New York’s Fashion Week is well underway and the new trends are, well, trending. Social media, and TV alike are buzzing about several designer collections that were inspired by the 1970s, and many influential style icons who were dresses in the Boho Chic look.
Olivia Palermo’s Seventies Look
Celebrity and Socialite Olivia Palermo showed off a very 1970s styled wardrobe throughout the week. Here her long wide leg pants, and ethnic print jacket are create a look that is very boho chic. Olivia is often considered an early adopter of trends, if not a trend-setter in her own right, so we should all keep a watchful eye on what she is wearing. Notice how long her legs look in all of the photos in Vogue’s NYFW Street Style Post!
Boho Chic Takes Over New York
Besides Olivia, the bohemian theme was very strong this year as you can see from the above snapshot of Rebecca Minkoff’s Runway. Vintage Chic Boho dresses in particular were on display everywhere from Anna Sui to Tory Burch, and we are really happy about that. We have often felt that Boho style was under-appreciated as it is so much fun and easy to wear. Loose fitting shapes with lots of movement allow for creativity and whimsy. And with so many options from wide leg pants, and flowing maxi dresses, to cropped tops, and floppy hats, the trend is flattering on everyone. Shop all 1970s Vintage Clothing here.
A New York Fashion Week First
No fashion week would be complete with some firsts. Our favorite of this year is Jamie Brewer becoming the first model with Down syndrome to walk at NYFW. Brewer modeled as part of Carrie Hammer’s “Role Models Not Runway Models” campaign, wearing an original design by Hammer. Check out the whole article on People.com.
