Hottest Colors: New York Fashion Week Spring 2012

188 runway shows later, New York Fashion Week is finally over. But we’ve yet to discuss the most important part – what are we all going to be wearing next spring?!
Orange
is one of the hottest colors of the season. It was on skirts and jackets, gowns and pants, on every imaginable fabric, in an absurd amount of collections. Whether it’s tangerine or pumpkin, carrot or ginger, orange is here to stay.

But why limit ourselves to one ridiculous summery color when we can also don the brightest yellows imaginable? For every orange gown on the runway, there was a sunny yellow counterpart refusing to be ignored.

The little black dress is such a wardrobe staple that women need an abbreviation for it (LBD). As we’ve all seen, this year’s red carpet left behind the LBD in favorite of the LND (that’s a little nude dress), much to my frustration as it became more and more ubiquitous. However, we can say goodbye to nude for now, because now that has been eclipsed by . . .
the little white dress.

  1. I LOVE the yellow Monique Lhuillier gown! I wish I could wear yellow near my face, but alas, it makes me look puke-y. But I can rock awesome yellow shoes!

    Glad that irritating nude dress trend has been replaced by white dresses. They’re better.
