I know everyone’s been going gaga about the start of fall, but at Love Inc. we’ve been even more excited about Fashion Week season. A couple of weeks ago, New York Fashion Week hit the Big Apple and it was bursting with youth and vibrance. So many obvious trends hit the runways, like asymmetrical hems and ruffles, but one that was a clear winner for me was the prevalence of suiting.
Across the board, in both women’s and men’s shows, suits showed up constantly. Especially in women’s designs, I think we’re going to see way more suiting options, more interesting cuts and a wider range of styling options in the coming year. On the runways we saw casual suits in unstructured silhouettes, formal blazers and jackets with tons of shine and full suits in bright colors and patterns.
However, with most of the fashions we see on the runways, what walks down the aisle is usually distilled down into something more practical in shops and boutiques. And it’s these trends that we’re talking about here, those more practical ones that we’ll more than likely see in weddings next spring and summer. Though there were tons of cool suit designs and stylings, these are the ones we love for next year’s warm weddings.
It looks like we’re going to be seeing big, bold, bright patterns on suits next year. For weddings, I think this is going to translate into bold pieces being paired with neutrals to create unique, custom looks. Spotted On: Trina Turk, Badgley Mischka, Ralph Lauren POLO
This neutral is going to be REALLY big next year, which is great for weddings because it’s light and makes a great foundation color for bright accents and florals. Spotted On: Ralph Lauren POLO, Elie Tahari, Tom Ford
We saw pink in almost every show, but this pastel version made a big impact in suits for both men’s and women’s runways. This soft hue makes for a great wedding suit palette either as a solo piece or a full suit. Spotted On: Milly, Diane Von Furstenberg, Prabal Gurung
Charcoal suits may be a popular go-to for weddings suits, but this lighter gray made several appearances on runways. Great for both formal and informal, this color is definitely going to be a popular one. Spotted On: Assembly NY, Badgley Mischka, Burberry
