The 6 Biggest Trends at New York Fashion Week 2020
Big Big Shapes
Find your shape takes on a new meaning this season. Silhouettes are leveling up and getting a lot bigger. Sure, they might be the most wearable but they sure do make a big statement. At Area the statement is I love you whereas at Carolina Herrera the sentiment is I love me and so here I am as a ruffle.

Good morning Upper East Siders! Is the uniform look back again? Box pleated skirts, plaid, and tweed were frequently used fabrics this season. From the after school equestrian at Self Portrait to the garage band safety pin wearer at Monse, we’re getting a front row show to a new wave of preppy. It’s no longer about headbands and now all about great tailoring (regardless of what clique you are).
We thought we had seen it all when it came to blazers (oversized, big shoulders, printed, etc.) but this season we’re seeing cropped blazers. Eckhaus Latta matched their with an equally sliced mini skirt while Christopher John Rogers created an on-stage performance worthy suit. A cropped blazer adds a sense of unexpected drama to a look.
Hips Don’t Lie
We’ve seen cut-out clothing go just about everywhere. This season the focus is on your hips! These cut-outs will move when you walk, skip, run. It might be a good opportunity to embrace a visible g-string or invest in some barely there undies. The styling decision is up to you!
