New York Fashion Week — sadly, it’s a wrap. From behind-the-scenes peeks courtesy of makeup artists‘ and stylists‘ Instagrams to the best geeky moments and our favorite looks scored on a dime, there’s been a lot to talk about. But what does it all really mean? Well, it means you best be wearing at least these four trends come spring/summer 2015. For now, check both the shows out and pieces that you can buy right this very moment.
1. Rustic Meets Refined: This year’s Dannijo presentation was themed around Mongolian travels. The aesthetic reflected the merging of refined and rustic. Leather- and suede-clad models captured a sense of adventure that we definitely want to wrap ourselves in. You can save money on staple pieces like jorts ($20), your boyfriend’s tee, a Pendleton case ($40) and an old jean jacket. Then get ready to splurge on jewels. We’ll be dropping some major dough on gaudy and gorgeous accessories, like Dannijo’s very own canary yellow and black earrings ($295) and silver chain Lilith Necklace ($485).
2. Perforations: As with all fashion weeks, we saw a heavy amount of repetition between brands. One trend that we saw time and time again was perforations. Cutout tops, skirts, pants, even kimonos — everything was sporting that mildly sporty mesh look. Blame it on the high costs of fabric or simply our nation’s current preoccupation with athleticism, but we know what we’ll be wearing next. Ready to rock the look now? We’re digging Forever21’s perforated A-line skirt ($21), Rebecca Taylor’s white punched-denim cargo pants ($165) and this splashy and colorful keyhole dress ($160).
3. Slits: One of our favorite accessories of sorts is the slit. It can do wonders for a simple silhouette and make something otherwise basic, a little bit edgy. And boy were they BIG on the runway this year, y’all. So get ready to do an Angelina. Take your inspiration from Isa Arfen’s show and nab a gray maxi skirt ($150).
4. Your Dad’s Sandals: We saw a continuation of normcore in the Teva-esque sandals cladding Charlotte Ronson’s models. Besides being incredibly comfortable, one of the best parts about this look is you can rock it for a mere $30.
