The five trends you will ac­tu­ally wear from New York fash­ion week

(Plus one you prob­a­bly won’t)

‘WHAT, TH­ESE OLD JEANS?’ JEANS

Dress­ing as though you don’t have the band­with to ag­o­nise over your out­fit is a power move. Vic­to­ria Beck­ham nailed it in the run up to her show, wear­ing jeans (straight legged, 2in off the an­kle) and a plain white T-shirt of which she said: “I just haven’t had time to think about what to wear.”

THE HER­ITAGE BLAZER

This was ab­so­lutely ev­ery­where, worn with jeans, skirts or with trousers as part of a suit (seen, left, on fash­ion blog­ger Danielle Bern­stein). The ef­fect was slouchy and over­sized, a slight smarten­ing up, rather than the full hard-edged Work­ing Girl look.

YEL­LOW

Is yel­low the new pink? NYFW an­swered this, the ques­tion de nos jours, in the af­fir­ma­tive, with cat­walks and front rows full of high­lights.

There was the Haute Pur­suit blog­ger Vanessa Hong’s pale maxi slip dress to the chunky yolk-coloured jumpers at Pra­bal Gu­rung (left) and bright shots of daf­fodil and marigold else­where.

A LONG, CHUNKY JUMPER WORN OVER A MIDI-LENGTH PLEATED SKIRT

Not the kind of showy look that will guar­an­tee In­sta­gram in­flu­encers a star­ring role on street-style blogs, but this was the un­der­stated, chic sil­hou­ette that many show at­ten­dees were wear­ing, in­clud­ing ed­i­tor Eva Chen (left). Ergo, a piece of real-life style in­spi­ra­tion.

COW­BOY BOOTS

You may not have worn them since Des­tiny’s Child were a four-piece, but Raf Si­mons put them on his cat­walk for the sec­ond sea­son this NYFW (left), while cool kids such as Mil­lie Bobby Brown and Kar­lie Kloss are into them al­ready. They will soon be yee-haw­ing their way to a high street near you.

THE FRENCH CUT SWIM­SUIT

The award for most an­noy­ing cat­walk mi­cro-trend goes to the very high­cut swim­suits that were worn un­der low-slung trousers, shorts and skirts at la­bels in­clud­ing Tom Ford (left) and Fenty x Puma. Sadly, it is now in­evitable that bare hips will be the in thing by spring.
