Live from New York Fashion Week: our favorite spring trends from the runway.

By Brennan Kilbane


 THE PALETTE

Crimson

Pastels and faded brights were a designer favorite this season, but it was the bold, fiery hues of Anna Sui, Dion Lee and Jill Stuart that stood out. The largely-monochromatic looks looked surprisingly wearable—the perfect antidote to post-winter blues.

THE STYLE

Off-the-Shoulder

 A slew of off-the-shoulder looks, from glammed-up dresses to airy tunics, lent subtle sex appeal to everything from a pair of denim shorts to a printed full skirt.

THE MUST-HAVE

Shirtdresses 

The enduring wardrobe favorite goes chic for Spring 2016. Needless to say, we'll be seeing a marketable variety of shirtdresses come Spring—from the uber-chic (Philip Lim) to the adapted classic (Tomas Maier).

THE PRINT

Tie-Die

Upping the contrast: tie-dyed fabrics gave sultry silhouettes a more playful face, like Altuzarra's leg-baring cotton dress or BCBG's cutout gown. This is decidedly not your summer-camp stain—however, the print proved a great way to imbue otherwise serious garments with much-needed Spring leisure.

THE SILHOUETTE

Relaxed-Fit Pants

"Relaxed" is a word not commonly associated with New York Fashion Week, yet the runway was dominated with looser, freer cuts and shapes. We love the pants especially, tempered and not slackened: J.Crew's wide-legs featured masterful pleating, while a Phillip Lim trouser was done in a botanical-printed silk.
