Since we’re in the middle of murky February there’s been one thing on our minds recently—spring fashion. But when Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week hits New York twice a year, our mindsets time warp into thinking two seasons ahead—a.k.a. a full year. So while it’s not the best gauge of what to wear right now, the fashion is always fun to look at. Take a peep at some of the best/worst trends I spotted and vote on your faves/fails.
Prints always pack a punch on the runways, but this season the patterns were subdued versions of tried ‘n’ true favorites. At Rebecca Taylor, the loud spotty prints a la leopard of the past few MBFW seasons took a cooler turn in quieter colors. And Mara Hoffman updated her ode to Mexi-inspired prints from spring/summer with a toned-down color palette.
The verdict: Since some of the patterns that walk the runway are statements in and of themselves, it’s nice to see them offered in more wearable colors. I say yes!
