What We’ll Be Seeing in the Streets at the Spring ’15 Shows
It’s really happening: New York fashion week is almost here. With our recent street-style photos for inspo, we’ve made a few predictions for the off-catwalk trends showgoers will be rocking next month. It’s all but assured that flats will be a thing. It’s hard to go from Birkenstocks to stilettos overnight, after all. Instead of heels, we expect to see sensible yet stylish flatforms and sporty trainers like Dior’s embellished Spring ’14 Haute Couture kicks, even if our colleague Maya Singer thinks fashion may be overdue for a sneaker backlash. Taking cues from the recent Resort collections, we’ll be pairing our comfortable shoes with bohemian maxi dresses and floor-grazing skirts, as well as skinny silk scarves like the ones we spotted on Prada’s Fall ’14 runway. Despite the balmy forecast, we’re betting a few girls will be eager to trot out their chunky new sweaters and relaxed, borrowed-from-the-boys suits. Other Spring ’15 street-style predictions: high-waisted flares (thank you, Nicolas Ghesquière); Hood by Air logos (yes, the streetwear movement is still going strong); mod minidresses; and single, statement-making earrings.
Here, a slideshow of 12 street-style predictions for the Spring ’15 shows.
