This week, we’re catching up on the latest from every fashionista’s favorite event: New York Fashion Week. Always filled with competitive designers, funky clothes and the latest trends, this highly-anticipated showcase turns many heads.

This year, the event was held from Tuesday, Sept. 7, to Thursday, Sept. 15, right over the bridge in the Big Apple. With over 100 designers, countless models and thousands of new outfits, New York Fashion Week is definitely something you want to follow. But if you were too busy studying, don’t worry — I’ve got you covered.

According to Fashionista, this year’s fashion show exposed at least nine new trends. Famous designer Ryan Lobo revealed that this season’s styles have been “about clothes that are happy or that make women happy,” and yes, that makes me happy.

The first of many trends that were prominent on the runway  this year was primary stripes. The bold, bright colors are an easy way to make a statement. I’m not too sure if I would enjoy wearing primary stripes since I love neutral colors, but it could be fun to mix it up a little.

Along with the primary-colored stripes, one color that stood out at New York Fashion Week is pink — all different shades, from blush to neon pink, could be found on the runway this year. We also saw a lot of cool, white sweatshirts that balanced out all the pink. Now this trend is more my style. A white crewneck is a basic staple that every closet should have.

This year’s fashion show also featured a variety of robes. You heard that right — fancy bathrobes made their way to runway. Those of you reading at home in your sweatpants and robes do not need to feel bad, as it seems comfort is back in style this season.
