It’s a little too soon to tell if this emerging trend has legs at the rapidly approaching Fashion Weeks in London, Milan, and Paris, but New York Fashion Week designers were practically unanimous in their obsession with the suit. For Fall/Winter 2017, a majority of brands showcased their spin on the menswear staple, proving there are ample ways to incorporate this classic silhouette into your forthcoming fall/winter wardrobe.
In keeping with Public School’s tradition of transforming streetwear into high fashion, the brand’s suits were oversized, mannish, and slit on the sleeves, while Jason Wu and Oscar de la Renta took the look to more feminine territory by showcasing their respective versions in pastel pink.
Within the overarching suit trend at NYFW, we also noticed two micro trends that extended to other styles on the runway; a healthy portion of suits were either oversized and neutral or covered in checkered patterns. Victoria Beckham, Noon by Noor, and Ryan Roche all showed their takes on baggy, camel-colored suits, while Gabriela Hearst, Haus Alkire, and Jason Wu opted for optical checkers on their looks.
