New York Fashion Week Recap: 5 Trends to Try

It's been an extremely exciting last two weeks with New York & London fashion weeks wrapping up. The top designers in the world sent their collections down the runway and the great news is that there is plenty of trends that can work for the curvy girl in her closet.

As you guys know, I partnered up with Simply Be this season to be their official New York & London Ambassador. I was so excited to work with a plus brand to cover fashion forward trends and items that are relevant to us as consumers AND with a brand that would help give us access to them.

Despite so few designers still incorporating plus into their collections, the great news is that Simply Be can give you access to all of those trends. They asked me to help put together some options of how you can make the trends on the runway work with their pieces. I gladly accepted the challenge and found it to be no challenge at all. They have tons of great items that you can incorporate into your closet that we saw coming down the runways. And even though the trends were for Spring, you can get ahead of the game and start working them into your closet now.

So here are five of my favorite trends from New York Fashion Week and ways you can incorporate them into your closet right now.

1.) 90s Bad Girl:

Designers like Jason Wu, Tadashi Shoji, Rodarte & Rag and Bone definitely brought the 90s back to life with their collection.

I'm sure you have all noticed the resurgence of the decade's  looks coming back back into fashion and while I can't get behind every single 90s style coming back (remember those awful shiny sneakers?), I can definitely get excited about edgy use of PU and leather, combat boots and tartan. But this season, it's more glamorous than it is punk and it can easily work in your closet.

2.) Urban Safari

The safari trend is one of those that comes and goes constantly, so it will never really fully go out of style. It's dominated by classic pieces like white shirts, khakis, greens and animal print. DVF, Jason Wu & Nicholas K all gave a new spin to the look, and it's easy to adapt into your closet.

Start with a classic trench coat and an animal print blouse or skirt. If you're not into animal print clothes, you can always opt for using it on a scarf or a piece of jewelry. Then, a classic white shirt is always a great way to build on it, and add army green pieces via pants or a blouse.

Check out some of these options from Simply Be (I'm particularly obsessed with that tiger t-shirt and the green dress.

3.) Art Deco and the Great Gatsby.

Who doesn't love seeing beautiful beading and cool white come down the runway? Again, it's a timeless trend that will always work one way or another in your closet. 

Designers like Naeem Khan, Badgley Mischka & Carmen Marc Valvo sent great pieces down the runways that could have been straight out of a vintage boutique or Leonardo DiCaprio's movie from earlier this year (haha).

I'll be working the trend into my closet this season with a beaded dress and fabulous accessories like statement clutches. And if you're feeling extra fabulous, why not try a fur stole?

4.) 70's Baby

Much like the Urban Safari trend, the 70s just isn't going a way. Think decadent fabrics, sexy flared jeans and wide leg pants and tie-front blouses like the above looks from Michael Kors, DVF, Jenny Packham and Reem Acra.

Try working the trend into your closet with a sexy jumpsuit or flare jeans if you're not 100 percent ready to take the plunge into a gold lame disco dress :)

All above pieces from
5.) Orange Crush

Orange is most definitely going to be the color of the season. It dominated so many of the collections and is a great color that works on most skin tones.

Christian Siriano, Monique Lluihier, and Tommy Hilfiger were big fans of the color this season and the good thing about it is that it is a color that you probably already own.

If you're not ready for a head to toe look, try a blouse with denim, white or a print (avoid mixing it with black so as not to look too-Halloween)

All above pieces from

And there you have it. These top five trends are my favorites, but there are TONS of more options.

Keep an eye out for my London recaps, starting tomorrow! Happy shopping!
