We've seen the collections, picked up the trends, and now it's time to decide just what we'll be wearing from the runways. There were major themes — layering, minimalism, and modern tribal among them — but how do those big ideas apply to you? We've sifted through all the looks, and here are our top 15 most chic and wearable trends coming from New York Fashion Week.
With all of the creativity — the diverse ingenuity of designers at Fashion Week — there is at least one common denominator among the collections. For Fall 2011, designers across the board are embracing a definitively longer hemline in the form of calf-length dresses and skirts. We've seen printed versions at ADAM, pencil silhouettes at Michael Kors, and the same, longer hemline on leather at Altuzarra. So, whether you like yours ladylike, with pleats, or perhaps a little sheer — it's time to start perusing the trend and finding the style that suits you for Fall. Click through for a glimpse of longer hemlines on the runway.
