Red and Pink Everywhere! See the Top Trends from NYFW 2020

New York Fashion Week is coming to a close, so here are some of the top looks from the yearly fashion event.

As New York Fashion Week 2020 comes to an end, we've decided to round up some of the most brilliant looks from the runways. We see a lot of repetition and some of the biggest trends of the year, beautifully portrayed on the runways and on the streets. Here are some looks that stood out.

6 Trends from New York Fashion Week 2020

Strong Statements

We know that oversized bags are in this year, but so are strong messages. LaQuan Smith, one of the designers involved in the show, when asked about his inspiration for his designs replied, "I'm feeling dark. I'm sort of inspired by a woman who is heartbroken and she's sort of regaining her confidence. She's single and ready to mingle." He also stated that he's truly inspired by female empowerment, which he clearly depicts through his work.

Speaking of female empowerment, here's another piece from designer Ka Wa Key Chow that depicts how "sick" we are of toxic masculinity. His work may be a little out there, but he tries to get the message along that gender, sexuality, or age shouldn't matter for anyone to be who they are and to feel good about themselves.

Neon Pink

We just saw neon pink in the image right above this, but here it is again. Neon is a huge trend in 2020, and we've been seeing a lot of it everywhere. Neon Pink also made many appearances during NYFW 2020, just like we see it here on Bella Hadid. She wore this feathery, hot pink ensemble on the runway for Oscar de la Renta.

Designer Jason Wu also incorporated neon pink into his work as well. Depicting the theme sublime romanticism, this hot pink dress with floral imagery is so beautiful it sweeps us off our feet!

Pink and Red

It's not just pink. Red was also a big color during NYFW. Red alone, or red colorblocked with pink - either way, we saw it everywhere. Red sequin and pink sequin, these are so 2020!

An intricate pink lace maxi dress and a bright red background - alice + olivia also captures the trend in this photo.

Look at Gigi in a hot red suit for Proenza Schouler. The metal accessories are a great accent for the simple yet strong and sophisticated look.

Custom Masks

Coronavirus but make it fashion? THE BLONDS in collaboration with PITTA masks allows us to be safe outside while being extremely fashionable! They call it FUNCTIONAL FASHION, apparently.

Florals

Flowers everywhere! I guess floral prints never go out of style. We see Tory Burch florals in blue and yellow, while Veronica Beard gives us cute silky pink florals here worn delicately by Bailee Madison.

Botanical Floral Blooms! Lela Rose's fall collection incorporates natural-looking flowers onto black silky fabric. Again, we see a pattern of yellow and blue flowers on the left, and red and pink flowers on the right.

Sheer Fabrics

We also know that sheer fabrics are a huge trend this year, as portrayed by this stunning milky white dress by Carolina Herrera. Paired with black slacks, this gives a dramatic yet professional look - and paired with the bright red lipstick, just wow.

Last but not least, Vera Wang also impresses the runway with dramatic sheer ensembles in pastel colors. These are again paired with black pants and shorts, which give off a working gal kinda vibe.

One thing that can be seen in all these pieces is femininity interspersed with power, strength, and sophistication. Is this a big theme of the upcoming decade? Which look is your favorite? London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Weeks are also coming up so don't miss out on all the upcoming beauty and outfit inspiration!
