While we love fall fashions best, this particular New York Fashion Week was a killer! The weather would not cooperate! It may have slowed us down a bit, but it certainly did not stop us from attending as many shows as we could. Next fall will prove to be another season of must-haves. Problem is, we want them right now as this is shaping up to be the never-ending winter. It took a while for the trends from New York Fashion Week to emerge. Between the ever-present leather, to fur to sweaters…we have a lot to cover. Let’s get started on Fall/Winter 2014 fashion trends!

Fur Baby!

PETA is not going to like this trend at all. Fur was everywhere, in every form and in every color. We are not talking faux either, but the real deal. No fur was too big or too small when it came to the Fall ’14 runway. Fur trim should probably be in the accessories category, but there was nary one designer that did not attach fur in some way or some part of their collection.

Outerwear

Another breakout trend when it comes to outerwear for Fall ’14 is shearling. There was everything from sueded to sheered shearling on the runway. Some pieces were color-blocked while others were mixed with leather embellishments. Either way, start saving your pennies for one of these coats and make a statement next fall.

Oversized coats were literally HUGE (pun intended) which makes them perfect for fitting over another trend of the season – layering (more on that below). If you feel frumpy simply tie a big belt (another big trend) around your waist to pull it together.

Materials

Good news for those of you who invested in an expensive pair of leather pants or a midi leather skirt this season (or right now go buy some on sale), because the leather trend is showing little sign of disappearing. Same goes for suede.

When it comes to skirts the midi reigned supreme. But don’t fret, there were other styles to love as well. Mini skirts are so passe. Even the shorter ones hit right above the knee.

The biggest pant trend by far for fall ’14 is the relaxed and slouchy pant. Great news if you are over squeezing into your skinny jeans. That said, we really didn’t see much in the way of denim. However, cropped pants and leather leggings were still present.

Slouchy Pants: Brandon Sun, Christopher Kane, Michael Kors (pictured above), 3.1 Phillip Lim, Sally La Pointe, The Row, Alexander Wang, BCBG, DKNY, Helmut Lang, J. Mendel, Jason Wu, Jenny Packham, Nicholas K, Wes Gordon, Rebecca Taylor, Elie Tahari, Victoria Beckham

Sweaters, sweaters, sweaters – they were everywhere! Sweater dressing is most assuredly going to be one of the breakaway trends for Fall ’14. The chunkier and larger, the better. The way we saw them worn most was either with an a-line skirt (just above the knee or midi) or with slouchy pants. Easy as that.

Chunky Sweaters: Sally La Pointe, The Row, Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang, Elizabeth & James, Helmut Lang, Michael Kors, Nicholas K, Oscar de la Renta, Rag & Bone, Vera Wang, Yigal Azrouël, Opening Ceremony, Prabal Gurung

Knitwear Outfits/Knit Dressing (head-to-toe): Calvin Klein, The Row, Sally La Pointe, Derek Lam, Helmut Lang, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Rag & Bone, Yigal Azrouël, Edun

The emphasis for fall ’14 is layering which is great news if we have another winter like this one! Turtlenecks were layered under dresses, sweaters and even button-down style shirts. Skirts and dresses were layered over pants and long johns effortlessly.
