Gianni Versace once said, “Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you. You decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.” And he’s right, trends should never inform your entire style, but at their best, they are a window into the zeitgeist. They mirror the larger narrative happening within our worlds. Going-out clothes, fun with workwear, sequins for day: These are all markers of ushering in a time of joy after so much fear and uncertainty. Skirts are getting shorter, so life, clearly, is getting better. See what other stories the runways in New York are telling as a premonition to the season overall.
