New York Fashion Week: The Hottest Trends Week 2
Will you be playing peek-a-boo with your blouses, showing off your knees in tweed shorts, or glamming it up in a bronze mini?

As Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2010 rolled into its second week, five strong trends began to emerge: sheer, menswear, military, metallic and micro-minis. We saw slim column gowns like the Tony Francesc above, as well as full gowns at Marchesa. After looking at the sky-high hemlines and super-slim pants, we think we might need to hit the gym a little harder. Read on to learn more about what we’ll all be wearing next fall.
We’ve seen this trend peeping its way into spring, but sheer panels and more were on every fall runway. Here are some highlights: Richard Chai LOVE showed sheer georgette blouses layered with knit tops and sweaters. Diesel Black Gold had sheer tunics worn over denim, sheer skirted dresses (with an underlay of denim) and a sparkly sheer button down shirt. Max Azria’s dresses were simply cut with sheer sleeves and sheer panels, Marc Jacobs showed a sheer layered dress with sheer sleeves, Vera Wang had models sashaying down the runway in heavily beaded dresses with either sheer skirts (think Follies Bergere) or dresses with sheer sleeves. Edition by Georges Chakra also had sheer panels on his red carpet looks, while Yigal Azrouel (above) paired a sheer cobwebby turtleneck with a chunky sweater and leather pants. That seems the smartest way to wear this trend — layer it, this way you won’t catch a cold.
