With spring quickly approaching, it is time to turn your attention to the season’s upcoming fashion trends, with some of the hottest ones having been spotted at New York Fashion Week. From energetic stripes to feminine florals, here is all you need to know if you are looking to update your wardrobe for spring 2017.

Energetic Stripes
Stripes often tend to make a comeback in the spring, but rather than featuring delicate pastels, 2017 is all about bold, vibrant and energetic stripes. Just about every color was seen in stripe form on the runways, with graphic primary colors being the most popular, especially when anchored down with a base of black.

80’s Glam
Garments inspired by 80’s glam were also extremely prevalent on the runways of New York Fashion Week, with everything from metallic fabrics to graphic t-shirts. Leather jackets, mini skirts and 80’s inspired sneakers are also set to be popular this season, and can easily be styled with items that you already own to give your look more of a modern edge.

Feminine Florals
Florals are another print that are always a hit in the spring, and while this may not be anything new, this season’s florals are bright, bold and fresh. From Tanya Taylor to Tibi, florals appeared on just about everything on the runways, from long-tiered skirts to ruffled jumpsuits, resulting in many show-stopping outfits.

Ruffles are beautifully feminine, and made a huge appearance at New York Fashion Week, with just about every runway show featuring a certain amount of flounce. However, while some of these looks may have seemed slightly over-the-top, other designers managed to perfectly balance out their ruffles with some tailored sleekness, such as the one-shouldered dress from J. Crew, which also featured stripes, and the voluminous skirt from Zimmerman.

Key Colors
There are always certain colors that dominate each season, and, as seen at New York Fashion Week, the shades that you can expect to see more of this spring are nude colors, such as hazelnut and khaki, as well as soft, pretty shades, with pink being especially popular. However, neon shades have also made a comeback, as seen on the runways of DKNY, Phillip Lim, Jason Wu and so many more, from bright blues to neon greens, promising to add a bright pop of color to any outfit.

Statement Earrings
Statement jewelry has been all the rage for a while, but this trend has usually focused on items such as rings and necklaces, with earrings being neglected. However, New York Fashion Week turned this all around with their incredible selection of statement earrings. From the neon pink shoulder-grazing shapes from Delpozo to the large double hoops from Hellessy, these pieces not only make quite the statement, but also beautifully frame the face and make it the focal point of your look.

Fashion trends are always coming and going, with each season bringing with it new and exciting looks. While some of these trends may be common in the spring, they were all presented in fresh and innovative ways at New York Fashion Week, exuding a huge amount of creativity and style.


OROGOLD Brings You Beauty Tips Learned at New York Fashion Week

Model at New York Fashion WeekNew York Fashion Week is by far one of the most popular fashion weeks in the world and what could be a better place to learn about beauty tricks than one of the most popular fashion shows in the world? Those glamorous looking models all have their own ways of making their skin look so heavenly and flawless. The one thing that we learned about beauty from these models is that the idea is to look glamorous without looking too cosmetic. The idea is to go natural. But, how do you do that? Here are some of the tricks that OROGOLD learned from New York Fashion Week – from fashionistas to designers to models best beauty tips.

Why use false lashes when your real ones can look as good

False lashes might be really popular, but do you really need them? What if we told you that there is a way to make your natural lashes look just as good. Well, that’s what the models of the New York Fashion Week swear by. The secret is simple. All you need to do is add mascara on your real lashes and then add a few small sections of false lashes that look natural. Add another coat of volumizing mascara to complete that heavenly look. There’s another way to get that look for all those of you wanting to stay away from false lashes completely. All you need to do is hold a credit card or visiting card behind your lashes and brush your lashes with some mascara. The effects will be wondrous.


Go easy on your foundation

Contrary to what many would have you believe, using too much foundation is never a good idea. Remember, the lesser foundations you use, the more natural you look. Lesser foundations also mean a less oily look. Remember to use a matte formula on most areas of your face and then top it up with a creamy formula on places that you want to highlight (places like your cheekbones). This should help you get the perfect look and make you look luminous.


Wined eyeliner is not as difficult as it sounds

Winged eyeliner can give a great sense of character to your eyes and they are not too difficult to make either. All you need is a matte black cream formula and an eyeliner pen. The pen helps you to create outline and you can easily buildup the products on them. Use these pens to create the accurate tips and then line the rest of your eye with a cream liner.


Don’t pile on more powder or foundation to hide oily skin

Many people end up piling on their powder and their foundation to hide areas where the skin becomes too shiny. However, this makes them look very plastic. The best solution is to use oil blotting sheets to remove the extra shine. This is much more effective than those foundations and powders.


Use your fingers to give your skin that extra glow

Use your fingers to get that perfect texture with a dewy product. In fact, many at NY Fashion Week were sporting their lipsticks on their cheeks to get the perfect finish.


Learn how to multi-task

Finally, the most important thing that you need to understand is that there is no hard and fast rule when it comes to makeup. Anything that looks good for you is fine. Just as mix and match fashion has become a must in fashion, multi-tasking with your make-up is very important as well. Patting on some lipstick onto your cheeks or using your cheek color on your lips or even under your eyes, anything’s possible in the world of beauty. Remember, you are only limited by your own imagination.
