Fall/Winter 2024 Trends From New York Fashion Week


As New York Fashion Week (and its star-studded front rows and the attendee’s head-turning street style) comes to a dazzling end, there were plenty of spectacular style moments and design inspirations that have us already daydreaming about future fall wardrobes.

The catwalks were awash with swaths of gowns rendered black and white and beautiful bouffant hairdos evoking the glamour of Truman Capote’s socialite swans. The stark hues met their fiery match with radiant reds, signaling a continuation of the color trend we saw at the Grammy’s a few weeks ago.

Elsewhere on the color spectrum, liquid-like silvers and molten-like metallics shimmered as they sashayed down the runways. Oddly enough, opulent orange felt fresh for fall and a must-have hue to imbue your closet with. Officewear offerings felt festive with tinsel-like fringe and fanciful flare. On the practical yet impossibly chic side of separates, many of the coats we saw left us ready and willing to shed our current outerwear for more exquisite pieces.

Read up on seven of the best fashion trends from New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2024.

Bows came back in a big way (did they ever really leave?!). From headbands to flats and embellishments to embroideries, there seemed to be a touch of twee for each and all. Sandy Liang featured playful bows with a standout pink dress that looked like a walking gift from the fashion gods. Coach and Wiederhoeft weren’t shy about their affections for knots, taking their bows beyond the prim and proper scale, blowing them up to gigantic proportions, and splattering them about from head to hemline.

C-Suite Chic Coats

New York Fashion Week introduced a plethora of corporate chic pieces that revolutionized the notions of typical C-suite attire. Suiting and twinsets were tailored in new and surprising ways as seen on the runways of Fforme, Michael Kors Collection, and Proenza Schouler. Brands such as Retroféte and Ulla Johnson played with pinstripes to offer more feminine options of the classic men’s style, which is a refreshing choice to add to your wardrobe. Regardless of what collection you favor, countless options will take your corporate uniform to new heights.

Molten Metals

Models in metallics looked like they stepped right off the silver screen at New York Fashion Week. However, these weren’t your typical futuristic metallics that feel rigid and look robotic; rather, the pieces from designers like Anna Sui, Christian Siriano, and Jason Wu felt as if molten metals were poured upon their frocks, giving them a rustic, lived-in texture that felt like an innovative approach to such a tried and true trend.

Orange Theory

The color orange made a splash in numerous collections during New York Fashion Week and really juiced things up. Designers leaned into the optimism of orange, featuring an array of citrusy hues in their looks, from powdery pastels at Proenza Schouler and ombre orange sequins at Pamella Roland to neon shades at Helmut Lang. So step away from neutral colors and find your orange crush this autumn.

Office Party

Elsewhere in the ready-to-wear realm, classic officewear separates like blazers and jackets felt festive when styled with tinsel-like fringe boas seen at Tory Burch or had fanciful flare like the ruffle necklines at Altuzarra. Both brands had plenty to celebrate as they sent down collections that expanded the idea of how chic separates could be styled in new, exciting ways that have us reimagining not only our closets but our style as well. Libertine and Private Policy took a more-is-more approach with their officewear offerings, embellishing them with countless sequins and grommets for the maximum wow factor.

Royal Flush

After setting runways ablaze last fall and the carpets of awards seasons, radiant reds continued to take over the collections at this season’s New York Fashion Week. Fiery hues lit up the runways from LaQuan Smith to Sergio Hudson, with everything from luxe tailoring to slinky slips rendered in a lush red palette that will surely heat things up once they hit stores this fall. Brands like Christian Cowen and Rotate amplified their pieces with shiny red sequins and star motifs, which added humor to the otherwise sultry, intense hue.

Swan Song

New York designers from Badgley Mischka to Carolina Herrera took note from Ryan Murphy’s hit show Feud: Capote vs. The Swans and dressed their models in grand regalia that recalled the over-the-top fashions of the show’s pivotal Black and White Ball. Swaths of ballgowns rendered in those two stark hues evoked the glamour of a bygone era. The black-and-white trend also found its way onto the runways of Prabal Gurung and Batsheva, the latter of which even had Molly Ringwald, who plays the swan Joanne Carson on Feud, strut her stuff down the runway in a demure black dress.
