NYFW Trends: Dress Like An Urban Warrior For Fall 2012

Fall 2012 is showing at NYFW, which means out with the breezy dresses, the delicate prints, the bright shoes and… in with the gloom (which we’re all for). If there’s one look that landed on every major runway, it’s probably what fashion glossies like to call the “urban warrior,” a modern, usually-but-not-always minimal tough girl look for the big city. In other words: lots of leather, sharp and angular silhouettes, combat, knee or thigh-high boots… with loads of military and gladiatorial flourishes in a palette of black and not much else. See Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler and more ahead.

    I just re-read this and the “NYFW Fall Colors trend” pieces since I’m bored of summer clothes already and– “Combat bandage dresses.” HA. I love you so much.

    Also wrong post but: bright red for fall? Did we not JUST DO bright red for LAST fall? boo hiss.
