If you missed out on any of the shows, no worries! Here are the top trends on the runway for Fall 2013:

1. Preppy Prints
Show after show featured some of our favorite preppy prints from plaid to houndstooth. These classic prints always make their way back to the top, so hopefully you’ve already got these stashed in your closet! Otherwise, ’tis the time to invest in some of these pieces. We suggest a blazer or coat so you can easily mix and match it with other pieces and get your fair share of wear out of them!

2. Matchy-Matchy
Yes, matching your top to your pants or your handbag is okay. Just be careful to keep your look fresh and not tacky. There’s a difference between sophisticated matching and looking like a clown. These designers portrayed this trend right!

3. Fancy Furs
Furs were also featured in several collections in different colors and forms. Not only will this trend keep you warm, but also make you look like a million bucks! Real fur, faux fur, it’s your preference!

4. Madder Carmine
Madder carmine is the ‘it’ color for fall 2013. You might know this color better as burgundy. Fortunately, anyone can pull this color off.
