The Top Fall 2018 Trends Spotted at New York Fashion Week
Paint The Town Magenta
At the forefront of next season’s 1980s revival is the vibrant hue of magenta. Spotted as a focal point in a growing list of collections—from Alexander Wang to Cushnie et Ochs, Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung, Milly, and more—the striking color is here to take the place as our new favorite shade of pink.

Hosiery In Living Color
Colorful, statement-making tights are making a comeback next season. From electric yellow at Adam Selman to pretty pastel shades at Saks Potts and traffic-stopping neons at Jeremy Scott, the color spectrum of hosiery is wide and varying next season.
A deep, dusty pink shade better known as mauve hasn’t seen this much love since its debut in living rooms across America in the late ‘80s. Consider this flattering shade a grown up millennial pink—done up on a dramatic evening look at Brandon Maxwell, on a leather mini dress at Zimmermann and in high shine patent leather at the reigning king of color, Sies Marjan.

Animal prints are wilder and more colorful than ever for fall. Offered up in striking hues of neon at both R13 and Tom Ford, the classic leopard look is getting a throwback-inspired makeover that channels both the ’80s and early ’90s.
Zimmermann, Brock Collection, and Jonathan Simkhai all had Victorian-era pirate vibes in mind for fall—corseting and ruffles included. The waist reigns in this ultra-feminine modernization of a medieval moment.
