NYFW TREND SPOTTING

Fashion month is a time to be inspired. Whether you're directly immersed in the industry, or a passionate consumer, it's hard to deny the impact of others' creativity on sparking your own. While we still have three weeks left to bask in the glow that is runway, I'd like to take a moment to recap the highlights of New York Fashion Week.

There's some trends that simply aren't going away any time soon. Bold trousers is one of them.

Rosie Assoulin and Maryam Nassir Zadeh both go to show that wide legged trousers are no thing of the past. The silhouette is as timeless and versatile as ever, being seamlessly paired with a graphic tee or airy blouse. This trend can easily be seen outlasting the next upcoming seasons.

While chokers have made a resurgence for a little while now, See by Chloé forecasted a classier upgrade on the traditional, edgy necklace. Rather than the typical black, tattoo-like chokers that the original 90s throwback was made of, the look is being replaced with a more delicate scarf look to create a more elevated twist on what could be interpreted as a juvenile trend.

The See by Chloé collection also emphasized the recurrence of long lines, and flowy silhouettes to be contrasted by a barebones décolletage. Fashion loves soft ruffles and skin. If you haven't jumped full force onto the strappy tank bandwagon, go for a bell sleeve.

Many of the Spring 2017 Ready to Wear collections dabbled in atypical textiles for the season. Coach 1941 and Maryam Nassir Zadeh, among other designers, featured leather contrasted by sheer chiffon or silk. The heaviness up top is balanced by the lightness on bottom, continuing the theme of airy silhouettes. The idea of showing off your undergarments is a bit foreign to many, but when fashion speaks, we may as well give it a try, right?

Diet Coke + CFDA + Target = Fashion Dream

How crazy would it be to win $10,000.00, have Zac Posen, Cynthia Rowley and L'Wren Scott choose your design and then have it manufactured and sold in Targets across the nation?! What a dream come true? Well, it happened to one lucky guy named Gustavo Alonso. This is the winning design of the Diet Coke CFDA Young Designer Challenge in honor of the Diet Coke can's new makeover.

I must say that I really want that t-shirt AND I really want that coat dress.

Seriously, that has to be a dream come true for a young 25 year old artist. Check out the video below to see the famous designers give kudos to the winner.

Two weeks ago, you had the chance to use Pinterest to enter to win a trip to New York Fashion week. And today, we're still celebrating the pretty new look of Diet Coke by giving away more 12 packs of the tasting beverage.

To win, just tell me what you think of the Diet Coke can makeover? In or out?
