While Fashion Week is one of the best times to take note of upcoming trends for the next couple of seasons, it is also a great place to drink up some outfit inspiration. Although you may not be able to purchase all of the runway looks that you fell in love with, there are still ways that you can bring the essence of the runway styles into outfits that you already own. Here are some style hacks that OROGOLD has learned from Fashion Week.
Double Up on Your Jackets
Doubling up on your jackets is is a great way to keep warm during falling temperatures, while looking stylish at the same time. Models walking for J. Crew were sporting two lightweight blazers, one on top of the other, rather than just a single jacket. OROGOLD recommends opting for subtle prints, such as a light striped blazer underneath a light checked blazer.
Get Creative with Button-Down Shirts
As OROGOLD mentioned earlier, these hacks are here to help you to make the most out of clothes that you already own, and everybody is bound to own at least one button-down shirt. On the Desigual runway, these shirts were given a new life by being cleverly reworked into an asymmetrical cover-up. The next time you find yourself about to tie a shirt around your waist, try getting more creative and looking for other ways that you can work it into your outfit.
Accessories are a great way to liven up your wardrobe without having to max out your credit cards, and OROGOLD spotted some great ones at Fashion Week. The ones that made an appearance across many catwalks, from Neem Khan to Mara Hoffman, were thick, statement headbands, keeping hair well away from the face. From block colors to bright prints to classic hues, these headbands are totally practical while being a great way to express your personal style.
Everything Can Be Layered
Layering is something that we all do when we need to stay warm, usually with t-shirts under jumpers under jackets. However, Fashion Week has taught us to open our minds when it comes to layering, with the hack that OROGOLD mentioned above, doubling up on jackets, being a perfect example of this. You may have a dress with a plunging neckline that you don’t often wear out, so try wearing a contemporary shirt underneath, making it much more daytime-friendly. Or, try wearing a mini dress over a midi dress, just as they did on the Hugo Boss runway, for a look that is instantly chic.
Fashion Week is a place where designers express themselves, giving us a peek into their creative minds, while showing us what we can be expecting in the upcoming season. It is also a place where we can get so much inspiration to help our own personal style to evolve, so take a look back at OROGOLD’s Fashion Week hacks the next time you want to add a new dimension to your outfit.
