Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has drawn to a close here in New York City, and we couldn’t be more excited about Fall 2012! It’s a season of clothing made for strong, independent and cool women — just how we like to think of all the Gilt.com shoppers. A decided new color palette has emerged, office-appropriate clothing has never looked more appealing, and outerwear took a new turn in the spotlight. Here are some of our favorite trends and shows. You can read all of our Editorial Director Melissa Liebling-Goldberg’s coverage of the shows on Stylelist.com, where she was a featured guest blogger for the week.
DARK TIMES: Neons took a backseat for the season with a sophisticated palette of navy, charcoal, ivory, tomato red (left at Michael Kors), hunter green, mustard yellow, peacock blue and the standout oxblood (above right at DKNY). Black is back, turning up on almost every single runway in multiple looks.
MAN’S WORLD: Menswear-inspired pantsuits were a major trend for the season, done in everything from traditional tweeds (Ralph Lauren, center) to bright red and soft pastels. Complementary sheaths mirrored the corner office effect for those who favor dresses.
FULL COVERAGE: Outerwear became a focus this season, with lots of leather, fur and heavy wools. The puffer coats and anoraks we’ve seen in previous seasons took a backseat to a more grown-up and dressy approach. Belted coats below the knee in simply sleek shapes stood out, and the classic double-breasted peacoat got extra mileage.
